The Miami Heat are back in Miami on Tuesday and currently riding a four-game win streak as they host their Eastern Conference rivals, the Chicago Bulls. Miami is coming off a huge win against the San Antonio Spurs in the 2022 NBA Mexico City Game and should be looking to keep the momentum going as they head into this matchup with the Bulls.

Player To Watch

Jimmy Butler is the player to watch for, as he will look to lead this Heat team against his former team.

Butler is coming off a 26-point, five rebounds, and four assists game against the Spurs, as he will look to carry this performance over against the Bulls on Tuesday. He will need to be a factor on both ends of the court.

That means creating plays for his team and knocking down shots on the offensive end while causing his signature havoc on the defensive end that will result in turnovers and big plays going the other way.

The Miami Heat are back in Miami and riding a four-game winning streak. They’ll look to make it five as they welcome in the searching Chicago Bulls.

Keys to the Game

  1. Limit Fouls– The Miami Heat had a total of 27 fouls against the Spurs in their last game, one of which was a technical foul. The Heat need not commit the easy fouls, plant their feet in the paint, and not allow the opponent to get them into foul trouble early which will only hurt them close to the end of the game.
  2. Hit Free Throws– The Miami Heat went 16 of 23  from the free-throw line against the Spurs last game. The Heat need to work on making the most of the free throw line, knocking down the easy baskets, and making sure they hit them in close situations. Among the best teams in the league throughout the year thus far, they’ve seen some slippage in recent games, especially from their leader in Butler.
  3. Hold The Lead– The Miami Heat’s largest lead against the Spurs was 13 at one point. The Heat need to gain a lead, hold it through all four quarters, and not allow the Bulls to have a chance to gain the upper hand at any point in the game. They have the type of offensive players that can ruin your night if you let them get going.


The Miami Heat are currently on a four-game win streak and are looking to get back into the conversation as one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference. Miami will need to play a complete game and up until the final seconds of the game so that they may eventually walk out victorious.
