So did Atlanta...And the Bulls are 4-1 against the heat so far this season including a 21 point win less than a week ago. I'm ok if you think Miami will win, but lets not act like what we have seen to this point supports that conclusion in some overwhelming fashion.

Seriously.
Heat fans still think the bulls aren't even a bump on the road when so far we've done more damage then they have to the bulls

Miami is a much better team than Atlanta. I never said that a Heat series victory is a sure lock. The point of my previous post was to say that no one should be so confident about a Bulls victory considering that they just lost at home and now have to play a very good team on the road in a high stakes situation.

This was what I was responding to.

With a tied series, Lebron James and D-Wade going up against you, and two back-to-back away games in Miami, there's a lot Bulls fans have to be nervous about.

I would note that you didn't even post after game 1. Now suddenly Miami wins a game that was in doubt down to the last couple minutes despite the Bulls shooting 33% and you are walking around here talking up the Heat.

Well, good thing the Bulls can't possibly beat the Heat in Miami should we just mail them the trophy now because they managed to finally beat the Bulls after 4 failed attempts?

P.S. Hats off to Greg for sticking with the Heat even when they lose.

No one should be confident in either team at this point. All the logic involved is pure speculation, because it is a very even series...Bulls swept the regular season, but the Heat are playing much better than they were then. Each team has advantages and disadvantages on offense and defense. I stick with my original prediction of Bulls in 7, even though I didn't post or vote in the poll in time.

And to go out on a limb here...
Series MVP: Taj Gibson.

I'd like to see the Bulls back in the title game again. But of course, losing to the Mavs or the Thunder.

Nobody's talking up the Heat. I'm not even a fan. It's the Bulls fans on here saying:

"Yeah boy! We're gonna bust Miami up like it's nothing once D-Rose's shot starts fallin' again. He just didn't play well. But our D shut down Wade and Bron easy! Time to break out the soda pop, lean back, and watch these next 3 blowouts."

So anytime D-Wade shoots poorly, it's because of the Bulls' defense. And anytime Rose shoots poorly, it's because he had a bad game.

And once the Bulls play their best, the Heat won't stand a chance. But Miami has been playing close to its best so far, and it's unlikely that they can improve much. Not as much as the Bulls anyway.

I think that pretty much captures what I've been reading on this board. That's pretty biased, imo.

I don't doubt that there are some Heat haters and Bulls fans a little too carried away so on that I agree with you.

Basically, the Heat likely need a fairly solid margin in shooting percentage to beat the Bulls. If they have a cold shooting night or if the Bulls shoot decently it will be difficult for the Heat to make up for the turnover and rebounding differential. I've backed up why I think the Bulls will prevail with a clear analysis. Granted, any given night anything can happen.
