This is something for Bulls fans to be nervous about, right?

My concern with the Bulls is whether anyone outside of Rose can give them dependable offensive production. People on here are saying "Chris Bosh won't drop 34 a night, so we don't have to worry about him." But can Boozer score 21 and collect 11 boards over the next couple of games? That's the bigger question, imo. Plus, Chris Bosh seemed to drop big numbers on the regular in Toronto, so I don't see any reason for him not to drop another 25+ at some point in the series. He's a proven scorer no matter how much people chide him for his perceived softness, long neck, and awkward gait.

Wade and Bron are still due for a big game, btw.

Bosh made shot after shot, hats off to him.
Bulls won the boards but Miami limited their turnovers.
Bulls still need a little more work on their offensive plan.

This makes Tuesdays game critical to win.

Heat should stick with the same defensive scheme

Let Boozer go off and focus on Rose and Deng

^^^^Yes. Deng is IMO one of the most underrated players in the NBA. He just does everything well and as such doesn't attract the attention like others.

I don't see why not. The guy was an All-Star caliber player with the Raptors averaging over 20 points a game.

More than any other guy on the Heat he's had to give up his offense to accomodate LeBron James and Dwayne Wade. He can step up if needed.

Basically of the Heat can get 75 or more points from the Big Three and everybody else contributes 25 and the Heat play good defense and rebound they can beat anybody.

But those shots that Bosh takes are not high percentage shots and I would continue to give him the same looks because I dont believe he can have the same type of game

I understand why Stern is strict when it comes to these gay slurs because he doesn't want to make it look like players in his league hate gay people. Not only that there are gay people who watch the NBA like the CEO of my company-lol
