I think the Heat have to end this in Game 5 like they did in the previous two series because I feel like the Bulls have a good enough team to force the seres to game 7 if they win tomorrow

Derrick Rose is 22/23 years old. At that age, Jordan was just getting over a foot injury and going nowhere on a lousy team. Can we at least give the kid 5 years to make something happen? I mean, he's clearly got the talent, and I think he has a penchant for big games. It's totally unfair to compare any player to Jordan, but even if we do try and compare rose to the GOAT, we have to at least give him time to grow as a player before we can hold him to that standard.
At 23 years old, Jordan was already "Air Jordan," he was already scoring 37 points per game -- including 63 points in a playoff game against an otherwise invincible Celtics -- and was already making more money selling merchandise than he was as a player. And you're losing sight of the topic of this thread -- The ECF series. The issue with Rose isn't that he may not become a clutch player some time in the future, but that he hasn't been a very good player in this series when he was called upon to get it done.

I expect the bulls to outshoot the heat by at least 12 FTs tonight. Which should get them the W.

I think with a team like the Bulls you have to win the series tonight because I think the Bulls are capable of winning Game 6 in Miami. And if there is a Game 7 the Heat can forget about going to the Finals
