I had a feeling that if any team could beat the Heat with a handful of injured players, it would be the Chicago Bulls. Their stifling play and hard-nosed defense can win them some tough games. After last night’s win, the Bulls are now 2-1 against the Heat this season. One can only imagine what the game would have been like if the Bulls were at full strength. Many people would say the Bulls would have dominated if they had their full roster, but the same people might not have stepped up and it could have been a completely different game.
With Derrick Rose still out, the Bulls would have a tough time beating the Heat in a seven game series. However, last night’s game proved the Bulls can still hang with the top teams in the league. Before the Heat game, there was speculation that Rose would possibly return, but hours before tipoff, reports confirmed Rose would not play. He says he is still unsure whether or not he will return this year.
