After a big upset in Game 1, the Bulls look to take a remarkably commanding 2-0 lead after two games in Miami against the Heat. Find NBA playoff odds at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Bulls (1-0) were able to win an absolutely huge game to begin the series against the Heat. By winning a road game, the Bulls can just take care of business on their home court and they will be moving on to the Eastern Conference finals. Obviously, that is easier said than done but this Game 1 victory is absolutely huge for the Bulls and their chances of moving on. Nate Robinson played 40 minutes and scored 27 points to lead Chicago. Robinson added nine assists. Jimmy Butler played all 48 minutes for the third straight game and was able to score 21 points. Butler guards the oppositions best player while still playing every minute. In Game 1, Butler defended LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
This was a huge loss for the Heat (0-1). The Bulls were the team that ended the Heat’s streak at 27 earlier in this regular season and now the Heat dropped a home game to the Bulls in Game 1 of this series. Now Miami will have to really buckle down the rest of this series but it is still very early. LeBron James scored 24 points, had eight rebounds and seven assists to lead Miami.
Chicago is 4-4 against the spread this post season and 1-0 against the Heat this round. The Heat are 3-2 ATS in this playoffs and 0-1 when playing against Chicago.
I don’t see the Heat losing in Game 2. They will definitely take down the Bulls in Game 2 but the points are too many so take the points with Chicago at online sports books.
