The Heat (2-1) won a huge game in Chicago to retake home court advantage for the rest of this series. If they can win Game 4 in Chicago, they will have a chance to close out the series in Miami in Game 5. Chris Bosh stole the show for the Heat with his 20-point, 19-rebound performance. Bosh played 42 minutes and was 8-16 from the field. LeBron James flirted with a triple-double as he scored 25 points and added eight rebounds and seven assists. James was a perfect 11-11 from the free throw line and the team was an impressive 26-30 from the line during Game 4. Norris Cole shot 6-7 from the field in Game 4 and scored 18 points in just 24 minutes.
Chicago (1-2) is a danger zone right now and will need to win Game 4 to have a chance in this series. They most likely will not win Game 5 in Miami even though they beat them in Game 1. All five of the Bulls’ starters scored at least 15 points and Carlos Boozer led the team with 21. Boozer was 10-16 from the field and played only 29 minutes, the least amount of playing time for any of the starters.
Miami is 5-2 against the spread in the postseason and the Bulls are just 4-6 ATS.
I am thinking that this is going to be a five game series after Game 3. The Heat are too strong and will win Game 4 and end this series in five games. The Bulls are a very proud team and work hard which is why I wouldn’t be surprised if the Bulls pull out the upset but they cover the point spread in this game with sportsbook betting.
