The oddsmakers are off of their rocker in this series. The implication is that perhaps Chicago really can stick around in this game, when in actuality, we think that this first game is going to be over within the first 15-20 minutes of action. The Bulls are just far too beat up right now. F Luol Deng, if he plays, is only just getting out of the hospital with an illness. G Kirk Hinrich is going to be asked to get back in the fold if he is able to after missing three of the seven games in the series against the Brooklyn Nets with a hamstring problem. C Joakim Noah is playing well, but he is playing through plantar fasciitis that probably would require the average player to be sitting for at least a few weeks. It just isn’t a pretty situation to be playing in against a team who only lost three games this year at home while it was trying to play real ball. The Heat haven’t broken a sweat yet in these playoffs, and they remember what the Bulls did to them when these two met in the Windy City in March. That was the game that ended Miami’s 27-game winning streak, the second longest streak in NBA history. You can bet that F LeBron James and company want to get some revenge, and they have been thinking about this Game 1 for the last seven days since finishing off the Milwaukee Bucks. This one won’t even be remotely close.
