    Default 2013 NBA Playoffs: (1) Miami vs. (5) Chicago

    Well, to be honest, I think the bulls will give the heat a better series than the nets would have. Chicago has some of the best chemistry and defense in the entire league.

    Unfortunately, heart won't get them past Miami, and short of a miracle comeback from Derrick rose, Chicago isn't going to last long.

    Prediction: in 5

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Didn't the Heat close them out in 6 two years ago with Rose? Yeah, Miami has this one in the bag.

    Yup Heat won 4-1, Heat won 4 straight after getting blown out the first game.

    I'll say Heat in 5 games, Bulls will one through grit and determination, but each game hopefully should be competitive.

    I just don't see how Chicago will have the firepower or energy to win more than one here. But I thought the Nets would win that series.

    Miami in 5.

    Heat in 5.....maybe 6....if the Bulls are lucky. But I think the Heat will be fighting for these wins....they won't be steam rolling the Bulls like they did against the Bucks. To me, you don't underestimate a defensive minded Team that runs a system like the Bulls.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    For the love of everything sacred and holy in life, can we please get some Derrick Rose to inject some intrigue into this series?

    Rose basically said:

    His body doesn't have basketball muscle memory and he thinks it will cause the bulls to be a worse team than the way it is right now.

The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    The most intense I saw LeBron this season was the last five minutes of the game Chicago won to break the 27 game win streak, so I expect him to come out try to annihilate the Bulls in this series. Still pretty tough to sweep a team that good on defense so I'll say Heat in 5.

    the bulls are a good team that riding high on emotions so they could can take a game but Miami wil take the series in 5.

    I'm picking another Heat sweep. The Bulls are too beat up, and the Heat have enough respect for the Bulls that they won't sleepwalk through games like they did in Milwaukee.

    The Heat's all-time greatness is the most fascinating subplot of this playoffs to me. If they can get through these playoffs with 2 to 3 losses, they will rank as a top 5 or top 10 all-time team in NBA history. Looking at the rest of these Eastern Conference series, I wouldn't rule out two more sweeps by Miami. The key is just how injured Dwyane Wade really is.

    Personally, I think there's a chance in the back of Miami's minds that they're playing for something bigger than just an NBA title. They're playing for their place in all-time NBA lore. It started during that 27 game win streak, and I'm not sure it's completely gone. That's the most interesting part of this series to me.

    This may be grasping at straws and it's definitely premature, but let's say we beat the Knicks in 6 or 7 games, and Miami sweeps Chicago. Could that work in our favor? Basically, the rest vs rust argument here. If it did, I would think it would have to be the first game, but over the series, it wouldn't be enough.
