The Miami Heat are prepared to run right through the banged up Chicago Bulls.
The Miami Heat come into the second round of the playoffs on a full week’s rest prepared to face the hobbled, but inspired Chicago Bulls. The world champions dispatched the 8th seed Milwaukee Bucks in four games — allowing time for rest and treatments.
The Bulls survived a seven game war with the Brooklyn Nets. Nate Robinson continued to carry the offense, but the Bulls defense remains the team’s calling card. Joakim Noah is playing like a man on a mission despite suffering from plantar fasciitis. Injuries to Luol Deng and Kirk Hinrich have left the Bulls with major uncertainties going into this series.
