Miami Heat vs Chicago Bulls takes place in the NBA Playoffs Conference Semifinals Game 5 on Wednesday night with the Heat hoping to close out the series with another win tonight. The game is scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Bulls managed to shock most and claim a win in Game 1, but since then they have had to endure a tough time as the Heat have firmly taken control of the series, winning three straight games.
However, it's now the last chance saloon for the Bulls, and they must win three games in a row to take the series – any losses at all will end their season.
The Heat came back strongly from that Game 1 shock and since then have completely locked down the Chicago offense. At the other end the Heat have successfully managed to navigate the Bulls' defense, and each game has been decided by double digit point margins.
Chicago have suffered a number of key injuries at the wrong time of the year, and it is highly unlikely that Derrick Rose will be making a comeback – meaning the Bulls probably will have to use a seven player rotation for the fifth game in a row of this series.
The Bulls must turn back the clock and try to replicate what they achieved in Game 1, and hope that the Heat are off the boil tonight.
A few of the past games have almost turned into a full out fight as scuffles continuously broke out. There will certainly be no love lost between the two teams tonight and the Heat would love nothing better than to dump their rivals out with a big win in Game 5.
