Miami Heat vs Chicago Bulls takes place Friday night in the Eastern Conference Semifinal Game 3, with the series currently tied at 1-1 and with everything finely balanced. The Heat will believe momentum has firmly switched back to them after their big Game 2 win, but the Bulls will be hoping to get their noses back out in front tonight. The game is scheduled to tip off at 8 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
In Game 1, the Bulls managed to steal a tight game with a brave team performance, however, the Heat and LeBron James replied in style in Game 2 with a dominating performance that completely overwhelmed the Chicago team. That Game 2 result ended up being a record margin of victory and loss for both franchises.
The series has not moved to Chicago though and the Bulls will be confident they can give as good as they can take in the upcoming three games here.
The Bulls will want to see more of that defense that was so efficient in Game 1. They did a fantastic job in that game of forcing the Heat to move the ball away from LeBron James, covering him effectively and funneling the play elsewhere on the perimeter. That put more pressure on some of the others players and led to a low three pointer shot percentage.
But in Game 2 Miami changed things up significantly and laid out 115 points against the Bulls, with Norris Cole and Ray Allen assisting LeBron James magnificently in the scoring.
The Bulls will have to slow down the Heat offense tonight if they are to keep this a tight one.
