Eastern Conference Finals Preview

Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls

D-Wade and Lebron James led the Heat past the Boston Celtics to move onto the Eastern Conference Finals. The Heatles will take on Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls in what should be a high-intensity, hard-fought battle of a series. The 1-seed Bulls will look to pressure D-Wade and Lebron and force others to beat them on the offensive end, while Miami will look to do the same to the league’s MVP and Bull star point guard, Derrick Rose. Rose led the Bulls past the Pacers and Hawks, while Carlos Boozer finally chipped in on the offensive end in game 6 to help eliminate Atlanta. Boozer will be the key for the Bulls to win this series, without offensive production from the big man, the Bulls will struggle.

Prediction: The MVP, Derrick Rose, and Coach of the Year, Tom Thibodeau will lead the Chicago Bulls to a team series victory in 7 games. Miami will rely heavily on the individual play of Lebron and Wade, but it will not be enough to beat the team effort and home court advantage of the Chicago Bulls. Bulls in 7.
