Me niether! The Nets are currently on a 5 game win streak and if we win this game then the Bulls will be on their 8th. Teams like this view a game like this as their playoffs, so I expect the Nets to play harder than normal.The Heat lost again. This Nets game is crucial. I hope Deron doesn't want payback for Derrick Rose out playing him in Utah.
With the combined salaries of Wade, James, and Bosh (and all of their contracts back-loaded), it's going to be tough for them to fill their roster with all but aging veterans. I bet Riley's going to bid hard for Kurt Thomas this offseason.Once Miami addresses a few needs they will be next to impossible to beat. The Bulls need to win this year. I can't get a measure on how dangerous this Heat team is. The Heat loose one and then they win won, that's the unpredictable behavior of a potentially dangerous team.
I don't know. It is a long way even to reach the finals.
Thank-you, :yes: put in those terms I feel a lot better.A few thoughts. First, the bulls are not 2 games ahead of Miami they are, for all practical purposes, 4 games ahead. The bulls (and Boston) only have 19 loses and Miami has 22! And both the bulls and Boston won the season seasons against Miami so both team will win tie breaker with Maimi. Thus, Miami needs to have, at least, a one game lead on both Boston or Chicago. If Miami wins it last 12 games they will be 60 and 22. The bulls and Boston have 14 games left and if either goes 11 and 3, and considering the bulls schudule, that seems very doable, they would still have a beter record than Boston. And if Maimi loses just one game out of the last 12 than the bulls and/or Boston would have to go 9 and 5 over their last 14 games for Miami to move up from number 3 in the east. Thus, i think Maimi will be the 3rd seed come playoff time and hopefully the bulls will be number one.
Finally, Boston pulled out a big win last night but they still have a really tough schudule the next 9 days inlcuding NY at NY and against SA and then chicago and Miami next month so I like the bulls chanes once the Boz comes back for number one and if Boston tanks, and they dont look very good right now, i think Miami could move into the 2 spot but the bulls will have to play bad down the strech for Miami to move into the 1st spot.
