NBA Eastern Conference Finals: Game 2 Preview
Last Sunday, basketball fans witnessed a spectacular Game 1, pitting MVP Derrick Rose and the Bulls against the combo of LeBron/Wade/Bosh and the Heat. To be honest, the vast majority of fans are rooting for the Bulls to win the series. The only city that wants the
Heat to win is Miami, their hometown. Outside of Miami, nobody likes the Heat. They’re much too arrogant for my taste, and they seem to think they are guaranteed a championship, because of their stacked roster. In Game 1, the Bulls comfortably defeated the Heat, 103-82. They are looking to take a 2-0 lead in the series, putting them one game closer to a spot in the NBA Finals. After their less-than-stellar performances on Sunday, LeBron James and Dwayne Wade vowed to come back strong in Game 2. I will certainly be watching them to see if they lived up to their promise. Coming into this game, the Bulls are carrying a 9 game winning streak. Their winning streak will obviously play a huge factor in the way they play tonight. They’ll be pumped for this, and I think they will be even more prepared then they were for Game 1. If that’s the case, then the Heat are going to have a hard time defending Rose and guarding Deng on the 3-point line. Plus, the Bulls won 62 regular season games, compared to the Heat’s 58 victories. The one positive that Miami is taking into this game, is that in Game 1 Chris Bosh dropped 30 points. The Heat will definitely look to build on that performance in this game. Luol Deng told media, “I think we’ve got to play better. I really do. We played really well. If you look at the final score, we won by a lot, but it really wasn’t that kind of game” (Courtesy of Sportsencounter.com). I’m super excited for this Game 2. Drop a comment and tell me what you think.
