The Eastern Conference race is going to a fun one.
Two teams currently in the playoffs battle it out when the Miami Heat welcome in the Chicago Bulls Tuesday night.
Miami currently holds the 4th spot, while Chicago sits just in at the 8th seed.
If the Bulls can stay in the playoffs and make them, this team could be a very dangerous team.
Chicago continues stick around despite many injuries to their top tier players. Jimmy Butler, Pau Gasol, and Derrick Rose all have been ailing. While Butler will be out for most of the final stretch, it’s up to Gasol and Rose to lead this team despite their injuries.
The Bulls do come in off back to back losses, this after their reserves led them to a 3 game winning streak It’s been that kind of year for them, needing a lot of different players to contribute.
It’s certainly going to be gut check time for Chicago. They’ll play 5 of the next 8 on the road, a place where they are only 11-17 SU. In their back to back losses, the Bulls have averaged just 91.5 points per game.
The Heat know a thing or two about injuries.
Miami has battled many injuries and see Chris Bosh out with a calf injury, making things extremely hard on the Heat. However, they were the beneficiary of Joe Johnson getting bought out, and signing with them.
Johnson will offer this team an outside shooter, but he also has the ability to get in the paint.
With Miami needing offense, C Hassan Whiteside has also really stepped up. Whiteside has averaged 18.8 points per game to go along with 16 rebounds over the past 5 games.
Miami has been solid at home this season, going 18-12 SU.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
Both teams really are depleted, but it’s the Heat who have the lesser of the injuries.
Joe Johnson will certainly make a giant difference, but it will take him a few games to get in. Look for the Heat to use their home court and take down a very thin Chicago team.
