The Bulls have won three of their last five games but lost their possession of the tenth seed as the Wizards surged past them.

This week presents a huge challenge for the Bulls who’ll face four Eastern seeds – the Heat, Knicks, Bucks, and Hawks. In fact, of their final 12 games, they play only two teams who aren’t top eight seeds and one of those is against the Raptors.
Adding to the troubles facing the Bulls is Zach LaVine remains out having missed the last six games due to health and safety protocols.
Although the team won three times in his absence they’ve struggled against the top squads losing to the Grizzlies and Heat without LaVine.
The most recent loss found Nikola Vucevic trying to pick up the slack with a double-double of 26 points and 14 rebounds plus six assists. Coby White led the scoring with 31 points.
Troy Brown Jr. (ankle) LaVine (protocols) were out Saturday and likely out again Monday.
While the Bulls are fighting to get into the play-in tournament the Heat is trying to climb up out of it. They begin the week in a virtual tie with the Celtics but seeded below them in seventh.
In their most recent game, four Heat players scored 20 or more points. Bam Adebayo delivered a double-double of 20 points and 10 rebounds.
Jimmy Butler provided his typical effort with 20 points, eight assists, five rebounds, and four steals. Duncan Robinson had the top score with 23 points while Kendrick Nunn scored 22 points.
Goran Dragic (back) missed the match Saturday but should play Monday and Gabe Vincent (knee soreness) is probable.
Tyler Herro (foot) also missed the game Saturday while Kendrick Nunn (elbow) played but both are questionable for Monday. Andre Iguodala (hip soreness) and Victor Oladipo are both out.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
Although the Heat has the experience and grit they’ve failed to provide the consistent effort. In the past, it was easy to state Miami would simply bring the defense and grit required but even at this late stage that’s not a certainty.
Alternatively, the Bulls seem to have so much young talent but ranking 17th offensively and 20th defensively also doesn’t sound like a playoff-worthy team.
Despite winning the rebound, assists, fast break, and points in the paint battles the Bulls still lost Saturday and I’m leaning toward Erik Spoelstra making enough tweaks that the Heat wins with a stronger effort.
