The Chicago Bulls travel to Miami, Florida today to take on the Miami Heat. These two teams met earlier this season, with the Bulls winning 116-108. Chicago comes into this game after falling to the Minnesota Timberwolves 150-126. They were horrible on the defensive end. They didn’t look good at all on the defensive end of the court, as they couldn’t get enough stops to keep that game competitive.
The Chicago Bulls are currently 11th in the Eastern Conference standings, 10 games behind the first-place Boston Celtics. On offense, they score 113.2 points per game and shoot 48.1% from the floor. They are the 15th highest scoring team per game and have the seventh best shooting percentage.
On the other hand, the Miami Heat are coming into this game after defeating the San Antonio Spurs 111-101. This was their fourth straight win. They managed to keep the streak going by being extremely efficient on the offensive end of the court. They will need to stay hot going into this game if they want to be victorious at home.
The Miami Heat are currently seventh in the Eastern Conference standings, six games behind the Boston Celtics. On offense, they score 108.1 points per game and shoot 45.1% from the line. They score the second fewest points per game and have the 26th best shooting percentage.
In short, Miami is one of the best defensive teams in the NBA and has the ability to turn it on when they want to. The Bulls have continued to slide in the wrong direction over the past two weeks, as I don’t see them waking up for this game. They have struggled on both ends of the court, conceding the 20th most points per game and receiving the 24th lowest shooting percentage from their opponents.
