While strolling along a Facebook page I ran across this question and thought it would be a great question to answer on here. If the Bulls were healthy would they be in the final vs. the Thunder or would the Heat still be there? Not a doubt in my mind says the Chicago Bulls would be facing off vs. the Thunder, and here is why...
The Miami Heat have struggled through out these playoffs in all series ... the Bulls struggled and ended up losing vs. the 76ers but were down two key players (Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah). Dwayne Wade hasn't shown up in the playoffs which is a big reason why they are having troubles. Despite him not coming to play very often the Bulls won many games without Derrick in the regular season including a win in Miami. With Derrick on the court being in these playoffs they wouldn't stand a chance.
The Bulls and Heat split the regular season match-ups 2-2. In the Playoffs the Heat have dipped and the Bulls come together great which gives me all the reason to believe the Heat wouldn't be in the finals tonight. I believe the Bulls would have had a great series vs. the Thunder. Now Lets cover the finals... it's not the Bulls but it's important.
Game one... As usual the Mimi heat disappear late in the game, is that because the OKC defense shut them down and KD took control of the game? A lot of it is just that the Thunder came out HOT in the second half outscoring the Heat by a big margin in the second half of play. Kevin Durant had 36pts, 17 of those came in the fourth quarter. Westbrook dropped another 27pts in the game helping the Thunder big. Dwayne Wade tapped in 19 but went 7-19 from the field and 0-2 from behind the arc. LeBron James had a good game putting in 30 but it wasn't enough to shut down Durant and the Thunder.
Game two... I predict LeBron to have another good game and Wade to have a slow start but pick-up after half. Kevin Durant, Westbrook, Harden, Ibaka are all going to play well helping the Thunder to another victory in game two tonight.
