Bulls and Heat Begin Series TonightMIAMI (AP) - The Chicago Bulls took yesterday off to rest weary bodies. The Miami Heat put mouth guards in place and went to work, finally knowing their opponent in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Game 1 of the Bulls-Heat series is tonight in Miami, with the teams coming off very different weeks.
Chicago fought injuries and illness, then went on the road to win Game 7, oust Brooklyn and advance. Miami did not play at all, after sweeping Milwaukee in the first round and waiting impatiently for either the Bulls or Nets to advance.
The Heat say they'll be ready to get the Bulls' best effort. And the Bulls will surely be teeming with confidence after beating Brooklyn, plus not being that far removed from snapping Miami's 27-game winning streak.
