Heat versus Bulls April 12, 2012

The two top teams in the East will meet on April 12, when the Miami Heat visits the United Center to take on the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls own the best record in all of the NBA at 44-14. The Bulls have won six of ten, but once again may have to play without their most valuable player Derrick Rose. Rose missed 20 games due to a groin injury and is now nursing a sore ankle and will be a game time decision. If he cannot play, it will greatly impact the game’s outcome.

Miami has struggled of late and even though they are only three games behind the Bulls in the Eastern Conference, they are just 5-5 SU in their last 10 games. The Heat does not have anyone currently injured.

In head to head games, the teams are deadlocked. Both teams are 5-5 SU over the last 10 games between them. The Bulls are 6-4 ATS in those same 10 games. The two teams have played twice this season. Both teams have won on their home court. Miami beat Chicago 97-93 in late January but failed to cover a 4 ½-point spread as the favorite. Last month, the Bulls beat the Heat 106-102 and covered a 3-point spread as the favorite.

Miami is 3-1 SU in their last four games including victories over Philadelphia, Detroit and West leading Oklahoma City. Chicago is just 1-3 SU over their last four games. Their only win in that stretch was over the Boston Celtics. Their losses included New York, Houston and Oklahoma City.

This game will come down to Derrick Rose. If Rose plays and is effective, the Bulls will defeat the Heat. If Rose plays and cannot go 100% or does not play at all, the Heat will steal a victory on the road against the Bulls.
