Default Bulls strategy for series against Heat

In your opinion, what is the best strategy for the Bulls to use? Personally, I like the idea of allowing Bosh to have those 15-17 foot jump shots and have Noah and Boozer closing any holes to the hoop. That way, LeBron and Wade either have to rely on Chalmers/Miller or settle for jump shots themselves. Bosh by himself isn't going to win Miami a series.

I almost want Chicago to finish 2nd because that would all but guarantee a Bulls/Heat second round matchup.

Play good D.


Once the big three shots aren't falling they lose focus easily.

Even if Bosh shoots 50% from the field, if you force Wade and LeBron into jump shots, games of 6/19 or 7/23 from the field are very possible. I personally let Bosh have all the 15-17 foot jump shots he wants. If you shut down two of them, it's next to impossible for Miami to win. They don't have Chicago's depth.

Just do what the Bulls have been doing. Shut down the lane, and force them into jump shots. The Bulls got to foot speed to keep them out of the paint. Bulls match up well with the Heat.

question becomes, can Chicago shut down Lebron/Wade for a 7-game series...very unlikely. they'll do good in spurts but I'd be damned if Wade or Lebron were kept quiet all series long...the talent is just to heavy IMO

it will be GREAT series though...no doubt about that!

shut one of lebron/wade down, let bosh take jumpers

heat will need to rely on consistent jump shots and some 3s

if the Bulls take the 1st seed than I'm not even sure if these two teams ever meet in the play-offs

This, I agree with. Infact this applies to anyone that faces heat, infact this applies to most teams.

They don't have to shut them down for a series, just a couple of games which is very possible. The thing the Bulls do well is run people off of shots and force them into bad shots.

So the thing they would need to do is shut down their shooters for most of the series, limit lebron's passing options and le tthe Big three beat them by themselves.

This was evidenced in the last game. All of the Big 3 had over 20 points and they still lost. This is what the Bulls do to teams with star players. They limit their options and force them into terrible FG%.
