So Chicago Bulls lost to the Denver Nuggets and will probably do the same against the Portland Trail Blazers. They Lack size, and they seem out of sync. With Gibson being unstable, Rose being off on Defense, and just not enough offense against a homey team like Portland, Bulls don’t stand a chance. This will leave the Bulls 6-5, while Miami Heat with a very easy schedule next to Orlando Magic Phoenix Suns Cleveland Cavaliers and The Toronto Raptors could possibly end up with a 13-3 record and a good 9 game winning streak before going into December, where they will face Charlotte Bobcats The Detroit Pistons and finally the Bulls.
Of course Bulls will also have some winnable games like going back to Detroit to face the Pistons, Utah and Cleveland. But their outlook doesn’t look that good. On the flip side is Indiana Pacers who are also the other ‘big‘ threat to the Miami Heat, wont face them until the 10th of December. With Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers, Charlotte Bobcats, and Washington Wizards leaving only Minnesota Timberwolves becoming the only real threat.
The prospect records would be something like this:
So new season and the two time defending champion Miami Heat was great. The new season is a bit slow and there are some talk about being a bit out of rhythm and chemistry. However LeBron and Wade are pretty much on top physical shape and I think once they glue better they will also be unstoppable like always.
Miami however would and should be coasting and don’t really need to have another streak. At least not yet. After all media would be media but the real test comes when they reach the playoffs.
Miami has indeed show up against the stronger teams like the Clippers, Bulls, and even Brooklyn, but the smaller teams like Celtics, 76ers, and others have been rather relaxed.
Personally I think that this is something that doesn’t need to pay as much attention until we can get some real playoff positioning. The most important thing is to preserve health.
Yesterday the first game of the Miami Heat. With the awesome plays of Chris Bosh and a couple of highlights by LeBron. Even if it was just a pre-season game, it was a pretty awesome matchup.
From the start Miami remind the Hawks what Heat was all about last year. Stretching leads almost to 22 pts and with the a 4th quarter benched LeBron, this looks like the continuation of what last year game plan was.
Chris Bosh showed up with spinning moves and dunks and making 15 pts for the first half of the game, he errased his doubts of the 0pts performance on that last game. The boy can and will score.
Miami didn’t played Wade nor Birdman, UD and his new premier faces like Michael Beasely and Greg Oden. But they did show up and they did squashed the Hawks.
From Atlanta’s part they did played the Utah imported Paul Milsap. And he looked okay, he will definetly find himself accomodated with Al Harford on their front court.
