PLAYOFF game thread: Bulls-Heat Game 2

Haslem's out, Mourning's likely out, Wade is still kindof gimpy.

This is the game to steal. Play like they did Saturday, with some contributions from Deng and Chandler, and it can be done. Anything from them would offset potential dropoff from Gordon and their high 3-point percentage. Gordon's been playing great for weeks now, maybe this is simply his time.

I think the best thing to hope for is a dropoff in production from Shaq. Sure the Bulls were single-teaming him, but even considering that he shot a very high percentage, especially in the first half. I think if they use the same defensive scheme and avoid the turnovers that sparked the Heat fast break, the Bulls will allow a lot fewer points.

Alright! Game 2! ::excited fist pump::
