PLAYOFF game thread: Bulls-Heat Game 5

Most important game in the post-Dynasty era? Except perhaps next game...

Biggest pre-game news: Tyson Chandler is slated to play tonight.

I'm kindof bracing for a beatdown 'statement' from the Heat...but if they keep up what they've been doing the Bulls can continue to keep the pressure on and have a chance to win. The officiating of Shaq will be huge, as I almost expect the refs to overcompensate for the foul 'discrepancy' of game 4. If Shaq stays on the court for his usual minutes it could get ugly.

But I suppose either way, tonight will tell us how much the past 2 game meant.

Lets go Bulls!
