Bulls Vs. Heat Preview: Chicago And Miami Meet For Fourth Time In Regular Season

The Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat are presumed to meet in the Eastern Conference finals for the second season in a row, but before the playoffs get started the two teams will face each other one more time in the regular season. The Heat host the Bulls on Thursday night with Chicago looking to run its regular season record against the Heat to 6-1 over the last two seasons.

Chicago has a 2.5 lead over Miami for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, though a Heat victory on Thursday night would certainly make for an interesting final week of regular season play.

According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, Chicago's reigning MVP Derrick Rose will likely miss his third straight game with a sore right foot. Luol Deng, who sat out in Chicago's blowout victory over the Charlotte Bobcats, believes he will play.
