Key Matchup: Bulls vs. The Trap Game
It’s hard to call this one a matchup, but it’s a trap game. The Bulls beat the Heat last Thursday but they haven’t clinched the Eastern Conference yet. Miami is still just 3.5 games behind so the Bulls just need to play smart.
Last Game: Bulls beat Heat 96-86, Pistons lost to Bucks 113-97
Last Meeting: March 30, 2012 — Bulls 83, Pistons 71
Series History (Since 2002-03): Bulls lead series 22-16 **Pistons on 14 game losing streak to Bulls**
Last Minute Preview: Like we said this is more of a trap game if it has to bare a label. Derrick Rose is trying to shake off the rust and the real story will be how much he plays and how well he plays. Other than that, you may be more entertained watching Sunday Bowling.
Prediction: Bulls 97, Pistons 83
