In the final game of the February slate, second-year head coach Billy Donovan and the Chicago Bulls are set to face the first-place Miami Heat and head coach Erik Spoelstra. This is the first road game in a few weeks for the Bulls. Their last road game came back on Feb. 9, in a win over the Charlotte Hornets.

The Bulls are coming off a tough six-point loss at home at the United Center to star point guard Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies on the night of Feb. 26. That loss to the Grizzlies snapped a six-game winning streak for the Bulls. They now come into this meeting with the Heat sporting a record of 39-22.

Meanwhile, the Heat are coming off a close 133-129 win over the San Antonio Spurs at home on Feb. 26. The Heat have won three games in a row heading into this matchup against the Bulls. They come in with an Eastern Conference-best record of 40-21.

Here’s a look into the betting odds and TV/streaming information as the Bulls get set to take on the Heat on the road at FTX Arena in Miami on Feb. 28, with tip-off time set for 6:30 p.m. CT.

This game is going to be important for the Bulls to really make a point to the rest of the NBA. The Bulls have often struggled against some of the top teams around the league this season. That was evident in their Feb. 26 loss at home to the Grizzlies.

Five-time All-Star forward DeMar DeRozan could use a strong outing in this one. He didn’t have his most efficient performance in the Bulls’ loss to the Grizzlies, shooting just 10-of-29 from the field. A strong effort from DeRozan could get the Bulls their first win of the season over one of the top three teams in the East at this point of the season.

DeRozan and the Bulls could get back on the right track and reverse this problematic trend of losing almost every game they have against one of the top five or six teams in the NBA. It goes without saying that the confidence the Bulls could gain from beating the Heat will go a long way through the stretch run of this season.
