The Miami Heat are currently streaking towards NBA history, however, the Chicago Bulls stand in there way. The Heat are set to play the Bulls tonight with the hopes of keeping their winning streak alive and putting it at 28 games – just five short of the record. The record, 33 straight games, was set by the 1971-1972 Los Angeles Lakers. The Heat vs Bulls game start time is at 8:00 pm ET and takes place in Chicago. The Heat vs Bulls game will be televised on ESPN, however, you can also watch the Heat vs Bulls live stream online at ESPN3.com and WATCHESPN.
Here’s a preview video of tonight’s highly anticipated Miami Heat vs Chicago Bulls game.
The Heat, who’s win streak started back on February 3rd, have already beat the Bulls in the last 27 games. That game was on Feb. 21 and was a breeze for the Heat, who won by 19 points. The Bulls are on a win streak of their own though – two games – so tonight will definitely be exciting. As mentioned above all of the action will be televised on ESPN or you can live stream the Heat vs Bulls online at ESPN3.com.
Do you think the Bulls can beat the Heat and end the 27 game win streak?
ESPN Chicago’s Nick Fridell doesn’t think so. “This game is going to be very close. The Bulls want to beat the Heat badly and already have beaten them once in Miami this season. But the Bulls are different now and may not even have Noah on the floor. The Bulls have plenty of heart, they just don’t have enough offense to beat James & Co. right now.”
