CHICAGO (WSCR) The Chicago Bulls ended the regular season with 62 wins, the top seed in the Eastern Conference and the best record in the NBA. But they haven’t looked like that same team through their first seven playoff games.
And despite their regular season accolades, the Bulls might not be the team that the Miami Heat are most concerned about standing in their way.
“From a Miami perspective, I think the Heat have feared the [Boston] Celtics more, to be honest with you,” Greg Cote, of the Miami Herald, said on the Mully and Hanley Show. “I don’t think the Heat would say that, but from just talking to the guys down here and everything, the Celtics are the team that Miami was put together to beat.

“Having said that, there’s great respect for the Bulls…Everybody down here, including LeBron [James], thinks that Derrick Rose deserved the MVP Award. And [Luol] Deng and [Joakim] Noah are formidable, that’s a nice trio…Chicago is a nice team. I do think that Miami thinks of Boston as the bigger hurdle, which could come back to haunt Miami.”
