Heat Broadcaster: ‘It’s All About Game 2’

CHICAGO (WSCR) The Chicago Bulls took Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals with a 103-82 victory over the Miami Heat on Sunday night. When the two teams square off again on Wednesday night, it could be a must-win game for Miami.

Most people outside Chicago, and even some inside Chicago, thought that coming into this series the Heat would advance to the NBA Finals. And for one of those people, Heat broadcaster Jim Barry, the Game 1 loss hasn’t changed much.

“If they can win Game 2, I do think they win the series,” Jim Barry said on the Mully and Hanley show.

“I think going back home is a big advantage for them, they play a lot freer. But I haven’t been given a reason to think they can win a game [in Chicago]. So I really think…it’s all about Game 2. If the Heat win that I think they win it, but otherwise I think the Bulls would be awfully tough to beat four-out-of-five.”

    This is TRUE. If the Heat wins Game#2 to even the Series they steal HOME advantage and the Bulls are in a very disadvantaged position. Heat gets the nod if this scenario plays out..

    everyone knows it doesn’t matter what happens next game, Da Boo got this thing.

    I think whatever team wins 4 games first will win the series. Just my opinion.

    I don’t bull-ieve that we would lose 3 games in Miami regardless if it went to 6 games. Tomorrow is huge though…..Da Bullssssss

  • Jose Lamas

    If we loose game two it’s Oprah’s fault! That extra day off gives Miami one more day to put Game 1 out of their minds and the Bulls have one less day to ride the momentum from Game 1- a real buzz kill courtesy of Oprah.

    There is no way the Bulls lose 4 of six to the Heat! The consistency regular season and post season prive it. Miami no bench, Bulls better defense, better coaching, and intangi-BULLS: home court advantage, deeper TEAM, less ego, nothing to lose. Bulls in 5
