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.”
