Bulls-Heat Line

The Bulls-Heat line was expected to open at Chicago -1.5 at Bookmaker.com during the early morning hours Friday. Note that the Game 2 line for the Eastern Conference Finals is also Bulls -1.5.  Check out Bookmaker.com here for the latest line on this game.  The following article pertains to Game 1.

Chicago destroyed Atlanta Thursday night by a score of 93-73 resulting in the Hawks elimination. 

Carlos Boozer scored 23 points and Derrick Rose had 12 assists, helping to seal the victory.  Chicago advanced to its first conference final since 1998.

The most impressive number: Chicago had assists on all but seven of its 31 baskets. Or, come to think of it, maybe it was this stat: The Hawks shot just 37 percent (27 of 74) and rarely got an open look.

"If anything, our defense won this game," Rose said.

Boozer, at one point, went 10-of-16 from the field, grabbed 10 rebounds and handed out five assists.

"Booze had everything going," Rose said.

The Bulls-Heat series begins on Sunday.
