The Miami Heat are dealing with Dwyane Wade's injury woes and saying they need to be desperate now. The Chicago Bulls are saying how excited they are for this opportunity.
Given all that, it wouldn't sound like it's the Heat who are up 3-1 in this Eastern Conference semifinal series.
Wade is still hurting, and the Heat are rolling along nonetheless. Three straight wins by an average of more than 23 points have the reigning NBA champions one win away from returning to the East finals, and they'll try to close out the Bulls on Wednesday night in Miami.
Chicago scored just 65 points in Game 4 and made only one-quarter of its shots in that matchup. Still, the weary Bulls say they've got hope heading into Game 5.
