Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls: A position-by-position breakdown--Miami Herald

• Heat: Mario Chalmers had a pedestrian first round but played well the second half of the season. And he played a responsible floor game against Chicago this year (17 assists, 4 turnovers), though he made only 4 of 17 three-pointers in those games. Norris Cole’s defense will be needed at times against explosive Nate Robinson.

Bulls: Kirk Hinrich missed the past three playoff games with a severely bruised calf and told Bulls reporters Saturday night that he isn’t ready yet. Without him, the Bulls used Robinson and Marquis Teague. Robinson thrived in the first round (17.0 points, 50.5 percent shooting) and is very dangerous when he’s on a roll. Derrick Rose has not publicly ruled out a return, but it would be a surprise.
Importance of Ray Allen to Miami Heat clear as playoffs continue--Miami Herald
Aside from Allen, Spoelstra has the likes of Chris Andersen (31 points off the bench in the opening three games against Milwaukee), Shane Battier, Norris Cole and former All-Star Rashard Lewis to call upon.
