ABC will broadcasts its first Sunday NBA game since Christmas, giving a rematch of the Eastern Conference Finals to the masses as the Chicago Bulls will visit the Miami Heat at 3:30 p.m. ET. It is the first meeting between the two clubs since Miami pummeled Chicago 4-1 last spring to win a trip to the NBA Finals. The Heat fell to the Dallas Mavericks in six games in the championship series.
Both the Bulls and Heat are national TV regulars, and as possibly the league's best current rivalry, it's no surprise they'd be featured in ABC's return to action. The teams are also No. 1 and No. 2 in the East. Chicago leads the conference standings at 17-4, and Miami follows two games back at 14-5.
ABC will broadcast just one game on Sunday, but ESPN will pick up San Antonio Spurs-Dallas Mavericks at 6:30 p.m. ET.
