Bulls vs. Heat schedule: Series tipoff set for Monday

USA TODAY Sports

The Heat continue their quest for back-to-back titles on Monday night against the Chicago Bulls, the team that snapped their 27 game winning streak earlier this season.

The Miami Heat will host Game 1 of their second-round series against their rival Chicago Bulls on Monday night at 7 p.m. ET on TNT. Game 2 will be on Wednesday at the same time and also on TNT. Game 3 is scheduled for Friday at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN. The schedule for Games 4-7 hasn't been announced.

The Heat romped through their first-round series against the Milwaukee Bucks, sweeping them away in four games despite a limited Dwyane Wade. LeBron James averaged 24.5 points, 7.8 rebounds and 6.8 assists on 62.7 percent shooting during the sweep of the Bucks.

Wade sat out Game 4 against Milwaukee due to a sore knee. The Heat star has used the extra time between series to heal up and he returned to practice on Friday.

The Bulls beat the Nets in a hotly contested seven-game series, winning Game 7, 99-93, on Saturday night. Playing without Luol Deng, Kirk Hinrich and of course Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah put the Bulls on his back, notching 24 points, 14 rebounds and six blocks. Head coach Tom Thibodeau said Deng and Hinrich would both be listed as day-to-day leading up to game 1. He did not mention whether he expects Rose to play.
