2013 NBA Playoff Picks – Game 1 Chicago at Miami Odds


Dwyane Wade is still hindered by a bruised knee and that could limit his mobility to defend Belinelli, which is good news for the Bulls.

2013 NBA Playoff PicksThe injury-riddled Bulls deserved to move on because they played harder than the Nets, but that won’t be good enough against the Heat. Miami should win the series in five games.

While it has seemed completely obvious that Derrick Rose won’t make a heroic return to game action during the 2013 playoffs Picks, he has continued to give hope to Chicago Bulls fans by saying things like, “Who knows? It’s still up in the air.” Despite uttering those words Saturday after his teammates finished off he Brooklyn Nets in Game 7 of the first round, Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Rose already knows he is not coming back during the playoffs.

“His choice has been made to sit out the season and it includes no provisions for turning back, sources with direct knowledge told Yahoo! Sports,” he wrote.

It remains puzzling as to why Rose would continue to carry on a charade like that, because any benefit he may garner in the public eye from attempting to care about returning to action is countered by growing frustration by Bulls fans. On the other hand, fantasy junkies should be glad he isn’t going to risk re-injuring his knee by battling LeBron James, et al. Rose should enter next season at 100 percent and be a first-round draft pick.
