NBA FREE PICK: Take Chicago. According to latest NBA trends, Chicago is 4-0 ATS last 4 following a double-digit loss at home and 4-1 ATS last 5 Monday games. The Bulls could have easily covered Game 3. They were covering the whole game as the largest lead was at the end when the Heat, who made 26-of-30 free throws, put the hammer to the Bulls. Chicago had another strong performance from double-double machine Joakim Noah, who had 15 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. The Bulls shot a respectable 46 percent from the floor, but they lost the game by allowing the Heat to shoot 50 percent from the field. LeBron James didn't have a great game (6-of-17 shooting), but did score 25 points and made all 11 of his free throw attempts. Chicago could get Luol Deng (illness) back as he began practicing, but it would be for a limited time. Having Deng back could give the Bulls that emotional lift needed. Even if he does not return, expect the Bulls to go all out at home tonight and even if they don't win the game outright, they will cover with ease.
