Multiple reports from Heat shootaround on Wednesday pegged LeBron James(notes) as being a little under the weather in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals, which may go a long way toward explaining how James missed 10 of 15 shots in the face of Luol Deng's(notes) stifling defense, while Deng dropped 22 points of his own. All it takes is one game, though, and Miami grabs the home court advantage from Chicago before heading home. The Bulls are mindful of that, but nothing they can prepare for will stop the score from being knotted at 0-0 at Wednesday night's tip-off.
So let's chat. Click the jump and have at it, around 3 p.m. Eastern. Take some vitamin C, if you're otherwise sniffly.
