MIAMI (TICKER) —The Miami Heat try to extend their winning streak over the Chicago Bulls to five games on Saturday when they meet at American Airlines Arena.

The Heat have won their last four meetings with the Bulls, including a 102-101 double-overtime victory on January 18. They have won eight of their last 10 meetings with Chicago, which has a 34-19 advantage in the all-time series.

The Bulls have won three of their last five visits to American Airlines Arena and are 19-8 all time in Miami.

Miami completed a 1-3 road trip with an 84-79 loss to the New Jersey Nets on Tuesday.

Caron Butler scored 17 points and fellow rookie Rasual Butler added 15 as the Heat played their fourth straight game without leading scorer Eddie Jones, who is sidelined with a strained left groin.

Miami has lost three in a row and is trying to avoid its first four-game losing streak since a six-game slide from January 3-12.

Chicago has dropped 10 of its last 12 games, including a 110-96 loss at Orlando on Friday.

Rookie Jay Williams scored 20 points and Jalen Rose and Tyson Chandler added 16 apiece for the Bulls, who have lost eight of their last nine road games and are a league-worst 3-28 on the road.
