The Chicago Bulls and the Miami Heat will both be gunning for a victory on Thursday when they meet at American Airlines Arena.

ABOUT THE BULLS (4-4): Wade, a 12-time All-Star, had his second-highest scoring output of the season while making 10-of-17 shots and contributing a season-best five steals in the loss to the Hawks. The 34-year-old is averaging 17.9 points, a distant second on the Bulls behind fellow All-Star guard Jimmy Butler (23.3), who is Chicago’s primary scoring option. Butler scored a season-high 39 points against Atlanta – his highest total since a career-best 53-point effort against Philadelphia last January – and also contributed seven assists and matched his career high of six steals.

ABOUT THE HEAT (2-4): While Riley may not give Wade the warmest of greetings, Miami coach Erik Spoelstra has remained in contact with him and understands the importance of the occasion. “That will be a special moment,” Spoelstra told reporters while admitting it will be emotional for him. “It means a lot to all of us, including myself. We know how to compartmentalize.” Miami is still adapting to not having Wade and the current top scoring options are point guard Goran Dragic (18 points per game) and center Hassan Whiteside (17.5 points, team-best 13.8 rebounds).

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Heat listed as 2½-point favorites versus the Bulls, while the game’s total is sitting at 200.

Dwyane Wade won three NBA titles in 13 seasons with the Miami Heat before departing for Chicago as a free agent last summer. Wade makes his first visit to South Beach as a visiting player when the Bulls battle Miami on Thursday.

Animosity with Heat president Pat Riley lingers from the breakdown in offseason negotiations that led to Wade returning to his hometown of Chicago. “I think you guys know I haven’t talked to him,” Wade told reporters on Wednesday. “It’s as simple as that. I think I’ve been very open and honest about my respect and love with Pat. I’ve been honest that I haven’t spoken to him since (last) season ended.” Wade scored 25 points on Wednesday but the Bulls lost 115-107 to the host Atlanta Hawks for their fourth loss in five games. Miami also has dropped four of its last five games after suffering a 97-85 road loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday.

Last time out for Miami, they were a 97-85 loser as they battled the Thunder on the road. The Heat failed to cover in the match as a +5.5-point underdog, while 182 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

In their last action, Chicago was a 115-107 loser on the road against the Hawks. They failed to cover the +3.5-point spread as underdogs, while the combined score (222) was profitable news for OVER bettors.
