Korver’s Touch Key for Bulls Against HEAT?
He (Kyle Korver) hit one 3-pointer in each of four games and none in another. He finished the series shooting 4-of-14 from 3-point range and 7-of-22 from the field. It was his worst five-game stretch of the season.
On Thursday against the Heat, Korver hit his shots again, connecting on 6-of-8 from the field, including 5-of-6 from 3-point range, and scoring 17 points in the Bulls’ 96-86 overtime win over the Heat.
If Korver can put together a performance like that should the Bulls meet the Heat in the playoffs again, he might just be able to give that added boost to put them over the top.
“I hope so,” Korver said. “I think we’re going to need everybody to beat them in the playoffs. They’re a really great team, a really talented team. I think everyone is a little tired right now. We’re going to catch them fresh in the playoffs. But I think we’re definitely a confident team playing them.”
