The 2011 Heat vs. Bulls series had high expectations.

The NBA playoffs have moved to the second round, and all of these teams have met before in the playoffs.  These matchups will become a lot more competitive as they reflect on some of their previous battles.

The teams are very familiar with their opponents' styles, and don’t be surprised if the action gets a little chippier. They know that there are still two more rounds until the NBA Finals, and they want to advance as soon as possible.

Some of the previous matchups were epic with Hall of Famers going toe to toe with other Hall of Famers.  Other matchups feature teams that have only been dominant for a few years. 

Let’s take a closer look at the best times these teams faced each other in the past.
