Agreed.

I think we give them considerable rest, yes. Play them a bit here and there, but nothing too much.

I agree with your Spurs assessment.

We're set to play the Pacers in the first round, correct? I mean, there's no mathematical way the Pacers can jump to seven, right?

Even if they could, though, it looks unlikely.

I can't see Thibs giving anyone considerable rest. I think his attitude is that it is a fairly young team and they can handle it. I also think that even though it's unlikely, you still probably want to try to lock up the best record in the NBA if possible.

San Antonio would have to lose their last 2 games (L.A. & Phoenix) for us to get the overall #1 record. That and we'd have to win our last 3. The latter is more likely than the former. Still great great season by the Bulls!

Re: The race for 1st

I hope Thibs is smart and at least treats these last couple games like a pre-season game, for instance.

Keep our main guys down in the 25-30 minute range. Enough to stay sharp, but (hopefully) reduces the strains and allows for some rejuvenation and recovery.

While Boozer looks recovered from his ankle sprain, I'm still a little worried about Noah's ankle.

Sure, but San Antonio only has to lose 1 of their remaining games if we win out for us to end tied, and at least earn a coin-flip chance of home court advantage.

Wow, San Antonio did lose their last two games and we did win our last 3. Ha! Best record in the NBA, here we come!

Amazing. Was there even a single one of us here that predicted that? Unreal.
