So awesome! Boston is playing terrible right now. If we can finish strong we have the east.

Don't forget Miami. They getting another Big win with a 110-80 against the Spurs. A 30-point margin against the Spurs.

Re: The race for 1st

miami is getting scary lately, the bulls need to get the #1 spot to avoid them (or the celtics) until the ecf.

I agree, Heat are playing tremendous ball. We are lucky they had that loosing streak. This could be A one time golden opportunity for the Bulls.

Re: The race for 1st

This is where those bad losses to teams like the Sixers and Bobcats come back to haunt you. I know the Celtics could probably say something similiar but they don't need homecourt like we do. If we get the number 1 seed there's no way Rose doesn't get MVP.

We just have to keep winning. Nothing you can do to control Miami. I really want that #1 seed to avoid them and ensure home court.

Re: The race for 1st

It is incredible to me that we're the 1 seed this late in the season... definitely exceeding my pre-season expectations...

It helps that we're 12-0 in the Central division.

Re: The race for 1st

If we do get the 1 seed, I still fully expect the second round to be a hassle.

Orlando/Hawks vs. Bulls will be a tough series, and one that I certainly expect to go six to seven games.

I still prefer to play them over the Heat/Celtics in the second round, but I'm not overlooking how much of a pain that second round is going to be regardless of who we play.

Re: The race for 1st

Boston is not playing very well and they look tried to me. They have a very tough schedule the next two weeks. They play 7 games in 11 days and 2 of the 7 are on the road including NOH and NKN and the others are Hou, Ind, and Hou all of which are playing some of their best bball of the season. After these games Boston and two days off and then they play Spurs in SA.

If Boston goes 5 and 3 over these 8 games then i think the bulls are going to finish number one in the east.

Re: The race for 1st

THIS IS CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!

Yodurk, remember when I said there was no way we could possibly see the #2 spot in the East, and you said why not, who is so good to beat us?

Now, not only did we see the #2 spot, we're in the #1 spot (could just be temporarily, but we're still competing for the spot).

Rose & Thibs are unbelievable..... they're kicking but and taking names. Oh, and special shout out to Deng for doing his thing too......

The Heat lost again. This Nets game is crucial. I hope Deron doesn't want payback for Derrick Rose out playing him in Utah.

Me niether! The Nets are currently on a 5 game win streak and if we win this game then the Bulls will be on their 8th. Teams like this view a game like this as their playoffs, so I expect the Nets to play harder than normal.

Re: The race for 1st

Boston 10 games vs. teams over 500. 7 on the road 3 at home

Bulls 7 games vs. teams over 500. 4 at home 3 on the road

This works into the Bulls advantage big time and could be the difference
