Looks like the Bulls will get those Celts after all. The Bulls moved into the 7th seed last night with their win against the Bobcats. They play Detroit on Monday and if they win that game they will have the 7-seed locked up.
Bring on the playoffs already. The Bulls have won 4 straight and are playing great ball. Derrick Rose had 22 points on 10-16 shooting with 7 assists against only one turnover. Ben Gordon ripped nets for 39 points with 7 3-pointers. Joakim Noah had 10 boards, 7 assists (!) and 2 blocks. Best of all, the Bulls moved to 40-40 on the year. Teams with a less than .500 record in the playoffs make me feel a bit ill.
Even if the Bulls don’t win Monday night, the Pistons have a road game against Miami to end the season. The Bulls get Toronto at the UC. But it would be nice to see the Bulls win both games and end the season 42-40 with a 6-game winning streak.
