Bulls vs. Sixers: A Look At the Schedule

Last year at this time the Bulls were closing out the Eastern Conference for the first time since 1997-98. This year they’re preparing to make another championship run in that very same No. 1 seed. This year the Bulls get the Philadelphia 76ers who are limping into the playoffs and probably won’t win more then one game against the Bulls.

We’ll have more series analysis as we get closer to the game but for now let’s take a look at the dates you need to clear in your calendar so you can catch the Bulls in playoffs.

The Bulls should be done around game four or five in this series and they shouldn’t go a game six unless Derrick Rose has some serious issues or the Sixers get a sudden burst of confidence.
