UPDATE: The Bulls will take on the Brooklyn Nets at 7 p.m. central time on Saturday on ESPN. Game two will be Monday at 7 on TNT. Both game will be in Brooklyn.
The Chicago Bulls won their final game of the season over the Washington Wizards, 95-92, after John Wall missed a three at the buzzer that would have tied the game. The Bulls clinched the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference with the win, although technically they’d already done that before the game ended, as the Atlanta Hawks lost the New York Knicks, handing the Bulls the fifth seed.
The game was awful, so we won’t dwell on it. Suffice it to say that Nazr Mohammed was probably the Bulls best player for most of the game. So, you know. Yeah.
The Bulls finished the regular season with 45-37, a respectable record without Derrick Rose. It’s not the 50-16 of last season or the 60-22 of 2010-11, but it’s solid.
Anyway, with the win, the Bulls will now face the Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the playoffs, a much more desirable matchup than one with the Indiana Pacers. Game one will be on Saturday, April 20, although the time is TBA. We promise we will update you as soon as we know when the official gametime is.
