While the goal of any sporting contest is to be the victor, there are games in which winning carries a special significance.

The case is no different with the Chicago Bulls.

Head coach Tom Thibodeau has brought a champion’s swagger back to this franchise by instilling a toughness and intensity unmatched by most other teams.
