Post 2014 NBA All-Star Break Predictions for the Chicago Bulls

Can the Bulls maintain their momentum as they enter the second half of the season?

With the All-Star game in New Orleans in the rearview mirror, much is on deck for the Chicago Bulls as they head into the second half of the season.

Going into the break with a plus-.500 record seemed unlikely after losing their MVP Derrick Rose to a knee injury and trading long-time Bull Luol Deng to the Cleveland Cavaliers. With hard-nosed defense and a resilience that’s second to none, however, Chicago continues to grind out victories.

The Bulls have 30 games left this season and currently hold the No. 4 seed in the East, with a chance to finish in the top three. It's a close race, though, as the last six spots are separated by just 5.5 games.

Chicago’s salary-cap situation also is a big issue, as the team finds itself just a few hundred thousand dollars below the luxury tax threshold. This ties in with whether or not the Bulls will move a player or two to give themselves some financial comfort around the trade deadline.

So what will happen as the Bulls finish off the last two months of the NBA season?
