Shying away from the word "intriguing", we'll now look at what may be the most important games for the Bulls in the 2010-11 season.
This tough trio of games starts with the team's fifth-to-last game of the season when they welcome the reigning Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics to the United Center on April 7th.
They then travel to Cleveland the next day (April 8th) and finish up two days later (April 10th) at Orlando.
The stretch, that includes the three powerhouses of the Eastern Conference for the last couple of years, couldn't come at a more important time for Chicago, when every game means the most.
It may be deluded a little bit by the inevitable slide that Cleveland will experience A.L. (After LeBron), but they should still be a playoff team. They may even find themselves in a position much like the Bulls did this season in which they're on the playoff bubble.
The way that Chicago plays through this tough stretch could give them the momentum heading into the playoffs, or it could absolutely kill it.
Luckily for them though, they finish up the season at New York and against the New Jersey at home. Phew.
