The Chicago Bulls have performed much better than expected throughout this year and have overcome more challenges than most teams, including a new coach, half a new team and injuries to the starting frontcourt. Yet, the Bulls sit in first place and it appears they will be able to hold off Boston for the No. 1 seed in the East. And as the No. 1 seed the Bulls will have the privilege to play the easiest teams and work their way to the conference championship, and then the NBA Finals.
This analysis will consist of all playoff-bound teams, even though the Bulls probably will not play some. But who knows? It is March and I'm feeling some madness about upsets.
