Let’s cross the Magic off the list. They’re terrible. Barring 15 made three-pointers, it just ain’t happening. I could go for round two of Duke vs. UNC, though.
Let’s cross Atlanta off the list. They’re the Hawks. Come on. Somehow, they’re 2-point favorites at home against the Celtics.
Which leaves the Bulls. Banged up and trailing Philly 3-1, the Bulls should save face at home tonight. The 76ers haven’t won a playoff series since 2003. If Chicago can manage to slow Jrue Holiday and Spencer Hawes – sounds funny, doesn’t it? – the series should be headed back to Philly Thursday.
The move is probably to go to bed early and rest up for Wednesday, which will feature the Knicks/Heat and Clippers/Grizzlies.
