While some teams are resting their stars in advance of the Playoffs, the Chicago Bulls wouldn't think of it.

The Bulls are set for a short trip to Indianapolis to face the Pacers Wednesday in Indianapolis.

Unlike other teams in the league, the Bulls don't appear set to rest their stars.

The entire team took part in practice and it looks as if Tom Thibodeau isn't planning to rest any of his players as he tries to get their rhythm and their momentum up going into the postseason.

That's more important to the head coach than anything else.

"We’re preparing for Indiana," Thibodeau said after practice.

"All that other stuff takes care of itself. We’re not looking at standings or seedings. We’re just looking at Indiana. They’ve added a lot. (David) West and (Leandro) Barbosa have been great additions. (Paul) George has developed into a terrific player. It’s a deep team. Their second unit is very quick."

Spoken like a Coach who knows what his team needs to secure home court advantage in the Conference Playoffs, no matter how he tries to downplay it.

Read on for more on how Tom Thibodeau is preparing for Indiana, the Bulls being in control of their own destiny, a breakdown of the team's easiest road to the NBA Finals and more.
