Well, it’s official. The Chicago Bulls and the Brooklyn Nets will face off in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, beginning on Saturday. Chicago finished the season in fifth place after defeating the Washington Wizards and the Atlanta Hawks falling to the New York Knicks on Thursday night.

Chicago wanted to avoid seeing the Indiana Pacers or the New York Knicks in the first round and the team has a really good chance to not only compete with Brooklyn, but also beat them and advance to the second round.

The Bulls are finally getting healthy, and although it’s very likely we won’t see Derrick Rose come back in the playoffs, with Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and Rip Hamilton on the mend, to take a Tom Thibodeau-ism, the Bulls have more than enough to win the series against the Nets.
