……………………………………………………Apr. 24 at Boston

Chicago’s few games and superior bench should favor them overall. H2H games with OKC and Miami make it a bit more interesting. The H2H games can mean a lot for the top four teams. The Bulls seem safe if they win nine of their games to claim the East.

The Bulls are 2 games ahead of OKC, 3.5 games ahead of Miami and 5 games ahead of the Spurs.
************************************************

SA 35-14…………………………. …….OKC 39-12

SA played OKC twice in Oklahoma and I don’t see another game? That’s unfair if the tie-breaker is in head to head games. SA won one of the games but the point differential in playoff seeding favors OKC. Once again this seems unfair. SA got Diaw to help with the bench. OKC has more tough games than the other four teams…. SA the least.

no record is etched in stone yet. Chicago is probably losing on Sunday, so Bulls fans better hope Miami loses to Boston or the race tightens up.

I don't see why. Its not like this is a playoff series, its just one game. I can definitely see Chicago pulling this one off, especially if our roleplayers have great games like they have been.

If Deng and Boozer get hot, our chances look good.

Honestly, I only see the Heat losing maybe 2 or 3 games to either the Bulls or Thunder. They finished last season strong, so why not do the same thing here?

Chicago’s felt the absence of D Rose and lost two games - @ OKC was understandable without Rose but the lost to Houston hurt. Rose is said to come back the next game. The two remaining H2H games can mean a lot for Chicago or Miami. If Chicago wins both they would only need to win three other games to clinch best record. If Miami wins both they still won't control their own destiny but they would be equal in the lost column at this point.

The Bulls are 2.5 games ahead of SA and OKC and 3 ahead of Miami. With games running out.

OKC lost three in a row as SA won 10 straight. But got Diaw to help with the bench. OKC has more tough games than the other four teams…. SA the least. SA has a lot of back to backs even a B2b2b. OKC is a bit out of sorts and SA is peaking.

Well Spurs have the Lakers 3 more times and as you said back to backs could be a decider but the are deep. Still think Thunder are favourites to get 1st seed but they had some damn tough games this week which they lost so dunno...

Spurs play the Lakers 3x so that's 3 losses for them, I think OKC gets it.

SA is on a roll. And their bench is as well. So I expect them to ride it a bit with this next four out of five at home. SA is just so much more organized than other teams they usually beat them if the other team doesn't get practice in - like Chicago does. OKC is coming down off of a high so we don't know when that turns around. But SA's schedule is very busy and you are bound to loose some unexpected ones in them. I give OKC the better shot but I can't say so with a lot of confidence. Chicago/OKC/SA/Miami is the way I think it will go.

Two of the LA games are in SA. The Lakers never seem to have gotten their road act together and SA is a very organized team that does the little things right. LA has been beating teams late in games because the opponents system isn't that tight. The Lakers haven't been in the top tier all year so they have some motivation.

The next three games for Chicago are against loosing teams. Chicago's bench is among the best in the league and should factor in as 6 of the last 7 games are back to back. Miami has 7 of their last 8 tied into back to backs and their bench has been playing badly. More the reason why Miami wouldn't want to go thru the Knicks and Indiana before playing the Bulls. As all three of those teams come at you hard with their bench and will beat you up.
