What to Watch For

  • It was really nice seeing the Bulls take care of business against a team they should beat on Friday night against the Hornets. LaVine was hitting threes. DeMar and Vooch both put up 20+ points. Patrick Williams and Coby White contributed on both ends of the floor off the bench. It was an all-around effort from the Bulls. Today is going to be a much tougher test with Memphis coming into town and playing good basketball, but a win and a 2-2 record would be a successful week.
  • Now that March is in the books and the Bulls have just 5 games left, it’s a good time to look at the Eastern Conference standings. The Bulls are a game back of both Atlanta and Toronto for the 8th and 9th seeds with a matchup with Atlanta looming on Tuesday. Getting to that 8th seed would be really nice for the Bulls in terms of the Play-In, so Tuesday’s game is pretty massive. The Bulls are 2-1 against the Hawks this season. After the Hawks matchup, the Bulls close out the season at Milwaukee, at Dallas, and at home against the Pistons.
  • Looking at the Hawks and Raptors schedules, the Hawks take on Dallas today, and then after the Bulls matchup host Washington and Philly before finishing the season in Boston. The Raptors have back-to-back matchups with Charlotte today and Tuesday before a brutal finish to the season at Boston twice and then at home against Milwaukee. Looking at how the teams finish up their schedules, if the Bulls can win their matchup with Atlanta on Tuesday they should have a good chance at grabbing the 8th seed.
