Bulls in tight race for play-in tournament spot

It’s a tight race in the East to stay alive for the playoffs, and the play-in tournament that proceeds it. Via the Chicago Sun-Times:

The Bulls are one game behind the Wizards, who lost to the Spurs, for 10th place in the East and the last play-in berth.

The Raptors won, so they’re tied with the Bulls, and they face each other one more this season.

“We’re definitely aware of where we are and what’s going on,’’ Young said. “[The Wizards are] playing really good basketball, and we’ve got to figure out ways to win basketball games. Our approach to every game has to be the same: Win at all costs because everything is on the line from this day forward.

“It’s been on the line.’’

Through yesterday’s games, the East seeds are Heat at 7, Hornets 8, Pacers 9, Wizards 10, then the Bulls and Raptors right behind the Wizards. Way off in the distance are the Cavs, Pistons and Magic.
