I don't why the Hawks would want to lose. As a Bulls fan I'm praying they take the 5th spot tonight. Who cares who you play in the second round. If they're serious about these playoffs (I'm not saying they should be) you'll have to play Miami sooner or later most likely.

I'd much rather play Brooklyn than Indiana that's for sure.

So why would you want the Bulls to get the 6th seed ?

I guess you would much rather play Brooklyn than Indiana and if the Bulls are serious about the playoffs they'll have to play Miami sooner or later.

That's your words,not mine

Yeah that's my bad with 'they' I meant my Bulls, should've made that more clear.

Knick-fans should also root for Bulls to take 5th seed. Heat will be tired after a tough 6 or maybe 7 game series against Bulls right before a potential ECF vs Knicks.

I want the Bulls to get the 5th seed. Hopefully they can beat the Nets and then play hard against Miami in the 2nd round.

Hawks coach Larry Drew is fighting for his job and a second round sweep from the Heat is not gonna keep it. Hawks going to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since ever might.

Making the second round might be a bit better than getting swept by Indiana.

But yeah okay I see your point. I don't agree with the philosophy though.

.

I love when people say that. The whole point is to make it as far as you can. Who knows, maybe someone will beat the Heat before you have to play them.

I'm glad my Knicks avoid the Heat until the ECF. But that's just me.....I'm sure if you were a Bucks fan, you are happy to play Heat in the first round. "Well we got to play them sooner or later....let's get this over with....bending over."

Well get over that thought because you'll be playing the Bulls because Atlanta is going out there to lose.

I have a question. Why are all the games on at 8 PM and not 7 or 7:30 PM like they usually are.


Need to get bottom of this.

I think ESPN was allowed to flex whatever they wanted so everything was put at the same start times for the last game. It happens on TNT days if you notice, both games often start at 8pm instead of normal 7:30.
