Default 1st Round Mentality

I'd like for our Bulls to come out with the mindset that we need to play with major intensity, come out full throttle and really try to sweep the first round. I think this will be extremely important. Those extra days rest will be a big help.

The way things are lined up now we would play the Sixers and we should really be able to sweep them.

Let Miami fight it out with New York and hopefully the Knicks can push them to 6 or even 7 games.

Boston I think will be in a 6 or 7 game series against Atlanta.

So we'd be rested going against a tired Boston team and then Miami will hopefully have a tough series against New York and then Indiana.

Let's go Bulls!!!!!!!

Agree 100%, and I think the Bulls realized this. We learned last year that every opponent needs to be taken seriously, including the first round. Pacers gave us a hell of a dog fight, and I can see Sixers doing the same. Need to put the hammer on strong, and let them know why they are going against a 1st seed team.

I like our path to the ECF. Sixers will probably get a couple from us because they play us ridiculously well, even though they seem to rebelling against Collins.

And then either Hawks or C's? that could and should be a sweep.

They can't go into the playoffs like last season. They need to get off to a hot start and wrap up the the first and second round in 4 or 5 games each.

I wouldn't mind going in to the ECF with 5 and then 6 games, but not the same way as laster. the Bulls made things way too hard on themselves last year.
