Chicago Bulls Clinch Eighth Spot in the Eastern Conference

The NBA regular season is officially in the books and all the playoff spots in the Eastern Conference have finally been clinched with the Chicago Bulls wrapping up the eighth spot with a win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night.

It has been a tough last month of the regular season for the Chicago Bulls as their chances of heading into the playoffs seemed to change of a daily basis, but all the hard work and impressive play has paid off as they are finally playoff bound.

Even though they have gotten over hump and were able to hold off the Toronto Raptors from clinching the eighth spot in the East, the Chicago Bulls will have their biggest challenge in front them with LeBron James and company licking their chops as they see a sweep on the horizon for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Obviously, the Chicago Bulls will most likely, if not almost certainly, being knocked out in the first round of the playoffs against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but there is definitely hope for the future as this team has seen what it can do when they have a goal in mind and it is a do or die situation.

I believe Derrick Rose and company still have a ways to go before they can compete with the best of the best in the Eastern Conference, but they do have a promising future and if they can snag a big name free agent in the offseason they might become a serious force to be reckoned with in the East sooner rather than later.

For the time being though, Vinny Del Negro will have daunting task ahead of them as they try to do all they can do to contain LeBron James and try to win some games in this seven games series.

Personally, I see a sweep here as the Bulls just don’t matchup well with the Cavs and Cleveland seems destine to go all the way this season, but I won’t be surprised to see the Bulls steal one game at home.

Unfortunately, it will only be one game, unless the Cavs suffer a serious injury to LeBron.
