Fans Encouraged to Wear Red to All Home Playoff Games
While their ability to hang with, let alone beat, Milwaukee in the first round of the playoffs is in doubt, one thing’s for sure: the Chicago Bulls were the draw of the 2021-22 regular season.
The Bulls rode the wave of a near-complete roster overhaul to the top of the Eastern Conference. They remained there through late February before crash landing into an ominous matchup with the defending champion Bucks.
Nevertheless, the demand to watch them play in person never cooled off.
That advantage paid dividends at home, where the Bulls (27-14) tied with the Bucks and Hawks for the third-best record in the East. But not so much on the road. At 19-22, they finished with the worst record among the dozen teams that made the playoffs outright.
Now, as the Bulls venture into their first playoff series in five years, the fans who made 856,148 trips through the United Center turnstiles are being asked to dress the part—if not supply the team with a little extra oomph in a series next to no one expects them to win.
The Bulls lost all four meetings with the Bucks this season, including a 127-106 shellacking in the season-series finale at the Madhouse on Madison on April 5.
