The NBA has released the first round schedule for the Chicago Bulls/Milwaukee Bucks series. The two teams will start the series on Easter Sunday (April 17) at 5:30 p.m. CDT.
The Bulls are the sixth seed taking on the defending NBA Champion Bucks, who are the third seed. Our very own Matt Berklan did an extensive playoff preview here. The Bulls getting a week of rest should bode well for them as they prepare for their first playoff appearance since 2017.
The injury bug has bitten the Bulls all year long. A week off for players like DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine is absolutely instrumental in this series. It's a tall task to take down the defending champions and most people have the Bulls as the heavy underdog.
