Two down, one to go.
The idea as the All-Star break settled in was that for the unofficial second half of the NBA season, the Toronto Raptors were going to look to secure a third place finish in the East. That meant not only beating up on clubs like Cleveland, Milwaukee and Detroit, but also several Eastern Conference foes who were jockeying for position beneath Toronto.
In this group, one would likely list the Atlanta Hawks, the Washington Wizards and the Chicago Bulls, who make up the fourth, fifth and sixth seeds in the East currently. Toronto easily dispatched with the Hawks prior to the All-Star break, and last night put the Wizards to bed so that leaves only the Chicago Bulls...
It's a back-to-back and these Bulls have been as resilient as ever even in the face of major personnel losses so I'm expecting a good fight tonight!
