Chicago Bulls Advance to Eastern Confrence Finals
The Chicago Bulls jumped out to an early ten point lead over the Atlanta
Hawks after the first quarter of last nights game six, and didn’t look back as they cruised to an easy 93 to 73 victory Thursday evening to earn a spot in the Eastern Conference Finals opposite the Miami Heat.
The Bulls got a big game from Carlos Boozer who scored 23 points while grabbing 10 rebounds, meanwhile league MVP Derrick Rose transitioned into more of a facilitator last night as he dished out 12 assists while scoring 19 points, his second-lowest of the postseason.
Chicago hasn’t advanced this far in the post-season since 1998, when Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were on their way to their second three-peat.
The Bulls were three and zero against the Heat during the regular season, but Miami’s LeBron James did not play in the first game and Bulls center Joakin Noah didn’t play in the second.
The Eastern Conference Finals between the Heat and Bulls will begin Sunday May 15th in Chicago.
