    Default 2017 NBA Playoffs: (1) Boston vs. (8) Chicago

    This might be the closest 1/8 we've had in a few years. Boston has been struggling lately on defense and the Bulls found their second wind, as well as their second Dwayne Wade. Do I see a historic upset? No, but I think the Wade/Butler combo is more than Boston can easily handle.

    Prediction: in 6

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
    NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004

    So bulls choking to BKN got them an easier Boston opponent?

    Shame for us lol could've easily upset Boston in round 1.

    Boston in 6, think their overall talent wins out but I feel the Bulls have the best player in Butler and a vet in Wade who plays well in playoffs.

    LOL. All we can go by now is the regular season in which Boston easily took care of Indiana.

    Boston are pretty good I'll give you that. But compared to Cleveland assuming they will turn up in the playoffs, there is no comparison.

    I'd rather play you guys no disrespect rather than Cleveland.

    I really love me some Isaiah and want to see him have some playoff success.

    Chicago has Butler. If Wade can turn back the clock once or twice, then things get extremely interesting.

    Boston in 6. But it'll be a close 6.

    If Playoff Rondo makes an appearance, this series will be great. Also never underestimate playoff Dwayne Wade. Bulls as a team might suck, but they have players, who can take over. Although not as quick as before, just remember Dwayne Wade carried the Miami Heat down from two games to win four straight to win the NBA championship. He was unstoppable.

    Boston in 7, hopefully we see a Jae Crowder meltdown.

    Jimmy Butler is the best player in this series. This reminds me a lot of Pacers vs Toronto last season actually. I agree with Boston is 6. But it will be a tough series.

    Celtics in 6, easier than most think.

    Tied after three quarters in Game 1. If Chicago beats Boston, I'm going to be so angry at Cleveland for not getting the No. 1 seed!

    They needed to get Butler or PG. From the sounds of things they weren't willing to drop a lot of their assets to make it done, like it was a big deal when they offered the Nets pick this year for PG. They don't need a guy they have to wait 3-5 years on unless they plan on dominating once LeBron is gone.
