Tomorrow night, the Chicago Bulls will begin their anxiously-awaited postseason journey. Taking on their biggest rival and a team that swept them in the regular season, the Milwaukee Bucks, is not a task for the faint of heart.

Billy Donovan’s crew has seen their rise come to a halt, and in a hurry, over the past two months. After sitting atop the Eastern Conference, even after suffering so many injuries and being able to overcome them, the Bulls fell hard and fast.

Chicago enters the postseason as the sixth seed, while the Bucks finished at a modest number three seed.

Although not at the top of the conference, the Bucks are still favored to come out of the East by many. After all, they are the reigning champs. But, the Bulls have to give them a fight in this first round.

The Chicago Bulls have to steal Game 1 against the Milwaukee Bucks if they want a chance in this series.

If the Bulls stand any chance at making this a competitive series, they have to come out hungry and physical on Sunday night. This cannot be another one of those games where the Bulls come out flat, going down double digits early on.

The Bucks are not a team to mess around with. They are very deep and boast maybe the best all-around player in the game, in Giannis Antetokounmpo.

So, how do the Bulls withstand the onslaught from Milwaukee? How on earth do they have any chance to make this a series when many are picking the Bucks to sweep?

There are a few keys to stealing Game 1, starting with someone having to take a step back and allow others to shine.
