The Chicago Bulls officially have their playoff opponent setVincent Pariseon April 11, 2022 at 11:00 am

The Chicago Bulls ended their season with a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. They were a dominant team in the first half of the season and then really fell off quickly. This team that was once in first place in the Eastern Conference comes into the playoffs as the sixth seed now.

Luckily, the Bulls will avoid the play-in round. That will be a play-in tournament consisting of the Brooklyn Nets, Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Hornets, and Cleveland Cavaliers to determine the 7th and 8th seeds of the Eastern Conference. Avoiding that was the most important thing for the Bulls as they finished the season with a record of 46-36.

Now we know who their opponent will be as they are going to travel north to take on the third-seeded Milwaukee Bucks. That is as unfortunate of a draw as the Bulls could have as the defending NBA Champions clearly look poised to repeat.

This Bulls organization hasn’t faced a playoff battle like this in a long time. This Bucks team is incredible and trying to have a dynasty. The Bulls stand in their way right now so it is time to focus. In the same breath, this is a young Bulls team that has a bright future. No matter what, they should not feel overmatched as they have had an enchanted season.

See you in Milwaukee.@BMOHarrisBank | #SeeRed pic.twitter.com/TDTebZ35O8

The Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks are starting to become legit rivals.

We know the main reason that the Bucks are elite and it is because of their roster. Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the best players in the NBA. There are a lot of folks out there who believe that he is number one in the league. The Bucks have an advantage just on his presence alone.

There are also other outstanding players there like Grayson Allen, Bobby Portis, Jrue Holliday, and Brook Lopez amongst others to give Giannis the support that he deserves. It is going to be fun as the Bulls try to advance while the Bucks try to keep this party going.

It is a bittersweet moment here. We know who the Bulls are playing in the playoffs (despite the skepticism) which means that they made the playoffs which is never a lock these days. Hopefully, good things come to us for this one.
