Analysis

The Bulls come in having won 8 of their past 10 riding the backs of their MVP candidate Joakim Noah and possible 6th Man of the Year winner Taj Gibson. Noah has been one the most impressive players the second half of the season and has averaged 12pts/13reb/4ast in the three games against the Wizards this year. DJ Augustin has been a fantastic fill-in all year as the lead guard, and the Bulls have been here before. Nobody enjoys playing the Bulls, even though the Wizards took two of three from them this season. Experience will be the biggest difference in this matchup. This will be John Wall and Bradley Beal’s first post season, and Marcin Gortat has never been there as a major player. Not having Nene will hurt them in the paint and with playoff experience. Expect the Bulls to win the series handily.
