No. 1 Seed
The Chicago Bulls currently have a half-game lead over the Boston Celtics for the top-seed in the Eastern Conference.
On the Chicago Bulls’ last trip to Atlanta, the team spoiled a 19-point lead.Derrick Rose guaranteed that a similar collapse wouldn’t happen again.
Through the first 68 games of the season, the Chicago Bulls and the Boston Celtics have identical 49-19 records and are tied for the top spot in the conference race, but don’t expect anything to change all that soon.
It’s a three-horse race in the Eastern Conference for the No. 1 seed and home-court advantage in the playoffs. Chicago is the hottest team in the league right now, winners of eight in a row.
