The Chicago Bulls know they will be the No. 1 overall seed in the Eastern Conference when the 2012 NBA Playoffs begin. After Thursday, when Chicago goes for its 50th win of the regular season as it hosts the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Bulls will learn if they'll have homecourt through the playoffs (pending the outcome of the San Antonio Spurs game) and who their round one opponent will be.
NBA just announced Game 1 of #Bulls first-round series, regardless of opponent, will be Saturday. Time TBA.— K.C Johnson (@KCJHoop) April 26, 2012
