The Chicago Bulls face the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 1 of their opening round series in the 2012 NBA Playoffs on Saturday.
The Chicago Bulls will open up the NBA Playoffs as the No. 1 overall seed on Saturday afternoon against the Philadelphia 76ers. Chicago went 2-1 against Philadelphia in the regular season.
The Bulls will be a heavy favorite in the series, as the 76ers, who once looked formidable, tumbled down the Eastern Conference standings in the second half and were barely able to hold off the Milwaukee Bucks for the final spot in the playoff picture. Philadelphia does present unique size and athleticism issues and should matchup with Chicago better than most teams.
