CHICAGO – Yes, it wasn’t the ending everyone was hoping for in February, but it certainly achieved the goal set in the fall.
The Chicago Bulls have qualified for the 2022 NBA Playoffs.
It ends a five-year postseason drought for the franchise as the team regained prominence in the league after teetering in mediocrity for the past few seasons. The team finished first in the Eastern Conference at the All-Star Break, but performance faltered despite a tighter schedule, leaving the team sixth seed in the Eastern Conference.
Their opponents are the third-ranked Milwaukee Bucks, who are seeking their second straight NBA championship and defeated the Bulls in the regular season.
This issue of Bulletin Board on WGN News Now looks ahead to the Bulls’ first-round playoff series against reigning NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks.
We’ll hear from DeMar DeRozan, Zach LaVine, Ayo Dosunmu and more as the team plays the postseason for the first time in five years.
Longtime Chicago sports commentator Kenny McReynolds gives us his take on the series, and we’ll see a familiar playoff theme returning in 2022.
Larry Hawley has it all in this issue of the Bulletin Board.
