EC PLAYOFFS RD 1 : (1)CHI BULLS vs (8)PHI 76ERS
KEY ROTATION PLAYERS:
The one upside PHI has going in to this series is they can play to a standstill one of CHIs biggest advantages, which is their bench. CHIs bench is arguably the best in the NBA, but PHI comes off the bench with 4 guys all capable of putting 15+ points in any particular game.
Derrick Rose and rebounding(as in most cases) will be the key in this series if PHI wants to win games though. I expect Iguodala to shut down Deng as he usually does, so if Jrue Holiday can play decent, and if Rose is still not fully healthy, PHI may actually have a shot at winning a game or two in this series.
CHI in 5. CHI SHOULD receive a bigger test than they may imagine as PHI doesnt match up all that horribly with them, but I think the main internal test for CHI is to try and get the Rose/Hamilton backcourt in stride heading in to the next tough 2 upcoming rounds.
