Final day!

OK, you know the situation. The Cavaliers and Bulls are tied with one game to go. Bulls hold the tiebreaker. Winner gets the #2 seed, loser gets the #5 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

The Cavs are at home to play the 28th-best team in the NBA, the Milwaukee Bucks. Milwaukee will be without their best player, Michael Redd. I'm not expecting a very close game.

Meanwhile, Chicago has to travel to New Jersey, where they have lost their last 10 games. The Nets have already locked up a playoff spot, but a win tonight would clinch the 6th-seed. Trust me, Vince Carter and Jason Kidd would MUCH rather play the 3rd-seeded Toronto Raptors than have to see the Cavs or the Bulls, so this one will be a hard-fought win for whoever comes out on top. The Nets can look at it this way - if they lose tonight against Chicago, they have to face the same Bulls team in the first round. That should be motivation....a quasi-one-game-playoff.

Cavs tip off at 7pm, Bulls at 730. Should be very interesting at the Q.
