Bulls-Wizards Playoff Schedule: Dates, Tip Times & Television

I recently wrote pre game to the final seedings and it seems that the nets and wizards flip flopped. With that being mentioned this makes for a more interesting series. I like the Bulls to win it 4-2. Their toughness, defensive mindset and passion lead by Joakim Noah will be the reason for the Bulls winning this series. Guard play tandem by Kirk Hinrich and DJ Augustin give the Bulls a veteran smart guard in Hinrich and a quick explosive mini Russell Westbrook like player in Augustin. Jimmy Butler is a young relentless defender that can score as well and fits perfect in the Bulls system. Dunleavy, a seasoned shooter, can be money from short and long range but his physical game is suspect. Boozer and Noah pick up the slack down low and Noah will be deciding factor this series. He does not have to average a triple double but his point production, high rebounds and assist dish outs need to be relevant and consistent. Personally I am banking on playoff experience, sheer grit and defensive juggernaut of the Bulls to win this series. All their players are used to playing 30 plus minutes a game and have been here before. Wizards on the other side have a high scoring team and good depth on bench but the experience is not their for players like Wall and Beal. Gortat can bang inside but what it comes down to is consistently putting the ball in the bucket and the Wall Beal tandem is gonna struggle in my opinion.
