The Bulls have been lethal at home all season. Also, it’s worth noting this is the first time since Jackson coached the Bulls that Chicago has even been considered a Finals contender. From ESPN: “Jackson said he is also paying close attention to the Eastern Conference standings, particularly to third-ranked Chicago. Jackson wants to make sure L.A. stays ahead of Chicago in the overall league standings should the Lakers play the Bulls in the Finals, assuring home-court advantage in that scenario. “You want those matchups, just in case something happens, to be in your advantage so that you have home court,” Jackson said.
