Expectations are soaring, and it's not hard to see why.
All the Bulls did was post the best record in the league at 62-20 and secure homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs. They meet the Indiana Pacers in a first-round series starting Saturday, and anything less than a deep run would be a big disappointment.
The Bulls are heavy favorites this time after back-to-back 41-win seasons and first-round playoff exits, and Rose is curious to see how it all plays out. He says the Bulls are taking a business-as-usual approach as they prepare for a Pacers team that went 37-45 and changed coaches during the season.
