Uggghh….look at Game 3, the Bulls get one of the dreaded “NBA TV” spots. No disrespect to NBA TV, they do great work over there, but long-time NBA playoff veteran watchers know that the league’s paying broadcast partners (ESPN, ABC, TNT) get first shots at what games they want to show on any given day and when any of them don’t have to show the Bucks, they’re not going to show the Bucks. It is what it is.
Still, this may be an ideal match-up for the Bulls not only geographically but competitively — the upstart and interchangeably athletic Milwaukee squad should make for some fun, if not overly-threatening, games. Hopefully, D-Rose won’t be too much of an issue.
