The Eastern Conference finals are set as the Chicago Bulls will battle the Miami Heat. The Bulls advanced to their first conference finals since 1998 after slamming the Atlanta Hawks 93-73 last night to win the best-of-seven series 4-2. Carlos Boozer had his best game of the postseason, finishing with a double-double (23 Pts, 10 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl). Here is more from the AP and

The 4-2 series victory sent the Bulls to their first conference final since 1998, when Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were on their way to a second three-peat. The Bulls fell on hard times after that glorious era, including three straight 60-loss seasons, but they have put together a deep, talented team that won more games than anyone during the regular season.

Bulls Advance To Conference Finals

The Bulls have been favored in their first two playoff series against the Pacers and Hawks. Despite having the best overall record in the NBA, Chicago will be viewed as the underdog in Eastern Conference Finals. LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and the rest of the Miami Heat better not underestimate league MVP Derrick Rose. Talented point guards have given the Heat fits all season. Game 1 between the Bulls and Heat is set for Sunday night in the Windy City.
