“If this Chicago team plays like this -- they went 4-0 against the Cavs in the regular season -- I don’t see any reason why they can’t win the Eastern Conference.”
After becoming just the second no. 8 seed in NBA history to win the first two game of a series against a top seed (1993 Lakers/Suns), Clay Travis isn’t buying the Cinderella story angle behind these Bulls, saying they’re simply a better team than Boston.
“This is more about the Bulls elevating their game than it is the Celtics stinking,” Travis said. “I don’t think this is a freak event, I think the Chicago Bulls are just better than the Boston Celtics.”
Despite finishing the season with 41 losses and using a tiebreaker to even get the #8 seed, Travis believes the scorching hot Bulls are going to finish off the punchless C’s in four games and are playing at a level equivalent to championship basketball.
“The Bulls are going to sweep the Celtics,” he said. “The Bulls look like a team that the Cleveland Cavaliers are fortunate they’re not playing right now.”
