Wow, this can be very dangerous for us. Only if we loose in tonights game. The sixers will be palying in cleveland without cleveland starters. Or maybe just lebron.

What happendes if we end up being tied with the sixers, who ends up in the 6 seed???

The Sixers. It's surprising to me to hear that about the Cavs. Where did you read it or hear it? They can go for a record? So the Bulls better put away the Raptors, It's in their hands.

Yea i agree, I would think they would just try for 1 more win. Get a huge lead or something and then maybe sit them out for the rest of the game. The players will be able to see how each game is going in the staduim, so at the Sixers/Cavs game they will be able to see our score and hopefully were winning and the Sixers players see that and kind of give up.

Or hopefully this is just a phycological ploy and Lebron and the bronettes play and kick their arsses. I just don't see them watching Philly take away thier 40-1 record. But who knows. But yah the Bulls need to get out the gates fast and build a large lead early. Remember even if the Cavs tank one, If the Bulls Win it means nothing. They would still have a half game lead on Philly. I read Barngani is questionable to play.

Somebody posted it in the General forum. There's no link but there is an article:

CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cavaliers have chosen reward over risk.

All-Stars LeBron James and Mo Williams and veterans Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Joe Smith will not play Wednesday night against Philadelphia to rest for the playoffs, despite Cleveland attempting to match the 1985-86 Boston Celtics' NBA record of 40 home wins in one season.

Cavs coach Mike Brown said the decision was easy because his team has much bigger goals and he doesn't want to jeopardize its chances of winning an NBA title by getting a player hurt in a meaningless game.

With a win, the Cavaliers will match the '85-86 Celtics' home record of 40-1.

"We are where we are no matter what," Brown said following the Cavs' morning shootaround. "Obviously, we can tie the record. That's the only thing we gain out of playing our guys. Other than that, we could have an injury, and for me that would be the most devastating thing you could possibly think of this late in the game."

The Cavaliers have already secured home-court advantage throughout the postseason, making the home finale nothing more than a chance to get the reserves some extra court time.

"Tying the home record would be nice, just like all the other records we have," Brown said. "But going after it is definitely not a goal of ours. Having said that, we still expect to try to get a win with whoever is in uniform."

Cavaliers forward Ben Wallace, who recently returned from a broken right leg, will also sit out as he recovers from a strained knee tendon. Brown said Wallace is "progressing" but gave no further timetable on when his best interior defender might be game ready.

The Cavs, who will meet the Detroit Pistons in the first round, have set numerous franchise records in their greatest regular season to date. But Brown knows none of them will mean much without capping it with an NBA championship.

"There's only one reward that might have me dancing in the streets," he said.

Philadelphia has a lot riding on the regular-season finale. A win over Cleveland and a loss by Chicago against Toronto would give the Sixers the No. 6 seed in the playoffs.

So the good thing is. That the Bulls don't go into thier game with a meaningless game attitude. They know that it's not given the Sixers will lose. So hopefully they play the same as in Detroit with a playoff mind set and this is just water under the bridge. The telling thing in that article is that Brown said that all they can do is tie the record. And maybe if the Cavs had a chance to beat the record things would be different. So if your going to the game tonight wear your Red tees and show energy for the team. This game is important and they need to play with that mind set.

Thou I believe the article

I wish we would tank but I doubt it. And I'm pretty sure Bargs will be playing.

The raptors are playing good ball right now. The bulls when on a run in the second, but seem not find the rim in the third.
