Bulls ready to start playoff push against Wizards

CHICAGO (AP) Lose a franchise player, trade away another star. Snag home-court advantage for at least one round in the playoffs?

It's not the way the Chicago Bulls mapped it out at the start of the season. But here they are, holding the fourth seed and hosting John Wall and the Washington Wizards in Game 1 of their first-round series Sunday after going 48-34.

They lead the Eastern Conference with 36 wins since Jan. 1 even though they don't have a player averaging 15 points, and they came together right when they looked as though they might be ripe for a meltdown.
