It's what the Ark of the Covenant was to Indiana Jones. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre for NBA teams rests at the end of the postseason, but only few reach the final stretch.

That time is nearly here and with just about every seat to the final dance filled, it's time to think about that wonderful time of the year:

Playoff basketball.

This year started out with the season apparently over and the Heat crowned kings before any games had been played. Since then they have struggled and it is instead the Chicago Bulls who are in the top slot in the Eastern Conference.

Led by the brutal attack schemes of Coach of the Year lock Tom Thibodeau, which are executed by field general Derrick Rose, the Bulls have the best record in the Eastern Conference for the first time since 1998. Thanks to this, the Bulls were nearly unstoppable at home inside the United Center losing just five times all year.

This is good news for the Bulls, as the road to the Finals goes through Chicago.

So just how far will the Bulls go? That all depends who they play and how well they match up against them.
