Upcoming schedule looks good for Bulls

I'm trying to not count chickens or any of those other cliches, but the schedule over the next 3 weeks really seems to favor Chicago to make a move in the Central, both in terms of number of games and in strength of opponents, if they can get over this road game thing:

Bulls                Cavaliers        Pistons
@Milwaukie       Toronto          @Memphis
@Miami             Houston         Golden State
@Orlando         @Detroit         Cleveland
@Boston           @Milwaukie     @Denver
Boston              Indiana          @LAClippers
@Philadelphia    Sacramento    @Seattle
@Memphis        @Memphis       @Portland
LAClippers        Utah               @Phoenix
Denver            @Charlotte       Dallas
                       Dallas             Philadelphia
                       New York        @Houston
                                            @San Antonio

Combined winning percentages of opponents over the span:

Chicago Opponents - .384 (none better than .500)
Cleveland Opponents - .515 (5 better than .500)
Detroit Opponents - .552 (5 better than .500)

Of course, some of those bottom dwellers are playing better now due to getting star players back from injury (e.g., Milwaukie, Boston, Memphis).  Still, all things considered, I'm really hoping and expecting the Bulls to make up some ground in the standings and to improve that pathetic road record of theirs.  Looking at this schedule, I have to confess that I'll be disappointed if they don't go at least 6 and 3 to get to 10 games over .500.

So here's to hoping this was the start of a great March, and that the Bulls make their annual closing kick heading into the playoffs.  Any predictions?
