Because Orlando is the one team we can't figure out. And we're 3 games out of first place in the East. And if we ever *are* going to be considered real contenders, we have to beat the teams that have owned us in the past. If we beat Orlando here, it will be a huge psychological boost to the Bulls team, possibly jump-starting a run to the top of the conference. In my opinion, this is the biggest game we've played all year.
What? Why the hell would a random game midway through the season for a team that many don't consider to be a real contender for the NBA title be considered "must-win?"
Not to mention the fact that I want revenge against this team that embarrasses us every time we play. Can it happen? I guess we'll find out.
