If Bulls get No. 1 seed in the East, are they still the underdogs to reach the finals?

With a win tonigh in Utha the Bulls have a chance to tie the celtics in the standings as the No. 1 team in the East.

All season we have been labeled the surprise team, and have been ranked by experts as no better than No. 3 or 4 in the east. I think this has allowed the bulls to play loose and with less pressure.

They have been underdogs entering most games against the Heat, Celtics and Magic. But I think all that is gone, once you get the No. 1 seed. The underdog label is gone, and the pressure is on.

Still I would love for the Bulls to get it. It's not a championship, but a big statement for this young team and it's first year coach.
