Preview: Magic at Bulls

The Chicago Bulls had their season-high seven-game winning streak come to an end on Sunday but are still competing for the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Conference. The Bulls will try to keep pace with the Toronto Raptors in that race when they host the Orlando Magic on Monday. Chicago and Toronto are tied for that third spot but the Raptors, who won the Atlantic Division crown, own the tiebreaker should the teams finish with the same record.

Preview: Pacers at Bulls

The Indiana Pacers can lock up the Central Division title with a road win Monday over the Chicago Bulls in a battle of teams bound for the Eastern Conference playoffs.

The Bulls are trying to hang onto a one-game lead over fifth-place Brooklyn and perhaps make up a half-game deficit to overtake Toronto for the No. 3 spot.
