But how Mike Brown decides to use his starters and when LeBron James decides to sit out games could have a big impact on who makes or misses this seasonís playoffs. And more importantly, in a race this close, the Cavaliers can have a huge impact on who they will face in the first round.
By playing his starters against Toronto, he hands Chicago the chance to be tied or ahead of the Raptors in the standings when the Cavs arrive in the windy city. Brown would then have the chance to temporarily gift the Bulls eighth place.
But if Mike Brown rests his starters on Tuesday and then plays them on Thursday, he could all but end Chicagoís post-season hopes.
