Derrick Rose: We'll be playing LeBron

I guess Derrick Rose feels a hot streak coming on.  If Rose has his way, his Bulls will face the Cavaliers in the First Round of the NBA Playoffs.  As it stands, the Bulls are 1.5 games behind Toronto for the 8th spot in the East.

"We're still going to make it," he told ESPNChicago.com after Tuesday morning's shootaround. "You can't think about stuff like [not making the playoffs].

"In my mind, we'll be making the eighth spot. We'll be playing LeBron [James] -- playing Cleveland. The closer we get, the [more] I'm going to think that. We can't walk around acting like we're not going to make it, because that's when things turn on you. Our biggest goal is to make the playoffs, and we're going to make it."

Of course, what should we expect Rose to say - a player should never expect to lose - but a matchup with the Bulls, with all the history between the two teams - would be fun to watch.
