Its that time of year again and basketball is heating up in Chicago as Bulls tickets for the 2011 NBA Playoffs will go on sale Friday, March 25. Tickets to see the No. 1 team in the East will be available at 11 a.m. for Rounds 1 and 2 at Bulls.com, 1-800-4NBA-TIX, the United Center, and Ticketmaster.
A total of eight possible home games will go on sale; four in the First Round and four in the Second Round. There will also be a limit of four tickets per game.
The Bulls also announced the launch of their See Red playoff campaign. Bulls fans are encouraged to show their support for Chicagos playoff run by wearing red to all home playoff games.
All game dates, times and opponents will be released by the NBA after the regular season ends. Refunds will be provided for any un-played home games and if the Bulls advance beyond Rounds 1 and 2, the date of sale for those games will be announced at that time.
In the latest edition of the SportsTalk Live Podcast, CSN's David Kaplan is joined by the Chicago Tribune's David Haugh and the Chicago Sun-Times' Adam Jahns to discuss the Bulls falling to a 2-2 series tie with the Celtics.

Then, the panel discusses whether Matt Davidson should be in the White Sox lineup more and who will still be playing on the South Side when the White Sox rebuild is done.
Finally, the panel discusses a couple of contract extensions for Pat Fitzgerald and Chris Collins at Northwestern.
