Day games could be a problem for the Bulls

While the Bulls are projected to come out ahead of the Sixers in the first round of the playoffs, their stats show they have another challenge to face during the postseason. Day games have proven to take a giant hit in Chicago's playing ability.

That brings us to Saturday's Game 1, taking place at noon at the United Center. Reigning MVP Derrick Rose continues to try to rediscover his rhythm, and without his top-notch athleticism, could the Bulls face some difficulties early on?

Here's a look at Chicago's day-time record during the regular season:
