Rick Friedman Reader Comment of the Day:"All I know is this: the team is ahead of Dallas, Orlando, Miami and Boston. Right now, Chicago is holding the 2nd best record which is holding us back from HCA in The Finals. The next few weeks of the regular season are going to be fantastic. All of these games will count and then it's on to the playoffs!" -- frmkt
