The Chicago Bulls will be the Bucks’ first round opponent if they beat the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday, the last day of the NBA regular season. Should the Hawks prevail, the Bucks will play the Toronto Raptors, assuming the Raptors beat the Charlotte Hornets.

The Raptors won the re-building Atlantic Division this season, but are only 26-27 since their torrid 22-6 start. The Bulls injury-plagued fortunes took a turn for the better when former MVP Derrick Rose returned to the lineup last week, making them a potentially dangerous team. A Bucks-Bulls series would certainly bring a lot of Bulls fans to the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

What do you think? Who would you like the Bucks to play in the first round?
