The Chicago Bulls could wrap up their playoff series against the Indiana Pacers Saturday.

The Bulls are up 3-0 in the series over the Pacers, but those three wins haven't come easily.

The Pacers have been playing hard, physical defense.

"They're aggressive with their play against Derrick Rose and the rest of the team," said Cheryl Raye-Stout, who's been following the Bulls for WBEZ. "The fact that Derrick Rose can withstand that is why the Bulls are winning this series so far."

Rose shot 6-for-24 in Thursday night's win against the Pacers, but Luol Deng helped pick up the pace by scoring 21 points. If the Bulls win, they'll face either Orlando or Atlanta in the second round. Tipoff is at 1:30.
