The Chicago Bulls still dont know their first-round opponent, but thats fine with Joakim Noah. "Whatever happens, happens," Noah said after the Bulls 108-95 victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday. "Our mentality is just getting ready for the next game, getting ready for Charlotte. Were going to focus on out next opponent and everything will take care of itself." Noah had 18 points and 10 rebounds and eight assists, Mike Dunleavy scored 22 points and the Bulls pulled away late. With one game left in the regular season, the Bulls are fourth in the Eastern Conference playoff race and looking at a first-round matchup with Brooklyn.

Fredette had nine points on 4-for-6 shooting in the fourth. "I didnt know until I got here," Fredette said of his increased playing time. "I was able to step in and help the team get a win." With a win in the season finale, the Bulls would get to 49 victories, a feat few thought possible following the injury to Derrick Rose and trade of Luol Deng earlier in the season.
