PLAYER NOTES

--G Keith Bogans knocked down a three-pointer just 11 seconds into Game 5 and it proved to be a good sign. The veteran shooting guard went 5-for-7 from three-point land to finish with a playoff career-high 15 points. The Bulls are now 28-2 this season when Bogans scores at least six points.

--F Kyle Korver couldn't keep up his hot shooting, even while the Bulls set a franchise playoff record for three-pointers in a game. Korver was 8-for-10 from three-point range in the first four games against Indiana, then went 2-for-7 in Game 5. He did find other ways to score and finished with 13 points.

--F Taj Gibson snapped out of a shooting slump in Game 5 against Indiana. He was just 5-for-13 from the field in the series for 2.5 points. With Carlos Boozer in early foul trouble on Tuesday, Gibson's playing time jumped to 30 minutes, which helped him contribute 10 points and seven rebounds.

MEDICAL WATCH

--G Derrick Rose (sprained left ankle) was hurt in Game 4, but played in Game 5.

--F Carlos Boozer (turf toe on right big toe) was hurt during Tuesday's series-clinching win over the Indiana Pacers. He is expected to play to Game 1 against Atlanta.
