No. 1 Chicago vs. No. 4 Charlotte

WHAT: Best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal.

TV: Game 1, 5:30 tonight, Ch. 8.

WHERE: United Center, Chicago.

RECORDS: Hornets 51-31, Bulls 62-20.

COACHES: Hornets _ Dave Cowens. Bulls _ Phil Jackson.

KEY PLAYERS: Hornets _ Glen Rice, F, (22.3 ppg), Anthony Mason, F (12.8 ppg, 10.2 rpg, David Wesley, G (13 ppg, 6.5 apg). Bulls _ Michael Jordan, G (28.7 ppg, 5.8 rpg), Scottie Pippen, F (19.1 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 5.8 apg), Toni Kukoc, F (13.3 ppg, 4.4 rpg).

SERIES: Bulls 3-1.

THE LINE: The Bulls are rested, while the Hornets aren't after eliminating Atlanta in four games Friday. Hornets obviously have to contain Jordan, but bigger matchups will be Pippen against Rice and Mason against Dennis Rodman. The Hornets also have to overcome their lack of playoff experience against a team that excels in the post-season.

_ Darrell Fry's prediction: Bulls in four.
