Exciting Chicago Bulls games to look out for

The Bulls start their season with a clash against another exciting young team, as they host the Atlanta Hawks at the United Center, on December 23 at 7:00 pm EST. It will mark the beginning of a new era under recently appointed coach Billy Donovan. It will also be an exciting debut for rookie Patrick Williams.

January 15 marks an emotional return for coach Donovan, as he goes back to OKC, whom he coached for five years. His young Bulls will take on the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Chesapeake Energy Arena at 7:00 pm EST. It will be a battle of the young and promising shooting guards: Zach LaVine and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. 

February has two more important games. While the rivalry may have toned down in recent years, the Bulls taking on the New York Knicks is always a game with pride at stake. These two sides will meet twice in a row, on February 1 and February 3, with both home games for the Bulls. Both games are at 7:00 pm EST.

Finally, in the last game from this partial schedule, the Bulls play the New Orleans Pelicans. On March 3, they will travel south to play at the Pelicans’ Smoothie King Center at 7:00 pm EST. There will be young star attraction on the court, as LaVine, Coby White and Wendell Carter Jr take on Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, and Zion Williamson.
