WASHINGTON (CBS) — President Barack Obama is holding a party at the White House Wednesday night to watch the Bulls take on the Charlotte Bobcats, according to a published report.

The party will come after a day of serious business, according to UPI.

The guests will include a bipartisan group of members of Congress from Chicago and Charlotte, N.C., according to UPI. The report did not specify who would be there.

The Bulls will take on the Bobcats at 6 p.m. Chicago time at the Time Warner Cable Arena in charlotte. The Bulls (44-18) are hoping for an eleventh win in 13 games overall, and to avoid a third loss in four games against the Bobcats (26-37) this season, CBS Sports reported.

Leading Bobcats scorer Stephen Jackson and key reserve Tyrus Thomas are expected to play in the game despite recent injuries.
