(CBS) The Bulls’ full schedule is out and it’s, well, chunky.
With the NBA cramming 66 games into a shortened season, every team has to play at least one set of back-to-back-to-back games and at least for the Bulls, their schedule also includes a number of long road trips and homestands.
The longest road trip spans from Jan. 29 to Feb. 12. and includes nine games in just 15 days. Before that road trip, the Bulls have four straight games at home and after the road trip, they have six straight games at home. There is also a six game homestand in the month of March.
Another interesting and beneficial scheduling quirk is that after their four-game west coast swing to start the season, the Bulls won’t travel out of the Central or Eastern timezones the rest of the season.
Notable games this season include: Dec. 25 at Lakers, Jan. 29 at Miami, Feb. 16 vs Boston, Mar. 12 vs New York, Mar. 14 vs Miami, Apr. 5 vs Boston, Apr. 8 at New York, Apr. 10 vs New York, Apr. 12 vs Miami and Apr. 19 at Miami.
