Chicago Bulls won’t play on Christmas Day for the second straight year

The Chicago Bulls are heading into year two of the rebuild. Bulls found out Wednesday who they will play their first regular season game against.

We are getting closer and closer to the 2018-2019 NBA season. The Chicago Bulls front office has been busy this offseason, and it’s almost that time to see what kind of talent this young Bulls team has.

We have known for a while now who the Chicago Bulls will play in the preseason. They will play five preseason games. We also recently found out that the Bulls will play a regular season game in Mexico City against the Orlando Magic. Now we know who the Bulls will play their first regular season game against.

The NBA announced on Wednesday it’s opening week national TV schedule, and the Christmas Day games. The NBA also announced the teams that will play on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The Chicago Bulls will open their regular season on October 18th against the Philadelphia 76ers. This game will be on TNT.

For the second straight season the Bulls won’t play on Christmas Day. Before last season, the Bulls played on Christmas day seven straight seasons. The Bulls will be part of the MLK day games as they will face the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The NBA will release the full 2018-2019 schedule this Friday. According to Westgate Las Vegas Superbook, the Chicago Bulls over/under for wins for the 2018-19 NBA season is 27.5. I don’t really understand how it can be 27.5 because the Bulls have more talent on the current roster then last years team. Don’t be surprised to see this Bulls team finish the season fighting for the secenth, eight seed in the Eastern Conference.
