The NBA schedule is expected to be released sometime this week, but at least one date on the Chicago Bulls’ calendar has been accounted for.
According to The Oklahoman, the Bulls will travel to Oklahoma City to face the Thunder on Christmas Day.
For the sixth consecutive season, Oklahoma City will be featured in the league’s biggest holiday showcase when it hosts Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls on Christmas Day, The Oklahoman has learned. It will be the first time the Thunder has hosted a Christmas game since 2011, when it defeated the Magic inside Chesapeake Energy Arena. The Thunder is 4-1 in Christmas games, with wins against Denver in 2010, the Magic in 2011, New York in 2013 and San Antonio in 2014. OKC’s lone Christmas Day loss came at Miami in 2012. The league has not yet determined the time of the Thunder-Bulls game. But an afternoon tipoff is likely.
