Yes Pippen Peoples, the best time of the sports year is approaching. How do I know? The Chicago Bulls release the 2014-15 preseason schedule. No more speculation articles. Now Pippen Ain’t Easy can really write on the ins and outs of the Chicago Bulls.
The middle of August is near, kids are preparing to head back to school, and it also means basketball season is slowly approaching. The Chicago Bulls got the hype going for this upcoming season by announcing their preseason schedule for the 2014-15 season.
Chicago will play a total of eight preseason games, five of which will be home games. The Bulls’ preseason finale, which counts as a home game, will be against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Oct. 24, but it will be played at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Mo. That’s not the only neutral site the Bulls will play in this preseason, though.
The Bulls will take on the Cleveland Cavaliers on Oct. 20 at Ohio State University’s Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio. It is likely to be the most anticipated preseason game for fans with LeBron James back on his hometown team, a match-up of Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving and the addition of Kevin Love to the Cavaliers (assuming the trade isn’t vetoed after it becomes official, of course).
Another game to look forward to is Chicago’s preseason opener. The Bulls will be facing their playoff opponents from last season, the Washington Wizards. It also offers an expected return from Derrick Rose as well as a battle between him and John Wall.
Doug McDermott will have the chance to face fellow Creighton alumni Kyle Korver on Oct. 16, when the Bulls host the Atlanta Hawks at the United Center.
