NBA schedule 2012: Bulls at home for big match-up with Los Angeles Clippers

USA TODAY Sports

The Bulls face the Clippers at home, then head to the City of Brotherly Love for an important Eastern Conference game with the Philadelhpia 76ers.

The Chicago Bulls will play in two of the NBA's biggest games in the early part of the week, first with a home contest against one of the Western Conference's best teams in the Los Angeles Clippers. Following their nationally televised tilt on Tuesday, the Bulls will head east on Wednesday to take on the Philadelphia 76ers.

Wins in both those games could help put a little separation between Chicago and the log jam of teams in the top eight of the Eastern Conference.

Before the Bulls face the Clippers Tuesday night, the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets will renew their growing rivalry at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The Nets previously won an overtime battle over the Knicks, 96-89.

Here's a look at the schedule for the early part of this week in the NBA. For the full schedule, head over to SI.com.

Tuesday, Dec. 11: New York Knicks at Brooklyn Nets, 6:00 p.m., ESPN

Tuesday, Dec. 11: Los Angeles Clippers at Chicago Bulls, 8:30 p.m., ESPN or CSN Chicago
