NBA schedule 2012: Bulls host Celtics before heading westward

Rob Grabowski-US PRESSWIRE

Monday night's game against the Boston Celtics will be the Chicago Bulls' last at the United Center for two weeks.

The Chicago Bulls host the Boston Celtics on Monday night before heading west to begin a five-game road trip that will keep the team away from the United Center for two weeks. It's the first of four match-ups between the Bulls and Celtics this season.

After Monday night's game, the Bulls head to the desert Wednesday night to take on the Phoenix Suns. The Suns are 3-4 entering a Monday night game against the Denver Nuggets, but those wins come against the Bobcats, Pistons and Cavaliers -- three teams with a combined record of 4-15 so far.

The Bulls then finish with back-to-back games on Saturday and Sunday against the Los Angeles Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers, respectively. The Blazers began the season strong, but recent losses have exposed a team that's struggling to stop opponents from scoring.

Los Angeles should provide a much stronger challenge, particularly with Chris Paul giving the Clippers a massive advantage at the point guard position.
