Rockets vs. Bulls preview: Game time, TV schedule and more

USA TODAY Sports

The Bulls will host the Rockets in a Christmas Day evening matchup.

The Chicago Bulls and Houston Rockets will tip off as one of the later NBA games on Christmas Day. Both teams have done all right for themselves early in the season, though the Bulls have only managed an 8-6 record at home so far this year. They still have the advantage at the United Center over the Rockets, who have only gone 3-7 away from Houston.

Former Thunder star James Harden has stepped in and been the leader for the Rockets, putting up 25.6 points per game for his new team. Luol Deng has led the Derrick Rose-less Bulls on the scoring chart this year with 17.8 points per game, while Joakim Noah has contributed with 10.6 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game.

Chicago last met the Rockets in late November, and lost 93-89 in Houston. Tuesday's game will be the second and final meeting between the two teams in the 2012-13 regular season.

The game will be at United Center at 7 p.m. CT. The game will be televised on ESPN.
