The Chicago Bulls enter the weekend already assured a winning record on their nine-game road trip -- they're 5-2 through the first seven games -- and they'll have an opportunity to head back to the United Center on a happy note this weekend.
The Bulls begin the weekend with the struggling Charlotte Bobcats, who have lost 12 games in a row and have a 3-22 overall record. They'll finish in Boston on Sunday, which figures to be a bit tougher.
The full schedule is here, and this is the weekend ahead:
Nov. 10: at Charlotte Bobcats (6:00 p.m. CT, CSN)
Charlotte is led in scoring by Gerald Henderson and led in rebounding by Boris Diaw. Henderson is currently sidelined with an injury, however. The Bobcats have not won a game since a 112-100 triumph over Golden State on Jan. 14.
Nov. 12: at Boston Celtics (2:30 p.m. CT, ABC)
After a sluggish start, the Celtics are one of the hottest teams in the Eastern Conference. The usual suspects are leading the way: Paul Pierce is averaging 18.4 points per game, Rajon Rondo is handing out 9.8 assists per game and Kevin Garnett leads Boston in rebounding.
