Chicago Bulls Schedule 2011-2012: Bulls Open Regular Season Dec. 25 Against The Los Angeles Lakers

The NBA unveiled the Chicago Bulls' full 2011-12 regular season schedule on Tuesday, and as had been reported yesterday, the Bulls will start the season with a four-game road trip. They'll open the season and the road trip against the Los Angeles Lakers in a Christmas day game that will be nationally televised by ABC. From there they will travel to Golden State, Sacramento and back to Los Angeles for a game against the Clippers before finally heading to Chicago for their home opener on Jan. 1.

The league announced that teams could play anywhere from one to three sets of back-to-back-to-back games this season, and the Bulls were fortunate in this regard: they only have to do it once. They'll host the Detroit Pistons on Jan. 9, visit the Minnesota Timberwolves on Jan. 10 and finish up at home on Jan. 11 against the Washington Wizards.

The Bulls get four shots at the Miami Heat, with the first scheduled for Jan. 29. The Bulls regular season concludes at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers on April 26.

A calendar view of the schedule is available here (pdf).
