NBA schedule 2012: Bulls have back-to-back games this week

The Chicago Bulls have two sets of back-to-back games this week, with the first coming Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Bulls host the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET. The Bulls are 8-7, while Indiana is 8-9.

Indiana has been led this season by David West. West is averaging 18 points and eight rebounds per game. Both marks lead the team.

The Pacers have also seen offense from George Hill and Paul George. Hill is averaging nearly 15 points per game while George is averaging 14 per game.

The Cavs will likely be without second-year guard Kyrie Irving in Wednesday's matchup. Irving has been out since the middle of November with a fractured finger. He is leading the team with 23 points per game. The Cavs are also getting a great season from Anderson Varejao, who is averaging 15 points and 15 rebounds per game.
