Double feature. Bulls on Bulls on Bulls.
The league had previously leaked info that this year’s brief preseason schedule would only feature two games per team. And to make things as logistically unproblematic as possible, each team would play only one other team, once at home and once away. Indiana/Chicago made sense both for this reason and since it’s a rematch of the surprisingly exciting first round playoff series the two teams played last May.
According to Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star, game one will be on December 16 in Conseco Fieldhouse and the rematch will be December 20 in Chicago.
More than anything, it’s just nice to have something set in stone. Although seeing Derrick Rose twice before anyone else gets to even once is also nice. I hope Paul George feels the same.
