Chicago Bulls 2014 Schedule: Bulls To Host Lakers On Christmas

The 2014 NBA Regular Season schedule will be released on Wednesday evening, though, that has not stopped portions of the 2014 schedule being leaked to the media.

According to a report from ESPN, the Chicago Bulls will host the Los Angeles Lakers on Christmas day.


Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers will square off against former teammate Pau Gasol and the revamped Chicago Bulls on Christmas Day next season, according to multiple league sources.

The Lakers have become staples on the Christmas day schedule as the game against the Bulls will be their 16th consecutive Christmas day game.

Beyond the addition of new head coach Byron Scott, the Lakers also added former Bulls’ forward Carlos Boozer to their team this summer.

Like the Bulls with Derrick Rose, the Lakers are putting much stock into the return of their superstar, Kobe Bryant.

The Bulls played against the Brooklyn Nets last season on Christmas day. In that game, the Bulls defeated the Nets 95-78. Taj Gibson was the leading point man for the Bulls as the forward scored 20 points while playing off the bench.

The Bulls game against the Lakers on Christmas day will be one of many nationally televised games for the Bulls during the 2014-2015 regular season.
