November/December Road Trip, November 28 – December 4

Much like their homestand during the week of Halloween, the Bulls find themselves facing off against the Rockets and division opponents.

For the second time in less than two weeks, the Bulls make the short trip to Milwaukee to face off against the Bucks in the brand new Fiserv Forum on November 28. Unfortunately for Bucks fans, there’s a good chance there’s going to be a lot of red in the arena, especially with the opening of a brand new, state of the art facility for the city just a couple of hours north of Chicago.

Next, the Bulls head to the other side of Lake Michigan to face off against another division rival on November 30, the Detroit Pistons. In many ways, one of the biggest rivals for the Bulls, each team has won a total of 129 games against each other heading into this season.

The Bulls will depart the Midwest and begin December with their only non-division matchup of the road trip. This time, they’ll head to Houston for a tough contest against the Houston Rockets, who were a win away from the NBA Finals in 2018.

Finally, the Bulls end the trip by heading back to the Midwest for another division rival tilt, once again against the Indiana Pacers on December 4.

The long getaway could certainly be one of the most difficult stretches of the regular season, as they not only play three of four against division rivals on the road, but also have to face last year’s Western Conference runner-up
