With the recent release of the Chicago Bulls’ 2018-2019 schedule, we take a look at the final month which could have serious implications for the team.

It is finally the time of year where Chicago Bulls fans can truly begin to get excited. The NBA released its 2018-2019 schedule recently, and if you’re like me, you begin to pick out the games you’d like to try and make it to ahead of time.

The Bulls likely won’t be a championship contender this season (and that’s putting it nicely) but there is still a possibility of making the postseason. Whether or not you’re a fan who wants to see the team finish with yet another lottery pick, the playoffs could wind up being a realistic scenario.

With new additions this offseason like Jabari Parker via free agency and Wendell Carter Jr. via the draft, the Bulls’ core is now a bit more impressive than it once was a year ago. Throw in Lauri  Markkanen, a returning Zach LaVine along with Kris Dunn, and your potential starting five is nothing to sneeze at.

I am fully confident that if the Bulls want to make the playoffs a reality, they have a very good chance. After all, the Eastern Conference has never been weaker now that LeBron James is a member of the Los Angeles Lakers.

For the Bulls to have a shot at the postseason, the last month or so of their schedule will be crucial. Let’s take a look at some of the games Chicago will be finishing out the season with, which could largely impact their playoff hopes.
