Re: Bulls 2012-13 schedule announced
he league released its 2012-13 schedule on Thursday, and it plays to the Bulls’ favor. The first two months of the season are relatively light, while the toughest stretch occurs over the last two months.
Fifteen of the Bulls’ 30 games in 2012 come against playoff teams from last season. Only five of those are against teams that finished in the top four of their conference.
The Bulls first meeting against the champion Miami Heat comes on Jan. 4, the only meeting between the two teams prior to the All-Star break. The Heat travels to the United Center on Feb. 21 and March 27.
The “Circus Trip,” which runs from Nov. 14-24, will have the Bulls play four Western Conference teams before a game in Milwaukee ends the trip. Only one of those games, a Feb. 17 meeting against the Los Angeles Clippers, comes against a playoff team from last season.
