Chicago Bulls fever is about to go into overdrive now that fans know who will be visiting the United Center, and when.
The team released the schedule for the upcoming season Wednesday, tipping off Oct. 29 with a nationally-televised ESPN game against the New York Knicks.
But all eyes will be on the United Center on Oct. 31 when LeBron James, Kevin Love and the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers visit Chicago for the home opener.
The Bulls will also play on Christmas Day when they host the Los Angeles Lakers at 7 p.m. in one of five games across the league. That game will be televised live on TNT.
The Bulls are scheduled to play in 30 nationally-televised games throughout the season.
Hopes are high for the Bulls this year with the return of Derrick Rose and new players such as free agent Pau Gasol, the arrival of Nikola Mirotic and highly-touted draft pickup Doug McDermott.
The full schedule can be viewed at Bulls.com.
