Start times for the Chicago Bulls’ final two games became public this morning. The Bulls, who still have a shot to reach the NBA play-in round, will finish off the regular season against the Brooklyn Nets followed by the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Bulls will play the Brooklyn Nets in Brooklyn on Saturday, May 15th at 12 PM CT. Brooklyn currently holds second place in the Eastern Conference playoff picture. The Nets still have a shot to earn the top seed, which means Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving (if available) will likely start vs. the Bulls. Brooklyn currently sits just one game back of the first-place Philadelphia 76ers.
The Chicago Bulls’ final game of the 2020-21 NBA season will take place at the United Center against the number three seed Milwaukee Bucks. That contest will tip off at 8 PM CT on Sunday, May 16th. The Bulls have a tall task ahead to earn their way into the play-in round as their final pair of games come against two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference.
Despite an underwhelming season on the whole, the Bulls still find themselves scratching and clawing for a play-in spot. It may be a longshot, but they still have an opportunity.
