The NBA announced a few changes to the Chicago Bulls vs. Golden State Warriors game scheduled for Jan. 14. The contest will now tip off at 6:30 PM CST and air on ESPN.
The game's original start time was 7 PM CST.
Recently, Bulls schedule changes have consisted of makeup dates due to COVID-related postponements. But this time, the NBA made the switch to showcase two of its best teams on national television.
The Bulls enter Friday (Jan. 7) leading the Eastern Conference by 1.5 games with a record of 25-10. The Warriors currently occupy second place in the Western Conference with a 29-9 record, trailing the Suns by just one game.
Chicago has four games on the slate before hosting Golden State. The Warriors will play three times, but the Jan. 14 game against the Bulls will mark the second half of a back-to-back for Steve Kerr's squad.
