The Bulls announced their complete television schedule for the 2017-18 season season on Thursday
CSN will air 46 Bulls games during the 2017-18 season. All CSN Bulls games can be live streamed on CSNChicago.com and the NBC Sports app. In addition, Bulls Pregame Live will air before every CSN game and Postgame Live will immediately follow each game.
CSN's regular-season Bulls coverage begins on Thursday, Oct. 19 when the Bulls host the Toronto Raptors at the United Center for the season opener.
Some highlights of CSN's Bulls coverage include: two games against LeBron James, Derrick Rose and the defending Eastern Conference champion Cleveland Cavaliers (Oct. 24, March 17), a showdown with the NBA champion Golden State Warriors (Nov. 24), home and road tilts with the Boston Celtics (Dec. 23, March 5) and a home matchup against Lonzo Ball and Los Angeles Lakers (Jan. 26).

It seems to be a matter of when, not if, Dwyane Wade will be bought out by the Chicago Bulls.
The 33-year-old isn't a part of the Bulls' rebuilding process, and he seems more likely to want to play for a contender in the tail end of his Hall of Fame career.
When that initial report came out that the Bulls were considering buying him out, Hassan Whiteside said the Heat would love to have him back.
Someone in LeBron James' camp reportedly said they expect Wade to become a member of the Cavaliers at some point in the season, which makes sense because of what James and Wade accomplished in Miami.
Well, add another potential destination to the list: Los Angeles.
Miami Herald's Barry Jackson is reporting that Los Angeles is appealing to Wade, for obvious reasons given Wade's affinity to continue pushing and improving his own brand.
Jackson does not specify whether it'd be the Lakers or Clippers that Wade is interested in joining. James has been linked to the Lakers for quite some time and is a free agent next offseason. The Clippers have moved on from Chris Paul but still figure to make noise in the Western Conference this season.
While he doesn't seem long for Chicago, Wade is going to have his fair share of suitors awaiting him once he clears waivers.
The latest Derrick Rose report says the 28-year-old guard will end up teaming up with LeBron James.
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Rose is leaning toward signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers over the Los Angeles Lakers. Discussions have been for a one-year, $2.1 million deal.
The free agent guard is meeting with Cavs officials in Ohio on Monday, according to Woj.
Rose's decision to sign with the Cavs makes more sense than the Lakers, especially after last week's report that Kyrie Irving requested a trade out of Cleveland. A minimum deal for Rose would also be a steal for the Cavs, who are seeking some solid production at a low cost.
In 64 games last season with the New York Knicks, Rose averaged 18 points, his best since the 2011-12 season with the Bulls.
