The Bulls have two games in Los Angeles that have been rescheduled as a result of a rescheduled Lakers-Clippers game from Jan. 28, originally postponed in the wake of the death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gigi, and seven others on Jan. 26.
NBA announces that the Clippers-Lakers game from Jan. 28 has been rescheduled to April 9. As a byproduct of this rescheduling, two Bulls games have been changed. Bulls vs, Clippers in LA moves from April 8 to April 6. Bulls vs. Lakers on same trip moves from April 7 to April 8,— K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) February 21, 2020
Chicago has a Western Conference road trip from March 30 until April 8. With the updated dates, the Bulls will take on the Clippers on April 6, which is two days earlier than the original date and the Lakers on April 8, which is one day earlier than the originally scheduled date.
Due to the schedule shift, the Bulls will likely be in Los Angeles for four days, with one day off between the Clippers and Lakers games.
The Bulls lost 118-112 to the Lakers on Nov. 5 and knocked off the Clippers behind 31 points from Zach LaVine and 17 rebounds from Lauri Markkanen on Dec. 14, one of the Bulls three wins against a team with a record over .500. Those two April games against the Clippers and Lakers will give the Bulls the chance to even the regular season series with the Lakers, and pick up a surprising regular season series sweep of the Clippers.
