The Chicago Bulls and Phoenix Suns square off on the night before Thanksgiving, which happens to be 90s night at the United Center with Coolio performing at halftime.
The Suns come to Chicago on a two-game losing streak and in last place in the Western Conference. The Bulls have one more win than the Suns, but sit in 12th in the conference. The Bulls came into the season hoping to contend for a playoff spot but injuries to core players have derailed those efforts and Zach LaVine has shouldered the load offensively.
This game is a must win for the Bulls, particularly if the team hopes to have a shot at a playoff push once players like Lauri Markkanen return from injury. It also presents the Bulls an opportunity to end a four-game skid.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch the showdown between the Bulls and the Suns.
