CSN's Chuck Garfien and Vincent Goodwill preview the Bulls' spread out, shortened Circus Trip in this week's Bulls Road Ahead, presented by Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana Honda dealers.
The Bulls hit the road for four games following Monday's 96-95 victory over the Indiana Pacers. It begins Wednesday night against Phoenix and will continue with Golden State, Portland and Indiana before returning home on Nov. 30 for a date with the Spurs.
The Bulls' first extended road trip of the year will be an important one. In addition to facing three likely playoff teams - including the 11-0 defending champions - the Bulls are just 2-2 away from the United Center.

Working in their favor on this year's Circus Trip, however, is that they'll only play four games, different from in years' past when the trip included six (2013) or seven (2014) games.
"The fact that they're not playing any back-to-backs, the schedule's being stretched out, they're going to come back right before Thanksgiving and then go back out to Indiana. Playing Golden State in Golden State," Insider Vincent Goodwill said, "the Bulls are the last team to beat Golden State on that home floor without the playoffs being counted. So it'll be interesting to see how they go into that environment again and see if they can muster up some type of effort."
