(AP) - Having the best road record in the NBA helped the Chicago Bulls finish atop the Eastern Conference last season.
How they'll do away from home this season minus Derrick Rose remains to be seen.
The Bulls will double the number of road games they've played with a matchup against the improving Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night to open a five-game trip.
Chicago (4-3) did dominate its lone road game, but that 115-86 victory was against lowly Cleveland and came back on Nov. 2. The Bulls have since alternated wins and losses.
