Chicago’s game against the Brooklyn Nets on Nov. 3 is the first of four set Bulls In-Season Tournament games, which are all presented by motorola razr+, as part of the inaugural NBA In-Season Tournament.

The Bulls will have their second Group Play home game versus Orlando on Nov. 17 along with two Group Play road games at Toronto on Nov. 24 and at Boston on Nov. 28.

The Knockout Rounds will consist of single-elimination games in the Quarterfinals (played in NBA team markets on Monday, Dec. 4 and Tuesday, Dec. 5) and Semifinals and Championship (played in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena on Dec. 7 and Dec. 9, respectively).
