After starting of the season 6-4, the bulls travel to Portland to start their 6 game west coast trip, one that has given them trouble in the past. According to KC Johnson, Dwyane Wade, going over .500 is all they want to do. That is the mindset that the bulls enter with according to the guard. They will be facing a Portland team that has one of the best back courts in the NBA in CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard. In terms of injuries, Doug McDermott will not travel with the team, still having issues with the concussion he suffered. After the Trail Blazers, Chicago will travel to Utah to take on the Jazz.
I believe that this game is very important for the bulls, because it is important to start the trip off on the right foot, and start with a victory. This west coast trip can be a very good indicator of where the bulls are as a team and can help them take it to the next level.
