The Chicago Bulls opened up their preseason schedule on Tuesday with a dominant 131-95 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, led by Zach LaVine’s 25 points. On Friday, the Bulls will look to continue that offensive momentum flowing as against Lonzo Ball’s former team, the New Orleans Pelicans.

For the Bulls, Derrick Jones Jr. is back from injury and available to make his debut. With how well and active Javonte Green was on Tuesday as a starter, we’ll see if Billy Donovan opts to keep Green in the starting lineup or give Jones Jr. a crack at it with Patrick Williams still on the shelf.

The Pelicans are coming off a 104-86 win against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday. With Zion Williamson out and Brandon Ingram and Devonte’ Graham listed as questionable, it’ll be interesting to see what lineup head coach Willie Green throws out there if Ingram and Graham are unable to suit up.

Here’s when and where you should tune in to see the matchup:

  • Date: Friday Oct. 8

  • Time: 8 p.m. EDT

  • Location: United Center, Chicago, Illlinois

  • Channel: NBC Sports Chicago, listen on 670 The Score, TUDN 1200 AM
