This may be an Eastern Conference Finals preview in Cleveland on April 5th. The Cavaliers are two and a half games above the Bulls in the Central division standings. With eight games remaining, it’ll be tough for the Bulls to makeup that ground, but anything is possible. For that to happen, winning this game would be the largest step in that process.
Most Expensive Home Game: 4/3/2015 | Chicago Bulls vs. Detroit Pistons | United Center Parking: $9.90 | Avg: $227.29 | Get-in: $54
There’s nothing better than when you go to a game and there’s a giveaway. On April 3rd, fans will receive a Benny the Bull toothbrush upon entrance of the United Center. You’ll also see a Bulls team with a great chance to pick up a win, as the Pistons are in last place of the Central division (28-45). The Bulls have the second best home record in the division at 24-14.
Least Expensive: 4/1/2015 | Milwaukee Bucks vs. Chicago Bulls | BMO Harris Bradley Center | Avg: $124.29 | Get-in: $43
The Bulls game with the least expensive average ticket price in the month of April is on the first day of the month against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks have been one of the league’s surprise teams, as not many predicted they would be playing in the playoffs. Jason Kidd has done a great job during his first season, but has been struggling in the record column since trading Brandon Knight.
Rose will be cleared for contact by next week. If he does return for any point in the regular season to get his legs under him, it would be in the final two games if at all. The Bulls probably would want to see him attack the end of the regular season in comparison to returning to the court in the playoffs.
