Everything you need to know for the San Antonio Spurs vs. Chicago Bulls on Saturday night.

After Wednesday night’s season-opening win, the San Antonio Spurs will return to the court for the second game of the year. This will be against the Chicago Bulls, projected by many to be one of the NBA’s worst teams in 2017-18.

To lead the Spurs over the Minnesota Timberwolves, LaMarcus Aldridge delivered 25 points and 10 rebounds, continuing his impressive and inspired play from the preseason. Danny Green’s 17 points followed him, including two late-game 3-pointers to seal the 107-99 victory.

The Bulls dropped their first regular season game to the Toronto Raptors, 117-100. Despite the loss, rookie Lauri Markkanen delivered 17 points and two 3-pointers in his official debut. He’s a seven-foot power forward from Arizona that developed a reputation for his outside shooting ability and athleticism. Robin Lopez and Justin Holiday had 18 and 15 points, respectively.

Chicago offers inexperience from top to bottom. They’re full of young players like Markkanen, Jerian Grant, Paul Zipser, Denzel Valentine, Cristiano Feliciano, the punch-wielding Bobby Portis, Kay Felder and Ryan Arcidiacono, the same guy who was a four-year star at Villanova. That’s leaving out Kris Dunn and Zach LaVine, too, who didn’t play in the opener due to injury.

Then, factor in all the veterans the Spurs own. This could either be closer than expected or a one-sided destruction.
