The San Antonio Spurs will travel to the Windy City to face the Chicago Bulls. A look at how to watch Saturday night’s game online.
Saturday night marks the second game of the NBA season for the San Antonio Spurs. They will face the Chicago Bulls, perceived as not just one of the Eastern Conference’s worst teams, but in the entire league. The United Center in Chicago, IL will host it.
The Spurs won their season opener on Wednesday night, 107-99, over the Minnesota Timberwolves. This was behind 25 points and 10 rebounds from LaMarcus Aldridge, who continued his impressive play from the preseason.
Aldridge is in the leading role for the foreseeable future, as Spurs star Kawhi Leonard remains out with a quad injury. The timetable for his return is unknown, so he will not play in Saturday’s game against the Bulls. That leaves Aldridge to be the centerpiece of the offense, something he hasn’t been since playing for the Portland Trail Blazers.
Dejounte Murray was a key piece of the win, too. He scored 16 points and factored in on defense, receiving over 20 minutes as the Opening Night starter at point guard.
The Bulls lost their first game, 117-100, to the Toronto Raptors. They were led by rookie Lauri Markkanen’s 17 points and 8 rebounds, including 2 3-pointers. He was one of their few bright spots, as this team will face hardships in almost every game and throughout the 2017-18 season.
