(670 The Score) The Bulls will open the upcoming regular season at the 76ers on Oct. 18 and then host the Pistons in their home opener on Oct. 20, the league revealed in releasing the full schedules Friday.

Notably absent from the Bulls' schedule is the long West Coast road trip in November, for many years referred to as the "circus trip." Chicago will have a five-game West Coast swing from Jan. 9-17 and another three-game swing out West from March 15-18.

In a couple notable games, Jimmy Butler and the Wolves visit the United Center on Dec. 26, while LeBron James and the Lakers visit on March 12.

The Bulls are currently scheduled to be on national television at least four times -- at the 76ers on Oct. 18 (TNT), at the Bucks on Nov. 16 (ESPN), vs. the Magic in Mexico City on Dec. 13 (ESPN) and vs. the 76ers on March 6 (ESPN).

The Bulls have 14 back-to-back sets, slightly above the league average of 13.3, which is down 31 percent since the 2014-'15 season. For the second straight season, no NBA team will have a stretch of four games in five nights.

Tickets for Bulls home games go on sale Sept. 14 at 11 a.m. and can be purchased at Bulls.com, NBATickets.com and 1-800-4NBA-TIX.
