On the air: TV: FS West; Radio: 710, 1330.
Where: Staples Center.
Records: Lakers 12-2, Bulls 7-4.
Record vs. Bulls (2009-10): 2-0.
Update: The Bulls are off to a decent start despite prized free-agent signee Carlos Boozer sitting out every game so far because of a broken right wrist. This game is part of the Bulls’ annual “circus trip” in which they are booted out of United Center for two weeks because of the circus. The Bulls historically have a rough time on this trip, but they are 2-1 so far, beating Houston and Dallas but losing to San Antonio.
