The Chicago Bulls will visit the Boston Celtics for a Sunday matinee on ABC.
The Boston Celtics will play host to the road-tripping Chicago Bulls on Sunday in a matinee on ABC. The match-up has lost a bit of its luster since an epic seven-game series between the teams three years ago, when Derrick Rose kept his underdog squad fighting hard to knock off a titan. The roles are reversed, as the Celtics are floating near the bottom of playoff seeds and the Bulls are on top.
ABC will tip off pre-game coverage 3 p.m. ET, and the game is slated to start at 3:30 p.m. ET. It is the only NBA game slated for ABC on Sunday, though ESPN will pick up coverage with an evening double-header that begins with the Miami Heat vs. the Atlanta Hawks and ends with the Utah Jazz meeting the Memphis Grizzlies.
