    Default Bulls Blizzard Game Rescheduled for February 4th

    https://twitter.com/ScottAgness/stat...00949445832704

    The Pacers-Bulls game postponed on Dec. 26 has been rescheduled for Monday, Feb. 4, 7pm at @TheFieldhouse
    That means it'll start a 4 games in 5 nights stretch for us. Bulls, Hawks, @ Philly, day off, Toronto. Sweet.

    At least Stern will be gone by then.

    Edit: Dang, one year too soon. Let's hope they don't postpone this to 2014.

    Yeah, and it bails Chicago out from a back to back after getting a *** whipping from Houston the night before, and a puts us a a disadvantage schedule wise, F****** NBA.

    So, we'll be the only team this year with a back-to-back-to-back? Great..

    Do we know if Granger will be back by then?

    This would be the first definitive statement I've heard on this. When/where did Frank say this?

    It's a home game for the Pacers, so with us receiving a b2b2b it makes me think that it was an issue with the Fieldhouse being busy on the free dates both teams had open schedules. I mean, you have to work around the Pacer schedule, the Bulls' schedule, and the Fieldhouse's schedule. Initially I was all on the "screw the nba" attitude, but upon reflection it was probably a logistics thing.

    I really doubt the NBA went out of their way to schedule this game so it benefited the Bulls. If that was the case I think they would have done that originally.

    It was announced on something like 10/28 that he would need 3 months to recover, meaning the very end of February. However, people keep saying "Returning in February", which although true is a little misleading.


    EDIT: As Heisenberg pointed out, my math was wrong. 1/28/13 would be the exact "3 month date", not February. So, basically, discount everything I said.

    No, it'd mean the end of this month if we're following the timetable to a T.

    Ah, damn, I don't know how I thought 3 months after October = February.

    Anyway, per another question asked earlier: CBSSports Player Page - Danny Granger



    Granger inching toward return?: The Indianapolis Star reports Pacers coach Frank Vogel said injured forward Danny Granger (knee) is progressing, and the team remains hopeful Granger will return in January or early February.

    Which makes me think he will be back in mid to late February, which I'm quite okay with.

    No, but if they could do so with the first open date I think it would keep them from looking for a second one.

    It would favor the Bulls if they were the third of our b2b2b. As is they are up first, so that's no advantage.

    Eh, the mere fact that the game was postponed to begin with favored them. But it happens.

    Well, considering we're the main rival for them in the Central and it gives us the only b2b2b in the league (never mind a 5 games in 7 nights stretch), I think that helps the Bulls a bit.

    I guess I'm personally just frustrated that it is in the middle of our annual overseas trip, so it is yet ANOTHER game we'll end up missing. It still seems, though, that they could have found a better date for both teams. Mike Wells pointed out March 5 was a pretty good date.

    The fifth is a better date because it gives both teams back to backs. But it would be an odd quirk since we would play chicago two times in 3 days at home before facing the celtics the next day at home. The kicker is that both the March 3 Chicago/Indiana game and the March 6 Chicago/SA game are nationally televised.

    I'm comparing the Fieldhouse schedule are there are a number of dates that are much better. There was absolutely no reason to give either team a b2b2b. I'm a little more peeved now.
