Oklahoma City Thunder vs Chicago Bulls: Watch NBA Live Stream For Free; Preview

By Staff Reporter, Posted: 10/23/12 05:49PM EDT

The Oklahoma City Thunder are facing the Chicago Bulls tonight in one of their final preseason games as both teams hope to return to the promise land. Of course, it'll be easier for the Thunder, who are the defending western conference champions and return with the team intact. The Bulls, eastern conference finalist two years ago, will star the season without its superstar Derrick Rose.

The game is on television, but if you can't get it, you can watch it for free with a live stream here.

Both the Bulls and Thunder have started their preseason campaigns with 3-2 records. Oklahoma City has yet to win a road game this preseason, so the advantage has to go to the Bulls.

Russell Westbrook has been filling up the score sheet as of late, averaging 14.8 points and 7.8 assists per game. The Bulls have been led by Richard Hamilton's 15.3 points per game throughout the preseason.

What was considered a potential finals matchup last season has become the story of two teams overshadowed by its conference rivals. The Bulls, of course, lost their spotlight to the Miami Heat and the Thunder have been overshadowed by the Laker's splashy offseason. 

But if Rose can return to 100% this season as he vowed, and the Thunder can avoid the distractions of James Harden's uncertain future, these two teams could meet in the finals in June.
