This Saturday evening, from the United Center, heated Central Division foes Indiana and Chicago resume competitive acquaintances.
In an opening-night overtime thriller, the Indiana Pacers outlasted a determined Dallas squad to establish early success.
Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls also began the campaign in style, besting the Boston Celtics 105-99.
Last season, Chicago defeated Indiana 3-1 in a competitive regular-season series.
Though this season, each team sports a different look.
The Pacers will face Chicago on the second night of back-to-back contests.
In an offseason characterized by league-wide roster turnover, Indiana followed suit by adding Jeff Teague, Thaddeus Young and Al Jefferson.
Opposite Dallas, the Pacers’ creditable new trio added 38 points, 12 assists and 13 rebounds. Jeff Teague accounted for 20 points and eight assists in his memorable hometown debut.
However, the masterful performance of 20-year-old Myles Turner stole the show. Turner bullied the Mavs inside while amassing a gaudy stat-line of 30 points, 14 rebounds, four blocks, two steals and an assist.
With a reloaded roster comprised of solid contributors, Indiana could be the team to push Cleveland for Eastern Conference supremacy.
Though in the more immediate future, they’ll be a team with heavy legs facing a confident Bulls group.
Chicago scored the minor upset with a six-point victory against Boston.
Like fellow All-Star Jeff Teague, Dwyane Wade’s return home was a successful one.
Wade finished with 22 points, six rebounds and five assists, while unexpectedly making good on 4-of-6 three-point attempts.
Jimmy Butler matched Wade’s outside productivity and added 24 points to lead all Bulls in scoring.
Meanwhile solid front-line contributors Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic comined for 33 points and 17 rebounds.
As a collective, Chicago displayed a solid defensive performance to limit the up-tempo Celtics to 99 points. The Bulls also received a little assistance from a Boston team that shot 15-of-24 from the foul line.
