Drama-filled Bulls set to face drama-less Spurs

CHICAGO -- As the Chicago Bulls embark on a multi-year rebuilding process, they do so understanding there will be plenty of difficult moments along the way.

Just one game into the new season, a young team filled with fresh, new faces has already experienced its share of drama. A fight in practice this week left forward Nikola Mirotic sidelined for 4-6 weeks and forward Bobby Portis suspended for eight games for punching Mirotic, who suffered facial fractures and a concussion in the altercation.

The Bulls open their home slate on Saturday against the San Antonio Spurs following a 117-100 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Thursday. After staying close for the first quarter, Chicago was outscored 30-4 to begin the second quarter. Just like that, the reality of the uphill climb the Bulls will face all season began to set in.
