Preseason Open Thread #1: Indiana Pacers vs. Chicago Bulls

We have some real, live basketball tonight people. No, it doesn't count but after five and a half months this first preseason game is always an exciting highlight on the calendar. The Chicago Bulls are in town sans Ben Gordon and, like the Pacers, the Bulls are hoping to improve their defense  to compensate for the lost offense.

Tonight's game will not be televised locally but we'll have the action covered here as will Bruno on Pacers.com. I will be at the game with plans to keep this thread updated, so lend Mark Boyle and Slick Leonard an ear, even if you track down the Chicago television broadcast, and join me for some first impressions on all of the new faces in blue and gold.

As always, Blog A Bull has the Chicago fan's perspective covered. After the jump, a few additional game night links:
