TNT has announced its broadcast schedule for this week’s Thursday NBA double header slate.

Up first on the night is an Eastern Conference showdown between the Bucks and Bulls.  Thursday’s game is a big one for both teams.  Chicago currently sits second in the Central Division, 4.5 games back from the division-leading Cleveland Cavaliers.

Milwaukee on the other hand sits in the basement in the Central Division at 11 – 12 so far on the season, 6.5 games back from the Cavs.  Each team is 5 – 5 in its last 10 games, but Chicago is more primed for a win, having won its last two games.  The Bucks meanwhile have lost three straight.  So both teams will be playing hard Thursday night, one to get out of a slump and the other to extend its streak.

Brian Anderson and Reggie Miller will have the call for Thursday’s Eastern Conference, Central Division matchup between the Bucks and Bulls.  Special guest Chris Webber will also be on hand for additional commentary live from Area 21.

Next up on the night is a cross-conference matchup between the Knicks and Warriors.  Tip-off is scheduled for 10:30 p.m. EST.  The Lakers have picked up the 2016 – ’17 season right where they left off last season.  The team is in the midst of a 7-game skid, 12 games back from the Western Conference, Pacific Division-leading Warriors.

New York meanwhile sits second in the Eastern Conference’s Atlantic Division, three games back from the division-leading Toronto Raptors, who surprised everybody last season.  New York has won two straight and is looking to keep the numbers coming in the “W” column.

Marv Albert will have the call for the game.  He will be joined by analyst Kevin McHale for additional commentary.  Reporter Lewis Johnson will also be on hand for all of the latest in-game news and interviews.
