Bulls welcome home fans back to arena for Celtics' visit

The Chicago Bulls will play in front of fans on their home court for the first time in more than a year when they host the Boston Celtics on Friday night.

It marks the first time since March 10, 2020, that fans will be allowed inside the United Center. That was one day before the NBA paused its season amid the coronavirus outbreak that quickly swept the globe.

Chicago (27-39) is eager for a sense of normalcy after playing in an empty building for so long.
