The NBA schedule won't be out until tomorrow, but we now know where and when the Cleveland Cavaliers will open up the 2015-16 season.

According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, the Cavs will open up next season on October 27 on the road against the Chicago Bulls. The matchup will mark the first of four meetings between the Cavs and Bulls, who finished one and two in the Central Division last season.

During the regular season last year, the Cavs went 3-1 against the Bulls and finished three games ahead of the Bulls in the Central Division. In the Eastern Conference Semifinals, the Cavs beat the Bulls in six games without Kevin Love and with an injured Kyrie Irving. Heading into next year, the Cavs and Bulls figure to be the favorites in the Central Division once again.
