The Oklahoma City Thunder will play a second NBA preseason game at Intrust Bank Arena, meeting the Chicago Bulls in an Oct. 23 game.

Oklahoma City beat Dallas 88-76 in the Thunder’s final preseason game last October before a sellout crowd of 15,004.

“The entire Thunder organization, from players to coaches to staff, thoroughly enjoyed our previous experiences in… Wichita, so we are thrilled to return,” Brian Byrnes, senior vice president of sales and marketing for the Thunder, said in a statement announcing the games in Wichita and another in Tulsa.

“The energy in the buildings and the overwhelming support of the fans was tremendous. We are excited to have another opportunity to enhance our connection to Thunder fans in the region."

Tickets will go on sale in April at intrustbankarena.com.
