The 2018–19 Chicago Bulls season was the 53rd season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA).

On December 3, 2018, the Bulls fired Fred Hoiberg and replaced him with his assistant Jim Boylen.[1]

This season also produced the Bulls' highest-scoring game in franchise history, recording 168 points on March 1, 2019 in a quadruple overtime 168–161 win over the Atlanta Hawks, it broke a team record previously set in the 1983–84 season. It was also the third-highest scoring game in NBA history, as well as the third game where both teams scoring broke through the 160 point barrier in the same game.
