Game 57 Recap: Bulls 83, Bucks 75

Last night, the Bulls held a divisional opponent to 75 points on 38 percent shooting.

Game 55 Recap: Raptors 118, Bulls 113

Well…that was a real bummer. Joakim Noah’s return was supposed to mean great things for the Bulls. Darkness was going to become sunlight and pure evil was supposed to transform into delicious candy. The blind would see and the lame would walk. Instead, the Bulls were beaten by a Raptors team that had lost 18 of its […]
