Game Recap: Bulls 108, Nets 87

There’s not much to say about this one. The game itself anyway. The Bulls continue to beat the stuffing out of bad teams. The Nets (8-18 overall and 3-8 at home) were bad to begin with. To make matters worse, they were without Brook Lopez, Damion James, Mehmet Okur, MarShon Brooks and DeShawn Stevenson due […]

Health Status: Deng and Rose

After a two-week layoff due to a torn ligament in his left wrist, Luol Deng returned to the Bulls lineup Saturday night in Milwaukee. Cue the sighs of relief. Deng logged a game-high 41 minutes — of course — and finished with 21 points and 9 rebounds in a 113-90 win over the Bucks. It’s a […]

Game Recap: Bulls 105, Knicks 102

Let me state up front that I wasn’t thrilled with the Bulls’ defensive effort last night. The Knicks scored 102 points and posted an Offensive Efficiency of 108.5, well above their season averages of 95.0 and 97.1, respectively. They also finished with an Offensive Rebounding Rate of 31.7, up from their season average of 24.5. What’s […]

Game Recap: Sixers 98, Bulls 82

Outhustled. Outworked. Outplayed. That’s what happened to the Bulls last night in Philadelphia. The 76ers showed no fear and little respect for a Chicago team that’s supposed to be one of the league’s true title contenders. They played smothering defense, holding the Bulls to 43 percent shooting and forcing 17 turnovers. What’s more, Philly earned […]

Joakim Noah’s slow start may be over

Joakim Noah hasn’t looked much like Joakim Noah this season. Last season, Jo looked like he was on his way to the All-Star Game. During 13 games in November, he averaged 15.5 points, 12.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists while shooting 53 percent from the field. Noah had even unveiled a couple new weapons: an admittedly […]
