Game Recap: Bulls 106, Heat 102

“John Lucas III powers Bulls past Heat” That’s the title of the AP recap of last night’s win over the Heat. I never thought those words would be strung together in the English language.

Game Recap: Bulls 104, Knicks 99

The Bulls were once again missing three key players — Luol Deng (wrist), Rip Hamilton (shoulder), and C.J. Watson (ankle) — but pulled out yet another win in their typical grind-it-out fashion.

Game Recap: Magic 99, Bulls 94

On Wednesday night, Derrick Rose hit a walk-off buzzer beater that covered up the fact that the Bulls played awful defense against the  Bucks. That shoddy defensive effort extended through the first quarter of last night’s game against the Magic. During that initial 12 minutes, Orlando shot 15-for-20 (75 percent), including 6-for-8 from three-point range. The […]
