Recap: Bulls 96, Raptors 80

Playing without Derrick Rose for the first time in six game—an entire six game!—the Bulls capitalized on an ugly shooting night from all but one of the Raptors to claim their first road win of the year and avoid starting 0-4 away from home for the first time in five years.

Rapid Reaction Game 5: Heat 94, Bulls 91

Game 3 Preview: Heat-Bulls

Lots of people said this is what “playoff basketball” is all about, but it’s a stretch to say that what the […]
