Bulls 101, Suns 92

It’s late, so we’ll keep this one on the short side. In typical Thibs fashion, the Bulls bounced back from an absolute drubbing in Sacramento and returned with a noticeable focus in their 101-92 road win in Phoenix tonight.

Bulls at Suns Preview

At the beginning of 2014, it was clear that January was the time for the Bulls to climb their way up the Eastern Conference. They did just that, going 11-4 against a schedule chock full of Eastern bottom feeders and home games against banged up Western squads. Now comes the hard part, as with the […]

Bulls Finally Fall in ’14

Well kids, that’s why you shouldn’t believe in momentum. As noted in the game preview, Washington was just 2-5 since New Year’s, with their wins coming over two teams in a heap of trouble at the moment, while Chicago was the only team still unbeaten in 2014. Those things were irrelevant in tonight’s 102-88 loss […]

Bulls vs Wizards Preview

In what qualifies as a showdown in this year’s Eastern Conference, the 17-18 Bulls, holders of the 5 seed and, along with Denver, the league’s best winning streak having won five in a row, host the 16-19 Wizards, currently the 6 seed. The defense-centric Bulls (second in defensive rating, second to last in offensive rating) […]
