Wolves at Bulls Preview

  On the surface, the 22-21 Bulls hosting a 21-22 Wolves team that sits in 11th place in the loaded Western Conference looks like a very winnable matchup.

¬†For years the Bulls have touted 2014 as the year the team would finally have spending flexibility.

I’m not gonna give a whole drawn-out dramatic telling of tonight’s narrative. If you missed the game, here’s how it went: Bulls briefly led to start, then Houston claimed the lead on a flurry from James Harden, who looked just fine on his bad ankle, and the Rockets stretched their lead bit by bit into […]

Bulls vs Rockets: The Beat Goes On

Both squads in tonight’s game are big market teams battling injuries and deflecting rampant trade rumors, yet their respective trajectories could not be more opposite. The Rockets are 16-9, and look poised to add a couple rotation players via trade, while Chicago is essentially dead in the water, and possibly content with treading it for […]
