Nuggets-Bulls Preview

With Carmelo Anthony and his Denver Nuggets coming to town, this could be one of those classic “look what you (supposedly) could’ve had” games. There was a lot of buzz about whether the Bulls should (or, rather, could) trade for Anthony during the offseason. ‘Melo apparently wanted out of Denver…although you wonder whether he still […]

Blazers-Bulls preview

Has anybody else noticed that Derrick Rose currently leads the league in PPG (33.5) and Joakim Noah is tops in RPG (18.0)? I’m not going to get too excited. After all, the season is two games old and those numbers are going to come back down to earth. However, how about a little trivia? The last […]

Pistons-Bulls game preview

Tomorrow night, the Bulls face the Pistons in the United Center. Both teams enter the game 0-1. But whereas the Bulls lost to a young, up-and-coming team with a viable MVP candidate, the Pistons lost to the New Jersey Nets.

Bulls-Thunder game preview

The Bulls open their season tonight against the Thunder in Oklahoma City. And since both teams are currently undefeated at 0-0, it’s hard to identify any regular season trends. So let’s consider last season. During the 2009-10 campaign, the Thunder (27-14 at home) played the Bulls (17-24 on the road) twice, winning 98-85 at the United […]

Derrick Rose versus Steve Nash

Steve Nash is one of the best point guards in the NBA. Has been for years. Even though there were (and, in truth, still are) a fair number of dissenting opinions regarding his back-to-back MVPs, the reality is players don’t win that particular award without kicking some serious you-know-what along the way.

Memo to the Bulls: Stop Atlanta’s fastbreak

Beating Atlanta without Joakim Noah is going to be…difficult. The Hawks are one of the best teams in the league, and they’re 20-5 at home this season. To pull off the upset, the Bulls will need every edge they can get. Here’s one, courtesy of ESPN Stats and Information: The key to beating the Hawks is not allowing […]

A brief look ahead

After finishing their seven-game Western Conference Road trip with a 5-2 record, the Chicago Bulls are feeling pretty good about themselves. And they should be. After all, they became the first NBA team to ever beat five straight winning teams on a single road trip. That’s a heck of a lot better than being on the wrong […]

Bulls-Suns preview: A game of contrasts

Okay…let’s talk Bulls-Suns. Note that many of the following stats were provided by Peter Newmann of ESPN Statistics and Information Research. Fact: After hitting a total of 20 three-pointers during his first four seasons in the NBA, Phoenix Suns backup center Channing Frye has nailed 98 threes this season. That’s the second second-most in the league […]

Now is the best time to play the Pistons

Okay, so the circus trip was one win over the Sacramento Kings from being a complete disaster. But the Bulls are finally home — where they will play 16 of their next 23 games — and facing a Pistons team even more ravaged by injury than they’ve been. Charlie Villanueva is questionable with a broken nose, […]
