Preseason Game Seven: Magic vs. Bulls

Chicago’s preseason primer is almost over. It ended last night with an exciting (by preseason standards) 101-98 home defeat by the Orlando Magic. The Bulls ended a successful 5-2 preseason with questions and a bit of controversy. The questions revolve around continuity. With starters (particularly Rose) missing time, Vinny Del Negro was forced to use […]

Preseason Game Six: Timberwolves vs. Bulls

The Bulls improved to 5-1 in the preseason with a 94-90 home win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. To be honest, I’m not sure what to make of this game or all these wins considering that Chicago has been playing short-handed for most of the preseason. And that makes me nervous. So maybe it’s time to remember Rule […]

Let’s hear it for your 4-1 Chicago Bulls. Can we carry over the preseason record? No, probably not. Anywhere, here are some high and lowlights from last night’s 99-94 road win over the Timberwolves.

Preseason Game Three: Bulls vs. Bucks

The Bulls were undefeated in the preseason. The Bucks had given up 115 PPG over their first two preseason games. An irresistible force meeting a very moveable object? Yeah, right. Milwaukee put the clamps on the Derrick Rose-less (and Tyrus Thomas-less) Bulls, winning 98-86. Guys who looked good: Kirk Hinrich was solid if not spectacular […]

Preseason Game One: Bulls vs. Pacers

By and large, I don’t particularly enjoy preseason games. Ultimately, they’re meaningless, especially when they come against a lottery team that last season ranked 19th in Defensive Rating (109.2) and 26th in PPG Allowed (106.2). Of course, the Bulls ranked 18th in Defensive Rating (108.7) and 20th in PPG Allowed (102.5), so maybe I shouldn’t […]
