Game Recap: Bulls 97, Hawks 58

It’s safe to say the Bulls have had an up and down season. They have the one of the best road records in the league (10-5) but are barely above .500 at home (11-10). They’ve earned impressive wins over the Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat (on the road). They’re also 3-0 versus the […]

Game Recap: Bulls 108, Knicks 101

The Good: The Bulls bounced back from a bad home loss to the Milwaukee Bucks by busting one of the league’s best teams on the road. Chicago’s offense put on a show by shooting a sizzling 57.4 percent from the field and scoring at torrid rate of 117.2 points per 100 possessions. The defense also […]

Game Recap: Bucks 104, Bulls 96

The Good: Led by Carlos Boozer (22 points, 8-for-15, 11 rebounds), Chicago had another strong night on the inside, outscoring the Milwaukee 56-34 in the paint.

Game Recap: Bulls 118, Cavaliers 92

The Good: The Bulls won their third game in a row and stayed perfect in 2013 with a blowout win over the Cavaliers. Chicago lost the first quarter 30-22 and then outscored Cleveland 96-62 the rest of the way. The Bulls — who scored at least 30 points in the final three quarters — established […]

Game Recap: Bulls 96, Heat 89

The Good: The Bulls shook off a stretch of uncharacteristically poor play — they lost three of four games, including back-to-back blowout losses to the Atlanta Hawks and Houston Rockets and a pitiful home defeat to the dreadful Charlotte Bobcats, who came into the United Center on an 18-game skid — to win back-to-back road […]

Game Recap: Bulls 96, Magic 94

The Good: Despite the absence of Joakim Noah (flu-like symptoms), Chicago’s starting frontcourt was dominant, combining for 75 points on 29-for-50 shooting (58 percent) to go with 25 rebounds, 7 assists, 4 blocked shots and 3 steals. Carlos Boozer — who always seems to become more assertive on offense when Noah is out — erupted […]

Game Summary: Bobcats 91, Bulls 81

There was the home loss to a New Orleans Hornets team that ranks 29th in both PPG and Defensive Rating. Then there was the 21-point road defeat by the Los Angeles Clippers that began a three-game losing streak. Let’s not forget that time the Bulls choked away a 27-point lead to the Milwaukee Bucks and fell […]

Game Recap: Bulls 87, Wizards 77

The Bulls must have been glad to get a win after back-to-back blowout losses to the Hawks and Rockets… …but they likely would have liked to have played better. The Wizards are a league-worst 4-24 this season. According to Basketball-Reference, they rank 30th in PPG (88.8), Field Goal Percentage (40.6), Effective Field Goal Percentage (44.3) […]

Game Recap: Rockets 120, Bulls 97

That was horrible. Chicago fans didn’t expect the Bulls to give them a lump of coal like this, not at home on Christmas Day against the team that used a contract with a “poison pill” to steal Omer Asik away from them last summer. The numbers are painful to review. Better bite your lip before […]

Game Recap: Bulls 100, Celtics 89

Player of the Game: Let’s go ahead and get this over with up front: Joakim Noah owned this game. Noah usually performs well against the Celtics and openly dislikes Boston’s Kevin Garnett. He also hates losing — which the Bulls did on Tuesday night in Memphis — so maybe he was playing with an extra edge. Whatever […]
