Preseason Game 1: Bulls 92, Grizzlies 88

Here are some random thoughts about the Bulls’ first preseason game: The starting unit looked pretty good: Sure, they appeared understandably rusty during the first half, but the ball movement and effort were there…and things really started to click after halftime. Chicago opened the second half by outscoring Memphis 21-4 — which included a 14-0 […]

Game 5 Summary: Bulls 77, Sixers 69

Cue the Bee Gees. The Bulls played with real “win or go home” desperation last night. It was ugly…but it kept them alive and in the playoffs for at least one more game. Credit the defense for holding the Sixers to 69 points on 25-for-78 from the field (32.1 percent) and 2-for-11 on threes (18.2 […]

Game 4 Recap: Sixers 89, Bulls 82

Even without Derrick Rose (torn ACL) and Joakim Noah (sprained ankle), the Bulls had enough to win yesterday. But they didn’t. The defense did its job, for the most part, limiting the Sixers to 39 percent shooting from the field and forcing them to miss 14 of their 19 three-point attempts. Of course, two of […]

The Bulls needed it badly to maintain their hold on said best record in […]

Game Recap: Bulls 100, Charlotte 68

Well then. I guess that loss to the Wizards really left a bad taste in everybody’s mouth. Not too surprising. This Bulls team almost never loses two games in a row. Every loss is like a wake-up call to the players…and they usually come back with a vengeance. Just ask the poor Bobcats. For all […]

Game Recap: Wizards 87, Bulls 84

The Wizards? Really? Okay, fine, I get that Derrick Rose (foot) and Luol Deng (ribs) were out with injuries. And it was the second night of back-to-back games. But the Bulls were at home against a Washington squad that arrived in Chicago with only 14 wins on the season and a miserable road record of […]

Game Recap: Bulls 100, Pistons 94 (OT)

It was just one of those games. You know what I’m talking about. One of those games where a lesser team claws and scratches their way to a near-win against a better team that looks a little stuck in the mud. It’s not like the Bulls weren’t playing defense. Detroit shot 39 percent and committed […]
