Apocalypse in Atlanta: Hawks 118, Bulls 83

You know the story: the Bulls couldn’t buy a shot (36.4 percent), couldn’t hold onto the ball (19 turnovers), couldn’t defend (50 percent shooting for the Hawks), couldn’t protect the paint (where they were outscored 46-34), couldn’t finish in transition (only 6 fast break points compared to 22 for Atlanta), couldn’t even begin to cool down a hot hand (former Bull […]

Epic Failure: Nets 103, Bulls 101

I moved to Chicago back in the summer of 1998, so I didn’t become a hard core Bulls fan until the Michael Jordan era was coming to its storybook ending. It was a case of unlucky timing on my part, because the Bulls were about to go from the top of the mountain to the bottom of the trash heap. […]

Do the Bulls need an alpha dog?

Only 18 games into the 2009-10 season, the Bulls appear to have a few significant team needs. These include: an inside scoring threat, a few high percentage three-point marksman (or even one would help), a shooting coach to work with John Salmons and Kirk Hinrich, a beefy frontcourt player who can push big men out […]

Complete embarrassment: Raptors 110, Bulls 78

Getting blown out on the road by the Cleveland Cavaliers was understandable, maybe even expected. After all, the Cavs have the reigning MVP, the reigning Coach of the Year (even if Mike Brown road LeBron James’ coattails to the award), post players, shooters, loads of depth. In short, Cleveland is a championship-caliber team. The Bulls are not. The Toronto […]

Dance party in Cleveland: Cavaliers 101, Bulls 87

If I’m being completely realistic, it was probably too much to ask for this particular Bulls team — still without starter Tyrus Thomas and key reserve Kirk Hinrich — to beat this particular Cavaliers team in Cleveland for a second time this season. It was simply a bad matchup on paper, and a worse matchup in reality. […]

Tyrus Thomas for Al Harrington?

Heading into October, it looked like this season was going to decide Tyrus Thomas’ fate as a member of the Chicago Bulls. However, rumors seem to indicate that Chicago management has seen pretty much everything they need to see out of their enigmatic forward. Apparently, the Bulls have had discussions with “several teams” and an […]

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, […]

Circus Trip Game 6: Bucks 99, Bulls 97

With last night’s loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, the Bulls finished their circus road trip 1-5. They are now 10-61 on that annual trek through hell over the last decade…so don’t blame the coaches or players if they get the shakes any time they hear the word “circus.” Well. At least it’s over. Until next year. I suppose there […]
