Two in a row: Bulls 104, Pacers 95

With rumors swirling about Vinny Del Negro’s dubious future, Bulls GM Gar Forman finally spoke up: “Vinny is our coach. Our goal is to get better each and every day. As a management team, we’re exploring all options in order to get better. We expect our coaches each and every day to get this team better. […]

Sources say the Vinny Countdown Clock is ticking…

According to Chris Broussard of ESPN The Magazine: “The decision to fire head coach Vinny Del Negro has already been made, according to sources with knowledge of the Chicago Bulls’ thinking. The fact that the Bulls’ front office has not been able to settle on a replacement is the main thing keeping the embattled Del […]

Welcome back, Ty: Bulls 96, Hornets 85

Maybe all the Bulls needed was Tyrus Thomas. Okay, I’m kidding. Kind of. But Chicago is now 4-2 with Tyrus in the lineup, as opposed to 7-15 without him. Some of the difference can be attributed to the added depth. For all his faults, Thomas has the potential to explode for 20 points, 10 rebounds […]

Different story, same ending: Knicks 88, Bulls 81

Were the Bulls suffering from an emotional hangover after their epic failure against the Kings on Monday night? Well, let me put it this way: the Knicks entered Tuesday night’s game ranked 22nd in Defensive Efficiency (106.5 Points Allowed Per 100 Possessions), and yet the Bulls staggered through a first quarter in which they scored only 12 points on 6-for-21 shooting while […]

A nightmare loss: Kings 102, Bulls 98

Not again? How about never before? With 8:49 left in the third quarter, John Salmons hit an 11-footer to help the Bulls go up 79-44 on the Kings. For those who enjoy simple math, that represented a 35-point lead with less than 21 minutes to go. Completely and utterly insurmountable, right? Historically speaking, it should have been. But, of course, it was not. […]

A quality win: Bulls 101, Hawks 98

Not again. That’s what many Bulls fans had to be thinking when Chicago fell behind 29-16 after the first quarter of last night’s home game against the Hawks. It was eerily reminiscent of the second quarter of the infamous “Apocalypse in Atlanta” back on December 9th, during which the Bulls got outscored 34-21 en route to an embarrassing 118-83 smackdown.

A loss with a little fire: Lakers 96, Bulls 87

For three quarters, the Bulls played their most inspired basketball of the season. They hustled. They scrapped. They crashed the boards with a manic vengeance. And, most improbably, they held a 73-72 lead over the defending champions going into the fourth quarter. It was last spring all over again, only this time the Bulls were […]

Derrick Rose: Go-to guy or not?

When a team is losing, everybody comes under intense scrutiny: management (who assembled the talent), the coaching staff (who direct the talent), and the players (who are the talent). It’s just the nature of the beast. Fans need someone to blame for their heartbreak. Derrick Rose has been pretty lucky so far. After all, Vinny […]
