More roadkill: 76ers 106, Bulls 103 (OT)

When Chicago lost at home to the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night, I noted that as Derrick Rose goes, so go the Bulls. Rose didn’t play particularly well against the Clips (7-for-20, 4 turnovers), and the Bulls lost. And while that’s something of an oversimplification, his performance is a pretty good measure of how the […]

Sir Charles: “Give Vinny some credit.”

During an appearance on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000, Charles Barkley gave mad props to — wait for it — Chicago Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro. You know, the same guy who was put on a Death Watch back in December. Said Sir Charles: “Vinny has done a good job. I couldn’t understand […]

A brief look ahead

After finishing their seven-game Western Conference Road trip with a 5-2 record, the Chicago Bulls are feeling pretty good about themselves. And they should be.

  After four straight road victories over winning teams, the Bulls have reached .500 (21-21) for the first time since they were 6-6 back on November 21. And mind you, this was after starting their seven-game Western Conference road trip with losses against the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers. Said Derrick Rose: “I don’t […]

What can Brown do for the Bulls?

So…what does the Devin Brown acquisition mean for the Chicago Bulls? Who is he, and what skills does he bring to the table? Can he break into the rotation or will he simply take over Aaron Gray’s role of passing out Gatorade in the team huddles? For starters, here’s a scouting report on Brown from ESPN’s John Hollinger: “Few […]

There’s no place like road: Bulls 98, Spurs 93

Well, I guess it’s safe to say that swapping Aaron Gray for Devin Brown hasn’t upset team chemistry. All joking aside…can you believe what we’re seeing? Three straight games in which the Bulls have hit better than 50 percent of their field goals. Not bad for a team that can’t shoot. Three straight wins on the road […]
