Game Recap: Bulls 98, Wizards 88

This was a mouthwash game. As in: The Bulls needed to get the bad taste of Sunday’s loss to Miami out of there mouths. Especially Derrick Rose. As everyone in the free world already knows, D-Rose missed a couple free throws that could have won that game, and then a jumper that could have tied […]

Game Recap: Heat 97, Bulls 93

Did the NBA playoffs start already? Yesterday’s slug fest between the Bulls and Heat sure felt like a postseason match-up. Big shots. Big misses. Amazing plays and critical mistakes. Pushing. Shoving. Cursing. Call and non-calls that surely had both fan bases freaking out. And let’s not forget two superstars — Derrick Rose (34 points, 6 rebounds, 6 […]

Game Recap: Pacers 95, Bulls 90

 Let’s be completely honest about something… …it would be very, very, very easy to focus too much attention on the Bulls’ last chance of winning this game. There were 22 seconds left and the Bulls were down 92-90. The Indiana defense collapsed on a driving Derrick Rose. Rather than force up a contested shot, Rose passed to Brian Scalabrine for […]

Said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau: “He’s going to be out for awhile. It’s a pain tolerance thing.” Uh oh. Added Deng: “I know it’s a bad injury, […]
