Game Recap: Celtics 101, Bulls 95

The good news: According to ESPNChicago’s Nick Friedell, Derrick Rose has taken the next step in rehabbing his surgically repaired left knee, and he is now cutting again. The bad news: Chicago’s defense was terrible last night. The Bulls held the Celtics to 19 points on 35 percent shooting in the fourth quarter — which […]

Celtics-Bulls Preview

Something that has been true ever since Tom Thibodeau took over remains true this season, even throughout the injuries and personnel changes: the Bulls are rarely going to lose two games in a row. After getting outscored 31-19 in the fourth quarter and falling to the Thunder, the Bulls once again bounced back. They turned […]

Timberwolves-Bulls Preview

The Bulls were leading after three quarters against the Thunder, but they let the lead slip away. Kevin Durant took over for Oklahoma City and closed out the game. The Bulls had no one to answer Durant in crunch time. This isn’t a surprise with Derrick Rose on the bench. Luol Deng did his best […]

Game Recap: Thunder 97, Bulls 91

Following last night’s home loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, ESPNChicago’s Nick Friedell wrote that the Bulls miss Derrick Rose’s finishing touch. It’s a reasonable conclusion to come to, especially after watching Kevin Durant (24 points, 11-for-19, 4 rebounds) rip off 8 critical points in the final 3:16, a scoring spree that included two exceptionally […]

Magic-Bulls Preview

14-53. 26 percent. No, that’s not the percentage of roller coasters Nate Robinson is allowed to ride at amusement parks. That’s what the Bulls starters shot from the field against the Hornets. The bench wasn’t much better, as the team as a whole finished 29-88 (33 percent). You aren’t going to win many games against […]

A very fond farewell to Jim Durham

Jim Durham has passed away. He died on Sunday at his Texas home. It’s possible younger readers don’t know who Durham was. And that’s a real shame. Durham was the voice of the Chicago Bulls for nearly 20 years — on both radio and television — an era of excellence that lasted from 1973 to 1991. […]

Chicago’s offensive meltdown

6-for-15 4-for-12 2-for-10 1-for-8 1-for-8 Those are the shooting stats for the Bulls’ starters against the Hornets on Saturday. For those of you who enjoy simple math, that’s 14-for-53 combined, a conversion rate of 26.4 percent. That starting unit was also 0-for-5 from three-point range (Luol Deng was 0-for-3 and Kirk Hinrich was 0-for-2). There […]
