Game Recap: Grizzlies 102, Bulls 86

Some games are lost before the opening tip. This was one of those games. The Bulls were without Derrick Rose, who was hurting enough from his toe injury to sit himself out, rating his discomfort at a “six or seven” on a scale of one to 10. Said Rose: “I went out there to shoot. […]

Game Recap: Bulls 88, Celtics 79

This used to be a rivalry. Now these two teams are going in vastly different directions. The Bulls, who haven’t won a championship since 1998, are on their way back up. The Celtics, who won the NBA title in 2008, are on their way down. Mind you, not everybody agrees with me. Some people, like ESPN’s Peter May, are blaming […]

Game Recap: Bulls 78, Wizards 64

Stat of the night: 28. As in 28 field goal attempts. For John Lucas III. That is not a mistake. Nor is it a typo. It happened. John Lucas III. This is the same man who had attempted a total of 39 shots in the previous seven games he’d played in this season. My gast […]

Game Recap: Bulls 111, T-Wolves 100

Ricky Rubio. Derrick Rose. Wow. Thanks to all the post-lockout scheduling quirks, this NBA season has been and will be a strange one. The Bulls — who are still without Rip Hamilton (sore groin) and C.J. Watson (sprained left elbow) were playing the second game of back-to-backs on the road. They’re also in the middle […]

Game Recap: Bulls 92, Pistons 68

The Pistons were pretty much doomed to smacked down in this one. Let’s face it: The Bulls were not a happy group after Saturday night’s loss to the Hawks. They were flat out embarrassed in Atlanta. Good teams tend to bounce back from debacles like that. Particularly at home. And especially against bad teams. Credit the Pistons for […]
