Game Recap: Bulls 98, Hawks 77

The Bulls don’t lose two games in a row. They just don’t. That’s one of the greatest qualities of this team. They respond so well after a loss. The focus narrows and everybody rededicates themselves to winning. You could see it in the way the Bulls rebounded the basketball. After two straight sub-par (read that: pathetic) rebounding […]

Game Recap: Nuggets 108, Bulls 91

I think we can all agree on one thing: This was bound to happen. The Bulls keep playing on without Derrick Rose (groin) and The Ghost of Rip Hamilton (shoulder). Somehow, despite these conspicuous absences and that torn ligament in Luol Deng’s left wrist, they’ve forged the NBA’s best record (40-11). And, thanks to Miami’s […]

Game Recap: Bulls 94, Raptors 82

Ho hum. Another Bulls victory. Minus Rip Hamilton (old). Again. Minus Derrick Rose (groin) too. It was the 15th game this team has played without Rose. The Bulls have won 11 of those games. (And yes, Tom Thibodeau should be named coach of the year, no question.) Actually, for much of the game, the Raptors […]

Game Recap: Bulls 85, Magic 59

No. That score is not a typo. You’re not imagining it. It really happened. The Magic eked out only 59 points. At home. Against a Bulls squad minus its best player (Derrick Rose) and another starter (Rip Hamilton). Not that Rose and Hamilton act as defensive anchors for the team or anything like that, but the Bulls were […]
