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 […]

Hornets-Bulls Preview

Chicago won’t get much time to think about its dominating win over Cleveland as the Bulls head back to Chicago to face New Orleans in their first back-to-back of the season. With a win against the Hornets, Chicago will improve to 3-0 for the first time since the MJ era (1996-97). The Bulls jumped all […]

Game Recap: Bulls 115, Cavaliers 86

As Cavaliers coach Byron Scott said after thegame, this was a good, old-fashioned butt whipping… …with the Cleveland as the butt and Chicago starring as the steel-toed boot. The Bulls jumped on the Cavaliers early and often — leading 32-16 after 12 minutes and 60-35 at the half — and they were dominant in almost […]

Bulls-Cavaliers Preview

As has been the Bulls custom when playing without their starting point guard, they won in an unconvincing way in the season opener. But they won and if you ask Coach Thibodeau, that’s all that matters. Joakim Noah had the type of game the Bulls are going to need to get from different guys if […]

Taj Gibson’s contract has been extended

The Bulls celebrated Halloween with some very good news. And I’m not talking about their season-opening win over the Sacramento Kings. Taj Gibson and the Bulls have agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $38 million. So we don’t have to worry about Gibson pulling an Omer Asik next summer. Said Gibson: “You just do […]

Kings-Bulls Preview

I have an old video game, “The Lion King” for Super Nintendo. In the opening scene of the game, it begins with Timon saying “it starts.” But he isn’t excited about the start, he seems dejected, as if he knows what’s coming isn’t good (spoiler alert Mufassa dies). That’s how I feel about this Bulls […]

Bulls-Pacers Preseason Preview

It’s been an interesting preseason so far. Without Derrick Rose, it was obviously going to be fascinating to see what the Bulls did. But this has been curious for different reasons. First, it was interesting to find out that Carlos Boozer was still alive. Boozington has put in two straight good preseason games. As I’ve […]

Is a Luol Deng breakdown inevitable?

Luol Deng recently admitted he was planning to have surgery on the torn ligament in his left wrist…but then stated his rehab program had essentially solved any problems. Said Deng: “I had the injury before (in 2004), and for some reason, maybe because it was my first time and I first had it, it felt a […]
