Game Recap: Thunder 92, Bulls 78

“We were awful offensively, defensively, just disappointing. They really kicked our (butt) in every aspect of the game.” That’s what Joakim Noah had to say after yesterday’s stinker in Oklahoma City. Noah’s shooting may have been way off — Jo went 1-for-8 — but his analysis was on the money. The word “disappointing” pretty much sums this one […]

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 […]
