Points galore: Bulls 120, Pistons 87

On a night when the Bulls — who have been a notoriously awful scoring team all season — set season-highs in points (120), field goal percentage (57.1) and margin of victory (33), it’s worth asking the question: was the end result a function of the Bulls rising or merely a sign of how far the […]

Three in a row: Bulls 98, Pistons 87

Wait, wait, wait. Let me try to wrap my head around this craziness: The Bulls — who arrived in Detroit a mere 2-11 on the road and hadn’t won away from home in six long weeks – strolled into the Palace of Auburn Hills, took early command of their game against the Pistons, and built a 20-point fourth quarter […]

As reported by Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald, the NBA finally released the new salary cap and luxury-tax threshold: “For the second time since the cap was instituted in 1984, […]

The Bulls want Jannero Pargo

Now that Ben Gordon is a former Bull, it looks like former Bull Jannero Pargo might be coming back to Chicago. Pargo spent the last year playing overseas, first for the Moscow Dynamo (who had to buy out his contract due to financial difficulties) and then Olympiakos in Greece (otherwise known as the team that stole Josh Childress from the […]
