Bulls at Celtics Preview

The Bulls and Raptors have been jockeying for the three seed for a little while now, and with Toronto sweeping a home-and-home against the Celtics, the onus is now on the Bulls to do the same starting tonight. When looking at the schedules of not only Toronto and Chicago, but Brooklyn as well, all three […]

Game Recap: Celtics 71, Bulls 69

The Bulls arrived in Boston faced with the depressing realization that Derrick Rose might not play at all this season. Of course, they weren’t going to get any sympathy from the Celtics, who have lost three players to season-ending injuries in the last three weeks. Not only their own All-Star point guard, Rajon Rondo, but […]

Game Recap: Bulls 100, Celtics 99 (OT)

The Good: The Bulls controlled most of the game and then made key plays at the end of regulation and in overtime to push their Eastern Conference-leading road record to 12-5. Only the Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder (both 13-5) have better records away from home. The Bad: The Bulls controlled most of […]

Game Recap: Bulls 100, Celtics 89

Player of the Game: Let’s go ahead and get this over with up front: Joakim Noah owned this game. Noah usually performs well against the Celtics and openly dislikes Boston’s Kevin Garnett. He also hates losing — which the Bulls did on Tuesday night in Memphis — so maybe he was playing with an extra edge. Whatever […]

Celtics-Bulls Preview

Something that has been true ever since Tom Thibodeau took over remains true this season, even throughout the injuries and personnel changes: the Bulls are rarely going to lose two games in a row. After getting outscored 31-19 in the fourth quarter and falling to the Thunder, the Bulls once again bounced back. They turned […]

Statement Made: Bulls 97, Celtics 81

There have been an awful lot of Derrick Rose-themed debates this season. Early on, there was the “Rose versus Rondo” debate. Many people chose Rondo because he was considered a much better defender, and because he’s more of a pure point guard, while Rose looks to score first and pass second. Or so the theory […]

Game 36 Recap: Bulls 90, Celtics 79

Homecourt sure makes a big difference. After two straight road losses to sub-.500 teams — due primarily to a couple of truly awful defensive efforts — the Bulls dusted off their defense and put the clamps on the Celtics. And that defense was extra clampy. The Celts were coming off a pair of games in which they shot the lights out […]

Game 17 Recap: Celtics 104, Bulls 92

Words. They have a way of coming back to haunt you. Last night, words sure came back to haunt Joakim Noah and the rest of the Bulls. Less than a month ago, Noah appeared on on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000 and had some joking-but-kinda-serious things to say about Boston’s Kevin Garnett. In case you […]

Game 5 Recap: Celtics 110, Bulls 105 (OT)

The second night of back-to-backs is always tough…especially when you have to play the Celtics in Boston. Still, despite falling behind by 16 points, the Bulls claws back into the game and forced overtime. But in the end, they finished with another check mark in the Loss Column and dropped to 2-3 on the season. […]
