A foul loss: Nets 127, Bulls 116

The 2009-10 New Jersey Nets are one of the worst teams in NBA history. They have 12 wins and 67 losses. The 2009-10 Chicago Bulls — who, rumor has it, are fighting for a playoff spot – have given them two of those wins. In fact, the Nets won the season series against the Bulls 2-1. […]

Free fallin’: Heat 108, Bulls 95

ESPN’s Chris Broussard and Ric Bucher may not agree on whether Joakim Noah’s ongoing absence due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot is the costliest injury in the NBA, but the Bulls have now give up 100 or more points in 10 straight games. They’ve lost eight of those games, including the last seven […]

Chicago’s M.A.S.H. unit

Injuries. They’re the bane of every NBA team, especially during the second half of the season. The Bulls are no exception. Chicago’s last two losses — versus the Pacers in Indiana and against the Hawks in Chicago — might have been avoided with a couple extra healthy bodies. Well, the Pacers game at the very least. But […]

Brad Miller might play forever…

Last summer, I could have sworn Brad Miller said that part of him would rather be hunting back in Indiana than playing professional basketball. I took this to mean he was considering retirement when his giant contract ($12+ million) expires next summer. Not so! On why his NBA days aren’t over: “You know with my basketball […]

Agony of the feet

Joakim Noah is struggling with plantar fasciitis in his left foot, but he really, really wants to play. He’s wearing new orthotics, undergoing treatment, and even ingesting some mystrious “fruit drink” that’s supposed to help his feet. But the pain hasn’t gone away. In two games he’s missed two breakaway dunks. It’s not a coincidence. […]

Goodbye, John Salmons: Bulls 115, Knicks 109

Last year, the Bulls turned their season around by acquiring Brad Miller and John Salmons from the Sacramento Kings. This year, Chicago is sending Salmons to the Milwaukee Bucks for Kurt Thomas and Francisco Elson. I’m sorry, make that the expiring contracts of Kurt Thomas and Francisco Elson. That distinction is pretty important. Update! This trade may change […]

Fourth quarter collapse: Hawks 91, Bulls 81

Under the circumstances — no Joakim Noah, playing on the road against a great home team — the Bulls were pretty darn good through three quarters. And during that opening stretch, Derrick Rose gave us one of the great highlights of this season…or any other for that matter. Freaking amazing, right? Anyway, the Bulls played really well […]

Weekend recap: Bulls return from the almost-dead

After opening their seven-game Western Conference road trip with agonizing losses first to the Golden State Warriors and then to the Los Angeles Clippers, the Bulls seemed almost destined for a season-crippling losing streak. Going into Friday’s game against the Suns, an 0-7 trip appeared to be a very real possibility…and 0-4 at the very least. […]
