Four in a row: Bulls 101, Magic 93

Again I say: who are these guys and what have they done with the Chicago Bulls? Or maybe the team we’ve been watching most of the season — the same one that coughed up a 35-point lead at home to the Sacramento Kings — was the imposter. Maybe now that Tyrus Thomas is back from injury and […]

Epic Failure: Nets 103, Bulls 101

I moved to Chicago back in the summer of 1998, so I didn’t become a hard core Bulls fan until the Michael Jordan era was coming to its storybook ending. It was a case of unlucky timing on my part, because the Bulls were about to go from the top of the mountain to the bottom of the trash heap. […]

An much-needed but uninspiring win: Bulls 92, Pistons 85

During last night’s telecast of the Pistons-Bulls game, Neil Funk — Comcast SportsNet Chicago’s play-by-play man — tried to put the Bulls’ recent woes into perspective by reminding his audience (and I’m paraphrasing here) that the New Jersey Nets have set a new NBA record for futility by losing their first 18 games in a row to […]

Circus Trip Game 6: Bucks 99, Bulls 97

With last night’s loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, the Bulls finished their circus road trip 1-5. They are now 10-61 on that annual trek through hell over the last decade…so don’t blame the coaches or players if they get the shakes any time they hear the word “circus.” Well. At least it’s over. Until next year. I suppose there […]

Circus Trip Game 5: Jazz 105, Bulls 86

When Aaron Gray returning from injury was by far and away the best news of the night, you know things must have gone pretty badly for the Bulls. Make that four blowouts in the last four games, during which the Bulls have been outscored by a combined 77 points. They are now 1-4 on their […]

Shooting apocalypse

The good news: the Bulls are currently ranked 10th in Opponents Field Goal Percentage (.436), Opponents Three-Point Percentage (.325) and Defensive Rating (101.6 Points Per 100 Possessions), and they’re 11th in Opponents Effective Field Goal Percentage (.476). Chicago’s opponents shoot free throws at the league’s 12th-best rate (.759), but the Bulls have given up fewer […]

Upon further review: Nuggets 90, Bulls 89

Well, you can go ahead and file this one under “Almosts,” “Heart-Breakers,” or “What-Ifs.” Take your pick. Last night’s loss to the Denver Nuggets might very well qualify as one of the closest one-point defeats in NBA history. With the score knotted at 89-all, Kirk Hinrich fouled Chauncey Billups as the Nuggets guard was driving […]

Game 6: Are you kidding me?!

No, seriously…are you kidding me?! I don’t even know where to begin. Really. I have no freaking idea. Remember that scene in The Princess Bride when Inigo Montoya said: “Let me ‘splain. [pause] No, there is too much. Let me sum up. Buttercup is marry’ Humperdinck in a little less than half an hour. So all […]
