Game 38 Recap: Bobcats 96, Bulls 91

“We’ve got to do a better job of being a 48-minute team.” That was what Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said after his team beat the Celtics last Saturday night. In fact, it’s a variation of what he’s been saying all season. And it was like some kind of dark prophesy, as the Pistons built a […]

Bring on the Cavaliers (gulp): Bulls 98, Bobcats 89

What a crazy season. I mean, think about it. Before it even began, Ben Gordon left for Detroit. Then the season opened with Derrick Rose semi-hobbled by an ankle injury. Four games in, Tyrus Thomas fractured his left forearm during a weightlifting session at practice. Then Kirk Hinrich missed time with a sprained left thumb. John Salmons went through […]

Tyrus Thomas gone…and Jannero Pargo soon to follow?

In the comments section of the my last post, I provided the following quick scouting report for new Bulls player Hakim Warrick: “Long and athletic…excellent leaper…a dunk waiting to happen…good shot blocker…perimeter game needs work…too skinny. Sound familiar?” Yup. It’s a skill set eerily similar to the one belonging to Tyrus Thomas. So it would seem that, between […]

‘Cat food: Bobcats 113, Bulls 108

Okay, first off: I don’t believe in moral victories. A moral victory and a punch to the face won’t get you anything other than a punch in the face. The Bulls lost a winnable game…and that’s always a bummer. That said, if you had told me going in that the Bulls would score a season-high […]

Besting the Bobcats

The Chicago Bulls: .500 (at 40-40) for the first time since mid-November (when they were 5-5). I will now do the dance of joy! Chicago had already clinched a playoff berth when Charlotte suffered a three-point loss to the Thunder in Oklahoma City on Friday Night, but that hardly effected the quality of play. Both teams still wanted […]

A bad time to be hurtin’

I know it’s simply life in the NBA — just ask the Boston Celtics — but this sure is a lousy time for so many Bulls players to be banged up: John Salmons (left groin), Kirk Hinrich (sprained left ankle), Derrick Rose (bruised wrist), Tyrus Thomas (sore shoulder and flu-like symptoms) and Tim Thomas (back spasms) are all […]

Fresh ink: March 4, 2009

K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune: “The depth that defined the impressive victory over Orlando and desperation that underscored the comeback victory over Houston weren’t here Tuesday night. Listlessness and sloppiness replaced those elements as the Bulls succumbed meekly to the Bobcats in a 96-80 final that didn’t seem that close. That means the Bulls […]
