Bulls Blown Out By Mavs 105-83

  The Bulls can’t even get blown out right. Regardless of if you saw tonight’s game or not, there’s only one fact you need to know about Chicago’s 105-83 loss at home to the Mavericks: Accounting for a 1:14 “breather” in the first half and the last minute-plus where Tom Thibodeau actually waved the white […]

Game 43 Recap: Bulls 82, Mavericks 77

I’m sorry. I thought the Packers-Bears game wasn’t until Sunday. It was a real defensive battle out there, folks. The kind where it looked like both teams were wading through invisible mud. Chicago hit only 36.9 percent of their shots. Dallas converted on 35.6 of theirs. The Bulls scored 12 points in the third quarter. […]

Circus Trip: Bulls 88, Mavs 83

Midway through the third quarter, Dirk Nowitzki scored seven straight points — two layups sandwiched around a three-pointer — to give Dallas a 55-43 lead. That 12-point lead represented a 23-point turnaround from the 11-point lead Chicago had built during the second quarter. And I bet I’m not the only person who was having flashbacks to […]

Circus Trip: Bulls-Mavs preview

Rough time to be the Mavericks. They’ve opened the season with a 7-3 record… …and they’re in third place in the Southwest Division behind the Hornets (9-1) and Spurs (9-1). But hey, Dallas is getting it done. On one end of the court anyway. Despite the presence of guys like Dirk Nowitzki (23.6 PPG on […]

Wrangled again: Mavericks 113, “Bulls” 106

If someone had told me earlier in the season that — without Derrick Rose (sprained left wrist), Luol Deng (right calf strain) and Joakim Noah (left foot plantar fasciitis), not to mention the guys Chicago traded away — the Bulls would shoot over 52 percent and nearly pull off a 20-point comeback against the Mavericks in Dallas despite […]

Wrangled: Mavericks 122, Bulls 116

Defense… …the Bulls aren’t playing any. Okay, maybe that statement is a bit on the harsh side, but it’s not too far off the mark. The Bulls have now given up 100 or more points in 10 of their last 13 games. In fact, here’s a rundown of the points they’ve allowed during that stretch: 101, 107, 85, […]

Vinny: Literally into the game

Remember that three-pointer Jason Kidd hit to send the Bulls-Mavs game to overtime? Watch Vinny Del Negro lunge at Kidd from the Chicago bench and (presumably) scream to distract him. (Via Ball Don’t Lie.) The best (or worst) part? He’s done it before. And it didn’t work either time: The opponent drilled a triple on […]

I’ll take it

You know, a lot of people predicted that the Bulls would come back from their Western Conference road trip with an 11-game losing streak, particularly after they kicked the journey off with an overtime loss (of the “fourth-quarter collapse” variety) to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Instead, the team will return to the United Center on Tuesday for Johnny “Red” Kerr Night after a 4-3 […]
