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. […]

Complete embarrassment: Raptors 110, Bulls 78

Getting blown out on the road by the Cleveland Cavaliers was understandable, maybe even expected. After all, the Cavs have the reigning MVP, the reigning Coach of the Year (even if Mike Brown road LeBron James’ coattails to the award), post players, shooters, loads of depth. In short, Cleveland is a championship-caliber team. The Bulls are not. The Toronto […]

Dance party in Cleveland: Cavaliers 101, Bulls 87

If I’m being completely realistic, it was probably too much to ask for this particular Bulls team — still without starter Tyrus Thomas and key reserve Kirk Hinrich — to beat this particular Cavaliers team in Cleveland for a second time this season. It was simply a bad matchup on paper, and a worse matchup in reality. […]

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 […]

Circus Trip Game 4: Blazers 122, Bulls 98

The Bulls moved the ball, just like Vinny Del Negro wanted. They committed only six turnovers, which is crazy low for them. Luol Deng (25 points, 9-for-14) and John Salmons (22 points, 8-for-15) had it going on offense. Jannero Pargo (15 points, 2-for-3 from downtown) provided instant offense off the bench. Why, the team even outshot […]

Bulls-Blazers preview

The game: Chicago Bulls (6-6 overall, 2-5 on the road) at Portland Trail Blazers (10-5 overall, 5-2 at home). The history: Last season, the Blazers won the season series 2-0, beating the Bulls 116-74 during last year’s circus trip as Andres Nocioni (13 points), Drew Gooden (11 points) and Derrick Rose (11) points were the […]
