Game 39 Recap: Bulls 99, Pacers 86

So that’s what it feels like to win on the road. In my game preview post, I said the Bulls were going to need Derrick Rose to play like an All-Star to beat the Pacers. Maybe I was right. Maybe I was wrong. That said… …Rose did play like an All-Star. And the Bulls won. […]

Game 23 Recap: Bulls 92, Pacers 73

This was one of those classic “the final score doesn’t tell the whole story” games. Danny Granger — Indiana’s best player — didn’t play because of a sprained ankle.

No sweep for you: Pacers 100, Bulls 90

So much for sweeping the season series with the Pacers. How did the Bulls shoot 57 percent against a pretty good Portland team on one night and then shoot 41.9 percent against a pretty not-so-good Indiana team the very next night? For starters, they were playing on the road, where they are 12-19 on the season. And they were playing in […]

Breaking the Conseco curse: Bulls 109, Pacers 101

Going into last night’s game, Chicago had compiled a 3-17 record at Conseco Fieldhouse since Indy’s basketball palace first opened in 1999. And it’s not like the Pacers have been a powerhouse team the last several seasons. For whatever reason, the Bulls simply haven’t been able to win there. That all changed last night. I have to admit, though, it looked like they were destined […]

A brief look ahead

After finishing their seven-game Western Conference Road trip with a 5-2 record, the Chicago Bulls are feeling pretty good about themselves. And they should be. After all, they became the first NBA team to ever beat five straight winning teams on a single road trip. That’s a heck of a lot better than being on the wrong […]
