A rotten homecoming: Clippers 90, Bulls 82

Back when I was four or five years old, my mom once dragged me to visit my great grandmother on a Friday night. That was the last thing I wanted to do, not because I didn’t love my great grandma, but because Friday night was when CBS aired my favorite television show: The Incredible Hulk. […]

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 […]

Some thoughts on Bulls-Clippers

So we all know already that the Bulls’ next two games — against the beatable (read that: terrible) Clippers (10-34) and Kings (10-36) — are the team’s best (read that: only) chances to avoid returning home on February 10th (versus the Pistons) with an 11-game losing streak and a mob of angry fans rioting outside […]
