Game Recap: Bulls 108, Knicks 101

The Good: The Bulls bounced back from a bad home loss to the Milwaukee Bucks by busting one of the league’s best teams on the road. Chicago’s offense put on a show by shooting a sizzling 57.4 percent from the field and scoring at torrid rate of 117.2 points per 100 possessions. The defense also […]

Game Recap: Pacers 80, Bulls 76

The subtitle of this game should be: The Night that Offense Died. The Bad: The Pacers shot 36 percent from the field, went 2-for-10 from three-point range, missed seven free throws…and won. The Worse: Chicago’s defense made Indiana’s offense look terrible — outside of Paul George — but The Bulls’ offense offset that. Big time. […]

Game Recap: Thunder 97, Bulls 91

Following last night’s home loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, ESPNChicago’s Nick Friedell wrote that the Bulls miss Derrick Rose’s finishing touch. It’s a reasonable conclusion to come to, especially after watching Kevin Durant (24 points, 11-for-19, 4 rebounds) rip off 8 critical points in the final 3:16, a scoring spree that included two exceptionally […]

Game Recap: Bulls 99, Magic 93

The Orlando Magic entered last night’s game a surprising 2-0. Possibly even more surprising was their post-Dwight Howard offensive uptick.

A few days ago, I said there wasn’t a solid […]

Should Luol Deng be an All-Star?

The short answer: No. Now, before I get to my long answer, let me make it clear that I love Luol Deng as a basketball player and readily acknowledge that he is an indispensable member of the Bulls. That said, I can’t see any legitimate argument for adding him to the Eastern Conference All-Star team. […]

Luol Deng: Hurt worse than we thought

We thought Luol Deng had a sprained left wrist. We thought he was day-to-day. Turns out there’s a torn ligament in that wrist and Deng will be missing in action indefinitely. Said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau: “He’s going to be out for awhile. It’s a pain tolerance thing.” Uh oh. Added Deng: “I know it’s a bad injury, […]

Dwight Howard? Really?

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports writes that the Los Angeles Lakers might have the best shot at trading for Dwight Howard…but the Bulls are also quietly in contention: What’s more, the Chicago Bulls are still a sleeper for Howard, several league executives believe. “Chicago may tell Orlando to take any two players – or three […]
