We’re Number One: Bulls 97, Nets 92

The Bulls finished the regular season with 62 wins and 20 losses. The Spurs lost in Phoenix. The Bulls have the best record in the league. And homecourt advantage in every possible playoff series. They did it by winning 21 of their last 23 games. That stretch began with back-to-back road wins in Orlando and Miami. It […]

A total team win: Bulls 84, Nets 73

Going into last night’s game, the Nets were 21 games below .500. But their record was at least somewhat deceiving since Deron Williams had only played six games in a New Jersey uniform. In possibly related news, the Nets began the night having won five games in a row, which was tied them with the […]

Game 34 Recap: Nets 96, Bulls 94

I guess we should have seen this coming. Sure, the Bulls had been winning — five in a row and 14 of their last 16 games — but there have been reasons for concern ever since Joakim Noah went down with a thumb injury. There was that loss to the Clippers in Noah’s first game on […]

A foul loss: Nets 127, Bulls 116

The 2009-10 New Jersey Nets are one of the worst teams in NBA history. They have 12 wins and 67 losses. The 2009-10 Chicago Bulls — who, rumor has it, are fighting for a playoff spot — have given them two of those wins. In fact, the Nets won the season series against the Bulls 2-1. […]

At least they beat New Jersey: Bulls 106, Nets 83

Well…huh. Look, I’m happy the Bulls won. I’m also glad they didn’t mess around and just dropped the hammer on a bad team (well, minus New Jersey’s brief third quarter comeback courtesy of Jarvis Hayes’ three-point bombing). And I’m downright relieved they didn’t lose a second home game this season to one of the worst teams in […]

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. […]

Knocking off the Nets

Well, now. That was more exciting than it should have been. And by “exciting” I mean “nerve-wracking, aggravating and potentially crippling to Chicago’s late-season playoff run.” They say that any landing you can walk away from is a good one, so I’m going to take today’s 103-94 win over the New Jersey Nets and just […]
