Game Recap: Bulls 96, Hornets 87

The Good: The Bulls returned from the All-Star break to break their two-game losing streak with a good win over the Hornets. In doing so, they pushed their Eastern Conference-leading road record to 16-10 and moved to within one game of the Indiana Pacers for the Central Division lead. The Better: Seeing the team’s point […]

Chicago’s offensive meltdown

6-for-15 4-for-12 2-for-10 1-for-8 1-for-8 Those are the shooting stats for the Bulls’ starters against the Hornets on Saturday. For those of you who enjoy simple math, that’s 14-for-53 combined, a conversion rate of 26.4 percent. That starting unit was also 0-for-5 from three-point range (Luol Deng was 0-for-3 and Kirk Hinrich was 0-for-2). There […]

Game Recap: Bulls 90, Hornets 67

I love the focus of this team. The Bulls are now seven games into their season-long nine-game road trip. They’re 5-2 on the trip so far and have three straight crushing victories over bad teams. That may not sound all that impressive — and I know I’ve expressed concern over the Bulls padding their record […]

Trap Evaded: Bulls 85, Hornets 77

No Chris Paul. No Trevor Ariza. A struggling team that had lost 10 of its last 15 games and was playing the second night of back-to-back road games at the tail end of a five-game road trip without its All-World point guard. Meanwhile, the Bulls were finally home after their own five-game road trip in […]

Game 52 Recap: Bulls 97, Hornets 88

A total team effort. That’s what last night’s win in New Orleans was. The Bulls struggled in the first half and trailed by as many as 12 points. But, by the end of the game, they could boast some pretty sweet accomplishments. The Hornets are one of the best defensive teams in the league, but the […]

Best road trip ever: Bulls 108, Hornets 106 (OT)

Most people who follow the Bulls are familiar with their annual circus road trip from hell, which happens in mid to late-November when the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus moves into the United Center for two weeks. Less well-known is the “other road trip” that occurs each season in late-January to early-February, shortly […]

Welcome back, Ty: Bulls 96, Hornets 85

Maybe all the Bulls needed was Tyrus Thomas. Okay, I’m kidding. Kind of. But Chicago is now 4-2 with Tyrus in the lineup, as opposed to 7-15 without him. Some of the difference can be attributed to the added depth. For all his faults, Thomas has the potential to explode for 20 points, 10 rebounds […]

Weekend recap: One up, one down

This was a typical weekend in the life of the 2008-09 Chicago Bulls: A frustrating road loss to an opponent they probably should have beaten followed by an overpowering home win over an opponent they probably shouldn’t have. Chances are scientists will discover the Higgs boson and uncover the secrets of interstellar travel before anyone […]
