Game Recap: Bulls 93, Sixers 82

So all it took for the Bulls to break out of their slump was an historic performance by Joakim Noah. That and a visit to the United Center by a team struggling even more than the Bulls have been. In case you missed it, the Sixers aren’t known as “the Sixers” anymore. They’ve been rechristened […]

Game Recap: Bulls 96, Sixers 89

The Bulls picked up a crucial and impressive road win in Philadelphia last night.

Game 35 Recap: Sixers 105, Bulls 99

Before the game, Bulls broadcaster Stacey King listed his keys for the game. One was that Chicago needed to control Philly’s guards. Didn’t happen. Jodie Meeks (24 points, 8-for-11, 4-for-7 from downtown) and Jrue Holiday (19 points, 8-for-14, 6 assists) got whatever they wanted, and Lou Williams burned the Bulls for 20 points off the bench.
