Game 26 Recap: Bulls 121, Sixers 76

I know you’re going to find this hard to believe… …but the Philadelphia 76ers have been on fire lately. The Sixers opened the season at Los Angeles Clippers-like 3-13 and then ripped off eight wins in their last 11 games heading into tonight’s matchup with the Bulls. They had held 12 of their last 13 opponents below 100 […]

Taj Gibson: Doubtful for the 76ers game

ESPNChicago’s Nick Friedell writes: “Chicago Bulls forward Taj Gibson sat out practice on Monday because of a concussion he suffered in the third quarter of Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers. Gibson is listed as doubtful for Tuesday night against the Philadelphia 76ers at the United Center.” Talk about bad news. The Bulls are […]

A happy return: Bulls 98, Sixers 84

There’s not much to say about Friday night’s home loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The “Bulls” — minus Derrick Rose (sprained wrist), Joakim Noah (plantar fasciitis) and Luol Deng (strained calf) — fought the good fight and (shockingly) took a brief fourth quarter lead before LeBron James decided to start taking the game seriously. Once […]

Uh…wow: Bulls 122, Sixers 90

Well…that transition was pretty seamless. As I was watching Chicago absolutely destroy a Philadelphia team that had won six of its last eight games — including an overtime win over the Bulls — I had to marvel again at the fact that only two members of this season’s projected starting lineup were actually in the starting lineup. […]

More roadkill: 76ers 106, Bulls 103 (OT)

When Chicago lost at home to the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night, I noted that as Derrick Rose goes, so go the Bulls. Rose didn’t play particularly well against the Clips (7-for-20, 4 turnovers), and the Bulls lost. And while that’s something of an oversimplification, his performance is a pretty good measure of how the […]

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 […]

Smacking down the Sixers

After Chicago’s 113-99 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, Tyrus Thomas said: “We’re the most dangerous team going into the playoffs in the Eastern Conference right now. I wouldn’t say anyone is counting us out, but we’re the underdog right now. I think we’re going to come out and shock a lot of people.” Wow. You […]

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 […]
