Bulls 101, Suns 92

It’s late, so we’ll keep this one on the short side. In typical Thibs fashion, the Bulls bounced back from an absolute drubbing in Sacramento and returned with a noticeable focus in their 101-92 road win in Phoenix tonight. They set the tone early, playing strong defense and limiting their turnovers on offense. Chicago built […]

Bulls at Suns Preview

At the beginning of 2014, it was clear that January was the time for the Bulls to climb their way up the Eastern Conference. They did just that, going 11-4 against a schedule chock full of Eastern bottom feeders and home games against banged up Western squads. Now comes the hard part, as with the […]

Game Recap: Bulls 112, Suns 106 (OT)

The NBA has certain axioms that have stood the test of time. One of these is that any road win is a good win. Another is that it is important — possibly even crucial — to open an extended road swing with a victory. Well, the Bulls started their annual circus road trip with an […]

Bulls-Suns Preview

Teague, Butler, Deng, Taj, Noah. That’s who finished the game for the Bulls. If it weren’t for some missed foul shots and untimely turnovers, the Bulls could’ve pulled this game out over the Celtics. Although the lineup didn’t work, it was nice to see some of these guys getting minutes, and important minutes at that. […]

Another Close Escape: Bulls 97, Suns 94

This win should have been easier…right? The Suns have been eliminated from postseason contention and have nothing left to play for. Of course, weird things can happen at the end of the regular season. Just look at San Antonio’s recent six-game losing streak. Or, if you prefer, look at some of last night’s other games. The […]

Circus Trip: Bulls 123, Suns 115 (20T)

Fifth game of the circus trip. Second night of back-to-backs following a tough loss to the Lakers. Down 50-27 in the second quarter. Apparently out of gas. Emphasis on the word “apparently.” As I watched Chicago’s amazing comeback last night, I was reminded of what Joakim Noah said a few weeks ago when the Bulls fell behind big to the […]

The Revenge of Steve Nash: Suns 111, Bulls 105

Well, so much for Derrick Rose owning Steve Nash. On paper, last night’s matchup of rising star versus former MVP looks kind of even. Rose finished with 23 points (7-for-16 from the field, 8-for-9 at the line), 5 rebounds, 10 assists and a steal. Nash had 22 points (8-for-20, 2-for-3 on threes, 4-for-4 from the stripe), […]

Derrick Rose versus Steve Nash

Steve Nash is one of the best point guards in the NBA. Has been for years. Even though there were (and, in truth, still are) a fair number of dissenting opinions regarding his back-to-back MVPs, the reality is players don’t win that particular award without kicking some serious you-know-what along the way. Captain Canada currently […]

Weekend recap: Bulls return from the almost-dead

After opening their seven-game Western Conference road trip with agonizing losses first to the Golden State Warriors and then to the Los Angeles Clippers, the Bulls seemed almost destined for a season-crippling losing streak. Going into Friday’s game against the Suns, an 0-7 trip appeared to be a very real possibility…and 0-4 at the very least. […]
