Game #66 Preview: Chicago Bulls vs Sacramento Kings

With every emphatic and emotional home win comes the potential for a let-down game in the follow-up. It happened with the let-down against San Antonio – though that was against a good team – and it could happen again tonight against the lowly Sacramento Kings following Thursday’s big win against Houston. The Kings are destined […]

Welcome to Rock Bottom, Population: Bulls

I certainly didn’t see this one coming. If you’d told me before the season started that this Bulls team — even without Derrick Rose and beset by several other injuries to key personnel — would get blown out by 42 points by a Sacramento Kings team that was 20 games below .500 and playing without […]

Game Recap: Bulls 93, Kings 87

It’s always good to open the season with a win. But, as is usually the case, this game had plenty to like and dislike. Things to like: I loved the productivity of Joakim Noah (23 points, 10 rebounds, 5 steals, 3 assists, 3 blocks), Carlos Boozer (18 points, 8 boards, 2 assists, 1 steal, 1 […]

Game Recap: Bulls 132, Kings 92

Last season, the Bulls lived through a waking nightmare. With 8:49 left in the third quarter of a home game against the Kings, John Salmons — remember him? — drilled an 11-footer to help the Bulls go up 79-44. For those who enjoy simple math, that represented a 35-point lead with less than 21 minutes to go. Completely and utterly insurmountable, right? Sadly, […]

Circus Trip: Bulls 96, Kings 85

Last night, the Bulls beat the Kings. For the record, the Kings have lost 10 of their last 11 games and were clobbered 100-82 by the Clippers during their last outing. By beating a bad team, Chicago wrapped up their seven-game circus road trip with a 4-3 record, a mere one game over .500. In many ways, what they accomplished doesn’t seem like a […]

Say goodbye to Captain Kirk and the 17th pick…say hello to cap space

After being one-upped in the all-important “Cap Space Race” by the Miami Heat — who created extra financial flexibility by trading Daequan Cook and their first round pick in last night’s draft — the Bulls countered by reportedly agreeing to send Kirk Hinrich and the 17th pick to the Washington Wizards for (you guessed it!) extra financial […]
