Game Recap: Spurs 101, Bulls 83

Looking back at this game, it’s hard to figure out what was worse: Chicago’s defense or offense. The Spurs — who are without the services of All-Star point guard Tony Parker — connected on eight of their 14 three-point attempts (57 percent), converted better than 54 percent of their field goal attempts overall, and scored […]

Game Recap: Spurs 103, Bulls 89

Tom Thibodeau’s famous mantra — “More than enough to win” — turned out to be true last night. Only it was true of the Spurs instead of the Bulls. San Antonio was without the services of Manu Ginobili (sore left hamstring), Tim Duncan (sprained left knee/sprained right ankle) and Tony Parker (swollen knee). So the […]

Game 54 Recap: Bull 109, Spurs 99

It wasn’t exactly Babe Ruth calling his shot in Game 3 of the 1932 World Series, but Rose said up front that this was an important game, a measuring stick that would show how good the Bulls really were. Or weren’t. To me, that was Derrick’s way of saying: “Look out. I’m coming.” Well, he […]

Circus Trip: Spurs 103, Bulls 94

With 2:53 left in the second quarter, Kyle Korver and Omer Asik hooked up on a sweet pick and roll play that looked like something out of an instructional video. Korver delivered a perfect pass, Asik dunked the ball with authori-tah, and the Bulls built a nearly inconceivable 45-28 lead. Everything was clicking. The Bulls starters had stood up to […]

Circus Trip: Bulls-Spurs Preview

This is going to be a rough one. The Spurs (8-1) have one of the best records in the league. They rank 2nd in PPG (108.9), 3rd in Offensive Rating (111.8), 6th in Pace (96.3) and 8th in Defensive Rating (103.8). That said, the record could be mildly deceiving. Their one loss was to the […]

There’s no place like road: Bulls 98, Spurs 93

Well, I guess it’s safe to say that swapping Aaron Gray for Devin Brown hasn’t upset team chemistry. All joking aside…can you believe what we’re seeing? Three straight games in which the Bulls have hit better than 50 percent of their field goals. Not bad for a team that can’t shoot. Three straight wins on the road […]
