Game 38 Recap: Bobcats 96, Bulls 91

“We’ve got to do a better job of being a 48-minute team.” That was what Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said after his team beat the Celtics last Saturday night. In fact, it’s a variation of what he’s been saying all season. And it was like some kind of dark prophesy, as the Pistons built a […]

Stayin’ alive: Bulls 96, Bobcats 88

The good news: The Bulls pulled out a scrappy home win over the Charlotte Bobcats, thus living to fight another day. For a possible playoff spot, that is. The bad news: The Toronto Raptors pulled out a scrappy win of their own, a 128-123 overtime win over the 76ers in Philadelphia. Despite leading by as many […]

Taj Gibson is hurting

Bulls fans who want to see Tyrus Thomas back in the starting lineup may get their wish pretty soon…but not necessarily on his own merits. Taj Gibson is suffering from a case of plantar fasciitis. And here we all thought the Bulls were finally healthy. After Taj sat out of practice yesterday, Vinny Del Negro said: […]

Tyrus Thomas: Still not starting

It’s the question that seemingly cannot be answered: What, exactly, should the Bulls do with Tyrus Thomas? Start him or bring him in off the bench? Keep him or trade him? Let him shoot jump shots or put electrodes in his jersey that will give him a terrible shock any time he attempts a field goal […]
