Three in a row: Bulls 98, Pistons 87

Wait, wait, wait. Let me try to wrap my head around this craziness: The Bulls — who arrived in Detroit a mere 2-11 on the road and hadn’t won away from home in six long weeks – strolled into the Palace of Auburn Hills, took early command of their game against the Pistons, and built a 20-point fourth quarter […]

Do the Bulls suffer when Thomas and Noah play together?

Well, as Henry explains, stat guru Wayne Winston theorizes that “a consistent theme of many bad NBA lineups is that they include two or more players who can’t shoot.” Can you think of any starting […]
