A crazy regular season ends with a win

In many ways — and perhaps fittingly — last night’s regular-season finale seemed to epitomize the roller coaster ride the Bulls have been on all season. With Derrick Rose’s season officially a wash  (even if no official announcement to that effect has been made), the Bulls had a chance to secure the fifth seed in […]

Dead Men Walking: Wizards 90, Bulls 86

Remember back in late January? Early February? Things were looking up for the Bulls. They weren’t just thinking about making the playoffs. They were taking aim at the second or third seed in the Eastern Conference. Luol Deng and Joakim Noah were named to the All-Star team. An early March return by Derrick Rose looked […]

Game Recap: Bulls 87, Wizards 77

The Bulls must have been glad to get a win after back-to-back blowout losses to the Hawks and Rockets… …but they likely would have liked to have played better. The Wizards are a league-worst 4-24 this season. According to Basketball-Reference, they rank 30th in PPG (88.8), Field Goal Percentage (40.6), Effective Field Goal Percentage (44.3) […]

Takin’ the Lead: Bulls 98, Wizards 79

How high have the expectations gotten for these Bulls? On a night when the Bulls won by 19 points and took over first place in the Eastern Conference despite missing their second and third-best players — Carlos Boozer (sprained ankle) and Joakim Noah (flu-like symptoms) both sat this one out — there was an overwhelming sense that they should […]

Game 58 Recap: Bulls 105, Wizards 77

Now this is more like it. Don’t get me wrong. I’m thrilled that the Bulls have racked up wins against elite teams like the Celtics, Heat, Lakers, Mavericks and Spurs. But there are significant statistical reasons to suspect that blowing out bad teams matters. Of course, this fact was brought up in defense of the Miami […]

Game 27 Recap: Bulls 87, Wizards 80

The second of back-t0-back games is always an adventure. One night after treating the Philadelphia 76ers to a near-historic butt-kicking, the Bulls faced the Wizards in Washington. The Wizards — minus rookie phenom John Wall — are not a very good team. For example: They rank only 25th in Offensive Rating. Of course, that didn’t stop them […]
