The complete schedules for the first round of the NBA Playoffs won’t be released until Wednesday night, but the Chicago Bulls have announced that their opening game will take place on Saturday (4/16) at 12 noon (CST).
The Chicago Bulls defeated the New York Knicks on Tuesday night to bring their regular season record to 61-20.
If there is one thing I hate about the playoffs–be it the NBA, NFL, or NHL–it is when a team with a losing record makes it in, while a team from the opposite conference–with a winning record–has to stay home.
The Chicago Bulls have had a great season so far, they’ve reached the 60-win mark, clinched the Eastern Conference’s No. 1 seed and have the frontrunner for the league’s MVP award.
Not only did the Bulls all but wrap up the top seed in the Eastern Conference by dominating the Celtics on Thursday night, they let Boston know that they aren’t intimidated and won’t be pushed around by the bullies of the East.
The Chicago Bulls outplayed the Boston Celtics and walked away with a 16-point win on Thursday night, but that’s all it was for this Bulls team, a single win.
Derrick Rose is just a few games away from officially leading the Chicago Bulls to the best record in the Eastern Conference. And according to one NBA superstar, the MVP race can officially end and Rose can take his trophy.
Joakim Noah and the Chicago Bulls have a pretty good idea what to expect when the Boston Celtics visit the United Center on Thursday Night.
The Chicago Bulls have five games remaining before the playoffs, so it’s probably a good time for them to start getting their rotation in line for the postseason.
The Chicago Bulls could get a boost from the return of Joakim Noah to the lineup, despite winning all three games that the center missed.
After missing three games with a sprained right ankle, Chicago Bulls’ center Joakim Noah returned to practice on Monday, and expects to play on Tuesday.
Derrick Rose had 36 points and 10 assists, and the Chicago Bulls took another step toward the top seed in the Eastern Conference with their 15th win in 17 games, hanging on to beat the short-handed Toronto Raptors 113-106 on Saturday night.
Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau has been named the Eastern Conference Coach of the Month, for the month of March.
Once upon a time Michael Jordan tormented the Detroit Pistons. Now it seems as if that responsibility has fallen into the hands of Derrick Rose, and he hasn’t skipped a beat.
Most people expected the Chicago Bulls to be an improved team from last season, the additions of Carlos Boozer, Kyle Korver and the rest made sure of that. But almost no one expected them to be this good.
The Chicago Bulls are leading the way in the Eastern Conference. But with the regular season drawing to a close their intensity over the last two games has been admittedly lacking early on.
The Chicago Bulls are the top team in the Eastern Conference, and have a two-game lead over the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat. But that status wasn’t able to get them past the 38-36 Philadelphia 76ers.
Despite 31 points from Derrick Rose, the Chicago Bulls lost to the Philadelphia 76ers 97-85, it was only their fifth loss at the United Center all season.
Try as you may to get the Bulls players to talk about the upcoming playoffs but it’s a useless subject, for now. They refuse to look ahead and remain focused on the subject at hand which tonight is the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Chicago Bulls and the Boston Celtics are battling for the Eastern Conference’s top seed, and the home court advantage that comes with it.
