Here is Nick Shepkowski’s notebook from Thursday’s Bulls-Thunder game.
After missing the team’s final exhibition game Friday with a sore groin, Kirk Hinrich will start in the Bulls season opener against the Kings on Wednesday night.
It’s not easy to watch a team in the process of waiting.
Carlos Boozer had 24 points, 12 rebounds and five assists to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 94-89 preseason victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night.
Nate Robinson scored 24 points and Richard Hamilton added 23 to lead the Chicago Bulls in a 100-94 preseason victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night.
The Bulls announced Monday the team has signed free-agent guard Kirk Hinrich.
Pending a physical, the Bulls traded Kyle Korver to the Atlanta Hawks Friday.
Some say that uncertainty regarding Noah’s badly-sprained ankle could be influencing the desire to keep Asik, which makes no sense in any larger context.
Hinrich is willing to fit the role he has held a few times in the past of not just being a solid guard on the court but also someone whose presence can help the Bulls in other ways.
Free-agent guard Kirk Hinrich reportedly has agreed to return to the Chicago Bulls, two years after he was traded away to the Washington Wizards.
Owning a late first-round pick in the NBA draft is supposed to be a sign of success. Unless it’s due to a prescient trade, high picks are for last year’s losers.
Derrick Rose scored 33 points to lead the Chicago Bulls past the Atlanta Hawks in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series.
In a back and forth battle for most of the night, the Atlanta Hawks pulled away towards the end and went on to beat the Chicago Bulls.
Derrick Rose is expected to receive the NBA’s Most Valuable Player Award within a few days. The third-year point guard averaged 25 points per game in the regular season, and an even more impressive 27.6 PPG in the playoffs.
There was a crazy report this morning from the Bulls official twitter site that Joakim Noah would not play tonight. That report proved to be erroneous and was quickly changed. So Noah will play this evening and it looks like Carlos Boozer will, as well.
After a physically demanding first round, Derrick Rose didn’t expect much to change when he found out that the Chicago Bulls would be taking on the Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Jeff Teague will have to do his best against the NBA’s expected MVP, the guy who led the Chicago Bulls to more wins than any other team.
No Bulls team had ever won back-to-back games by a total of 73 points, until yesterday. It had been fifteen years since they had won consecutive games by more than 30 apiece.
Coming into the season many thought that Boston and Miami would be at the top of the Eastern Conference, but few expected the Chicago Bulls to be right with the Celtics and Heat.
It should make you feel better to know that John Paxson and Gar Forman are watching the same games we are.
