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.
What’s the point of playing 66 games with postseason determination if that doesn’t continue into the actual playoffs?
No need to be too concerned about the outcome, really, since one made free-throw at the end of regulation flips the script.
Russell Westbrook scored 27 points, Kevin Durant added 26 points and 10 rebounds and the Oklahoma City Thunder used a dominating third quarter to beat Chicago 92-78 on Sunday and move within a game of the Bulls in the race for the NBA’s best record.
Stacey King’s TV analysis of Bulls games is zooming over the water toward the ramp, as onlookers crowd the beachfront.
John Lucas scored all 13 of his points in the fourth quarter, Luol Deng had 17 points and 10 rebounds, and the Chicago Bulls rallied to beat the Toronto Raptors 94-82 on Wednesday night.
Derrick Rose scored 32 points, including the go-ahead jumper with 19.4 seconds left, and the Chicago Bulls closed with an 8-0 run to beat the New Orleans Hornets 99-95 Tuesday night.
Carlos Boozer scored 20 points, Derrick Rose and Luol Deng each added 16, and the Chicago Bulls beat the Milwaukee Bucks 110-91 on Wednesday night.
This may be simply because I watch so many Bulls games on DVR, but I’m itching to fast-forward to the playoffs. Push a button, blur it by, and get on with it.
LeBron James scored 35 points, while reigning NBA MVP Derrick Rose wasted two chances in the final 23 seconds and the Miami Heat escaped with a 97-93 win Sunday over the Chicago Bulls.
Ernest Hemingway wrote in The Sun Also Rises, “Each time he enters into the terrain of the bull he is in great danger.”
With the Bulls trailing the Pacers 92-90 with 23 seconds to go, the MVP of the league had the ball in his hands and a chance to tie the game.
Danny Granger scored 22 points Wednesday night and the Indiana Pacers became the first visiting team to win on Chicago’s home floor this season, beating the Bulls 95-90.
Luol Deng’s layup with 3.7 seconds to play lifted the Chicago Bulls to a 76-74 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night.
There will be plenty of success for the Bulls, but those pleasant surprises – the kind that made last season so special – will have to wait.
Richard Hamilton will start in tonight’s preseason game against the Indiana Pacers, head coach Tom Thibodeau said Tuesday.
The Bulls have signed free agent guard Richard “Rip” Hamilton, after he cleared waivers following his release from the Detroit Pistons.
The Chicago Bulls didn’t need to see Taj Gibson dunk on Dwyane Wade in the opener of the Eastern Conference finals or try to carry them late in Game 2.
Not only was it a win, it was a convincing win as the Bulls take Game 1 103-82 over the Heat.
For a team facing the league’s MVP, the team with the best record in the NBA and elimination from the playoffs, the Atlanta Hawks seem pretty confident that they can beat the Chicago Bulls in Game6 of this series.
