Chicago Bulls (22-15) at Boston Celtics (20-18) Preview: Yay for not Making Sense!
January 18th, 2013 at 2:10 PM
The 2012-13 Chicago Bulls are the single most perplexing team in history. I'm pretty sure I've said that before, but it bears repeating. Let's look at their last four games. Friday, January 11: Beat the New York Knicks in New York, 108-101. Saturday, January 12: Lose to the Phoenix Suns at the United...

Chicago Bulls (20-15) V. Atlanta Hawks (21-15) Preview: Birds of Pray
January 14th, 2013 at 11:15 AM
If you're scoring at home, you might have noticed that the Chicago Bulls have beaten the New York Knicks three times. In each case, they followed a win against the Knicks with a loss. They have also beaten the Knicks twice at Madison Square Garden this year. In the first instance,...

Phoenix Suns 97, Chicago Bulls 81: Black Hole Suns
January 13th, 2013 at 1:51 PM
I want desperately to begin with some piece of good news that will make the awfulness that was this game seem less awful. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, that good news does not exist. Three-fifths of the Phoenix Suns' starting five did essentially nothing last night. And yet the...

Chicago Bulls (20-14) V. Phoenix Suns (12-26) Preview: It’s Always Sunny, Unless It’s Not
January 12th, 2013 at 4:54 PM
Fresh off of the win against the New York Knicks last night, the Chicago Bulls return to the United Center to host the woeful Phoenix Suns. Normal logic dictates that a team a playoff team that has recently had big road wins against some of the leagues best teams (New...

Chicago Bulls 108, New York Knicks 101: Once More, with Feeling!
January 12th, 2013 at 1:26 PM
The Chicago Bulls beat the New York Knicks for the third consecutive time in a game that felt eerily similar to the second meeting, taking a huge lead and whittling it away in the final minutes. Similar to that second meeting with the Knicks (also in MSG), the Bulls jumped out...

Chicago Bulls (19-14) at New York Knicks (23-12) Preview: Two Games Does not a Trend Make
January 11th, 2013 at 1:53 PM
I wish, more than almost anything, that I understood this team. I wish I could figure out how a team can beat the Miami Heat on the road, blow out the Cleveland Cavaliers at home and then cough up a double-digit lead at home for the second time this year...

Milwaukee Bucks 104, Chicago Bulls 96: It’s Like Déjà Vu All Over Again
January 10th, 2013 at 12:25 PM
Based on this season, we can conclude that the Chicago Bulls simply cannot hold a double-digit lead at home against the Milwaukee Bucks. Like, it's against the rules or something. Facing former Bulls' head coach Jim Boylan for the first time since he took over for another former Bulls head coach,...

Chicago Bulls (15-11) V. Houston Rockets (14-12) Preview: Omer-ry Asik-mas
December 25th, 2012 at 12:01 AM
In the spirit of Christmas, I'll keep this short. Omer Asik is making his triumphant return to the United Center as a member of the Houston Rockets. Pretty much everything I wrote the last time the Chicago Bulls took on the Rockets still applies. However, the Rockets seem to have kicked...

Chicago Bulls 110 – New York Knicks 106: Game Grades
December 22nd, 2012 at 1:15 PM
Welcome to the first edition of Game Grades in a long, long while. Unfortunately over the past three months, I have been entirely too swamped with everything going on in my life and haven't even had time to keep up with the NBA. But I'm back (hopefully for good) which...

Chicago Bulls 110, New York Knicks 106: a Tale of Two Games
December 21st, 2012 at 10:10 PM
If you turned off the game after three quarters, you saw a fairly standard beatdown, with the Chicago Bulls dominating the New York Knicks on the road. If you stuck around for the fourth quarter, you saw things got really weird really fast. Things that happened in the fourth quarter: Carmelo Anthony received...

Chicago Bulls (14-10) at New York Knicks (19-6) Preview: Bright Lights, Big City
December 21st, 2012 at 4:13 PM
When last the Chicago Bulls saw the New York Knicks, they had just finished throttling a Carmelo Anthony-less Knicks team at home, winning 93-85 just two days after the Knicks had visited South Beach and beat down the Miami Heat by 20 points. Unfortunately, things are a little bit different this...

Chicago Bulls (13-9) at Memphis Grizzlies (15-6) Preview: into the Lion—er, Bear’s Den
December 17th, 2012 at 12:00 PM
All right. Good news and bad news time, as the Chicago Bulls head to Tennessee to take on the Memphis Grizzlies. The good news: Nate Robinson isn't starting anymore! The bad news: Kirk Hinrich is. We here at Bulls 101 have been very vocal in our criticism of Captain Kirk. He's not nearly...

Chicago Bulls (11-8) V. Los Angeles Clippers (14-6) Preview: the Second Time’s the Charm? Maybe?
December 11th, 2012 at 3:41 PM
Hopefully, you've all managed to forget what happened the last time the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Clippers faced off. But since it's important to the premise of this piece, we're going to remind you anyway. The Bulls traveled to Los Angeles back in November and got their asses kicked, losing...

Chicago Bulls 93, New York Knicks 85: Everything You Know is Wrong
December 8th, 2012 at 11:13 PM
Up is down. Black is white. Marco Belinelli might be good at basketball. The Chicago Bulls beat the New York Knicks while outshooting them on threes. In their fourth game in five nights, after they had to push to beat the Detroit Pistons on the road one night before, facing the...

Chicago Bulls (10-8) Vs New York Knicks (14-4) Preview: the Importance of Being Jimmy
December 8th, 2012 at 3:41 PM
The Chicago Bulls look to continue their improved play as of late as they welcome the East-leading New York Knicks to the United Center tonight at 8 Eastern. To pick up on what is the recurring thread this season (the Bulls lack of consistent scoring), I'd like to give credit to...

Bulls Offseason Roundup: Kyle Korver Officially Traded; Bulls Looking at OJ Mayo
July 16th, 2012 at 6:29 PM
Hello all, sorry not to update the site at all this weekend. We've been going through some changes here at Bulls 101, but that's all been resolved and it's time to get back to work. It's been a "busy" weekend for the Bulls, or at least it seems like it should...

Chicago Bulls 2011-12 Player Review: Jimmy Butler
May 22nd, 2012 at 11:49 PM
When Jimmy Butler was selected by the Chicago Bulls with the 30th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, I really had no idea what to think. I had not seen much of him at Marquette, so I was pretty unfamiliar with his game. After reading more about him, it was...

2011-12 NBA Playoff Preview: Time to Get BIG
April 28th, 2012 at 8:16 AM
Well, a long and tumultuous post-lockout season has finally drawn to a close. 66 games in 123 days for each team, which becomes 990 games in 123 days for the entire NBA. Now we've made it to the playoffs and things promise to get even more interesting than they already...

The NBA announced on Thursday morning that the Chicago Bulls will begin their playoff run on Saturday at the United Center. The time of Game 1 is still to be determined.  ***PHOTO1*** As for the opponent, that will be decided on Thursday night, and will either be the New York Knicks or...

Eastern Conference Playoff Seeding Watch: Final Two Spots Still up in the Air
April 25th, 2012 at 10:13 PM
***PHOTO1*** Heading into Wednesday night's NBA action, the final three spots in the Eastern Conference were still up in the air. That number is now down to two.  The Orlando Magic clinched the sixth seed with a 102-95 victory over the woeful Charlotte Bobcats. The Magic will face the Indiana Pacers...
