NBA Playoff Odds: Miami Heat Still Lead the Way
May 15th, 2013 at 11:33 AM
The NBA season is moving into its latter stages now, with the regular season having finished a month ago, and the remaining teams now competing in the playoffs for the chance to reach the NBA Final. However although there is barely a month of action left this season, there is...

Chicago Bulls Can’t Hang with San Antonio Spurs, Fall 101-83
March 6th, 2013 at 11:02 PM
The Lone Star state was an apt setting for this latest Bulls' offensive horror show. A 101-83 loss to the San Antonio Spurs was largely brought on by the Bulls inability to make plays in the half court. With no stars capable of breaking defenders down off the dribble and scoring...

March 6th, 2013 at 4:07 PM
The Chicago Bulls enter Wednesday night’s nationally televised matchup against one of the elite teams in the league, the San Antonio Spurs.  Boasting the best record in the league at the moment at 47-14, the Spurs come in with one thing in common with the Bulls; both teams will be...

The Derrick Rose Dilemma: How Do You Solve a Problem Like an ACL?
November 13th, 2012 at 1:50 PM
The Chicago Bulls worry me right now, and it has nothing to do with Kirk Hinrich's injury or the lack of anything resembling consistent bench production. No, the source of my worry is one Derrick Martell Rose. Specifically, Derrick Martell Rose's left knee. ***PHOTO1*** With reports surfacing that Rose has started cutting in...

Chicago Bulls (3-1) Vs. Oklahoma City Thunder (2-2) Preview: Primetime
November 8th, 2012 at 12:52 PM
Raise your hand if you had the Chicago Bulls with a better record than the Oklahoma City Thunder, even through just four games. Now, anyone who just raised their hands, put them back down because you are lying. To be fair, the Bulls have yet to play a team that could reasonably...

Oklahoma City Thunder Advance to NBA Finals with 107-99 Game 6 Win Over San Antonio Spurs
June 7th, 2012 at 12:26 AM
***PHOTO1*** At some point during the 2010-11 NBA season, I felt compelled to hop on board the Oklahoma City Thunder bandwagon. Kevin Durant soon became my favorite non-Bull, while I also derived much enjoyment from watching Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Serge Ibaka develop as players. Things did not work out...

With Chicago Bulls Out, These Conference Finals All NBA Could Ask For
May 27th, 2012 at 6:54 PM
It was rather difficult for me to watch the second round series between the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers for two reasons. One, it just was not entertaining basketball. Sure there were some moments of brilliance, but for the most part, the brand of hoops was hideous. And second, I...

Chicago Bulls Coach Tom Thibodeau Places Second in Coach of Year Voting Behind Gregg Popovich
May 1st, 2012 at 9:43 PM
If there ever was a time for a repeat Coach of the Year winner, this was the time. Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau was looking to become the first coach in NBA history to win the award in back to back seasons, but he was beaten out by San Antonio Spurs...

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...

Chicago Bulls Take on Cleveland Cavaliers in Regular Season Finale; Number One Overall Seed Still on the Line
April 26th, 2012 at 12:06 PM
***PHOTO1*** Well. This is it. The last day of the regular season. It's certainly been quite a wild ride, but the Chicago Bulls have managed to be one of the most successful teams in the NBA despite fighting through truckloads of adversity. As it stands right now, the Bulls head...

Chicago Bulls Move One Step Closer to Number One Overall Seed with 92-87 Win Over Indiana Pacers
April 25th, 2012 at 11:02 PM
By grabbing a solid 92-87 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, the Chicago Bulls pretty much assured themselves the number one overall seed in the NBA playoffs. That could be clinched later in the night if the San Antonio Spurs lose to the Phoenix...

Chicago Bulls Square Off Against Indiana Pacers; How Much Will Starters Play?
April 25th, 2012 at 12:51 PM
Both the Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers are currently locked into their playoff seeds, with the Bulls at one and the Pacers at three. So in terms of Eastern Conference playoff seeding, Wednesday night's game in Indiana (6 p.m. CT on CSN Chicago) is essentially meaningless. Of course, the Bulls...

Chicago Bulls Clinch One Seed in Eastern Conference Thanks Boston Celtics Win
April 24th, 2012 at 10:02 PM
The Chicago Bulls clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference without even breaking a sweat on Tuesday night.  ***PHOTO1*** The Miami Heat's 78-66 loss to the Boston Celtics secured the one seed in the East for the idle Bulls. The Heat still had an outside chance at that top spot if...

Philadelphia 76ers Clinch Final Spot in East, San Antonio Spurs Earn Top Seed in West
April 24th, 2012 at 12:01 AM
The Chicago Bulls may be off for a couple of days, but there's still plenty of other riveting (and some not so riveting) NBA action going on as teams jockey for playoff positioning. The two outcomes from Monday night that were most relevant to the Bulls were the wins by...

Chicago Bulls Number One Seed Watch: Bulls Extend Lead in East by Full Game
April 10th, 2012 at 11:50 PM
Ah, what a fabulous night of basketball, even despite the fact that Derrick Rose would miss another game due to injury. After the buzzer sounded on the Chicago Bulls' 98-86 victory over the New York Knicks, their lead over the Miami Heat in the East grew to three games overall...

Chicago Bulls Number One Seed Watch: Miami Heat Gain Full Game
April 9th, 2012 at 6:47 AM
With the Chicago Bulls giving away a game at Madison Square Garden earlier in the day, the Miami Heat entered their Easter Sunday game against the Detroit Pistons knowing that they had a golden opportunity to gain a full game in the race for the top spot in the Eastern...

Chicago Bulls Number One Seed Watch: Miami Heat Trounced by Memphis Grizzlies
April 6th, 2012 at 9:58 PM
The Chicago Bulls are currently in a tight battle for the number one seed in the Eastern Conference with our not-so-good friends from South Beach, so I figured it would be a good idea to provide some updates (when possible) on those dastardly Miami Heat as we come down the...

Chicago Bulls Week in Review: Making Statements
March 5th, 2012 at 1:37 PM
The Chicago Bulls entered the All-Star break on a two-game winning streak, and in the week after, have extended that out to six in a row. The Bulls won four games this past week, with two of those wins being of the "big" variety. The Bulls made statements in road...

Chicago Bulls Make Statement in 96-89 Win Over San Antonio Spurs
March 1st, 2012 at 10:03 PM
Heading into Wednesday night's showdown against the San Antonio Spurs, the Chicago Bulls were looking to add a signature win to their résumé. The Bulls have one of the NBA's best records, but before Wednesday, they were lacking that real big win. Sure they had beaten both L.A. teams and...
