February 12th, 2015 at 10:25 PM
For as tumultuous a first half of the season as the Chicago Bulls have had, heading into the All-Star break on a four-game win streak and sitting in third place in the Eastern Conference ain’t too bad. Tonight, the Bulls took care of business against the Cleveland Cavaliers, winning convincingly...

The NBA has only one game on the docket tonight, but it fortunately happens to be a really good one. The Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers typically demand the attention of the basketball world, and tonight they’re getting our complete and undivided. There are plenty of storylines to a Bulls-Cavs matchup,...

Recap: 33-20 Chicago Bulls Wax 18-33 Sacramento Kings

Wouldn’t you know it, even in a game where the Chicago Bulls thoroughly outplayed the Sacramento Kings, playing just about as well as they possibly could – there’s still something to worry about. We’ll get to that part momentarily, because first: the good stuff. Chicago defeated Sacramento 104-86, winning in just...

February 10th, 2015 at 2:37 PM
The Sacramento Kings had lost 11 out of 12 games before a DeMarcus Cousins buzzer beater lifted them over the Phoenix Suns a couple of nights ago. Other than that, there hasn't been much to cheer about lately. Nobody is quite sure what is going on with the coaching situation...

Recap: 32-20 Chicago Bulls Escape with Win Over 16-38 Orlando Magic
February 8th, 2015 at 8:06 PM
With the way things have gone for the Chicago Bulls over the past month or so, they’ll take any win they can get. Even the ones that are pretty much handed to them, like tonight’s 98-97 victory over the Orlando Magic. Orlando committed three turnovers in the final 1:14 of...

Tonight’s contest against the Orlando Magic marks the second to last time the Chicago Bulls will play on the road in the month of February. Tonight, Chicago wraps up a six-game, two-week long road trip which started on the Pacific Ocean, and now ends on the Atlantic. If Chicago were...

Recap: 31-20 Chicago Bulls Blow Out 27-24 New Orleans Pelicans
February 7th, 2015 at 8:45 PM
Want to know how important Anthony Davis is to the New Orleans Pelicans? Well, the Pelicans, while they certainly did not play great in the first half, were down only nine points at the break. In the second half, however, Anthony Davis did not play after taking a very hard...

Chicago Bulls: Doug McDermott Could Be Heading to the D-League
February 7th, 2015 at 3:01 PM
NBA rookies are a lot like second-string quarterbacks in Chicago – usually, they’re the most popular guy in town. There’s a reason for this, and really it's quite simple: Chicago – as a sports town – prefers the unknown because normally, we’re sick and tired of being sick and tired...

February 7th, 2015 at 10:36 AM
The New Orleans Pelicans are coming off one of the best wins an NBA team has had all season. Last night, the Pelicans defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder in a game that carried playoff magnitude, featured incredible performances and gave perhaps the best finish one could imagine. Anthony Davis, New...

Recap: 30-20 Chicago Bulls Lose to 34-15 Houston Rockets
February 4th, 2015 at 10:01 PM
Can’t play much worse than the Chicago Bulls did tonight, especially after having four days of rest and preparation. That time off, which was supposed to do the Bulls wonders, ended up being practically meaningless as the Houston Rockets ran them out of the gym, winning by a score of...

February 4th, 2015 at 12:24 PM
Gosh, remember the last time the Bulls played the Houston Rockets? Do you remember how awesome it felt when the Bulls defiantly defeated a legit title contender from the Western Conference? We certainly felt awesome. Here’s what we wrote following that win on Jan. 5: “Folks, the Bulls might be in...

Preview: 30-18 Chicago Bulls and 27-20 Phoenix Suns
January 30th, 2015 at 9:12 AM
What we have here is an interesting matchup between two pretty fun teams. The Phoenix Suns are an extremely young team that’s hungry and fighting for a playoff spot in the vaunted Western Conference. The Chicago Bulls – who by this point you’re probably familiar enough with – but regardless,...

Recap: 30-18 Chicago Bulls Dropped in Double OT to 13-34 Los Angeles Lakers
January 30th, 2015 at 1:14 AM
There’s no rational, justifiable, or sane way to explain the Chicago Bulls. They just beat the best team in basketball in an impossibly difficult place to play without two critically important players on Tuesday. So, of course, tonight they drop a double overtime gauntlet of a game to the Los...

Recap: 30-17 Bulls Pull Off Improbable Overtime Win Against 36-7 Golden State Warriors
January 28th, 2015 at 11:25 AM
Wow, where do we even begin? A 113-111 overtime game between two respectable teams usually provides plenty of entertainment, but this particular game was on whole other level. First consider the Chicago Bulls were without two starters in Jimmy Butler (illness) and Mike Dunleavy (ankle). Then cononsider that before tonight, the Golden...

Perhaps, you’ve heard: these Golden State Warriors are an absolute force to be reckoned with. They’re 36-6, and with such an impressive record comes impressive juxtaposition. Like, say, the 95-96 Chicago Bulls. Now, before you go thinking we’re crazy for saying this, let’s just look at a couple of similarities...

Recap: 29-17 Chicago Bulls and 20-24 Miami Heat
January 25th, 2015 at 3:18 PM
It’s not everyday that you can say a player that most people had never heard of before, and nonetheless was a free agent when the season began, completely dominated a basketball game. That is no hyperbole, either. Hassan Whiteside of the Miami Heat man-handled and thoroughly controlled the paint in...

January 25th, 2015 at 10:22 AM
Occasionally, there’ll be a story that is bigger than the game itself. Today’s Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls’ contest falls under that category as it’ll be the first time former Bull Luol Deng returns to play in front of Chicago's home crowd as a visitor. Deng, 29, has played against...

Recap: 29-16 Chicago Bulls Sneak Past 30-14 Dallas Mavericks
January 23rd, 2015 at 10:06 PM
All things considered, beating the Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks on back-to-back nights is extremely impressive. At the very least, it seems as though the Chicago Bulls aren’t broken anymore. Tonight’s 102-98 victory, in the grand scheme of things, can serve as a reminder of how good the Bulls can...

We’re not here to talk about what happened the last time these two teams played. Enough time has passed, blood pressure levels have dropped, and we can collectively move on, right? Never mind that gritty, irreplaceable veteran leadership provided by Kirk Hinrich resulted in quite possibly the dumbest foul of...
