Chicago Bulls Firing on All Cylinders at the Break
February 13th, 2015 at 10:50 AM
All eyes were on the Chicago Bulls Thursday night as they faced off against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the final game before the All-Star break. No other games were scheduled for Thursday so the entire league got a chance to see how far Derrick Rose had progressed...

Preview: 29-17 Chicago Bulls and 36-6 Golden State Warriors
January 27th, 2015 at 10:56 AM
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: 27-15 Chicago Bulls Dropped by 33-8 Atlanta Hawks
January 17th, 2015 at 9:54 PM
Tonight’s 107-99 victory for the Atlanta Hawks was a statement win. In many ways, it’s what Atlanta has done leading up to tonight’s contest against the Chicago Bulls that makes it such. For example, the Hawks just completed a four-games-in-five-nights stretch, all of which were on the road, and won...

We’ve said it loud and we’ve said it often here at Bulls101: the Atlanta Hawks are for real. Currently, the Hawks are a full five games ahead of the second place team (Washington) in the Eastern Conference, and they also own the second highest winning percentage in the NBA. Things...

***VIDEO1*** The Chicago Bulls aren’t in first place in the Eastern Conference – that honor belongs to the genuinely good Atlanta Hawks – but oddsmakers believe that’ll be different come June. For the first time all season, the Cleveland Cavaliers – ho boy, what a mess – are not the...

Recap: 15-9 Chicago Bulls Dropped by 17-7 Atlanta Hawks
December 15th, 2014 at 9:19 PM
The Atlanta Hawks took advantage of a poor shooting night from the Chicago Bulls to pick up a nice-looking 93-86 win. The Bulls played a day late and a dollar short, as they just couldn’t surmount the lead Atlanta held basically the entire game. The Hawks have now won 10...

Preview: East Powers 15-8 Chicago Bulls and 16-7 Atlanta Hawks Square Off
December 15th, 2014 at 1:41 PM
The Atlanta Hawks aren’t a fluke; they’re the real deal. This is a good basketball team that knows its identity, is comfortable in who they are, and plays exactly within themselves. A team that knows itself is a testament to coaching, and Mike Budenholzer deserves credit for fitting personnel with...

VIDEO: Actor Mark Wahlberg Gives Shoutout to His Pal Jimmy Butler
October 17th, 2014 at 1:18 PM
It appears that Jimmy Butler really is having the greatest preseason in the history of professional basketball. Hitting a game winning three-pointer Thursday night against the Atlanta Hawks as time expired to cap off a sensational 20-point fourth quarter and a 29-point effort altogether usually puts a guy in good...

Jimmy Butler Hits Game Winning Three, Finishes with 29 Points as Bulls Win 85-84
October 16th, 2014 at 9:46 PM
An uncharacteristically bad defensive showing and an all-too-familiar difficulty scoring points resulted in one ugly basketball game in Chicago on Thursday night for the Chicago Bulls. That is, until Jimmy Butler took over in the fourth quarter. The Atlanta Hawks led otherwise convincingly throughout the entire game, but Butler hit...

Luol Deng Indirectly Involved in Atlanta Hawks Organizational Racism, Ownership Ordeal
September 8th, 2014 at 11:27 AM
In the latest twist involving Atlanta Hawks owner Bruce Levenson and an alleged self-reported racist email (full text of the email can be found, here) from 2012 citing demographic disparities (essentially: too few rich white folk) in Atlanta Hawks attendance rates and lack of African-American fan spending on team store...

April 17th, 2013 at 6:06 PM
After the Atlanta Hawks lost to the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night, the Bulls returned to the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference as they hold the tie-break from the season series with Hawks. The Chicago Bulls will now finish out the regular season at home against the luckless Washington Wizards...

Game Recap: Chicago Bulls Sweep the Orlando Magic with a 102-84 Win
April 16th, 2013 at 9:00 AM
The Chicago Bulls took on the Orlando Magic yesterday evening looking to sweep the league's team with the second worst record in the league. While the three meetings earlier in the season were all determined within the final minutes of the game this game was all but done by the...

Chicago Bulls Beat Atlanta Hawks Even Without Their Four Starters
February 2nd, 2013 at 9:01 PM
Coming into this game, there's no way the Chicago Bulls couldn't embarrass the Atlanta Hawks any more than they did the last time these two teams met. In the second night of back -to-back road games, the Bulls came out and beat the Hawks 93 to 76 WITHOUT Joakim Noah, Carlos...

Chicago Bulls 97, Atlanta Hawks 58: Yes, You Read That Right
January 15th, 2013 at 8:33 AM
The Atlanta Hawks scored 5 points in the second quarter. That is not a typo. The Chicago Bulls beat the ever-loving crap out of the Hawks last night at the United Center. And what's funny is that they did not play well while doing so. They shot terribly, but the Hawks...

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,...

Houston Rockets Beat Chicago Bulls Senseless on Christmas Day
December 25th, 2012 at 9:16 PM
Well, this makes two consecutive games in which I am writing the recap before the end of the game. After the Chicago Bulls came up with a pair of excellent wins over the Boston Celtics and New York Knicks, they immediately followed that with a pair of horrific losses to...

Atlanta Hawks 92, Chicago Bulls 75: Game Grades
December 23rd, 2012 at 12:00 PM
After putting up an excellent performance against the New York Knicks on Friday night, the Chicago Bulls finished off their back to back roadtrip in Atlanta as they took on the Atlanta Hawks. The game started off well for Chicago. They made their shots, moved the ball around well, and...

Atlanta Hawks 92, Chicago Bulls 75: Teague Versus Teague
December 22nd, 2012 at 8:04 PM
Coming off an impressive win over the East-leading New York Knicks in New York City, it wasn't inherently unreasonable to expect the Chicago Bulls to at least be competitive as they took on the Atlanta Hawks. And they were, for a quarter. Then the second and third quarters happened. The Bulls got...

Chicago Bulls (15-10) at Atlanta Hawks (15-9): It’s Like Looking in a Mirror
December 22nd, 2012 at 5:29 PM
A matchup of two eerily similar Eastern Conference "contenders" sees the return of Kyle Korver into our lives at 7 PM. These two teams are separated by a mere game in the Eastern Conference standings, and both are succeeding despite offseason rebuilding projects. The Hawks finally parted ways with Joe Johnson...

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...
