Chicago Bulls 100, Boston Celtics 99: Friday Night Fights
January 19th, 2013 at 12:42 AM
So, once again, the Chicago Bulls emerge victorious in overtime in a game they were really lucky to win.  This game, like the entire season, made no sense. Kirk Hinrich hit a jumper to tie the game with two seconds remaining in regulation, but only after Chicago very nearly turned the...

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 100, Boston Celtics 89: the Importance of Being Joakim
December 19th, 2012 at 2:28 AM
The Chicago Bulls cruised in what might have been their best-played game of the season Tuesday night, avenging an early season defeat at the hands of the Boston Celtics. The Bulls were paced primarily by the stellar play of Joakim Noah, who had his second career triple-double. 11 points, 13 rebounds,...

Chicago Bulls (13-10) V. Boston Celtics (12-11) Preview: Prepare for a Foray into Suckitude
December 18th, 2012 at 4:38 PM
In the wake of last night's horrific loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, this preview is simply going to be a list of things I'd rather do than watch tonight when the Chicago Bulls host the Boston Celtics at the United Center. 1. Argue about Marco Belinelli v. Kyle Korver for the...

Chicago Bulls (4-3) at Phoenix Suns (4-4) Preview: Turning up the Heat, Kinda
November 14th, 2012 at 2:00 PM
Coming off a tough loss at home to the Boston Celtics, the Chicago Bulls embark on their first real road trip of the season, their annual Circus trip. Their only prior road game came in the second game of the season, when they trekked all the way to Cleveland and...

Chicago Bulls (4-2) Vs. Boston Celtics (3-3) Preview: Teague Pass Alert
November 12th, 2012 at 1:15 PM
All right, Chicago. There's good news and bad news as the Chicago Bulls get set to take on the Boston Celtics. Good news: The Bulls are 4-2 and get to play a Celtics team at home that has looked discombobulated for much of the early season. Bad news: Who has two thumbs,...

Chicago Bulls Add Three-Time Slam Dunk Champion Nate Robinson: the Offseason from Hell Marches On
July 30th, 2012 at 10:35 PM
So, as the header on this post might suggest, the Chicago Bulls are going to sign point guard Nate Robinson, formerly of the Golden State Warriors, Oklahoma City Thunder, Boston Celtics and New York Knicks. Presumably, this will be a deal for the minimum, likely for just one year. There's...

Chicago Bulls Offseason Rumors: Luol Deng Trade Chatter Heating up, Boston Celtics Interested in Omer Asik
June 18th, 2012 at 12:25 PM
Ah, the NBA rumor mill. Out of all the major sports leagues, I'm pretty sure the NBA is untouched when it comes to speculative reports about possible trades/signings/whatever. And honestly, I love it. It's part of what makes writing about the NBA so fun. As long as you realize that...

June 15th, 2012 at 1:45 PM
Conan O'Brien has been doing shows in Chicago all week, and on Thursday night, he got a surprise visit from a very special guest.  During his opening monologue, Conan donned a Boston Celtics jacket and playfully taunted the jeering crowd. Enter Chicago Bulls Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen to thunderous applause....

Big Fourth Quarter from ‘Big Three’ Propels Miami Heat to Second Straight NBA Finals
June 10th, 2012 at 12:10 AM
Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics. Game 7. 73-73 heading into the fourth quarter. What else could you ask for with the Chicago Bulls out of the playoffs? Well, when it got down to winning time, the Heat's "Big Three" delivered one of their finest performances since so boldly joining forces in...

Miami Heat’s LeBron James Silences Critics for One Night
June 7th, 2012 at 11:35 PM
***PHOTO1*** I really had no idea what to expect in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat. My heart told me the Celtics would dispatch the Heat and advance to the NBA Finals to face the Oklahoma City Thunder, but my head simply...

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 2011-12 Player Review: Mike James
May 21st, 2012 at 10:24 AM
With Derrick Rose and C.J. Watson ravaged by injuries for a good portion of the season, the Chicago Bulls needed a little extra help at the point guard position. Enter 36-year-old journeyman Mike James (Who?!).  The Bulls signed and released the veteran point guard three times (had to avoid that luxury...

Chicago Bulls 2011-12 Player Review: Brian Scalabrine
May 16th, 2012 at 9:08 PM
Another year and another season full of "White Mamba" hijinks. Brian Scalabrine is still as loved as ever, although I must admit the novelty did wear off somewhat in his second season in Chicago. I'm certainly not going to blame Scalabrine for this, but rather the dopes who incessantly chant for...

Bulls 101 Round Table: How Far Can the Chicago Bulls Go Without Derrick Rose?
April 29th, 2012 at 8:06 PM
With Derrick Rose in the lineup, the Chicago Bulls were legitimate championship contenders. But now with the reigning MVP sidelined for the rest of the postseason with a torn ACL, just how far can the Bulls go? ***PHOTO1*** Caleb: 99 days out of 100, writing about the Bulls is something I love...

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...

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...

A Look at the Eastern Conference Playoff Picture
April 18th, 2012 at 11:33 AM
The NBA regular season is winding down (just about one week left!) and the playoff races in both conferences are heated. The Western Conference is pretty much mayhem, while there are certainly some good battles going on in the East as well. As much as I'd love to delve into...

Bulls 101 Round Table: How Concerning is Derrick Rose’s Health?
April 11th, 2012 at 10:22 PM
Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose missed yet another game with yet another injury on Tuesday against the New York Knicks. While Rose's latest injury does not appear serious and he should be able to go against the Miami Heat on Thursday, there remains some concern about whether he'll be able...
