Recap: 10-6 Chicago Bulls Pick up Nice Win Over 4-9 Boston Celtics
November 28th, 2014 at 4:11 PM
Normally, when Derrick Rose scores 21 points in a game like he did in the Chicago Bulls 109-102 victory over the Boston Celtics, the story is how Rose looked like his old self. In this case, however, Joakim Noah is stealing some of that thunder. Noah played and looked probably...

Preview: 9-6 Chicago Bulls Against 4-8 Boston Celtics
November 28th, 2014 at 9:31 AM
We can’t start talking about the Chicago Bulls until we talk about the injury front first. As it stands, Derrick Rose (hamstring) and Joakim Noah (eye, knee) are listed as probable and are expected to play. Kirk Hinrich (chest) is also as probable, and Taj Gibson (ankle) has been ruled...

November 8th, 2014 at 9:31 PM
Down by 15 points at halftime, the effects of four games in five nights finally looked to have taken its toll on the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls lost to the Boston Celtics 106-101, which put an abrupt halt to Chicago's four game winning streak. The Celtics got clean looks all night...

Preview: (5-1) Chicago Bulls Versus (2-3) Boston Celtics
November 8th, 2014 at 1:43 PM
Teams the Chicago Bulls have beaten so far this season: the Knicks, Timberwolves, Magic, Bucks, and 76ers. They are all excellent candidates to miss the playoffs, and you could confidently place tonight's opponent, the Boston Celtics, in that same category as well. But aside from the opening night dismantling of...

Recap: Chicago Bulls Improve to 5-1, Defeat Winless Philadelphia 76ers
November 7th, 2014 at 8:41 PM
It was a rotten, ugly basketball game to watch, but a win is a win and now would be an appropriate time to remind you: good teams like the now 5-1 Chicago Bulls are supposed to beat bad teams like the 0-6 Philadelphia 76ers. Coming out of Philly with a...

After being reported about a month ago by Orlando Magic insider Mary Stevens, E’Twaun Moore’s representation agency, Priority Sports, tweeted out confirmation that their client had indeed signed a two-year contract with the Chicago Bulls. ***PHOTO1*** Shams Charania of RealGM was the first to report that Moore’s deal is only 50 percent...

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...

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.

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...
