Chicago Bulls Fall to a Kyrie Irving-less Cleveland Cavaliers Team 101-98
February 26th, 2013 at 11:58 PM
It was supposed to be an easier night for the Chicago Bulls. "Supposed to be" being the key words. After facing a humiliating loss against the Oklahoma City Thunder just days earlier, the Bulls came into tonight's home game against the Kyrie Irving-less Cleveland Cavaliers looking for a bounce back...

Chicago Bulls 118, Cleveland Cavaliers 92: Offensive Pontifex
January 7th, 2013 at 10:16 PM
The Chicago Bulls start off their 2013 home schedule with a third straight housing of the hapless Cleveland Cavaliers Monday night, despite being down by 10 late in the second quarter. After getting routinely torched in the opening quarter, the Bulls defense tightened up enough to allow their suddenly resurgent bench...

Chicago Bulls 95, Cleveland Cavaliers 85: Answering the Bell-inelli
December 6th, 2012 at 1:16 PM
As always, sincere apologies for the headline and the pun therein. After an eyesore of a performance against the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday, the Chicago Bulls bounced back nicely with a 10-point win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland. All five members of the starting lineup somehow scored in double-figures, and...

Indiana Pacers 80, Chicago Bulls 76: Oh God There’s So Much Blood
December 4th, 2012 at 10:15 PM
We're going to keep this short for a few reasons. First, that game was horrible and we would do well to never mention it ever again. Second, this is the last week of the semester here at MSU and I'm getting slammed with work from my various classes. So I...

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 115, Cleveland Cavaliers 86: Wait, What Just Happened Here?
November 2nd, 2012 at 10:55 PM
Hey, so you know how the Bulls were supposed to win games without Derrick Rose by grinding them out defensively? Every game was going to be 85-81? Ringing any bells? Yeah, well the Bulls aren't buying it. Going on the road to face the Cleveland Cavaliers should have been a close game....

Chicago Bulls (1-0) at Cleveland Cavaliers (1-0) Preview: the Cleveland Show
November 2nd, 2012 at 12:02 PM
Once, this game would have been a scintillating matchup of elite, young point guards. Kyrie Irving facing off with Derrick Rose is appointment viewing under almost any circumstances. And yet, here we are. Kyrie is still around. He scored 29 points in the Cleveland Cavaliers' win over the Washington WIzards. But, as...

Chicago Bulls 115, Cleveland Cavaliers 86: Game Grades
November 2nd, 2012 at 11:00 AM
Last night the Chicago Bulls traveled to Cleveland to take on Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland Cavaliers for their first road game of the season. Going into the game expectations were fairly low for both sides but things changed fairly quickly. From the tip off, the Bulls were in solid...

Cleveland Cavaliers 86, Chicago Bulls 83: Bench Gets Popped in Champaign
October 12th, 2012 at 11:30 PM
As always, let me remind you that the preseason doesn't matter. That said, let's look at the takeaways from tonight's game. 1) Hot Tub Kirk Machine 2: Kirk Harder I'm seriously beginning to wonder if the Bulls, rather than signing 2012 Kirk Hinrich, killed him and went back to 2007 to get...

Cleveland Cavaliers at Chicago Bulls Preview: Please Tip Dion Waiters
October 12th, 2012 at 7:00 AM
The Bulls will host the Cleveland Cavaliers in their second preseason game of the year. In theory this would be a great matchup of young point guards, but with Derrick Rose obviously still out, Kyrie Irving is left to face off with...Kirk Hinrich. Sigh. To be perfectly honest, I'm not totally sure...

Chicago Bulls Talk to Harrison Barnes at NBA Draft Combine: Moves Coming?
June 9th, 2012 at 12:07 AM
All right, here's the deal. K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune filed a report yesterday stating that the Chicago Bulls had met with North Carolina wing Harrison Barnes at the NBA Draft Combine. Barnes is a surefire top-10 pick, meaning the Bulls would have to move way up in the...

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 Clinch Number One Overall Seed; Set to Face Philadelphia 76ers in First Round of Playoffs
April 26th, 2012 at 11:32 PM
I'm not going to lie, once I saw that Derrick Rose, Luol Deng and Kyle Korver were not playing due to "maintenance" reasons, my interest level in the Chicago Bulls' regular season finale against the Cleveland Cavaliers waned immensely. It was not that high to begin with, considering the Cavs...

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

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...

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 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 Demolish Depleted Cleveland Cavaliers 112-91
March 3rd, 2012 at 8:52 AM
The Chicago Bulls were already heavy favorites heading into the matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night, and when the news broke that Kyrie Irving would not play, it was pretty much game over even before tip. After all, the Cavs would not have the services of two of...

Chicago Bulls (29-8) at Cleveland Cavaliers (13-20) Preview
March 2nd, 2012 at 12:06 PM
***PHOTO1*** While ESPN and other media outlets continue to shower the public with Jeremy Lin love, Cleveland Cavaliers stud rookie point guard Kyrie Irving seems to be flying under the radar. Sure, most people see Irving as the prohibitive favorite for Rookie of the Year, but the general hype level...
