April 2nd, 2013 at 7:04 PM
Despite the end of the NBA regular season rapidly approaching a myriad of questions swirl around the Chicago Bulls. What's going on with Derrick Rose? Will he return at all and when? What playoff positioning does Chicago end with and how well will they do in the playoffs? A few...

Chicago Bulls (36-31) Vs Indiana Pacers (43-26) Preview: Fighting Off the Brooms
March 23rd, 2013 at 4:54 PM
With only 15 games left in the regular season. The Chicago Bulls' NBA season is starting to finish rounding the corner and is just about on the home stretch. Provided the Bulls don't lose out and the Philadelphia 76ers don't win out, Chicago essentially has a playoff spot locked up....

Chicago Bulls (34-25) Vs Indiana Pacers (37-22) Game Preview
March 3rd, 2013 at 4:44 PM
The Chicago Bulls (34-25) travel to Indiana to take on a surging Indiana Pacers team (37-22), who has won six out of their last 7.  Chicago will have to bring their A-game on offense because the Pacers’ defense ranks in the top five in the league.  The potential playoff preview,...

February 4th, 2013 at 10:00 AM
The two top teams in the Central Division will clash today as the Chicago Bulls travel to Indiana to take on the Pacers. This game has been on Chicago's schedule for a while now as this game was originally set to be played back on December 26th. Due to severe...

It’s About Time: Chicago Bulls 116 – Indiana Pacers 89
April 27th, 2011 at 5:03 PM
It took until Game 5, but the Bulls finally looked like the team that had the best overall record in the NBA during the regular season.  As Tom Petty says, “the waiting is the hardest part,” and we as Bulls fans were getting tired of waiting for the “real” Bulls...

Finish Them: Indiana Pacers at Chicago Bulls Game 5 Preview
April 26th, 2011 at 4:51 PM
The obvious storyline heading into Game 5 at the United Center is the health of Derrick Rose.  With Rose ailing and the rest of the Bulls sucking, the Pacers might be gaining a little confidence.  They can even take inspiration from the Bulls roommates at the Madhouse on Madison.  The...

Hurtin’: Indiana Pacers 89 – Chicago Bulls 84
April 24th, 2011 at 4:56 PM
I didn’t have the pleasure (OK, that’s the wrong word) of watching the majority of the Game 4 Chicago Bulls debacle.  I was enjoying the sun from the Wrigley Field bleachers, but I made sure to keep close tabs on the goings on at Conseco Fieldhouse.  As I followed the...

Break out the Brooms: Chicago Bulls at Indiana Pacers Game 4 Preview
April 22nd, 2011 at 4:31 PM
Despite playing like garbage for the majority of this series, the Chicago Bulls can close out this pest of a Indiana Pacers squad Saturday at Conseco Fieldhouse. It would be really to get this one over with, as the Bulls don’t want to give the Pacers any confidence. I’m sure...

Rough and Tumble: Chicago Bulls 88 – Indiana Pacers 84
April 21st, 2011 at 5:18 PM
The Indiana Pacers keep knocking Derrick Rose down.  But no matter how hard they hit him, he gets back up every time. Rose was battered, beaten, and harassed into a horrendous 4-18 shooting night, but once again came up big when it counted.  With the score tied at 84, Rose blew...

It’s a Trap: Chicago Bulls at Indiana Pacers Game 3 Preview
April 20th, 2011 at 5:00 PM
Despite the Bulls not playing nearly their best basketball, they find themselves up 2-0 in this series.  For good portions of both games, the Pacers have outhustled, and outplayed the Bulls.  But in the end, Derrick Rose and the Bulls suffocating defense has been too much.  But the Bulls have...

Dejà Vu: Chicago Bulls 96 – Indiana Pacers 90
April 19th, 2011 at 4:50 PM
I think it’s safe to say that I’ve taken these Pacers a little too lightly. After predicting a Bulls blowout in Game 2, the Pacers once again came out and gave them all they could handle.  The Pacers played with high energy on defense, and this flustered the Bulls into 22...

Turn It Up: Indiana Pacers at Chicago Bulls Game 2 Preview
April 18th, 2011 at 6:32 PM
It doesn’t take much to irk Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau.  If he doesn’t like what he sees, especially on the defensive end, he will let his players hear it.  So Thibs couldn’t have been too pleased for a majority of the Bulls 104-99 Game 1 victory.  The Bulls failed to...

Crisis Averted: Chicago Bulls 104 – Indiana Pacers 99
April 17th, 2011 at 4:42 PM
Despite trailing all first half, I never really worried that the Bulls would lose this game.  I just figured they would go out and lock down the Pacers in the second half.  The Pacers had other plans.  When the Pacers grabbed a 98-88 lead with 3:28 left, I began to...

Start Me Up: Indiana Pacers at Chicago Bulls Game 1 Preview
April 16th, 2011 at 5:23 PM
Here…we…go.  After a thrilling regular season that saw the Bulls win 62 games, it’s time to gear up for the second season.  Although the Bulls have made the playoffs since the departure of MJ, no postseason since then has been met with this type of excitement.  The Bulls have had...

Indiana Pacers’ Danny Granger: Bring on the Chicago Bulls
April 15th, 2011 at 6:54 PM
What are you doing, Granger?  Did you not get the memo?  Star Indiana Pacers forward and apparent loud mouth Danny Granger is making a fatal mistake.  He obviously hasn’t gotten the Stacey King memo about Derrick Rose that states “Don’t tick him off, or he will do bad, bad things to...

Chicago Bulls? We Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet
April 15th, 2011 at 6:34 PM
Coming into this season, the Chicago Bulls were seen as an up and comer in the Eastern Conference.  Most prognosticators predicted a fourth place finish behind Boston, Miami, and Orlando.  I myself expected around 50 wins and hopefully an appearance in the second round of the playoffs.  What happened over the...
