Chicago Bulls (26-16) at Washington Wizards (10-31) Preview
January 26th, 2013 at 3:00 PM
Coming off a huge performance against the Golden State Warriors last night, the Chicago Bulls travel to the nation's capitol to take on the Washington Wizards in the second game of a back to back. Coming into this game the Bulls have won six of seven games and have, at...

Bulls 101 Roundtable: Who is This Man and What Has He Done with Carlos Boozer?
January 21st, 2013 at 11:30 AM
With Carlos Boozer celebrating his New Year's with nearly three weeks of much-improved play — so much so that some people seriously think he should be an All-Star — the Bulls 101 staff takes a swing at whether he'll be able to keep it up and what, if anything, should...

Memphis Grizzlies 85, Chicago Bulls 82: Seriously, This Team Makes No Sense
January 20th, 2013 at 5:16 PM
I defy you to find a weirder team than the Chicago Bulls. You can't do it. They go from elite to unwatchable to elite again to unwatchable again so often and so fast that it shouldn't even be possible. Against the Memphis Grizzlies at home, without Luol Deng, the Bulls came...

Chicago Bulls (23-15) V. Memphis Grizzlies (25-13) Preview: Destination Horror
January 19th, 2013 at 4:53 PM
The last time the Chicago Bulls took on the Memphis Grizzlies was December 17. I remember this without having to look it up because that happened to be my birthday. And the Bulls' suckfest was a legitimate downer to end my day. In fact, I got so frustrated by how...

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...

Memphis Grizzlies 80, Chicago Bulls 71: Hell on Earth
December 18th, 2012 at 4:01 PM
Anyone remember the Chicago Bulls' loss to the Indiana Pacers two weeks ago? The final was 80-76, and the game was so ugly it prompted us here at Bulls 101 to title our recap "Oh God There's So Much Blood." Last night's loss to the Memphis Grizzlies was worse, somehow. First off,...

Chicago Bulls (13-9) at Memphis Grizzlies (15-6) Preview: into the Lion—er, Bear’s Den
December 17th, 2012 at 12:00 PM
All right. Good news and bad news time, as the Chicago Bulls head to Tennessee to take on the Memphis Grizzlies. The good news: Nate Robinson isn't starting anymore! The bad news: Kirk Hinrich is. We here at Bulls 101 have been very vocal in our criticism of Captain Kirk. He's not nearly...

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 92, Memphis Grizzlies 88: Hot Tub Kirk Hinrich Machine
October 9th, 2012 at 10:01 PM
The Chicago Bulls won their first preseason game by beating the Memphis Grizzlies by four. The game turned in the third quarter, when the Bulls opened the second half on a 21-4 run to turn a three-point halftime deficit into a 14 point lead. The game was very sloppy, but...

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 Number One Seed Watch: Miami Heat Trounced by Memphis Grizzlies
April 6th, 2012 at 9:58 PM
The Chicago Bulls are currently in a tight battle for the number one seed in the Eastern Conference with our not-so-good friends from South Beach, so I figured it would be a good idea to provide some updates (when possible) on those dastardly Miami Heat as we come down the...

Chicago Bulls Week in Review: Battered, not Beaten
January 23rd, 2012 at 10:03 AM
The injury list for the Chicago Bulls just keeps getting longer and longer. While Rip Hamilton and C.J. Watson returned from injury, Derrick Rose (toe), Luol Deng (wrist), Joakim Noah (ankle), Taj Gibson (ankle) and John Lucas III (groin) were all inflicted with various maladies.  But even with all the injuries, the...

Derrick Rose Out, Rip Hamilton to Start Against Phoenix Suns
January 17th, 2012 at 6:44 PM
***PHOTO1*** Derrick Rose will sit out his second straight game with a toe injury when the Chicago Bulls take on the Phoenix Suns at the United Center on Tuesday night. Rose initially injured the toe last week against the Minnesota Timberwolves and subsequently missed one game. He would return for...

No Rose, No Win: Memphis Grizzlies 102 – Chicago Bulls 86
January 16th, 2012 at 4:05 PM
The Chicago Bulls were able to beat the Washington Wizards last week with Derrick Rose sidelined. Unfortunately for the Bulls, the Memphis Grizzlies are not the steaming pile of dung that the Wizards are. Rose missed the Bulls' MLK Day matinee against the Grizzlies, and it really showed, as Memphis...

MLK Day Matinee: Chicago Bulls (12-2) at Memphis Grizzlies (5-6) Preview
January 16th, 2012 at 10:36 AM
Last year at this time, Derrick Rose was putting the finishing touches on his first (and so far only) career triple-double in a 96-84 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. This year, Rose and the Bulls return to Memphis for another Martin Luther King Day matinee (Noon CT on ESPN). Several...

Report: Rip Hamilton May Return Friday
January 15th, 2012 at 7:25 PM
***PHOTO1*** Chicago Bulls shooting guard Rip Hamilton may return from his groin injury as early as Friday for the game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Neil Hayes of the Chicago Sun Times. "He's still day-to-day," Tom Thibodeau said. "We just want to be real smart with him. We don't want...

Chicago Bulls Injury Update: C.J. Watson Likely Out Tuesday, Rip Hamilton a Game-Time Decision
January 2nd, 2012 at 3:41 PM
***PHOTO1*** Although Chicago Bulls backup point guard C.J. Watson got rid of the sling he was wearing to protect his left elbow after Sunday night's win over the Memphis Grizzlies, coach Tom Thibodeau says that Watson will likely miss Tuesday's game against the Atlanta Hawks.  "That would be my guess," Thibodeau...

Total Annihilation: Chicago Bulls 104 – Memphis Grizzlies 64
January 1st, 2012 at 11:36 PM
After the Miami Heat thoroughly embarrassed the hapless Charlotte Bobcats by 39 earlier Sunday night, the Chicago Bulls (4-1) decided to one-up them. Literally. The Bulls rang in 2012 with a bang and opened their home slate at the United Center with a 104-64 smackdown of the Mike Conley-less Memphis...

Homecoming: Memphis Grizzlies (1-2) at Chicago Bulls (3-1) Preview
January 1st, 2012 at 5:52 PM
Well, the Bulls have finally reached their home opener at the United Center after going 3-1 on their four game road trip to start the year. All in all, it's tough to be too upset with their start to the year so far. But we'll certainly try. ***PHOTO1*** I have one takeaway...

Chicago Bulls Finish West Road Trip on High Note
December 31st, 2011 at 2:08 PM
***PHOTO1*** It was just days ago when some Chicago Bulls fans were panicking after an ugly loss to the Golden State Warriors. The Bulls' offense was struggling after two lethargic performances, and many wondered what had happened to the dominant regular season team of last year.  Those worries were put on...
