The NBA season is moving into its latter stages now, with the regular season having finished a month ago, and the remaining teams now competing in the playoffs for the chance to reach the NBA Final. However although there is barely a month of action left this season, there is...

Chicago Bulls Endure Embarassing Loss to the Miami Heat, 78-115
May 8th, 2013 at 9:01 PM
A game removed from pulling off the upset in game one, the Chicago Bulls came into game two against the Miami Heat and were utterly embarrassed in a loss 115-78. The loss is the worst playoff loss in the Bulls' franchise history. The game started off close and was a...

Chicago Bulls (1-0) Vs Miami Heat (0-1): Game Two Preview
May 8th, 2013 at 2:56 PM
Nearly 48 hours later and still you have to wonder: How did we get here? The Bulls enter game 2 against the Miami Heat in an ideal position. Regardless of the result tonight they can return home at worst tied in the series after recording one of the most surprising wins...

The Chicago Bulls (1-0) Defeat the Miami Heat (0-1) 93-86 in 93-86 Game One: I Bet You Did not See That Coming
May 6th, 2013 at 9:36 PM
Just as everyone expected, the Chicago Bulls came out and handed the first-seeded Miami Heat a 93-86 home loss in game one of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. And by everyone I mean absolutely no one.  No one gave them a chance (including me).  They were with their starting point guard...

Fifth Seeded Chicago Bulls Take on First Seeded Miami Heat
May 6th, 2013 at 12:00 PM
As the NBA enters the second round of the 2013 playoffs, tired legs have been a topic of conversation around the league.  Memphis and Oklahoma City only had one day in between their round one closeout games and game one of the second round, and the same is true for...

Despite needing to go the distance in the series, the Bulls overcame injuries...

Chicago Bulls (43-36) Vs Miami Heat (63-16) Preview: the Most Meaningless Heat/Bulls Game in 3 Years
April 14th, 2013 at 5:27 AM
The last time these two teams met a 27-game winning streak was on the line.  The Bulls, who have become adept at breaking long winning streaks, snapped the Heat’s streak back on March 27 in Chicago just before snapping the Knicks 13-game winning streak last Thursday.  However, they’ll have to...

Chicago Bulls 101 – Miami Heat 97: Game Grades
March 28th, 2013 at 10:00 AM
It's finally over. The Miami Heat's winning streak is finally over at 27 and joy to the world it came at the hands of the Chicago Bulls with a 101-97 victory. To be honest, I didn't really expect last night's win. In my game preview I openly admitted that I...

Chicago Bulls End Miami Heat’s Win Streak at 27 Games
March 27th, 2013 at 10:53 PM
After a hotly contested battle the Chicago Bulls found themselves celebrating a 101-97 win over the Miami Heat effectively ending the second longest win streak in NBA history. Unlike other games against Miami, the Bulls really downplayed the game. Players hardly talked about the streak and how they'd like to...

Chicago Bulls (38-31) Vs Miami Heat (56-14) Game Preview: Preventing History or Becoming Part of It
March 27th, 2013 at 10:00 AM
All season long, the rivalry between the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat has lost quite a bit of the luster it had these past few years. After major roster upheavals and the obvious lack of Derrick Rose both games this season between Miami and Chicago just haven't been the same....

Miami Heat 86 – Chicago Bulls 67: Game Grades
February 22nd, 2013 at 10:00 AM
Welcome back to game grades. It's been a while but they're back. Sorry if that angered any of you. You'll see that the grades now have a new look to them. Rather than have two separate charts, I figured I should combine everything together to give it a cleaner and...

Chicago Bulls (19-14) at New York Knicks (23-12) Preview: Two Games Does not a Trend Make
January 11th, 2013 at 1:53 PM
I wish, more than almost anything, that I understood this team. I wish I could figure out how a team can beat the Miami Heat on the road, blow out the Cleveland Cavaliers at home and then cough up a double-digit lead at home for the second time this year...

Chicago Bulls (18-13) V. Cleveland Cavaliers (8-27) Preview: It’s a New Year
January 7th, 2013 at 3:09 PM
The Chicago Bulls are 2-0 in 2013. It's hard to imagine a better possible start to the new year than the one we've gotten, especially after ending 2012 with an embarrassing home loss to the Charlotte Bobcats. Wins against the Orlando Magic — without Joakim Noah — and the Miami Heat,...

Chicago Bulls 96, Miami Heat 89: Taking Their Talents to South Beach
January 5th, 2013 at 1:53 PM
Raise your hand if you truly expected the Chicago Bulls to beat the Miami Heat on the road last night. You're lying, but congratulations to all of you. This game came as a surprise to most people. The Bulls had been playing extremely poorly of late, with their only wins coming against...

Chicago Bulls 96, Miami Heat 89: Game Grades
January 5th, 2013 at 1:16 PM
After the recent string of bad games for the Chicago Bulls against the Houston Rockets, Washington Wizards, and Charlotte Bobcats, expectations for the first matchup with the Miami Heat game of the 2012-2013 season were colossally low. Many Bulls fans, myself included, were expecting a big loss especially with the...

Chicago Bulls (17-13) at Miami Heat (22-8) Preview: Get Out of the Kitchen
January 4th, 2013 at 12:53 PM
Well, ladies and gentlemen, the day is finally here. The day we have all been waiting for. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat take on Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, Derrick Rose Kirk Hinrich — *record scratch* Oh boy. Look, this is hardly the marquee matchup it would be if Derrick Rose...

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...

Chicago Bulls 112, Phoenix Suns 106 (OT): Let’s Try This Again
November 15th, 2012 at 11:08 PM
All right. I've calmed down. I am now capable of discussing last night's game in a rational and coherent manner. Here goes nothing. ***PHOTO2*** With 24 hours between me and the end of the game, I've come to realize that my problem was not with the collapse itself, but rather how 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,...

Southeast Division 2012-2013 Season Preview: Let It Go, Guys, Let It Go
October 24th, 2012 at 7:00 AM
Hello there! For the second consecutive year, I am putting entirely too much effort into previewing the NBA season. Last year, I tried to cram everything into two parts — three, actually, if you include the preview for just the Bulls — but that was impractical and not particularly well organized. This...
