Bulls Summer League opener - Snell destroys Delonte West, Clippers
Saturday night was the Bulls Summer League opener, and while Doug McDermott struggled some in his first NBA game, Tony Snell was outstanding as the Bulls defeated the Clippers 86-70. Box Score Snell was outstanding on both ends of the floor, making 10/14 shots from the field, including 5/7 from behind the arc. He drove... Read more »

Bulls season ends, plenty of blame to go around

Bulls season ends, plenty of blame to go around
The Bulls’ season mercifully came to an end Tuesday night when they dropped a 75-69 decision to the Wizards in the United Center. The Bulls struggled shooting the ball all season long, but two main themes were the cause of their elimination loss- missed layups and missed defensive rebounds. The official play by play was...

Wizards 98, Bulls 89- Bulls refuse to score, Thibs refuses to adjust

Wizards 98, Bulls 89- Bulls refuse to score, Thibs refuses to adjust
At this point, I am not sure what Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau is waiting for. Hinrich can’t make a shot, Augustin is afraid to shoot a 3, and Butler refuses to drive strong to the basket, preferring to keep firing away from behind the arc. He has one of the best shooters in the world-... Read more »

Bulls 100, Wizards 97- Dunleavy saves the season, Bulls win in spite of Thibs

Bulls 100, Wizards 97- Dunleavy saves the season, Bulls win in spite of Thibs
Box Score Just for the record, I started writing this with 1:35 left in the 4th quarter, and Taj Gibson shooting the 2nd of two free throws (after he missed the first) to tie the game, so I’m not sure the Bulls lost this game yet. But even if they wind up winning, I’m officially... Read more »

Wizards 101, Bulls 99 in OT- Hinrich chokes
Game 2 Box Score The Bulls’ season may not be over, but it’s at the very last commercial before the end of the show. They once again blew a double-digit lead in the 2nd half- this one in the final seven minutes- and lost Game 2 of their first-round playoff series against the Washington Wizards.... Read more »

Bulls vs Wizards Game 1 recap- Thibs blows it

Bulls vs Wizards Game 1 recap- Thibs blows it
Box Score It’s not often you’ll hear me say this about Tom Thibodeau, who is the second best coach in the NBA behind Gregg Popovich. But his refusal to take DJ Augustin out of Game 1 in the 4th quarter was the Bulls’ downfall as they lost home court advantage in a 102-93 Washington victory.... Read more »

The Bulls owe Jason Kidd a huge debt of gratitude

The Bulls owe Jason Kidd a huge debt of gratitude
The Bulls are going to have to get together and buy Nets coach Jason Kidd one hell of a Christmas present. Kidd sat Joe Johnson, Deron Williams, Paul Pierce (his 3 leading scorers), KG, Shaun Livingston and Mirza Teletovic- and started Jason Collins instead of Mason Plumlee- for Wednesday’s game in Cleveland. Predictably, the Nets... Read more »

Bulls move past Toronto with comeback win vs Pistons
DJ Augustin had 24 points, including 12 in the 4th quarter, as the Bulls rebounded from a horrific first half to down the Detroit Pistons 106-98 Friday night at the United Center. The win not only was the Bulls’ 7th in a row, it also put them a game ahead of Toronto for the 3rd... Read more »
