Bulls top Raptors in game with a playoff feel

Bulls top Raptors in game with a playoff feel
Neither team played particularly great for any stretch with both squads going through long stretches of offensive dominance and offensive ineptitude. Chicago blew a 15 point lead in the first half and a 13 point lead in the second, but hung on to win on Jimmy Butler's block with two seconds to go...

Tony Snell fringe NBA player and steal of the draft

Looking at the past draft shows the great disparity of quality that can be found from one draft to the next. Tony Snell looks like a fringe NBA player to me, yet if we were to redraft this draft he might actually go considerably higher in the draft than he did...

Bulls lose another heart breaker, fall out of top eight
If the game were 50 minutes instead of 48, I think the Bulls would have found a way to grind out the win. However, they mounted their come back just a bit too late and similar to the Knicks game, couldn't make plays at the end despite multiple opportunities...

Bulls comeback falls short to Knicks

Bulls comeback falls short to Knicks
The Knicks are probably happy with any win they can get these days. Maybe when they get Tyson Chandler back things will improve some for them, though I don't know how Tyson Chandler helps an offense that scored a mere 83 points on a Chicago defense missing its two best perimeter defenders...

Luol Deng stars, Derrick Rose scrubs

Luol Deng stars, Derrick Rose scrubs
Up is down? Down is up? Cats and dogs living together? It's the end of days. Derrick Rose's 9.4 PER heading into this game? Yeah, it went down. Luol Deng? He's playing like he wants one more big pay day. The Chicago Bulls edged the Bobcats in a fairly ugly affair...

Derrick Rose a game time decision as Bulls take on Raptors

After a long three day lay off, the Bulls are finally back in action against the Raptors. Derrick Rose will be a game time decision for the game. He sounds awfully optimistic about his chances of playing while the coach staff doesn't seem quite so committed...

Derrick Rose tweaks hamstring, marring a nice win

Well other than that how was the play Mrs. Lincoln? That's sort of the story last night as Derrick Rose tweaked his hamstring on a late drive to the basket against the Cavaliers. The Cavaliers came back out, and Rose was on the court for the next play but was then sent to the bench for the remaining three minutes while the Bulls clung to a seven point lead...
