John Lucas has been clutch, but C.J. Watson is your back up PG

John Lucas has been clutch, but C.J. Watson is your back up PG
With John Lucas coming in and willing the Bulls to victory against Miami, Orlando, and Toronto a bunch of questions have popped up about who should play backup PG for the Bulls once Derrick Rose comes back. C.J. Watson is the correct answer to this question...

20-0 4th quarter run saves Bulls from embarrassing defeat

Okay, I suppose no defeat is that embarrassing if Derrick Rose is sitting. The Bulls simply aren't a great team without Rose and will likely lose a couple games to teams they'd normally slaughter if he were playing. On top of that, good teams drop games to bad ones all here and there regardless. Still, when the bulls fell behind for the majority of the game, it was hard to watch...

Bulls plow through Magic without Rose

Bulls plow through Magic without Rose
The Bulls notched two impressive feats with a victory last night. Chicago set the record for fewest points allowed while Tom Thibodeau became the fastest coach to 100 wins. I'm sure the partying is still going on today, or more than likely, they're simply thinking about the Raptors...

John Lucas does his Derrick Rose impression in Bulls win over Heat

John Lucas does his Derrick Rose impression in Bulls win over Heat
The best thing about the Bulls victory over the Heat is that there was no choke by Miami. There was no gaffe. There was no holding back. By the end of the game every trick they've tried on Derrick Rose was used on John Lucas; double team 40 feet from the basket, trap on the pick and roll, and even LeBron taking the assignment. The Heat couldn't stop John Lucas who played the best game of his life, and the Bulls went on to win...

Rose game time decision for Bulls @ Boston 7pm on ESPN

The Boston Celtics are not the Washington Wizards. As such, the Bulls are going to need to bring a hell of a lot more game if Derrick Rose misses the outing. John Lucas stepped up and did his part in the win, but Luol Deng, Joakim Noah, and Carlos Boozer will need to play a hell of a lot more productively to secure a win against the Celtics...

At least we played the Wizards

For my first game live at the UC, I got the enjoyment of watching perhaps the ugliest basketball game in the Derrick Rose era. I suppose the good news was that it was a win. If there was a prop bet on John Lucas having a 25, 8, and 8 game this season, I bet you'd have cleaned up...

Bulls dominate Pistons while Scalabrine love continues to unnerve me

Well I didn't think this game would take a whole lot of analysis. The Pistons are one of the many terrible teams in the NBA. Has the NBA become more top heavy or does it feel that way because we're at the top now...

Bulls vs Pistons 7pm on CSN and some final Atlanta thoughts

Bulls vs Pistons 7pm on CSN and some final Atlanta thoughts
Will Rip Hamilton fight through a sore groin to get revenge on his former team again? Let's hope not. At least not unless he's fully healthy, because aggravating a groin injury in an attempt to punish the Pistons for not starting him last season isn't all that helpful for the Bulls long term...

Watson's good, but Carmelo hits a walk off to win it for the Nuggets

I said in the pre-game thread that this was the type of game C.J. Could step up and play well in.  When he is called on to score, will get big minutes, and can dominate the ball, he’s a different player.  He came through and proved it tonight, but it wasn’t enough.  The Bulls lost... Read more »

Bulls get first preseason win

The Bulls dominated the Wizards pretty thoroughly in their first home preseason game this season to capture their first win.   Derrick Rose and John Wall had a great duel, both playing well, and especially went at each other at the start of the third quarter. Kirk Hinrich had a friendly reception, getting cheers when... Read more »
