It really was historic stuff for the Bulls in their 85-59 domination of the Orlando Magic Monday. Sure, there was the official history of Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau setting the alltime NBA record for fastest to 100 victories in his 130th game as Bulls coach.

“I think it speaks to the job he’s done,” said Magic coach Stan Van Gundy. …

The C.J. is for Charles Jr. I looked it up for the first time after the Bulls’ 89-80 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers Saturday night in which Watson led the Bulls with 20 points and four of eight three pointers.

I’m getting the feeling the way things are going we better get to know Watson a little better as he …

Sometimes there just isn’t anything left. You can squeeze the orange for just so long, and eventually the juice is gone. No matter how much more you squeeze.

Yes, the Bulls had that wonderful Derrick Rose-less victory over the Miami Heat earlier this week. But with Friday’s 100-89 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, you are starting to get the …

That’s it? That’s all you got?

Of all the storylines that emerged from Wednesday’s 106-102 Bulls win over the Miami Heat–like Derrick Rose’s absence with a groin problem, John Lucas III’s team-high 24 points, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combining for 71 points and the return of Luol Deng and C.J. Watson–the most enduring image is of a flawed and …

Late Tuesday afternoon, Derrick Rose was rear-ended by a Saturn. Later that evening, the Miami Heat felt like they had rings run around them in an overtime loss to the Orlando Magic.

Welcome to the next chapter of the battle for the Eastern Conference universe Wednesday at the United Center. The Miami Heat are already moaning about having to play …

The Bulls Monday, with a combination of Derrick Rose and trying harder, demonstrated they could beat the East’s secondary Big Three of Carmelo Anthony, Amar’e Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler, which the Bulls did 104-99.

The larger question is whether the Bulls can handle the league’s elite Big Three, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, which they’ll get a chance …

It seems like an eternity ago when Tyson Chandler joined the Bulls as a 19-year old rookie straight out of Compton, California’s Dominguez High School in 2001.

And while Chandler has previously returned to the place he started his professional career since leaving Chicago in the summer of 2006, the 11th year veteran admitted it’s still special to be back.…

What if the Bulls played to Carlos Boozer like they did during his time in Utah? What if he got as many as 17 shots, like he has just six times this season, and like he did in Saturday’s Bulls 111-97 win over the Utah Jazz as Boozer led the way with 27 points?

Would that be the answer to …

There are two ways to play Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic. You single cover Howard and stay with their three point shooters, giving Howard his points but cutting down their overall offense. Or you double Howard not to let him beat you and take your chances the perimeter guys will miss.

The Bulls basically chose neither plan, at least …

Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard said he’s trying to live in the moment amidst continuous speculation on where he may—or may not—end up between now and next week’s NBA trade deadline.

Speaking to the media following the Magic’s shootaround at the United Center on Thursday, Howard opened his comments with his best Charles Barkley impersonation.

“Listen, if you want to …
