It’s one win and all that, but it was a pretty darned nice one for the Bulls in San Antonio Wednesday, 96-86 over the second ranked team in the Western Conference.

The Bulls will take second billing Wednesday in San Antonio because they are following the best ongoing story in the NBA.

Chicago open its Western Conference road trip against the Spurs on national ESPN following Kevin Durant and Oklahoma City visiting Miami in the faceoff of the top two contenders for league MVP. And it’s Durant edging ahead of LeBron …

With Derrick Rose out for the season and Kirk Hinrich about to miss the first of five games with a back injury, the Bulls needed a point guard and a scorer. Enter Augustin, who after being let go by the Toronto …

It’s coming down to this for the Bulls, who Saturday defeated the Charlotte Bobcats 89-87 to go back above .500 at 22-21. As D.J. Augustin goes, so go the Bulls.

“We did some good things,” said Bobcats coach Steve Clifford, whose team scored nine points in the last seven seconds to make the game uncomfortably close for the Bulls. “At …
