You witness a game like the Bulls’ Friday 108-92 dismantling of the Toronto Raptors and you begin to fantasize again, after all the injuries and the infighting and the rotations and lineups and losing streaks that maybe, just maybe.

“It’s not about one person,” said Joakim Noah, who directed the Bulls offense wonderfully with a career best equaling 14 assists, …

Nikola Mirotic, who patiently did interviews for about a half hour in three languages Wednesday following the Bulls 103-86 victory over the Indiana Pacers, doesn’t always find the appropriate English word for the media.

It seemed so when Mirotic was asked to discuss leading the Bulls in scoring yet again, this time with 25 points, 20 in the second half …

At this rate, it’s going to be difficult for the Bulls to be in good position in their regional.

Oh, right. These were the big guys. But maybe it was the 33 rebounds for the Bulls Sunday against 52 for the Oklahoma City Thunder in a 109-100 Thunder victory that made it seem a bit like the Bulls were kids …

The NBA season is often called a marathon. If it actually were, the Bulls would be approaching 22 miles and about to pass out. What to do? Push on and perhaps fail miserably at the finish?

How’s that saying go this time of year about the Spurs springing ahead and the Bulls falling back?

It was something like that Sunday as the day lasted too long for the Bulls as they trailed the defending champions for all but a few seconds in the first minute of the game and lost 116-105.

The defeat left the Bulls …

The Bulls lost a game Friday, but they may have found another answer to a longer season.

Bulls rookie Doug McDermott had his best game of the season with a career high 16 points, 12 in a second quarter blitz that was the Bulls best sustained offensive sequence of the game. The Bulls would lose 98-84 to the Indiana Pacers, …

It had to be a movie. Indiana kid; not thought of that highly, never much gets into the games. Works and works and works. Gains the admiration of everyone, but it seems for nothing. So he works harder. Then the big guys get hurt and they look down the bench and have tried just about everyone else. So they tell …

You’re the Bulls and you’re coming down the stretch Tuesday against the team that knocked you out of the playoffs last season and seems to be a likely first round playoff opponent this season. You’re blowing a 10-point lead with just under five minutes left and you need guys to step up and make big plays with the pressure increasing.…
