The Bulls Saturday defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 91-81 in a significant kind of game. And, no, not because of the 76ers’ 24th consecutive loss, the second longest losing streak in NBA history.

It was yet another game that a Bulls’ team with nascent playoff aspirations was once again outplayed physically, on the boards, for loose balls and generally outhustled.

Moving …

The Bulls made a Chicago type statement Friday in their 91-79 loss to the Indiana Pacers. It was a Cubs-like paraphrase to, “Wait until next time.”

For the Bulls, next time comes Monday at the United Center. Though the Bulls will have to be a lot better if they hope to even the season series because the only reason they …

You hate that this is happening to the seemingly decent kids playing for the Philadelphia 76ers, who lost their 22nd consecutive game Wednesday, this time 102-94 to the Bulls.

This 76ers team, which did compete hard, is the basketball version of a train wreck in the making. You can’t bear to look as the crash is coming and you weep …

The Bulls were right there, trailing the powerful Oklahoma City Thunder by a point with 10 minutes left.

“I thought we were in a good situation,” said Taj Gibson, who led the Bulls with 16 points in their 97-85 loss to Oklahoma City. “It was one of those games you want to take back. It was just one of those …

It hasn’t been a perfect week for the Bulls, though on national ABC Sunday Joakim Noah’s play overshadowed that of LeBron James in a Bulls overtime win. And on national TNT Thursday, Noah missed a triple-double by one assist in the 111-87 victory over the Houston Rockets and an uninspiring Dwight Howard.

Mike Dunleavy came back from a 10-stitch …

These are some things I was thinking about during Tuesday’s Bulls/Spurs game: If a mime is arrested, are they told they have the right to start speaking? If I loan someone $20 and never see them again, that has to be money well spent. How do deer know to cross the road by those yellow signs? And if Jimmy cracks …

Coming off a hard fought, emotional overtime victory against the Miami Heat, a challenge for the Bulls will be to sustain the right mentality and come ready for their next opponent, which happens to be a formidable one.

“It’s not easy,” said Joakim Noah as he and his teammates prepared to host the San Antonio Spurs, owners of the league’s …

Before Friday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau went over the Grizzlies plays, as he always does, and his team’s priorities.

Thibodeau drew on a dry erase board, but it might have been a mirror as there is no team in the NBA that more duplicates the Bulls than the Grizzlies, also in the top three in …

Joakim Noah in Wednesday’s 105-94 victory over the Detroit Pistons had his second triple-double this week and third of the season, more than LeBron James and Kevin Durant combined.

Jimmy Butler had 18 points and a game-high 12 rebounds as the Bulls overwhelmed one of the league’s top rebounding teams on the boards, 43-32.

Taj Gibson came off the bench …

There are worse days. After all, you could be driving behind a police car and your horn gets stuck. Someone asks you if that’s your car sitting on concrete blocks. You say you’ve got a pair of black and brown shoes at home just like the ones you are wearing.

You get behind the Brooklyn Nets by 14 points eight …
