The Bulls Wednesday defeated the Brooklyn Nets 115-100 for just the Bulls’ second 2-0 start in the last 13 years.
“Guys are continuing to work on their games; they are knocking down shots and getting guys open in rhythm. That’s team basketball,” said Jimmy Butler, who led the Bulls with 24 points, six assists and a dominant defensive effort against …

Could it be the Bulls made their coaching change for defense?
It turned out Tuesday in the NBA season opener after all the preseason talk of a new, high powered, fancy offense that the Bulls relied on several big defensive plays down the stretch to defeat LeBron and the Vandellas (aka Cleveland Cavaliers) 97-95.

Nothing is going to be decided Tuesday when the Bulls open the 2015-16 NBA season against their rivals, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
We’ll hear afterward that it’s a long season and it’s about the playoffs and much will change in the next six or seven months. But when you are the Bulls and James has ended your season …

Derrick Rose Friday will play in his first preseason game for the 2015-16 season.
Unless, of course, he doesn’t.
But it is now looking—even if Rose’s rose colored glasses still are showing two of everything—as if Rose will at least play for a few minutes when the Bulls close the preseason in Lincoln, Neb.
“Every day I’m improving,” Rose said …

“The bench came in and really pushed us,” agreed Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg. “Jo [Noah] was terrific, Taj [Gibson] was really good and …

The Bulls aren’t exactly building toward opening night.
Seemingly taking a step backward from the aim of playing a faster, unselfish game, the Bulls Monday reverted to more individual play and a tentative game in a 94-86 loss to the Charlotte Hornets.
The Bulls were led by Jimmy Butler with 18 points while playing 37 minutes, Taj Gibson with an …

Heeeeeeeee’s back! Derrick Rose….
What, is it February 2, already? Yes, Yogi, it is like deja vu all over again.
Derrick Rose Thursday met reporters in the Advocate Center for the first time since media day and his fractured orbital bone the first day of preseason practice and declared himself anxious to return from injury.
Opening night, Oct. 27 against …
