What did Magic Johnson call it? Winnin’ Time, right? For the Bulls, amazingly enough, it continues to be Nikola Mirotic time. It’s also enough to say with Mirotic Friday being named NBA Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for the second time this season that Mirotic should be Rookie of the Year.

Really, there aren’t many more unexpected stories this …

It’s not difficult to know you’re having a bad day, like the Bulls did Wednesday in a 95-91 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

You could swear the invitation said casual, or you could find yourself with maybe 5-10 Aaron Brooks trying to defend 6-6 Michael Carter-Williams, who would lead the Bucks with 21 points, including 15 consecutive in the second …

Bulls/Knicks is not what it once was, though anyone and Knicks really isn’t anymore as the Bulls Saturday in a relaxed 111-80 victory delivered the Knicks a franchise record 60th loss and ninth in the last 11 against the Bulls.

If there was a word to sum up Saturday night in the United Center it was “wave,” as in less-than-tense …

It was a good day Wednesday to be a Chicago Bull. It’s not something that’s been said all that much during the 2014-15 NBA season.

The Bulls finished off a season sweep of the Toronto Raptors with a huge fourth quarter and 116-103 victory on a season best 60.8 percent shooting. That gave the Bulls a solid lead over Toronto …

So who is this guy, this Nikola Mirotic, who basically has saved the Bulls for the last month? Enough so they’ve remained in place, playing around .500 ball with Taj Gibson returning last week from injury and Jimmy Butler Monday in the Bulls 98-86 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.

The Bulls officially clinched a playoff spot and at 43-29 moved …

The Bulls know bad times in Detroit. Though not against Joel Anthony, Spencer Dinwiddle, Caron Butler and Reggie Jackson. Yet, it was against those guys Saturday the Bulls lost a 19-point third quarter lead in losing 107-91 to the Pistons.

Remember back some 30 years ago when the American car industry began to run out of fuel? You’d buy a …

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? Or slow down, take a look around at others trying to regain their strength and realize you want to come bursting across that finish …
