Great players don’t always make potential game winning shots. But they take them, which is what Derrick Rose did Wednesday in Milwaukee, and his step back jumper settled through the net as time expired for a 106-104 Bulls victory.

“It’s a great feeling,” said Rose, who finished with 30 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds. “We’re just happy we got …

The Bulls concluded their first half of the 2011-12 season Wednesday with a dominant 110-91 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in which Joakim Noah had his first ever triple-double with 13 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists, the first triple-double for a Bulls center since Artis Gilmore in 1977.

Call it “party time,” as Noah left with his teammates to …

The Bulls got a big three performance in Friday’s 107-100 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. Derrick Rose toed the line, as it were, with a season high 34 points while Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah both had double/doubles, combining for 35 points and 29 rebounds.

So are the Bulls ready for the Miami Heat and its Big Three Sunday?

“We’re …

Heck, I didn’t even know All-Star voting had started with the season just a few weeks old. And now it’s about over for the fans.

That’s because with the release of the first returns Thursday, the starting lineups appear set with Derrick Rose to start again at guard.

I’m not suggesting, mind you, that your vote doesn’t count and you …

Maybe the way Derrick Rose makes those boasts, with his soft, determined style, is why we don’t take him seriously enough. Like when everyone laughed at first before the season at his rare personal swag, as Joakim Noah might term it, that he could be the league MVP. Sure, kid.

I took that, frankly, about as seriously as when late …

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau didn’t win Saturday’s game against the Bucks, which the Bulls did, 83-75.

Coaches don’t get anything in the box score. But it was one wonderful sequence late in the fourth quarter that guaranteed the game for the Bulls and gave a look at one big reason this Bulls team has responded so positively and performed above …

So now what about Booz?

Derrick Rose on Thursday became the 12th Bull and first since 1998 to be named a starter for the NBA All-Star team with the official announcement on the TNT pregame show.

Rose, an All-Star reserve last season, joins Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Amar’e Stoudemire and Dwight Howard as Eastern Conference starters. Boston’s Doc Rivers has …

This kind of season for the Bulls, somewhat unexpected at 31-14 given the serious injuries to Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah, makes basketball fun. And the Bulls were enjoying themselves after Monday’s 92-83 United Center win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Derrick Rose, who had 21 points and 10 assists, was laughing that he knew people older than teammate Kurt Thomas, …

The Bulls Tuesday defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 90-77. That was good.

The Bulls did so with still another relatively prosaic effort, mostly grind-it-out half court basketball with way too many jump shots and limited movement for most of the game that was bailed out by some very good defense. That was not so good.

So the Bulls moved to 20-10, …

Count Bucks coach Scott Skiles among those who are not surprised at the job veteran Kurt Thomas has done in filling in for the injured Joakim Noah.

“Nothing is going to occur out there that he hasn’t seen before a hundred times,” Skiles said of Thomas, who filled in for Andrew Bogut in Milwaukee at the end of last season …
