Who says the Bulls couldn’t finish third in the Eastern Conference without Derrick Rose? Well, they just did. Oh, right. Preseason. But the Bulls finished a good one for them with a 97-90 victory over the Central Division favored Indiana Pacers at the University of Notre Dame Friday night.

“It was great to play a really good team,” said Carlos …

And now, it’s back to Miami for the Bulls in not exactly the condition they’d like to be in, though getting closer.

The Bulls Wednesday dominated the awful Charlotte Bobcats, 100-68, in an efficient bounce back effort behind 22 points from Richard Hamilton and a vital bench output of 42 points with no starter playing more than 24 minutes.

Which …

It might be said there was good and bad in the Bulls 100-94 overtime victory over the Detroit Pistons, other than the obvious of not having to listen to that public address announcer again this season.

There was the good of winning a second straight overtime game with a last second three to tie the game in regulation, this time …

The Bulls’ 83-71 win over the Detroit Pistons Friday is one of those NBA games that might be termed ugly for relatively poor shooting by both teams, few fast breaks, five of 23 on threes combined by both teams and limited enthusiasm from the home crowd as the Bulls didn’t trail after the first quarter.

But the game was really …

While Bulls guard Derrick Rose missed his ninth game in a row Friday with a sore right groin, Detroit’s Ben Gordon was also sidelined for a second consecutive game with a similar injury.

“A groin is one of those things where if it’s not 100 percent, there’s the chance you risk re-injuring it,” said Gordon following the Pistons shootaround Friday …

The Bulls wanted to get a veteran player like Richard Hamilton for the playoffs. It looks like that’s what it might be.

Not really, as the Bulls Tuesday confirmed Hamilton had suffered just a right shoulder bruise and sprain and contusion instead of, as feared, something more serious when he collided with Roy Hibbert just over a minute into Monday’s …

Luol Deng is not one to show much emotion or give away too much of himself. After all, this is a man whose childhood was marked by being a refugee and going from wealth in Sudan to poverty in England, which sheltered him and his family.

Deng knows perspective. But if Deng isn’t going to be shouting on the outside, …

Perhaps it will work. After all, the Bulls might have the NBA’s best combination of overall team depth and interior defensive strength. So maybe in this unusual season of 66 games in 124 days, they can endure longer.

So far, it’s been remarkably effective with Monday’s 92-68 victory over the Detroit Pistons. The Bulls are 8-2 and in their three …

It was the kind of night Wednesday in Detroit for the Bulls to keep it simple: Get a win over a non-playoff team and get out healthy.

Well, they accomplished the winning part. And hopefully the other, though there’s always breath to hold and prayers to say when it is Derrick Rose heading for X-rays.

The Bulls rather easily, never …

The NBA generally tries to set the premier Christmas Day game matchups as possible Finals previews. So, predictably, the Miami Heat play the defending champion Dallas Mavericks and the Bulls play the Los Angeles Lakers.

And how delicious would that encore be once again after 20 years when the Bulls won their first NBA championship in Los Angeles in 1991.…
