There is a secret to the Bulls’ success, however limited it still remains, and Joakim Noah gave it away Friday.

His Bulls, and they have become his this season as much as ever–if there is such a thing, anyway, in a team game–with Derrick Rose out and Luol Deng traded as they have continued to surprise and impress going into …

It’s coming down to this for the Bulls, who Saturday defeated the Charlotte Bobcats 89-87 to go back above .500 at 22-21. As D.J. Augustin goes, so go the Bulls.

“We did some good things,” said Bobcats coach Steve Clifford, whose team scored nine points in the last seven seconds to make the game uncomfortably close for the Bulls. “At …

The Bulls finally are again starting to take shape for the 2013-14 season as Jimmy Butler Friday against the Bucks returned to the starting lineup after missing 11 games with a turf toe injury. Luol Deng remained out, but Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said his return is close.

“We won’t know (how effective Butler can be) until he gets out …

This Bulls team for 2013-14 sure looked good on paper.

Though now we’re starting to wonder if we were writing with invisible ink.

“It’s frustrating,” admitted Derrick Rose Wednesday after the Bulls collapsed down the stretch once again and lost 97-80 to the Indiana Pacers, who closed the game with a 30-11 run in the last seven minutes. “But we’re …

The Bulls, especially coach Tom Thibodeau, do not like to talk about games being crucial or vital, especially this early in the season. But when Chicago visits the Indiana Pacers Wednesday, it’s something of a showdown given Indiana’s undefeated start and that the Bulls and Pacers are considered rivals for the defending champion Miami Heat.

“For us getting off to …

When you think excitement, you think Indianapolis. I know I do. Hey, they had the Super Bowl! Chicago didn’t.

Anyway, it’s another big event in Indianapolis Saturday night, the return from knee surgery of…

Danny Granger?

Oh, yes, and Mike Dunleavy returns to the city where he had his best season, averaging 19.1 per game in 2007-08 playing for the …

A tough Bulls team suffered a tough 95-92 loss Thursday to send the Bulls and Nets to Brooklyn Saturday for a Game 7 in their first round playoff series. So if it’s about toughness, perhaps the Bulls have the advantage even on the road.

“Our confidence is going up,” insisted Jimmy Butler, who played 48 minutes for the ill Luol …

There’s a famous comment about women from the Dutch Renaissance social critic Erasmus, “Women, can’t live with them, can’t live without them.” Though I have heard the modern version in my house with men substituted. Nevertheless, had Erasmus been watching the Bulls as they are hanging onto a 3-2 lead in the first round playoff series with the Nets, he …

This was the kind of game in Brooklyn Monday for the Bulls you almost wanted to skip, let the other guys take the win and go back home after the stunning Saturday victory and perhaps a bit healthier and more rested and end it in Game 6 Thursday.

After all, it’s about winning the series. But it’s also about playing …

That’s why you keep coming back to the NBA.

For days like Saturday when the Bulls and Brooklyn Nets gave basketball a gift, a fabulous, breathtaking, wondrous and thrilling 142-134 Bulls triple overtime victory.

Perhaps not so wonderful for the shocked Nets, who gave up a 14-point lead with less than three minutes left in regulation and head home for …
