The Bulls were right there, trailing the powerful Oklahoma City Thunder by a point with 10 minutes left.
“I thought we were in a good situation,” said Taj Gibson, who led the Bulls with 16 points in their 97-85 loss to Oklahoma City. “It was one of those games you want to take back. It was just one of those …

It hasn’t been a perfect week for the Bulls, though on national ABC Sunday Joakim Noah’s play overshadowed that of LeBron James in a Bulls overtime win. And on national TNT Thursday, Noah missed a triple-double by one assist in the 111-87 victory over the Houston Rockets and an uninspiring Dwight Howard.
Mike Dunleavy came back from a 10-stitch …

Joakim Noah in Wednesday’s 105-94 victory over the Detroit Pistons had his second triple-double this week and third of the season, more than LeBron James and Kevin Durant combined.
Jimmy Butler had 18 points and a game-high 12 rebounds as the Bulls overwhelmed one of the league’s top rebounding teams on the boards, 43-32.

Talk about your New York minute.
It’s been said as the time between the light turning green and a New Yorker blowing the car horn. It’s lately been the time between when an NBA game starts and the Knicks contemplating the postgame meal.

My second impression was he talks very fast when he spent about three minutes with …

The Bulls aren’t this good, are they?
They’re in Dallas Friday night, and they’ve fought back from 16 points behind to take an 84-80 lead early in the fourth quarter, the highlight occurring with Joakim Noah literally diving over Dirk Nowitzki to corral a loose ball and call time out. But the Bulls then have five empty possessions, one with …

They have been three amigos, even if they don’t exactly spend all their time together. They have been good, bad and ugly on occasion, but hardly stooges. They have become the Bulls Big Three, the current version of the team’s Three Headed Monster: Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and Carlos Boozer.
“We bring the juice for this team,” Boozer said following …

If Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are the greatest shooting backcourt in NBA history, like Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson likes to say, then the Bulls Wednesday produced one of the great defensive games of all time.
Except the Bulls’ 103-83 victory over the Warriors in which Curry was held to five points and no Warriors starter scored in …

Sometimes basketball can be like poetry, its interconnected movements evoking a dramatic and creative art.
Often it is not, like in the last few minutes Tuesday of the Bulls’ 107-103 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.
Let me count the ways to the depths, breath and heights of old and new griefs which enabled the Bulls to salvage the win, their …

The Bulls can say again it was just one bad quarter, like it was when they were blown out opening night in Miami. It was that way again Sunday as the Bulls played even with the Heat other than a third quarter domination that resulted in a 93-79 Miami win.
“When we play the Miami Heat our intensity has to …
