Derrick Rose will be there in Miami Friday when the Bulls get their first crack this season at the defending champion Miami Heat. But it’s not quite the same, obviously, with Rose sidelined likely another few months recovering from his knee injury and surgery.
These were the kind of games you circled the calendar for the last few years, the …

Will Joakim Noah be an All-Star this season?
It’s looking like it will be a close call with the NBA Thursday releasing the second voting returns.
Noah remains seventh among Eastern Conference frontcourt players. The fan voting is for three front court players as the center position was eliminated this season and two backcourt players.
The second results were similar …

It felt like Bulls/Knicks Friday all over again when it really mattered. When Michael Jordan was in the face of Xavier McDaniel when he was bullying Scottie Pippen. When Pippen was dunking and stepping over a supine Patrick Ewing and then screaming invective at Spike Lee. John Starks dunking on Jordan and then Jordan, Pippen and Horace Grant stuffing Charles …

It was a good thing Joakim Noah didn’t add Houston to that list of questionable vacation cities, like Cleveland and Philadelphia, when the Bulls were there last month.
Because based on the first All-Star game returns released by the NBA Thursday, my guess is Noah has a good chance of being added to the team that will play in Houston …

Maybe Saturday’s Bulls 93-85 victory over the East leading New York Knicks wasn’t quite as good as it gets, but it was as good as it’s been this season for the Bulls.
Not only was it just the second victory over a team with a winning record. But it was the team coming off a blowout win in Miami and …

This isn’t looking very good for the Bulls, who fell Tuesday to 8-8 after an 80-76 loss to the Indiana Pacers that, nevertheless, left them in a three-way tie for the Central Division lead.
That would be somewhat the equivalent of being the star of The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas movie. Nice to get top billing, though no one …

Kyle Korver was the spirit and the soul of the Bulls Tuesday in Chicago’s 98-86 victory over the New York Knicks.
Korver had 11 of his 14 points in the fourth quarter as he also had seven rebounds, three assists and three blocks. But it was his full out dive on the floor early in the fourth quarter when he …

Derrick Rose’s first game back from missing 12 in a row with a groin injury didn’t start out like he planned.
The reigning NBA MVP was limited to only seven points in the first half as the Knicks sprinted out to a 27-6 lead during Sunday’s afternoon game at Madison Square Garden.
The Bulls chipped away at the deficit and …

The Bulls really played the perfect game against the New York Knicks Sunday. Because now they have to know after that 100-99 defeat there is no way they could lose to the Knicks in a playoff series.
I’m going with Bulls by 20 when the teams meet again Tuesday at the United Center.
Unless Derrick Rose doesn’t play. Ooops, now …

It looks like the Knicks at least got the Bulls attention Sunday in that 100-99 Knicks’ overtime victory.
“Hopefully next time we play them we come out with a sense of urgency,” said Derrick Rose, who had 29 points in his return from missing 12 games with a groin injury but along with Luol Deng each missed two free throws …
