It’s much more difficult to gauge matchups for a playoff series when even your team doesn’t know who is playing. The Bulls closed out the Nets Saturday without Kirk Hinrich, who gave it a try pregame and couldn’t go, and Luol Deng, who at least got out of the hospital. The hope is Deng will be able to get back …

The Bulls and Miami Heat have had intense engagements, if not quite a fill blown rivalry, since the arrival of LeBron James and Chris Bosh in Miami after both passed on offers from the Bulls along with Dwyane Wade. That first season, the Bulls swept the Heat 3-0 in the regular season with the infamous last game going to the …

We know there are no good losses or moral victories in ThibsWorld. So Sunday’s 105-93 Miami Heat win over Chicago went down as the Bulls’ fourth loss in the last five, dropping them to 43-37 and sixth in the Eastern Conference, one game behind the Atlanta Hawks with two games remaining for each team.
But as the Bulls finish their …

It really was something to see. LeBron James was losing it, unraveling like a worn Nike Wednesday with the Miami Heat trailing the Bulls 90-82 with about four minutes remaining on the way to a 101-97 loss and the end of Miami’s 27-game winning streak, the second longest in NBA history.
Don’t kid yourself, and don’t believe James when he …

These days in the NBA, and elsewhere, you wonder about many things. I know I’ve heard it debated whether if a parsley farmer is sued they garnish his wages. If you are a vegan, can you eat animal crackers? And how exactly with 27 consecutive wins can you beat the Heat?
Punk ‘em, I say.
Nothing dirty or sinister, now, …

The Bulls Sunday night won their second consecutive game, 104-97 over the Minnesota Timberwolves, after having lost 14 of their previous 24.
The Miami Heat Sunday won their 26th consecutive game.
The Bulls have Jimmy Butler, who started for the injured Marco Belinelli at shooting guard, and had 20 points, nine rebounds and three steals. The Heat has Dwyane Wade, …

It’s the Bulls playing the Miami Heat Thursday at the United Center on national TNT, and the Bulls know what’s coming.
Heck, they knew it a few minutes after beating the Heat last month in Miami.
“I know (coach Erik) Spoelstra is going to come in and I know what’s going to happen,” Joakim Noah said after famously suggesting that …

It wasn’t the block for Joakim Noah against Zach Randolph early in Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game won by the Western Conference All-Stars 143-138, or dunking that pass from LeBron James on the pick and roll, or the crossover drive for a basket, the defensive stand against eventual game MVP Chris Paul or the exasperation with the officials for not getting …

Joakim Noah, collegiate champion, iconoclast, innovative wardrobe manager with a career 8.9 scoring average his first two seasons, once suspended by his teammates, anthropology who clearly has evolved and is fond of talking about “swag,” is now an NBA All-Star.
Noah landed his first All-Star appearance and was joined by Luol Deng, making his second All-Star appearance.
Yes, the Bulls …

The Bulls should be represented at the NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 17 in Houston.
The question is by whom.
My guess is it will be Joakim Noah, but it won’t be determined until next week when the Eastern Conference coaches select the All-Star reserves.
The NBA Thursday on TNT announced the starters for the 62nd annual event.
The Eastern …
