The Bulls should be represented at the NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 17 in Houston.

The second results were similar …

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 …

Considering the circumstances, the Bulls’ 94-89 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers Tuesday wasn’t all that bad. Look, it was the likes of some of the greatest athletes in the NBA today, like Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, helping the Clippers to 10 dunks while George Yardley, Togo Palazzi, Harry Gallatin, Max Zaslofsky and Bobby Wanzer just couldn’t keep up.…

It’s not really a mob because they’re from Los Angeles, where, to quote the great philosopher Neil Diamond, the sun shines most the time and the feeling is lay back.
So call the Los Angeles Clippers’ reserves, who rank among the most substantial in the NBA, the Bench Coterie.
They’re in the United Center with former Bulls coach Vinny Del …

There was a lot of “expert” speculation the Bulls were a .500 team without Derrick Rose. They are now at 5-5 after a 102-94 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers Sunday.
Though the way the Bulls are playing, a fourth consecutive game giving up more than 100 points for the first time under coach Tom Thibodeau, a rare back to …

You know how sometimes you get down to the park and you’re ready to go. But you take a look at the other team, and even though you’re still ready to go, you see their size and speed and depth and you get to thinking, “Uh, oh, what have we gotten ourselves into.”
It seemed like that Saturday the way …

It was the talk of the offseason in the NBA, the incredible accumulation of talent in Los Angeles. The Bulls Saturday get a look at it, yes, when they play….the Clippers?
“We have a chance,” former Bull and Clippers leading scorer Jamal Crawford was saying after Clippers practice Friday. “This is one of the best teams in the league, honestly. …

We knew the Bulls would miss Derrick Rose’s scoring and ability to make big plays. And it was obvious again in Monday’s 101-95 loss to the Boston Celtics when the Bulls came back from a 13-point fourth quarter deficit to within three and then missed five shots and committed three turnovers.
“We had our chances,” agreed Joakim Noah, who had …
