Let’s get this straight. Wasn’t Thibodeau supposed to be the defensive guru?
But there the high scoring Bulls go again Tuesday, this time with a 114-81 thumping of the Atlanta Hawks. On the road in the second of a back to back no less against a fifth seeded, a playoff team. It was the Bulls second straight win by more …

The Bulls played a very good game Monday in beating the New Orleans Hornets 85-77. Unless, of course, you saw the game.
It was a brutal, slow, plodding type game—like the old line about watching laws and sausages being made—between one team coming off a five-game road trip and another, the Hornets, finishing up a five-game road trip and without …

Rasual Butler, a veteran shooting guard waived this week by the Clippers, will be signed by the Bulls, league sources confirmed Wednesday.
Butler, a 6-7 nine year NBA veteran, is expected to sign a contract for the rest of the season and join the Bulls in Orlando Thursday in time for Friday’s game with the Magic.

Yes, the much anticipated and too much discussed trade finally is expected to be finalized Tuesday …

The Bulls feel like they have skills and can be shooting stars.
But not Saturday night during All-Star weekend.
“It would really hurt if I got all the way to the end and lost,” said Derrick Rose, who finished third in the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, one of four contests during the All-Star Saturday night Stupid Human Tricks. “Since I …

The buzz has officially begun.
No, they haven’t planted roses yet all around the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles where they’ll play the NBA All-Star game Friday.
But the weekend has just started. Wait a few hours.
It seems almost everything is coming up Rose, starting with Thursday night’s 42-point career scoring night for Rose on national TNT, which carries …

It wasn’t Easy, but it was Big.
The Bulls Saturday came back from a 12-point second half deficit to defeat the fading New Orleans Hornets 97-88 to finish their almost two week Western Conference trip 3-2 and return to 20 games above .500 at 36-16.
The Bulls now have just one more Western Conference road game—in Minneapolis—and are a remarkable …

Sometimes you have an epiphany, and Jerry Sloan apparently had one Wednesday night when his Utah Jazz were losing to the Bulls.
Jerry realized the inmates had taken over the asylum, and this time the guards weren’t going to do anything about it. Deron Williams, so it seems from the reports of internal friction with Sloan, got the biggest coaching …

The coaches in the Eastern Conference pretty much decided Derrick Rose is carrying the Bulls and no member of the Boston Celtics deserves league MVP consideration.
At least that is one way to interpret the results for All-Star reserves announced Thursday with four Celtics being voted by the coaches to the All-Star team, while Carlos Boozer and Luol Deng were …
