The Bulls Monday lost 107-98 to the Cleveland Cavaliers, their consensus rival for supremacy in the Eastern Conference. There wasn’t all that much to make of the result with LeBron James sitting out almost the last seven minutes, the Bulls’ Jimmy Butler out with a sprained thumb and James and Derrick Rose often playing at different times.

But it was …

The Bulls Sunday in a 101-96 preseason win over the Charlotte Hornets finally began to show their hand for the regular season.

And they deserved a hand, as it were, for a strong finish after blowing a 13-point fourth quarter lead as Derrick Rose showed his old form scoring the team’s last six points and Joakim Noah and Pau Gasol …

Perhaps the Bulls will have more good fortune in the regular season this time.

The Bulls Tuesday lost their second straight preseason game—after going undefeated in last year’s preseason—111-109 in overtime to the Detroit Pistons.

It was played as early preseason games generally are, this time with Joakim Noah missing the game to rest his surgically repaired knee and Derrick …

The Bulls Monday opened the 2014-15 preseason with an 85-81 loss to the Washington Wizards. Though, unofficially, make it 1-0 for the Bulls.

Derrick Rose with 11 points and four assists in just under 14 minutes and one-of-two on threes was the best player on the floor, albeit as little he played and only in the first half.

“I thought …

MADRID—Just one game left for USA Basketball in the FIBA Basketball World Cup, Sunday here against Serbia for the gold medal.
