Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg was bewildered Saturday following the Bulls 102-93 overtime loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves in which the Bulls not only were scoreless in overtime for the first time in franchise history but also missed 19 of their last 20 shots.

Well, that crisis is over.

At least until the next loss.

This once promising Bulls season that seemed over a few days ago after the loss in Charlotte amidst speculation Derrick Rose would be released or traded for a low second round draft pick lives again.

The Bulls with Thursday’s 104-98 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder behind 12 of …

The Thunder is coming; the Thunder is coming.

“Two of the top players in the league,” the Bulls’ version of Paul Revere, coach Fred Hoiberg, acknowledged Wednesday about Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. “Those two guys against Orlando go for 48 and 41. It’s a very difficult tandem to stop. And they’ve got other weapons around them that can knock …

Anyone get the license plate number of that tractor trailer?

There are signs you are having a bad day. You know, like when your financial manager is hitchhiking; when the fortune teller sends you a sympathy card; when as an NBA player you have just come from a workout wearing your NBA jersey and the cashier gives you the senior …

The Bulls Wednesday defeated the Brooklyn Nets 115-100 for just the Bulls’ second 2-0 start in the last 13 years.

“Guys are continuing to work on their games; they are knocking down shots and getting guys open in rhythm. That’s team basketball,” said Jimmy Butler, who led the Bulls with 24 points, six assists and a dominant defensive effort against …

Could it be the Bulls made their coaching change for defense?

It turned out Tuesday in the NBA season opener after all the preseason talk of a new, high powered, fancy offense that the Bulls relied on several big defensive plays down the stretch to defeat LeBron and the Vandellas (aka Cleveland Cavaliers) 97-95.

“Defense is always going to be …

Nothing is going to be decided Tuesday when the Bulls open the 2015-16 NBA season against their rivals, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

We’ll hear afterward that it’s a long season and it’s about the playoffs and much will change in the next six or seven months. But when you are the Bulls and James has ended your season …

I was reminded Monday after Bulls practice about Jerry’s mom from the Seinfeld series. She’d heard about “Crazy” Joe Davola not liking Jerry. She’s stunned, in disbelief. “How can anyone not like you!” she exclaims. “Doesn’t like you? How can that be?”
