Eight is enough. But the losses look like they will keep coming for the Bulls.

The losing streak reached eight Tuesday in Memphis in a curious 104-97 defeat to the Grizzlies without the Bulls’ four top scorers. Yet, the Bulls came back from 25 down to get within four with 3:39 left and twice had chances to cut the lead …

If the Bulls want to have a chance to make the playoffs, it looks like they’ll have to lose the next three games.

Stay with me here as that seems to make sense.

No one is suggesting the Bulls are going to lose on purpose. But if there’s a week to rest up for a last stand this would be …

The NBA is suspending Kirk Hinrich one game for bumping referee Bennie Adams in Friday’s loss to Miami.

He will miss Tuesday’s game in Memphis. The league announced the decision Saturday afternoon.

Hinrich was ejected with a second technical foul after objecting to a flagrant foul call against Brad Miller on Dwyane Wade. Miller also drew a technical after coach …

Forget fighting their adversity. Better, the Bulls fought back this time. Now, they just need to turn that into a victory. A baby step, if you will.

The Bulls lost their seventh consecutive game Friday, 108-95 to the Miami Heat with starters Derrick Rose, Luol Deng and Joakim Noah all out injured.

But they delivered their own blows this time …

Luol Deng’s latest injury doesn’t seem serious, though the Bulls season could use some good news as well.

Deng underwent an MRI Wednesday morning for a calf injury. Deng was diagnosed with a strain and the initial diagnosis was he should miss a few gams. So, Deng could miss at least Thursday’s game in Orlando and probably Friday’s in Miami, …

There’s a famous story from the 1998 playoffs I was reminded of watching the Bulls submit and lose to the Utah Jazz Tuesday, 132-108, the team’s fifth consecutive loss in falling to ninth place and, at least for now, out of the playoffs in the Eastern Conference.

The Lakers were trailing 3-0 in the Western Conference finals and just finished …

Sometimes your best isn’t good enough. Sometimes your best won’t do. And so it was Saturday as the Bulls lost 122-116 to the Dallas Mavericks to fall back to .500.

The Bulls shot 52 percent and pushed the ball, which they need to do to score. They had the game’s high scorer. They outrebounded the Mavs, who, by the way, …

OK, no more Mr. Nice Guy for Derrick Rose.

He tried. He thought being professional was the right way. He thought he’d be rewarded for showing respect, for revering the game, for appreciating authority, for simply not acting out like a brat.

So Rose attacked the defense and the basket over and over Thursday in the Bulls 105-96 come-from-ahead loss …

Now how did the lyrics to that old Broadway tune go? This could be the start of something bad?

I don’t think that’s it, exactly, but the Bulls began their “Uh oh” stretch Monday with a 116-92 loss to the Atlanta Hawks as Joakim Noah sat out again with plantar fasciitis and could be out a week or longer, Luol …

I remember one time asking the late Cotton Fitzsimmons, the garrulous and popular longtime coach of the Suns, Hawks, Spurs and Kings, what he’d do when one of his teams had one of those nights like the Bulls did Saturday in losing 100-90 to the Indiana Pacers.

When from the opening tip they had virtually no chance of winning the …
