If it’s Thursday, it must be Sacramento.

Too bad, because this Bulls Western tourist group doesn’t find much precious in those hills near where the famous gold rush took place. Instead, the Bulls came up empty and frustrated again in yet another double digit loss in Sacramento, this time 103-88. But getting better: The last two were by 42 and …

Why can’t Jimmy Butler be the MVP of the league?

No, he didn’t say it, and, in fact, the Bulls leading scorer Monday went to great lengths after the Bulls impressive comeback 105-89 win over the Clippers to deny he’s even one of the team’s go to scorers.

“I don’t think I’m a scorer,” said Butler, who led six Bulls …

Pau Gasol said he suffered a mystery calf strain Saturday in the game with the Indiana Pacers, thus forcing him to miss Monday’s game with the Clippers. Gasol said he hopes to play Thursday in Sacramento.

“Happened during the last game,” said Gasol before the game as he again was greeted by numerous Los Angeles media on his first return …

This time Butler couldn’t do it; at least not enough. Jimmy Butler, continuing his breakout season, scored a career high 32 points Saturday. But it wasn’t close to a solution for the Bulls as the decimated Indiana Pacers led almost the entire game on the way to a 99-90 victory.

Derrick Rose was out with a hamstring injury, but the …

A funny thing happened to the Bulls Thursday on the way to an impressive 100-93 victory over the conference leading Toronto Raptors, the Bulls’ fifth consecutive road win without a loss.

Derrick Rose, who had 20 points with the Bulls leading by seven with 1:53 remaining after being up by 18 a few minutes earlier, slipped on a drive and …

Derrick Rose was back Monday, and so was Joakim Noah, the Jake and Elwood of this Bulls band. And for the first time this season, the regular starters were all together, Pau “Opera” Gasol, Jimmy “the” Butler and Mike “Shooter” Dunleavy. It resulted in the best half of basketball for the Bulls, a 60-44 start on the way to a …

Remember when the Bulls looked like potential NBA champions, scoring impressively, shooting the ball as well as they have in years, a deep bench coming in to grab the baton from the starters and race ahead to finish off teams, a conference best record with the only loss in overtime?

Oh, right. That was Friday.

And then came Saturday when …

The question often comes up, in a hopeful demand from fans, about whether this 2014-15 version is the best Bulls team since the champions of the 1990s.

That’s to be determined, but thus far it’s the most offensive.

Though not in an unpleasant way.

The Bulls Friday piled up another 118 points, which was just enough to hold on for …

Jimmy Butler was starting to get noticed last season, being named all-defensive second team and averaging 13.3 per game in the playoffs, 14.5 per game in the 20 games he started. But there was room for improvement, far still to go. So Butler went back home to Texas after the season and went to school.

He’s come back to the …

There was little mystery to the Bulls slump busting 106-105 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves Saturday.

That’s right, the Butler did it.

He jimmied the door to a Bulls victory that seemed closed seconds before on a Kevin Martin three following three consecutive Timberwolves offensive rebounds on the same possession.

I sure am going to wear that one out.
