This season for the Bulls has been about whether they can get past the Miami Heat, much like the Bulls of the late 1980’s struggled with the Detroit Pistons.

It’s been about being able to counter the star power of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, and lately, whether Derrick Rose will be healthy enough for the Bulls to make that …

And now, it’s back to Miami for the Bulls in not exactly the condition they’d like to be in, though getting closer.

The Bulls Wednesday dominated the awful Charlotte Bobcats, 100-68, in an efficient bounce back effort behind 22 points from Richard Hamilton and a vital bench output of 42 points with no starter playing more than 24 minutes.

Which …

Thursday was not only a good day for the Bulls with their 96-86 overtime victory over the Miami Heat, but it was an important day for the rest of the NBA one of those days you’ll remember where you were.

That’s because it was the day the Miami Heat, 21 months after coming together and declaring a dynasty, lost its …

Kyle Korver was the spirit and the soul of the Bulls Tuesday in Chicago’s 98-86 victory over the New York Knicks.

Korver had 11 of his 14 points in the fourth quarter as he also had seven rebounds, three assists and three blocks. But it was his full out dive on the floor early in the fourth quarter when he …

Who knew March NBA Coach of the Month Tom Thibodeau also was an amateur theologian? Though perhaps that’s what happens when you lose a second game in a row for the first time in almost 14 months, which the Bulls did Monday in a 99-93 loss to the Houston Rockets.

Although Richard Hamilton returned from his shoulder injury to start …

Cotton Fitzsimmons, the longtime NBA coach, used to stroll into the locker room after a game like the Bulls had Sunday in being dominated by the Oklahoma City Thunder 92-78.

Cotton would walk into the toilet area and flush them all, the roaring echoing throughout the quiet of his somber players. The message was clear: We played like crap, but …

Well, there goes home-court advantage in the NBA Finals. Of course, there goes the Finals if the Bulls play like they did Sunday in a 92-78 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

But don’t always believe what you read. This one could have been by 50 in favor of the Thunder as they basically pulled their team late in the …

It’s not exactly the most salient element of Sunday’s national TV Bulls game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. But both the Bulls with Joakim Noah and the Thunder with Russell Westbrook have players who mimic old West six shooters when they do something special.

It’s likely we’ll get to see them much more from Westbrook.

“They are really good. It …

Is this 2011-12 Bulls team the second best in franchise history?

I assume they are not, since after losing badly at home to the fighting-for-the-playoffs Denver Nuggets Monday in the wake of a pair of fortunate wins over the barely trying Toronto Raptors, we pretty much decided these aren’t the best of times nor really an age of wisdom for …

So let’s take a look at the matchups between the team with the league’s best record, the Bulls, and the Denver Nuggets, who are tied for the last playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Denver has Ty Lawson and Arron Afflalo in the backcourt compared with C.J. Watson and Ronnie Brewer. So make that huge edge for the Nuggets as …
