It was a good thing Joakim Noah didn’t add Houston to that list of questionable vacation cities, like Cleveland and Philadelphia, when the Bulls were there last month.
Because based on the first All-Star game returns released by the NBA Thursday, my guess is Noah has a good chance of being added to the team that will play in Houston …

The lately questioned, if also maligned, Bulls bench had some answers Saturday. And to the biggest one of “Where’s Marco?” it came with three consecutive three pointers early in the fourth quarter to give the Bulls enough space to hang on for an 87-80 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
“I thought our bench was terrific,” said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. …

If Thursday on TNT’s national TV and in the United Center was an assessment for the Bulls against the Western champion Oklahoma City Thunder, the Bulls may be better than anticipated but not as good as they hope they can be.
“We were right there in the game,” said Luol Deng, who carried the offense with 27 points, including two …

It’s a rematch Thursday for the Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder.
Only this time, unfortunately for the Bulls, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are planning to play.
It was just over two weeks ago in the preseason that the Bulls managed a 94-89 win over the defending Western Conference champions who were resting their two main stars. They may have …

Hello, this is Gar Forman. Is Derek Fisher there? No. Well, how about Mike James? OK, what about Chris Quinn? Zabian Dowdell?
I don’t think the Bulls are quite there yet. But in defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder 94-89 Tuesday in the United Center, the Bulls endured the worst of all tweaks.
This being the one to Kirk Hinrich, the …

Though he hasn’t spoke to Derrick Rose since Rose began attacking the rehabilitation of his left knee, Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant believes he has a pretty good idea of what to expect from someone he’s considered a friend for the last two years.
“I’m sure he’s going to have a really, really nice comeback here for the Bulls and be …

After all those mostly underperforming “M’s,” — Minnesota, Milwaukee and Memphis — the Bulls get a look at a real contender Tuesday at the United Center, the Western Conference champion Oklahoma City Thunder.
Though mostly overshadowed by the Lakers and their high profile additions of Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, most around the NBA still consider the Thunder the favorites …

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 …
