This one Monday looked so good and so welcome for the Bulls that the usually inscrutable Derrick Rose bowed to the Salt Lake City crowd in appreciation and celebration after his three pointer for a 93-90 lead seemed to give the Bulls a victory.
But sometimes it can be a long 18.9 seconds.
Because in that time the Bulls lost …

The heat is on, on the street Inside your head, on every beat And the beat’s so loud, deep inside The pressure’s high, just to stay alive ‘Cause the heat is on — Glen Frey
The Miami Heat Monday in the United Center was on the Bulls with an 89-84 victory, the Bulls fourth consecutive home loss, a particularly discouraging …

And then Saturday in Cleveland when ABC-TV inaugurates it’s national Saturday night schedule of games the Bulls will face what figures to be a highly motivated LeBron James trying to show that his buddy Tyronn Lue in his first game deserves to be the new coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

At one time it would have been the NBA’s story of the day, a very big day, Martin Luther King Day, the Bulls and Pistons, a day to avenge perhaps the Bulls toughest loss of the season, the four-overtime marathon defeat that sent the Bulls reeling a month ago.

“It’s as good a performance as I’ve seen,” Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg reiterated as he pretty much said the same thing 10 days ago …

Funny, none of the Bulls players look Dutch.
Though it did look at times Tuesday like they were getting back in transition in wooden shoes as the Milwaukee Bucks had 30 points off turnovers in a 106-101 victory over the Bulls.

Those of us who saw Jordan from the early days through six championships don’t …

So that’s what an offense is supposed to look like.
At least for the Bulls Saturday in overcoming a 10-point third quarter deficit with 34 fourth quarter points on the way to a 98-94 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans.
Bring on the Warriors!
Still, it also took 15 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter from Aaron Brooks …
