Get Derrick Rose going more aggressively. Check.

“That’s my game (being aggressive),” Rose said Wednesday after he led the Bulls with 23 points in a second half domination win over the Brooklyn Nets 105-80. “They gave me a lot of open shots tonight, but (I was also) driving and getting guys (shots); being in condition to take those shots is …

There was a lot of disappointment to go around for the Bulls Saturday in their 112-102 loss to the Golden State Warriors. There was the home record falling to 2-5 and 12-8 on the season, yielding more than 100 points for the sixth time in the last nine games and a career high for Draymond Green with 31 points and …

This Bulls team that rebounded Wednesday with a tough 102-95 victory over the Charlotte Hornets is much decorated and accomplished. Derrick Rose is a former league Most Valuable Player; Joakim Noah is the reigning Defensive Player of the Year and first team all-NBA center; Jimmy Butler is an all-league defender and Wednesday was named the league’s first Player of the …

If it’s Charlotte, it must be Wednesday. Short night for the Bulls players arriving in Charlotte about 3 a.m. Wednesday after the double overtime loss to the Mavs Tuesday. No beds in the locker room for pregame naps, though Doug McDermott remained out with his minor knee problem and Taj Gibson would be missing his sixth consecutive game with his …

Jimmy Butler’s story is well known, homeless at 13, junior college, Marquette taking a chance on a kid no one wanted, bottom of the first round, 30th, in 2011, then barely playing for almost two years. And then last summer, back to his beloved Texas with a training routine that may now become the rage of kids everywhere, or, at …

Jimmy Butler led with 22 points, including six points in a late fourth quarter stretch when he was the only Bull to …

It’s still the first month of the NBA season, so no time to panic about Derrick Rose sitting out the second half of the 114-109 Bulls loss to the Denver Nuggets Tuesday; no great concern about the loss that dropped the Bulls to 9-6 and 2-3 on this long road trip.

Better to celebrate perhaps the birth of a star, …

Derrick Rose Monday wasn’t spectacular in his return from missing four games with a hamstring injury. There were no ooohs and aaahs plays, though perhaps a deep breath from fans as the Bulls avoided blowing a 21-point lead with a 97-95 victory over the Utah Jazz. Rose had 18 points and a team high five assists in just under 25 …

As John Winger famously said in the movie Stripes, “And then depression set in.”

Hey, you don’t get great literary references for a November game.

But like seeing his girlfriend walk out the door to close a terrible, horrible, no good very bad day, the Bulls Friday in losing 105-87 to the Portland Trailblazers began to see this road trip …

Kirk Hinrich Friday joined the rest of the world in the quest of being day to day.

“Day to day, I joke,” Hinrich said before Friday’s game in Portland about his bruised ribs/chest contusion which put him out of the game. “I hope I’m better tomorrow. Today was tough.”

Hinrich played the role of human pinball in the loss to …
