Apparently in tribute to the NFL’s championship games Sunday, the Bulls went into their prevent offense late Saturday and with one basket in the last 5:17 fell to the Washington Wizards 96-93.
“We had a drought at the end,” agreed D.J. Augustin, who had 16 points in 19 minutes and four of six threes while sitting out the last six …

Games like Monday’s 102-88 loss to the Washington Wizards in which the Bulls never led illustrate why the rest of this season is going to be so difficult without Derrick Rose and Luol Deng.
The Bulls, in theory, should beat a team like the Wizards, though not just because they were ahead in the standings while both now are tied …

Joakim Noah’s play is an eloquent testimony to his game, and it was once again Saturday as Noah’s 13 fourth quarter points saved the Bulls from blowing a double digit lead and led the Bulls to their fifth consecutive win and eighth in the last 10 with a 103-97 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats.

The Bulls may be getting a new patch to place on their uniforms, a picture of an M1 Abrams inside a circle with that diagonal line running top left to bottom right.

“Whatever your circumstances are, make the best of those circumstances,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said at the end of yet another draining day for …

There is only so much grief anyone can go through. It has to have an effect.
That’s perhaps the biggest issue facing the Bulls now not only in the wake of Derrick Rose’s season-ending knee surgery in November, but after Monday’s late night trade of Luol Deng to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Watch out. Here they come?
“Look at the East. Anything is possible,” said Taj Gibson, who started for the injured Carlos Boozer Saturday in the Bulls’ 91-84 victory over the Atlanta Hawks. “You get a three game winning streak, four and you’re in the hunt for a good playoff seed. It’s all about getting hot at the right time.”
