Derrick Rose is scary, scoring 39 points Saturday to rally the Bulls from a 10-point deficit in the last 3:38 for a 104-99 victory in Game 1 of the NBA playoffs.
The Pacers’ Danny Granger crystallized just how frightening.
“With Chicago, no (you never think you have it won),” said Danny Granger, who led the surprising Pacers with 24 points. …

It seems the Pacers’ Danny Granger may have provided more than so-called bulletin board material with his comments about how if you stop Derrick Rose, you stop the Bulls. It looks like Granger may have given away the Pacers’ game plan.
Foul Derrick Rose. Then foul him harder. Then maybe with some vile intent. Dirty? Flagrant?
The Pacers have some …

You almost hate to see it end, arguably the greatest regular season in Bulls franchise history with Wednesday’s 97-92 win over the New Jersey Nets.
Greatest because there never has been one as successful and unexpected, the Bulls regarded preseason as perhaps no better than the league’s 10th best team and looking up at no one at the end.…

It was after a long practice Monday afternoon in Madison Square Garden, the world’s smelliest, most rotten and decrepit arena. Just about all the Bulls players sat along the perimeter of the floor, chatting, getting some treatment and generally waiting for the class in Basketball Jo to conclude.
Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau threw Joakim Noah passes and Noah made moves, …

It wasn’t the most upbeat celebration of a 60-win season Sunday with the Bulls’ 102-99 victory over the Orlando Magic, even though every time in franchise history the Bulls have won at least 60 games, they have won an NBA championship.
Of course, every time they did it was with Michael Jordan. Though Derrick Rose, with 39 points, including 11 …

Well, the Bulls officially are No. 1 with Friday’s 93-82 snoozer of a victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers to clinch the best record for the 2010-11 NBA season in the Eastern Conference.
Everyone raise your foam fingers!
Go figure. The Bulls zeroed in on the magical 60-win season going to 59-20 with their sixth straight win, 18th in the …

You have to be politically correct in sports, too, so no one was about to bury the Boston Celtics. Other than Thursday on the scoreboard as the Bulls pretty much wrapped up the No. 1 playoff seed in the Eastern Conference with a convincing 97-81 win over the defending Eastern Conference champions.
So everyone knows how it goes as you …

It sounds like one of those April Fool’s jokes.
You know, telling people there are two weeks left in the NBA season and with Joakim Noah out yet again, this time missing his 33rd game with a sprained ankle, with Carlos Boozer having a pair of such sprains himself and missing eight games to add to the 15 in …

C. Booz is back—by the way, I love when I can use their hip hop nickname names—but is that because Jo is gone?
Yes, it was on Wednesday an impressive comeback domination for the Bulls after Monday’s loss to the 76ers, a one sided 108-91 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves during which the Bulls led by double figures for …

Maybe the way Derrick Rose makes those boasts, with his soft, determined style, is why we don’t take him seriously enough. Like when everyone laughed at first before the season at his rare personal swag, as Joakim Noah might term it, that he could be the league MVP. Sure, kid.
I took that, frankly, about as seriously as when late …
