We know close counts mostly in horseshoes and hand grenades. That it did count somewhat for the Bulls Monday in their 102-100 loss to the Atlanta Hawks suggests how far they are from the team they believed they were.

“I was proud of them for fighting back from a double digit deficit,” said Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg. “We were able …

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said Wednesday after a discouraging and dispiriting Bulls 113-90 home loss to the Atlanta Hawks that he asked his players to look themselves in the mirror during the coming midseason All-Star game break.

But what happens if there is no reflection?

“It has been a bad, bad stretch of basketball,” Hoiberg admitted of the Bulls 13th …

The encouraging component of the Bulls 120-105 loss to the Atlanta Hawks Saturday was that last season’s 60-win conference finalist Hawks were using the matinee game against the Bulls to gauge their strength.

“We understood this was a good measuring stick game for us,” said Atlanta’s Al Horford. “They’re a really good team. They just won six straight. We knew …

Amidst a near record 41 points for MVP winner Russell Westbrook in the Western Conference’s 163-158 bowling score event that was an alltime record for points, there were the usual assortment of alley oop …

You know how you have this girlfriend or boyfriend who is really nice and fun and you enjoy them. But they’re not exactly perfect, and wouldn’t it be nicer if they looked just a little better? And then you find someone who does, and what do you know, they can’t play defense.

“The way that they play, that’s the way …

The spotlight shines brightest on the star. With it comes the rewards, the fame and the fortune. But also the scrutiny like with no one else, the examination with a powerful telescope. Like a diamond in the sky. That’s fine with Derrick Rose, who didn’t have a particularly sparkling one Monday in a 93-86 Bulls loss to the Atlanta Hawks.…

Bulls broadcaster Stacey King likes to call Jimmy Butler by the nickname Jimmy Buckets. He may soon have to switch to Jimmy Bucks.

The Bulls shooting guard, who is up for a new contract this month, was money in the Bulls bank Thursday with a buzzer beating three for an 85-84 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.

Butler with 20 fourth …

We know the sports axiom that a player doesn’t lose his starting job when he is injured.

Except perhaps if his team needs that player to help stabilize its reserve unit and depth.

The Bulls Saturday held on for their first win of the preseason, 91-85 over the Milwaukee Bucks. Pau Gasol led the Bulls with 20 points, 11 rebounds …
