Really, c’mon now. This is getting ridiculous. And I better not hear anyone in the NBA complain about the second of a back-to-back on the road ever again.
In fact, the Bulls’ relentless 93-76 victory over the Atlanta Hawks Saturday could be one of those seminal moments in NBA history, like the first morning shootaround.
Playing the second game of …

Joakim Noah is not a morning person. You, of course, can just about tell by his looks. But really, few in the NBA are. After all, they really are second shift workers, needing to be at their best around 9 p.m. So 9 a.m. is a bit early for a lot of noise to say nothing about adjectives.
But that’s …

Yes, that was a cute little group of players the Bulls had coming off the bench last season. Even gave themselves a whimsical nickname and sold some t-shirts.
But how about having a real, productive group of reserves, players who actually average double figures, which no Bulls reserve has done the past two years. How about 13 of the Bulls’ …

The Bulls now can say they’ve only been uncompetitive twice this season. But when they are it really looks bad as the Atlanta Hawks Saturday overwhelmed a seemingly tired and surprisingly casual Bulls team 92-75.
It was the second fewest points the Bulls scored this season, and not exactly against one of the better defensive teams.
It was so bad …

Defeat isn’t a tragedy, though no one among the Bulls’ players was feeling particularly sanguine Monday about a 27-point third quarter lead at home that turned into an inexplicable 93-92 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.
“I’m stunned by simple fact that we have a 25 point lead (even he didn’t know it was worse) and the way we defend we …

It was Joakim Noah who made the “arrive home safely shot” for the Bulls Wednesday, the clinching 18-footer with 29.5 seconds left that sent the home fans to the exits in a Bulls’ 112-106 overtime victory over the Phoenix Suns.
Yes, Noah of the counter-clockwise spinning “tornado” jump shot, of the hook shot launched sometimes from his waist, the guy …

If Thursday on TNT’s national TV and in the United Center was an assessment for the Bulls against the Western champion Oklahoma City Thunder, the Bulls may be better than anticipated but not as good as they hope they can be.
“We were right there in the game,” said Luol Deng, who carried the offense with 27 points, including two …

Who says the Bulls couldn’t finish third in the Eastern Conference without Derrick Rose? Well, they just did. Oh, right. Preseason. But the Bulls finished a good one for them with a 97-90 victory over the Central Division favored Indiana Pacers at the University of Notre Dame Friday night.
“It was great to play a really good team,” said Carlos …

First place, baby!
OK, perhaps it’s a bit too soon to celebrate being undefeated after the Bulls sweat-it-out 92-88 win Tuesday at the United Center over the Memphis Grizzlies in the preseason opener.
“Choppy,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau offered about a stuttering start and then a big third quarter before a group of regular irregulars shot one for 21 in …

When the Bulls took the court and opened the preseason against the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday at the United Center, they did so with a different look.
The most significant change, of course, was that Derrick Rose remains on the sideline as he rehabs a torn ACL. With Rose out, Kirk Hinrich started at point guard in his return to …
