You can breathe now. Go ahead. Derrick. He’s all right. Yes, really.
“I’m going to be all right,” Rose said after Wednesday’s relatively meaningless 92-87 victory over the Indiana Pacers.
See, he said it himself. Derrick said it!
He really did. He walks! He talks! He shoots!
Well, not that great, three for 11 for 10 points with seven assists …

Kyle Korver was the spirit and the soul of the Bulls Tuesday in Chicago’s 98-86 victory over the New York Knicks.
Korver had 11 of his 14 points in the fourth quarter as he also had seven rebounds, three assists and three blocks. But it was his full out dive on the floor early in the fourth quarter when he …

The Bulls really played the perfect game against the New York Knicks Sunday. Because now they have to know after that 100-99 defeat there is no way they could lose to the Knicks in a playoff series.
I’m going with Bulls by 20 when the teams meet again Tuesday at the United Center.
Unless Derrick Rose doesn’t play. Ooops, now …

It looks like the Knicks at least got the Bulls attention Sunday in that 100-99 Knicks’ overtime victory.
“Hopefully next time we play them we come out with a sense of urgency,” said Derrick Rose, who had 29 points in his return from missing 12 games with a groin injury but along with Luol Deng each missed two free throws …

Who knew March NBA Coach of the Month Tom Thibodeau also was an amateur theologian? Though perhaps that’s what happens when you lose a second game in a row for the first time in almost 14 months, which the Bulls did Monday in a 99-93 loss to the Houston Rockets.
Although Richard Hamilton returned from his shoulder injury to start …
