Maybe Roy Hibbert, who is an All-Star, and David West? Really don’t score that much. Same with Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter. Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe? Too young. Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic? Maybe too ineffective. Dwight Howard and someone? But who? Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. Got to make more free throws.
With Joakim Noah, who had his …

The Bulls Sunday were about to blow a 19-point late third quarter lead to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Lakers on a 7-0 run to open the fourth quarter to cut the Bulls lead to 77-69. And though the Lakers were depleted with injuries, they’re fourth in the league in three pointers made and can erase leads quickly.
But what …

The Bulls Tuesday recorded one of their more unlikely wins, 101-92 over Phoenix Suns, coming off one of their most unsightly losses, the blowout in Sacramento when they were close to franchise lows in shooting.

It’s one win and all that, but it was a pretty darned nice one for the Bulls in San Antonio Wednesday, 96-86 over the second ranked team in the Western Conference.
It marked the Bulls’ seventh win in their last eight on the road and 14th in the last 20 overall. With an 11-4 record, they are the winningest team …

It wasn’t quite the Luol Deng emotional reunion, but it was another night with another popular former Bull, Marco Belinelli.
“We hated to lose him,” said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau before the game as the Bulls brought Joakim Noah and Kirk Hinrich back into the lineup. “Anyone who’s serious about basketball and serious about winning is going to thrive with …

The Bulls went into this season believing they had a pretty good chance with three All-Stars, Derrick Rose, Luol Deng and Joakim Noah.
It’s difficult to say, even though you’d get an argument from Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, that the Bulls had an equally good chance Monday against the Minnesota Timberwolves with Taj Gibson playing center for the ill Noah, …

It’s coming down to this for the Bulls, who Saturday defeated the Charlotte Bobcats 89-87 to go back above .500 at 22-21. As D.J. Augustin goes, so go the Bulls.
“We did some good things,” said Bobcats coach Steve Clifford, whose team scored nine points in the last seven seconds to make the game uncomfortably close for the Bulls. “At …

Joakim Noah is having the best season in his seven-year NBA career.
He’s averaging 11.7 points and a career-high 11.4 rebounds, one of 10 NBA players averaging a double-double. Plus, he’s averaging 14.4 points and 15 rebounds in 11 games in January.
If not for Kevin Durant, he’d be making a case for player of the month. He’s in the …
