Triple overtime wins, like the Bulls’ 128-125 victory over the Orlando Magic Wednesday, can be ugly as well.

Even when Joakim Noah has season-highs of 26 points and 19 rebounds and when rookie Tony Snell is dunking flying in from the free throw line like Vince Carter and leading the team in scoring in the clinching overtime and when Mike …

Christmas morning is one for surprises, and starting at 11 a.m., the NBA is getting one.

No Derrick Rose, no Brook Lopez, Paul Pierce barely avoiding a suspension, Luol Deng likely out with an Achilles problem, Carmelo Anthony uncertain with a sprained ankle, Kevin Garnett calcifying.

“We’ll go in there and probably think of Game 7 for a minute,” said …

Luol Deng always has been a man, a United Nations Refuge Humanitarian of the Year award winner, the NBA’s Sportsmanship award winner, an ICON role model award from a major entertainment publication and various community service commendations.

Now Deng has to be, “the Man,” that much identified, if somewhat of a contradictory designation in a team sport.

“It’s something I’ve …

The Bulls, especially coach Tom Thibodeau, do not like to talk about games being crucial or vital, especially this early in the season. But when Chicago visits the Indiana Pacers Wednesday, it’s something of a showdown given Indiana’s undefeated start and that the Bulls and Pacers are considered rivals for the defending champion Miami Heat.

“For us getting off to …

Nazr Mohammed has heard all this talk about the hole in the donut that is the Bulls’ upcoming season, a mound of sweetness with something missing in the middle, presumably a backup center.

But Mohammed says the Bulls should not worry.

“That’s how I look at it,” says the 15-year veteran from Kenwood Academy who’ll turn 36 next month. “That …

It’s tough to be the next great one. Grant Hill and Vince Carter never much cared for that Next Jordan label, and many others have tripped up being advertised as the next Wilt or Russell or Oscar or Magic or Bird.

Mike Dunleavy Jr. as well since being a good shooting, unselfish, ball handling white guy, well, you have to …

In the annual NBA Draft Thursday, the Bulls selected the potential replacement for Marco Belinelli.

The Brooklyn Nets apparently added two of the top players in NBA history, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.

Edge Bulls?

The story of the draft was less the surprise of Anthony Bennett going No. 1 to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Nerlens Noel falling to No. …

Are two No. 1 overall draft picks enough to make up for the loss of LeBron James? Probably not, but the Cleveland Cavaliers got their second Tuesday in the NBA Draft Lottery, and that raised the intriguing possibility that the way really is being cleared for James to return to Cleveland as a free agent after next season.

Probably someone in this stats infested sports world measures it, though I haven’t seen it yet. But the Bulls probably just completed the best ever 45-win regular season with a second round playoff loss.

Of course, they knew they’d be missing for part, and it turned out all, their best player and a former league MVP, Derrick Rose. But then …

The 2012-13 season probably had to finish like it did for the Bulls Wednesday in a series closing 94-91 loss to the Miami Heat, impressive in their resolve and refusal to yield against long odds while an if only and a coulda and shoulda away from yet another improbable victory.

The Bulls made Miami sweat again. They would make it …
