They’d been asked for days, “What’s it going to be like?” “How would it feel?” “What would you say?”
So when Taj Gibson Wednesday in the Bulls anxiously awaited first game against former teammate Luol Deng got a defensive switch onto Deng, Gibson was ready.
“‘Lu, I know every move you want to do,’” Gibson chided the new Cavs small …

Bulls point guard Kirk Hinrich is a game-time decision with back stiffness for Monday’s game against the Orlando Magic.
Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau said Hinrich did not participate in the team’s morning shootaround at the United Center. He also missed Saturday’s game against Toronto.
