The Bulls and Miami Heat have had intense engagements, if not quite a fill blown rivalry, since the arrival of LeBron James and Chris Bosh in Miami after both passed on offers from the Bulls along with Dwyane Wade. That first season, the Bulls swept the Heat 3-0 in the regular season with the infamous last game going to the …

This has been a fabulous season for the Bulls; really, one of the best in franchise history. No, it’s not likely to end with any of those parades or rallies, though you never want to say never with this group, and you don’t want to go comparing them to the great Michael Jordan championship teams of the 1990’s. It’s a …

It may not be the best of times for the Bulls Saturday in Brooklyn, but Game 7’s are the best of times in sport. No more time to improve, no backs to the wall or it being a long season or another game. You can get rid of the worst of times quickly.

It reflects the best—or perhaps worst—in sports …

A tough Bulls team suffered a tough 95-92 loss Thursday to send the Bulls and Nets to Brooklyn Saturday for a Game 7 in their first round playoff series. So if it’s about toughness, perhaps the Bulls have the advantage even on the road.

“Our confidence is going up,” insisted Jimmy Butler, who played 48 minutes for the ill Luol …

For the Bulls to wrap up their first round series against the Nets on Thursday, all they’ve got to do is something that has happened every other time the teams have met at the United Center this season – win at home.

Chicago has claimed all four meetings at home this year against Brooklyn – two in the regular season …

There’s a famous comment about women from the Dutch Renaissance social critic Erasmus, “Women, can’t live with them, can’t live without them.” Though I have heard the modern version in my house with men substituted. Nevertheless, had Erasmus been watching the Bulls as they are hanging onto a 3-2 lead in the first round playoff series with the Nets, he …

This was the kind of game in Brooklyn Monday for the Bulls you almost wanted to skip, let the other guys take the win and go back home after the stunning Saturday victory and perhaps a bit healthier and more rested and end it in Game 6 Thursday.

After all, it’s about winning the series. But it’s also about playing …

That’s why you keep coming back to the NBA.

For days like Saturday when the Bulls and Brooklyn Nets gave basketball a gift, a fabulous, breathtaking, wondrous and thrilling 142-134 Bulls triple overtime victory.

Perhaps not so wonderful for the shocked Nets, who gave up a 14-point lead with less than three minutes left in regulation and head home for …

Is Charles C.J. Watson the fulcrum in this Bulls/Nets series?

No, not because Joe Johnson also has plantar fasciitis and is a game-time decision for Thursday’s pivotal (they all are, but we like to say it, anyway) Game 3 of this first round series now tied 1-1. Though if Johnson can’t play, Watson likely would move into the starting lineup.…

Joakim Noah didn’t have the most points in the Bulls 90-82 win over the Brooklyn Nets Monday to even their playoff series at 1-1. The Nets’ Brook Lopez had 21.

Noah didn’t have the most rebounds. That was teammate Carlos Boozer with 12 along with 13 points while Luol Deng had his own double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds. …
