Now is as good a time as any for the Bulls to test themselves, coming off Friday’s most one-sided win of the season, 117-89 over the Denver Nuggets for their fifth consecutive win and season-best four games over .500. It’s not only a nice time to get out of Chicago to Miami, but perhaps the best time this season to …

In Bulls franchise lore, it may become known as, “the Block.”

Or it may not.

But Jimmy Butler’s game-saving block on All-Star DeMar DeRozan with 2.4 seconds remaining Wednesday enabled the Bulls to pull out a 94-92 victory over the Toronto Raptors, Chicago’s fourth straight win to move to 28-25, a half-game behind third place Toronto in the Eastern Conference.…

You may be able to find happier people than Taj Gibson.

Perhaps someone sitting in their Redondo Beach condo facing the ocean and the beach volleyball players in February. Maybe a mother holding her baby for the first time. Maybe Thibs with game tapes and an empty Berto Center.

But there aren’t many beaming these days quite like Gibson, who …

There is beauty in many things in this world that could be considered unpleasant. There’s manure, an organic material which produces growth. Or perhaps age wrinkles, which can designate wisdom. Some may wince watching child birth, which is the pure beauty of life. There is a famous episode of the Twilight Zone TV show in which a woman tries desperately …

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, …

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 …

Taj Gibson knows all about game winning shots, certainly one. Though it’s Nazr Mohammed’s.

Gibson’s space in the Bulls locker room is adjacent to Mohammed’s. And Gibson says just about every day Mohammed pulls out his cell phone and shows him an Instagram of a Mohammed game-winner from when Mohammed was at the University of Kentucky.

“Every time I see …

It’s Joakim Noah’s basketball world now, and all the rest of us can do anymore is be witnesses.

“Joakim is doing just about everything. Laundry, everything,” said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau after the team’s most comfortable win of the season Saturday, 103-78 over the Philadelphia 76ers. “You can’t play any better than he is playing right now in every aspect …

Games like Monday’s 102-88 loss to the Washington Wizards in which the Bulls never led illustrate why the rest of this season is going to be so difficult without Derrick Rose and Luol Deng.

The Bulls, in theory, should beat a team like the Wizards, though not just because they were ahead in the standings while both now are tied …

Jan 12

Joakim Noah’s play is an eloquent testimony to his game, and it was once again Saturday as Noah’s 13 fourth quarter points saved the Bulls from blowing a double digit lead and led the Bulls to their fifth consecutive win and eighth in the last 10 with a 103-97 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats.

“Big baskets, big rebounds, blocks. (Noah) …
