The Thunder is coming; the Thunder is coming.

“Two of the top players in the league,” the Bulls’ version of Paul Revere, coach Fred Hoiberg, acknowledged Wednesday about Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. “Those two guys against Orlando go for 48 and 41.

On Halloween eve in Auburn Hills Friday, the Bulls and Detroit Pistons dressed in very clever costumes that made them look like the greatest athletes in the world. It was a heck of a disguise.

“We came out lackadaisical,” said Jimmy Butler. “Can’t happen. Not in this league. Every team, especially on the road, you are going to get their …

The 2015 NBA All-Star game Sunday in New York City brings with it some of the best visual delights the game can offer with the defending league MVPs in LeBron James and Kevin Durant, the special shooting and panache of Stephen Curry and James Harden and the veteran savvy of Tim Duncan and Chris Paul.

It was the first game for Pau Gasol after he was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2008. Gasol took a pass, spun and put the ball in smoothly. Kobe Bryant lit up. As he ran back on defense, he yelled to coach Phil Jackson, “We’ve got a big man.”

And so do the Bulls, who got one of …
