It felt like Bulls/Knicks Friday all over again when it really mattered. When Michael Jordan was in the face of Xavier McDaniel when he was bullying Scottie Pippen. When Pippen was dunking and stepping over a supine Patrick Ewing and then screaming invective at Spike Lee. John Starks dunking on Jordan and then Jordan, Pippen and Horace Grant stuffing Charles …

Maybe Saturday’s Bulls 93-85 victory over the East leading New York Knicks wasn’t quite as good as it gets, but it was as good as it’s been this season for the Bulls.

Not only was it just the second victory over a team with a winning record. But it was the team coming off a blowout win in Miami and …

It was the talk of the offseason in the NBA, the incredible accumulation of talent in Los Angeles. The Bulls Saturday get a look at it, yes, when they play….the Clippers?

“We have a chance,” former Bull and Clippers leading scorer Jamal Crawford was saying after Clippers practice Friday. “This is one of the best teams in the league, honestly. …

We know the Lakers are not going to win 70 games. But what about the Bulls?

It’s 2-0 now with Friday’s dominating 115-86 win in Cleveland. And it’s now five consecutive home games ahead with the Hornets Saturday, without rookie sensation Anthony Davis after he suffered a mild concussion Friday, rebuilding Orlando Tuesday and then a national TNT game against …

I’ll admit I had trouble with that sneaker commercial some years back that referenced Dwyane Wade. You remember: Fall seven times, stand up eight.

How, after all, was he getting up that eighth time when he hadn’t fallen yet? I probably should have consulted Phil Jackson, given the apparent Zen interpretation of struggles that require resilience and perseverance. And that …

Derrick Rose could possibly play Thursday against the Boston Celtics, though I personally doubt he will. And there’s apparently no misunderstanding between the Bulls and coach Tom Thibodeau regarding the discussions on Thibodeau’s future with the team.

Those were some of the issues that Bulls General Manager Gar Forman addressed before a private team fundraising auction and dinner at the …

Who knew March NBA Coach of the Month Tom Thibodeau also was an amateur theologian? Though perhaps that’s what happens when you lose a second game in a row for the first time in almost 14 months, which the Bulls did Monday in a 99-93 loss to the Houston Rockets.

Although Richard Hamilton returned from his shoulder injury to start …

The Bulls’ 83-71 win over the Detroit Pistons Friday is one of those NBA games that might be termed ugly for relatively poor shooting by both teams, few fast breaks, five of 23 on threes combined by both teams and limited enthusiasm from the home crowd as the Bulls didn’t trail after the first quarter.

But the game was really …

The C.J. is for Charles Jr. I looked it up for the first time after the Bulls’ 89-80 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers Saturday night in which Watson led the Bulls with 20 points and four of eight three pointers.

I’m getting the feeling the way things are going we better get to know Watson a little better as he …

Late Tuesday afternoon, Derrick Rose was rear-ended by a Saturn. Later that evening, the Miami Heat felt like they had rings run around them in an overtime loss to the Orlando Magic.

Welcome to the next chapter of the battle for the Eastern Conference universe Wednesday at the United Center. The Miami Heat are already moaning about having to play …
