The narrative from the Bulls’ side in Friday’s 104-94 Miami Heat victory that gave them a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal is going to be a star driven inequity that is making winning more difficult for the Bulls.

“I see how things are going,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau offered cryptically after Miami broke from a 77-77 game after …

If the Bulls have a slogan for this season, it might be, “Don’t mind me, I’m just over here bleeding.”

The Bulls trudged back to Chicago for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Friday against the Miami Heat in the United Center as perhaps the least euphoric team to have taken away home court advantage.

That maybe was less …

The Miami Heat came out in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Monday against the Bulls like they often do, posing and preening like they are at a fashion show, offended anyone would dare challenge them, whining and complaining about the temerity of the Bulls taking a 1-0 lead.

By Wednesday, it was obvious the beaten up Bulls had …

It seemed to Jimmy Butler that life in the NBA was his life all over again, ignored and rejected as a child back in Texas, overlooked by all the big basketball schools when he so much wanted to play, secondary at Marquette as a backup role player when he arrived and then watching, watching, watching all the time even as …

I don’t think the Bulls can beat the Miami Heat in the conference semifinals, but anyone makes a mistake discounting what the Bulls can accomplish no matter how great the odds.

“We’re excited for the challenge of playing against the best team,” Joakim Noah was saying late Saturday night amid the intoxicating aroma of Game 7 victory in Brooklyn.

It …

It’s much more difficult to gauge matchups for a playoff series when even your team doesn’t know who is playing. The Bulls closed out the Nets Saturday without Kirk Hinrich, who gave it a try pregame and couldn’t go, and Luol Deng, who at least got out of the hospital. The hope is Deng will be able to get back …

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 …

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 …

We know Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau isn’t exactly Mr. Happy, though he does enjoy the occasional guffaw when someone reverses the pinch post action in the triangle offense.

But it was a very somber Thibodeau late Thursday night in the United Center, grimly breaking down Game 3 of the Bulls/Nets series.

“We had a hard time scoring,” Thibodeau lamented. “They …

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.…
