Really, who are these guys, these Bulls who somehow Thursday on national TNT came back from a 16-point deficit to beat the Brooklyn Nets 92-90?

You know, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.”
And what more appropriate place these days than the nation’s capital?
With Joakim Noah, Marco Belinelli, Richard Hamilton …

Sometimes the other guy is just too good and he gets you as Dirk Nowitzki did to the Bulls Saturday with a phenomenal shooting performance, 14 of 17 mostly tough shots for 35 points in an unlikely 100-98 Dallas Mavericks comeback win.
“Contested, off balance, off one leg,” muttered a dejected Jimmy Butler. “He’s a really hard person to guard. …

With an 82-game schedule that usually doesn’t provide more than a day or two in between contests, the NBA season rarely allows teams to enjoy any one particular victory for too long.
So it’s easy to understand why neither Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau or his team are spending much time basking in the glow of Wednesday night’s victory over the …

After missing the last two games with a sore right knee, Heat guard Dwyane Wade will return to action on Wednesday when Miami takes on the Chicago Bulls at the United Center.
“I think I’m going to give it a go,” said Wade following the team’s shootaround at the arena. “I’ll get back out there, play, and see how I …

As they have all season, the Chicago Bulls remain focused on winning the next game on the schedule.
It just so happens that on Wednesday, the opponent comes in the form of LeBron James and the Miami Heat, winners of 27 games in a row.
Following the team’s practice Tuesday at the Berto Center, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau downplayed the …

The Bulls Sunday night won their second consecutive game, 104-97 over the Minnesota Timberwolves, after having lost 14 of their previous 24.
The Miami Heat Sunday won their 26th consecutive game.
The Bulls have Jimmy Butler, who started for the injured Marco Belinelli at shooting guard, and had 20 points, nine rebounds and three steals. The Heat has Dwyane Wade, …

With the Bulls’ gritty 87-84 victory over the Indiana Pacers Saturday at the United Center, I’m reminded of history, of Thomas Jefferson and the Declaration of Independence.
Stay with me here.
Jefferson famously wrote about everyone being equal, though conveniently forgetting about one population group. And while I assume Jefferson wasn’t looking ahead to this season’s Eastern Conference, though he …
