Didn’t we just do this? Hottest team in the league on an historic winning streak in the United Center with a top MVP candidate.

This time Thursday on national TNT it’s the Knicks with 13 consecutive wins and with perhaps the hottest individual player as well in Carmelo Anthony, leading the league in scoring after five straight games of at …

With the NBA season very much in its stretch run, the Bulls will play four out of their remaining five games in the next five days beginning Thursday night.

That’s when the streaking New York Knicks, winners of 13 straight games, will be at the United Center as seeds for the Eastern Conference playoffs begin to take form.

Whether or …

Not that the Bulls should have won Tuesday’s game against the Toronto Raptors with their three best front court defenders, Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and Luol Deng, all out injured and the Raptors leading by double digits every quarter and by 16 points with 8:22 left in the game.

But when Nate Robinson fired up a desperation three pointer from …

It’s been awhile since the Bulls have received any good news on the injury front. But that’s exactly what presented itself on Tuesday evening when coach Tom Thibodeau announced that shooting guard Richard Hamilton would return to action against the Toronto Raptors.

“We’re going to play him tonight,” Thibodeau declared of Hamilton, who came off the bench. “He’s going to …

If this Bulls/Detroit Pistons series of recent years becomes a TV show, perhaps they can call it “Eighteen is Enough” as the Pistons Sunday finally ended the Bulls 18-game winning streak with a mostly unremarkable 99-85 victory.

The Bulls very much enjoyed their trip to Brooklyn the other night with a last minute win over the Brooklyn Nets. And with Friday’s 87-86 victory against the Orlando Magic, it looks like the Bulls could be going back very soon to America’s favorite community where the answer to “Do you have the time?” is, “So what are you lookin’ …

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?

I know Nazr Mohammed, but he’s no Joakim Noah. Yet Mohammed, who had 20 DNPs by All-Star break, played 36 minutes for the injured Noah, almost doubled the rebounds of Nets All-Star center Brook Lopez, …

Taj Gibson took a walk in Derrick Rose’s shoes the other day, and it didn’t feel too comfortable.

“You have people saying you shouldn’t have come back so soon, be careful. You’ve got so many different aspects of people in your ear giving you so many different opinions of what they think you should do,” Gibson said Thursday morning as …

There’s the luck of the Irish, and then there’s Murphy’s Law, which is basically what’s been happening to the Bulls of late, the latest in Tuesday’s 90-86 loss to the Washington Wizards.

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 …

So you have a bad day at work, like the Bulls did Saturday in blowing a 12-point late fourth quarter lead and losing to the Dallas Mavericks on Dirk Nowitzki’s three-pointer.

But then it’s Easter Sunday the next day and you need a break; you need to have some fun and laugh. So you take a trip to NateWorld, like …
