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 …

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 …

The Bulls’ face of frustration Thursday in their mostly one sided 99-89 home loss to the Portland Trail Blazers was wearing a pony tail.

“We got smacked; we got smacked,” Joakim Noah said in clipped comments after the game.

Asked what the team could do differently, Noah was direct: “I don’t know.

“It’s disappointing, it’s really disappointing,” he said. “It’s …

Well, at least no one asked about Derrick Rose for a change.

Because in the Bulls’ 119-118 overtime loss to the Denver Nuggets Monday there is likely to have been some history made. No, not necessarily the Nuggets’ 12th consecutive win, or Nate Robinson’s season high-34 points or Joakim Noah burnishing his possible Defensive Player of the Year credentials and …
