Winners of a season-high seven games in a row and now a season-best 15 games over .500, it’s easy to see why Bulls players are having fun with just three regular season games remaining.

“It’s always fun when you’re playing basketball,” said Bulls guard Jimmy Butler on Friday, prior to his team’s 106-98 win over the Pistons. “But I feel …

How does that slogan go about the NBA playoffs? Forty days and forty nights? No, that’s the Noah movie. And no, there’s not a movie about Joakim Noah, who had yet another triple-double Wednesday in the Bulls’ 102-87 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Not yet, anyway. Come see our big, sweaty ballerinas? No, that’s not it.

It’s that you want …

In two seasons with the Bulls from 2010-12, Ronnie Brewer developed a reputation as a hardworking, team-first player with strong defensive abilities who added to the roster’s depth.

Those are some of the main reasons the Bulls on Monday signed Brewer for the remainder of the season.

There’s ice and there’s electrical stim and there’s massage and there’s ultrasound and there’s heat and manual therapy and soft tissue and joint work and muscle relaxation and all the conventional remedies for treating injuries.

The Knicks are supposed to be the second best team in the Eastern Conference, even beyond their 23-13 runner up record to the Miami Heat. The Bulls Friday in New York defeated the Knicks 108-101 for the third consecutive time this season, and in a game Knicks’ players have been saying they had circled after the beating they took from …

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 …

Back in Brooklyn, we used to call them “the M&M Boys.” They weren’t actually beloved by all, but we respected them. The Dodgers and Giants had left and the Mets hadn’t come yet. So it was M&M, Mantle and Maris, making the big plays when they were needed.

They’re not likely to be as celebrated, and certainly not in Brooklyn. …

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 …

If Thursday on TNT’s national TV and in the United Center was an assessment for the Bulls against the Western champion Oklahoma City Thunder, the Bulls may be better than anticipated but not as good as they hope they can be.

“We were right there in the game,” said Luol Deng, who carried the offense with 27 points, including two …
