Cotton Fitzsimmons, the longtime NBA coach, used to stroll into the locker room after a game like the Bulls had Sunday in being dominated by the Oklahoma City Thunder 92-78.

Cotton would walk into the toilet area and flush them all, the roaring echoing throughout the quiet of his somber players. The message was clear: We played like crap, but …

Well, there goes home-court advantage in the NBA Finals. Of course, there goes the Finals if the Bulls play like they did Sunday in a 92-78 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

But don’t always believe what you read. This one could have been by 50 in favor of the Thunder as they basically pulled their team late in the …

It’s not exactly the most salient element of Sunday’s national TV Bulls game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. But both the Bulls with Joakim Noah and the Thunder with Russell Westbrook have players who mimic old West six shooters when they do something special.

It’s likely we’ll get to see them much more from Westbrook.

“They are really good. It …

The Bulls’ 83-71 win over the Detroit Pistons Friday is one of those NBA games that might be termed ugly for relatively poor shooting by both teams, few fast breaks, five of 23 on threes combined by both teams and limited enthusiasm from the home crowd as the Bulls didn’t trail after the first quarter.

But the game was really …

Is this 2011-12 Bulls team the second best in franchise history?

I assume they are not, since after losing badly at home to the fighting-for-the-playoffs Denver Nuggets Monday in the wake of a pair of fortunate wins over the barely trying Toronto Raptors, we pretty much decided these aren’t the best of times nor really an age of wisdom for …

So let’s take a look at the matchups between the team with the league’s best record, the Bulls, and the Denver Nuggets, who are tied for the last playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Denver has Ty Lawson and Arron Afflalo in the backcourt compared with C.J. Watson and Ronnie Brewer. So make that huge edge for the Nuggets as …

With Derrick Rose sidelined Monday for a seventh straight game, Nuggets coach George Karl was asked about the difference in facing the Bulls without the reigning NBA MVP.

“I don’t think they look much different,” said Karl. “They just don’t have one of the top three point guards in basketball running and controlling their offense at the end of games. …

Basketball is a pretty simple game. Figure your team is tired, trailing by eight with about 10 minutes left, a little underwhelmed by the opposition and still without the league MVP and its starting backcourt while playing a league most 26th road game.

So you dig in a bit on defense. And hope John Lucas III and Kyle Korver can …

It really was historic stuff for the Bulls in their 85-59 domination of the Orlando Magic Monday. Sure, there was the official history of Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau setting the alltime NBA record for fastest to 100 victories in his 130th game as Bulls coach.

“I think it speaks to the job he’s done,” said Magic coach Stan Van Gundy. …

The C.J. is for Charles Jr. I looked it up for the first time after the Bulls’ 89-80 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers Saturday night in which Watson led the Bulls with 20 points and four of eight three pointers.

I’m getting the feeling the way things are going we better get to know Watson a little better as he …
