Derrick Rose has missed more games this season than in his previous three seasons combined, and he’ll probably miss his 10th game Saturday when the Bulls host the New Jersey Nets.
Richard Hamilton, who was expected to take the offensive pressure off Rose, has played in just 11 of the 32 games.

The Bulls are 23-6 after Friday’s again dominating win over the Charlotte Bobcats, this time 95-64, the Bulls’ league record fourth consecutive road victory by at least 20 points.
They have the best record in the NBA, and the toughest part, at least in the regular season, may be behind them now.
“We’re coming out with a better mindset, focused, …

It’s national TV; last season’s Eastern Conference finalists; the team with the best record in the conference, the Bulls; against the team most expect to win the NBA title, the Miami Heat.

The Bulls rather easily, never …
