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.

We’ll hear all the same stuff for the length of this Eastern Conference finals series between the Bulls and Miami Heat which is now tied 1-1 with Miami’s 85-75 victory on Tuesday.

I recall the time he was firing away in that playoff loss to the Boston Celtics, that nine of 30 shooting game in an 11-point loss. There was that 13 of 30 game when his Bulls lost to the Knicks in that playoff game and later in that same playoffs a wild 10-29 night in a win over the Pistons, …
