The Bulls Monday lost 107-98 to the Cleveland Cavaliers, their consensus rival for supremacy in the Eastern Conference. There wasn’t all that much to make of the result with LeBron James sitting out almost the last seven minutes, the Bulls’ Jimmy Butler out with a sprained thumb and James and Derrick Rose often playing at different times.

But it was …

The Bulls Sunday in a 101-96 preseason win over the Charlotte Hornets finally began to show their hand for the regular season.

And they deserved a hand, as it were, for a strong finish after blowing a 13-point fourth quarter lead as Derrick Rose showed his old form scoring the team’s last six points and Joakim Noah and Pau Gasol …

Bulls broadcaster Stacey King likes to call Jimmy Butler by the nickname Jimmy Buckets. He may soon have to switch to Jimmy Bucks.

The Bulls shooting guard, who is up for a new contract this month, was money in the Bulls bank Thursday with a buzzer beating three for an 85-84 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.

The Bulls Monday evened their preseason record at 2-2 with a 110-90 victory over the Denver Nuggets in which the Bulls overcame a 21-point first half deficit.

We know the sports axiom that a player doesn’t lose his starting job when he is injured.

Except perhaps if his team needs that player to help stabilize its reserve unit and depth.

Perhaps the Bulls will have more good fortune in the regular season this time.

The Bulls Tuesday lost their second straight preseason game—after going undefeated in last year’s preseason—111-109 in overtime to the Detroit Pistons.

It was played as early preseason games generally are, this time with Joakim Noah missing the game to rest his surgically repaired knee and Derrick …

The Bulls Monday opened the 2014-15 preseason with an 85-81 loss to the Washington Wizards. Though, unofficially, make it 1-0 for the Bulls.

Derrick Rose with 11 points and four assists in just under 14 minutes and one-of-two on threes was the best player on the floor, albeit as little he played and only in the first half.

“I thought …

BARCELONA–Is the Derrick Rose we are seeing in Barcelona the new Derrick Rose as Rose Saturday was scoreless with four assists in about 16 minutes in the USA’s 86-63 win over Mexico? Or really the old Derrick Rose, the Rose we are going to see instead of the Rose we had seen?

Got that?

“Oh hell yeah,” Rose said when …

USA Basketball concluded pool play 5-0 Thursday with a 95-71 victory over Ukraine.

Overall, in the five games Rose shot 25 percent from the field, averaging 5.4 points and 2.4 assists in 17.8 minutes per game.

That’s why the Bulls acquired Pau Gasol and stuck with Taj Gibson, Jimmy Butler and Doug McDermott. It’s why they also lured Nikola Mirotic over from his team in Spain and took a chance on much traveled Aaron Brooks. And also why the Bulls may not be done yet.

Derrick Rose is going to have those kinds of games like …
