Bulls/Knicks is not what it once was, though anyone and Knicks really isn’t anymore as the Bulls Saturday in a relaxed 111-80 victory delivered the Knicks a franchise record 60th loss and ninth in the last 11 against the Bulls.

If there was a word to sum up Saturday night in the United Center it was “wave,” as in less-than-tense …

So who is this guy, this Nikola Mirotic, who basically has saved the Bulls for the last month? Enough so they’ve remained in place, playing around .500 ball with Taj Gibson returning last week from injury and Jimmy Butler Monday in the Bulls 98-86 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.

The Bulls officially clinched a playoff spot and at 43-29 moved …

The Bulls know bad times in Detroit. Though not against Joel Anthony, Spencer Dinwiddle, Caron Butler and Reggie Jackson. Yet, it was against those guys Saturday the Bulls lost a 19-point third quarter lead in losing 107-91 to the Pistons.

Remember back some 30 years ago when the American car industry began to run out of fuel? You’d buy a …

You witness a game like the Bulls’ Friday 108-92 dismantling of the Toronto Raptors and you begin to fantasize again, after all the injuries and the infighting and the rotations and lineups and losing streaks that maybe, just maybe.

“It’s not about one person,” said Joakim Noah, who directed the Bulls offense wonderfully with a career best equaling 14 assists, …

Nikola Mirotic, who patiently did interviews for about a half hour in three languages Wednesday following the Bulls 103-86 victory over the Indiana Pacers, doesn’t always find the appropriate English word for the media.

It seemed so when Mirotic was asked to discuss leading the Bulls in scoring yet again, this time with 25 points, 20 in the second half …

At this rate, it’s going to be difficult for the Bulls to be in good position in their regional.

Oh, right. These were the big guys. But maybe it was the 33 rebounds for the Bulls Sunday against 52 for the Oklahoma City Thunder in a 109-100 Thunder victory that made it seem a bit like the Bulls were kids …

The NBA season is often called a marathon. If it actually were, the Bulls would be approaching 22 miles and about to pass out. What to do? Push on and perhaps fail miserably at the finish? Or slow down, take a look around at others trying to regain their strength and realize you want to come bursting across that finish …

And then there were four….

Regulars out for the Bulls, three starters and their top sixth man as Joakim Noah hobbled into Philadelphia as well, sitting out Wednesday’s Bulls game with the 76ers. You almost expected the Bulls to march into the historic onetime American capital with fife and drum and bandages around their heads, like the iconic spirit of …

The house isn’t exactly perfect; there are a few holes, but they can be repaired. You’re hammering away and then you slip off the ladder, grabbing for an edge and holding on until help comes. Say hello to your March 2015 Chicago Bulls. Hang on, fellas.

“We’re battling,” said Pau Gasol after the Bulls fell away in the last few …

How’s that saying go this time of year about the Spurs springing ahead and the Bulls falling back?

It was something like that Sunday as the day lasted too long for the Bulls as they trailed the defending champions for all but a few seconds in the first minute of the game and lost 116-105.

The defeat left the Bulls …
