Maybe it was Nazr Mohammed’s halftime speech, a stem winder after the Bulls trailed Miami 51-32 and shot three of 24 in the second quarter. “Nazr, he really chewed us out,” said Taj Gibson, who had all three second quarter scores. Maybe it was Derrick Rose in his second game back from knee surgery with a dozen points and drawing …

Derrick Rose Wednesday returned from knee surgery and a six-week absence and had an encouraging bounce in his step. The Bulls, well, they didn’t look quite as energized in a 105-103 loss to the Orlando Magic.

“Tough loss, bad loss on our part because it’s a game we needed, a game we should have wanted 100 million times more than …

It wasn’t looking like the greatest night in a great season for Pau Gasol even as Gasol was recording his 50th double/double of the season Friday, the first Bull to do so since Charles Oakley in 1986-87.

The Bulls had blown basically all of a 16-point lead to the Pistons—much as they’d blown a 19-point lead to Detroit two weeks …

It’s not difficult to know you’re having a bad day, like the Bulls did Wednesday in a 95-91 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

You could swear the invitation said casual, or you could find yourself with maybe 5-10 Aaron Brooks trying to defend 6-6 Michael Carter-Williams, who would lead the Bucks with 21 points, including 15 consecutive in the second …

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, …

Mar 19

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 …

Mar 15

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 …
