Joakim Noah has always been a team first kind of guy.

Earlier this season, for example, his name started to be mentioned in the MVP conversation. No one thought he would jump past the likes of Kevin Durant or LeBron James to win the award, but he belonged in the discussion and that in itself was significant.

No more Bulls home court advantage with Washington’s 102-93 victory in Game 1 of the playoffs Sunday! Outplayed down the stretch and outrebounded! Again! If Nene means baby, the Bulls need a bigger pacifier! I’m not even close to being out of exclamation points!

Winning a best of seven series in the NBA Playoffs can often come down to making adjustments, particularly when you have a fourth seed meeting a fifth seed, as is the case with the Bulls and Wizards.

It’s a tired cliché to match sports teams with the images of their cities. As blue collar as Chicago likes to consider itself, it’s one of the great finance capitals of the world. And as sophisticated as Washington would like to be, there are as many working peoples’ areas as in Chicago.

Though when the Bulls open the 2014 playoffs …

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau understands that two significant points of emphasis in the NBA playoffs are being prepared and knowing your opponent well.

Fortunately for his team, those are two of his biggest strengths. Furthermore, Thibodeau’s step-by-step approach is not about to change as his team gets ready for Game 1 against the Washington Wizards on Sunday night.

“It’s one …

The Bulls and Wizards played just three times this season with the Wizards winning two. Both of those wins were in January, shortly after the Bulls traded Luol Deng. Though the Bulls were playing well in that stretch with seven wins in nine games, both losses were to Washington, which had Nene playing at the time. Nene suffered a knee …

If the Bulls could have dreamed up the pairings for the NBA playoffs starting this weekend, it likely would have come out something like it has with the Bulls opening at home Sunday against the Washington Wizards.

The Bulls with Wednesday’s regular season ending 91-86 overtime loss to the Charlotte Bobcats fell to the No. 4 seed in the Eastern …
