The Bulls Saturday defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 91-81 in a significant kind of game. And, no, not because of the 76ers’ 24th consecutive loss, the second longest losing streak in NBA history.

It was yet another game that a Bulls’ team with nascent playoff aspirations was once again outplayed physically, on the boards, for loose balls and generally outhustled.

Moving …

You hate that this is happening to the seemingly decent kids playing for the Philadelphia 76ers, who lost their 22nd consecutive game Wednesday, this time 102-94 to the Bulls.

This 76ers team, which did compete hard, is the basketball version of a train wreck in the making. You can’t bear to look as the crash is coming and you weep …

The Bulls will be watching their national team player when USA Basketball opens play Aug. 30 in the World Cup basketball tournament.

Yes, how will Erik Murphy do?

“There’s nothing like playing for the national team,” said the Bulls seldom used rookie forward as the team prepares to play the Philadelphia 76ers Wednesday. “It’s going to be awesome. I’m really …

The Bulls were right there, trailing the powerful Oklahoma City Thunder by a point with 10 minutes left.

“I thought we were in a good situation,” said Taj Gibson, who led the Bulls with 16 points in their 97-85 loss to Oklahoma City. “It was one of those games you want to take back. It was just one of those …

Tough week? Who says it was a tough week for these Bulls? No stinkin’ tough week for these Bulls and Joakim Noah in a performance Saturday worth its weight in gold.

The heck week concluded with a 94-87 victory over the Sacramento Kings. And this is what Joakim Noah, after 23 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists, five blocks and three …

These are some things I was thinking about during Tuesday’s Bulls/Spurs game: If a mime is arrested, are they told they have the right to start speaking? If I loan someone $20 and never see them again, that has to be money well spent. How do deer know to cross the road by those yellow signs? And if Jimmy cracks …

Winners in six of seven games at home and 11 of 14 overall, it’s been an impressive run for the Chicago Bulls as the stretch run approaches.

While Joakim Noah has garnered some well-deserved national attention with his play, he’s hardly done it alone. Noah is the first to admit as much, so it came as no surprise when he …

Coming off a hard fought, emotional overtime victory against the Miami Heat, a challenge for the Bulls will be to sustain the right mentality and come ready for their next opponent, which happens to be a formidable one.

“It’s not easy,” said Joakim Noah as he and his teammates prepared to host the San Antonio Spurs, owners of the league’s …

Joakim Noah isn’t the best player in the NBA. We know that. Nobody is saying he is. But what exactly is a Most Valuable Player? Someone whose passion, enthusiasm and model inspires an entire team, if not a city? Someone whose will, desire and determination helps a team become more than it is supposed to be and perhaps eventually as …

Before Friday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau went over the Grizzlies plays, as he always does, and his team’s priorities.

Thibodeau drew on a dry erase board, but it might have been a mirror as there is no team in the NBA that more duplicates the Bulls than the Grizzlies, also in the top three in …
