The Bulls, especially coach Tom Thibodeau, do not like to talk about games being crucial or vital, especially this early in the season. But when Chicago visits the Indiana Pacers Wednesday, it’s something of a showdown given Indiana’s undefeated start and that the Bulls and Pacers are considered rivals for the defending champion Miami Heat.
“For us getting off to …

Probably someone in this stats infested sports world measures it, though I haven’t seen it yet. But the Bulls probably just completed the best ever 45-win regular season with a second round playoff loss.
Of course, they knew they’d be missing for part, and it turned out all, their best player and a former league MVP, Derrick Rose. But then …

The Bulls aren’t whole quite yet, but they are getting closer.
No, Derrick Rose wasn’t scheduled to play against the Orlando Magic Monday. And neither was Vladimir Radmanovic.
But Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson were due to play as the Bulls were able to put out a rotation as complete as any time this season.
In the shadow of Disney …

If this Bulls/Detroit Pistons series of recent years becomes a TV show, perhaps they can call it “Eighteen is Enough” as the Pistons Sunday finally ended the Bulls 18-game winning streak with a mostly unremarkable 99-85 victory.
And if this Bulls regular season should get TV treatment, perhaps it becomes “Thirteen is Enough,” which is the number of different starting …

The Bulls very much enjoyed their trip to Brooklyn the other night with a last minute win over the Brooklyn Nets. And with Friday’s 87-86 victory against the Orlando Magic, it looks like the Bulls could be going back very soon to America’s favorite community where the answer to “Do you have the time?” is, “So what are you lookin’ …

Really, who are these guys, these Bulls who somehow Thursday on national TNT came back from a 16-point deficit to beat the Brooklyn Nets 92-90?
I know Nazr Mohammed, but he’s no Joakim Noah. Yet Mohammed, who had 20 DNPs by All-Star break, played 36 minutes for the injured Noah, almost doubled the rebounds of Nets All-Star center Brook Lopez, …

Taj Gibson took a walk in Derrick Rose’s shoes the other day, and it didn’t feel too comfortable.
“You have people saying you shouldn’t have come back so soon, be careful. You’ve got so many different aspects of people in your ear giving you so many different opinions of what they think you should do,” Gibson said Thursday morning as …

There’s the luck of the Irish, and then there’s Murphy’s Law, which is basically what’s been happening to the Bulls of late, the latest in Tuesday’s 90-86 loss to the Washington Wizards.
You know, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.”
And what more appropriate place these days than the nation’s capital?
With Joakim Noah, Marco Belinelli, Richard Hamilton …

Bulls fans, you can open your eyes again.
“Win or lose,” Joakim Noah was saying in a relaxed Bulls locker room late Friday night after a dominating 113-95 victory over the Golden State Warriors, “that was the best we’ve played in a long time.”
Probably, and shockingly given recent events and a 42-point loss in Sacramento Wednesday, that was one …

I have learned in life that before you criticize someone — and the Bulls probably deserve their share after their shockingly poor effort Wednesday in a 121-79 loss to statistically the worst defensive team in the NBA, the Sacramento Kings — you need to walk a mile in their shoes.
That’s advisable, by the way, because then when you criticize …
