It was the kind of game Tuesday night in which no one would have been surprised if the Bulls players suspended themselves.
They certainly suspended their effort, energy and enthusiasm in a 102-88 surrender to the Orlando Magic, a team its own coach...

Happy days are here again?
It sure looked that way Wednesday night as the dark cloud hanging over the Bulls after almost a week of controversy and losses cleared with a 126-96 rout of the Miami Heat despite the return of Shaquille O'Neal.

Did you hear the one about the NBA team that started a stretch of six of seven home games Friday night at the United Center, a prime opportunity to make up lost ground and turn negative headlines into positive ones?
"I've been addressing a lot of...

Ben Gordon's logic sounded so simple, although simple hasn't been used in the same sentence with the Bulls too often this season.
"A lot of the wins we've had against the Pistons are because we've made big plays at the end of games," Gordon said. "If...

You know Ben Gordon can score. But did you know he likes peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches?

I recall that at the time of the Tyson Chandler trade, many people predicted that the Bulls would regret getting Wallace in a year or two. He was already slipping. Also, obtaining Wallace did not mean the Bulls had to give away Tyson Chandler for almost...

The notion might seem far-fetched, but perhaps injuries finally can do what losing, a coach's firing and consistent booing from the home crowd has not.
Playing without the injured Luol Deng, Ben Gordon and Chris Duhon, the Bulls at times finally...

A season in which the Bulls talked about winning the Eastern Conference sank to this Friday night:
Demetris Nichols was inserted to kick-start a moribund offense in the fourth quarter of a brutal 90-77 loss to the Bobcats.
Nothing against Nichols, who...

More often than not after Sunday's noon tipoff, the high-flying Suns played like they had one foot still in their hotel beds and one foot on their charter flight back to Phoenix.
Yet holding the Suns to 88 points, their second-lowest output this season...

Here's how short-handed the Bulls are: Viktor Khryapa played first-half minutes.
Here's how bad the Timberwolves are: They lost badly while Khryapa played first-half minutes.
Injured versus inept met Tuesday night at the United Center, and injured...

Tax audits can be more entertaining than what transpired Wednesday night at Target Center. A Thesaurus would have run out of adjectives to describe the action as awful.
Luckily, following the Bulls' dreadful 83-67 loss to the Timberwolves that set new...
