The last time the Bulls lost three straight regular-season games, Vinny Del Negro coached them and Tom Thibodeau prowled the sidelines as Doc Rivers' right-hand man in Boston.
How fitting, then, that Rivers brought his Celtics to the United Center...

The Bulls couldn’t hit from the floor and couldn’t hit from the free-throw line. What else you got? Nerf basketball, anyone?
Derrick Rose was bad. Carlos Boozer was awful. Luol Deng was useless in the second half. Everybody else followed....

In the end, it’s a loss. Close, exciting, a gritty showing by a Bulls team with a hobbled Derrick Rose, yeah.
But still a loss.
A loss that goes back to the first half, the worst half the Bulls have played in this series.
You’d think the...

The Bulls played 82 games to claim homecourt advantage, and then spent 45 minutes of their first playoff game against Indiana on Saturday trying to give it away.
For all the world it looked like the Bulls were collapsing under the burden of capturing the...

Tom Thibodeau said the Bulls have to play to their strengths, and I’m wondering, do they have any left?
After that miserable Game 2 of the Bulls’ playoff series with Philadelphia, Luol Deng repeatedly said “Derrick’s not here,&...

So, I’m reading that Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer will have to put up another combined game of 40-plus points and 20-plus rebounds if the Bulls are going to win Game 6 in Philadelphia on Thursday night to force a deciding game at home.

Derrick Rose fell apart at the end. The Bulls fell apart in the fourth quarter. That’s the Twitter version of how the Bulls’ playoff series with Atlanta is tied at two.
That’s what’s really disconcerting about Atlanta’s 100-...

As the Bulls prepare to end the Atlanta Hawks’ season in the next week or so, I’m still not sure which helps the Bulls more:
The Hawks with Kirk Hinrich too injured to play or the Bulls with Carlos Boozer too injured to play?

Derrick Rose looked like he was so hating the MVP trophy presentation before Game 2 of the Bulls’ playoff series against the Hawks. He appeared to be hoping Commissioner David Stern would shut up already so he he could play. So he could avenge...

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau probably will hammer his team for allowing 73 points. Heck, he’d hammer his players for allowing two.
But quick, someone tell the coach his Bulls played as brilliant a game as you could ask for in ending Atlanta’s...

Now the Bulls know what great looks like when great is required.
The Bulls put together a great regular season. They played hard every game. They played good or great a majority of those nights.
But great matters in the playoffs.
Great matters in the...

Some things to keep an eye on when the Lakers play at Sacramento on the second day of a three-game stretch....
