As Derrick Rose lay grimacing in pain on the United Center floor for several excruciating minutes Saturday, the fans in the crowd of 21,943 who weren't hyperventilating shouted encouragement. "M-V-P! M-V-P!" the chants rang. The louder the chorus...
PHILADELPHIA — As C.J. Watson's desperation, three-quarter-court heave at the buzzer bounced off the back of the rim Thursday night to clinch a 79-78 victory and the series for the 76ers, harsh reality hit before the ball landed. Mercilessly, a...
One of the best NBA analysts in recent memory keeps saying things that convince me the Bulls have gotten inside the heads of the 76ers. His name is Doug Collins. The more the 76ers coach with the gift of gab talks, the less I believe his team can...
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. Yes. Well....

PHILADELPHIA —Allen Iverson made an appearance on the floor before the game, cupping his ear and hugging and high-fivin' his way to center court to deliver the gameball. Julius Erving, sitting in a suite, made a towel-waving cameo on the video...

The Miami Heat are going to win the NBA's Eastern Conference title. So, in a sense, the Game 7 being played at TD Garden tonight between the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics may be one of the most anti-climatic, series-deciding games in either...

Not that long ago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau stood at a podium after a rare lousy performance and implored players in his own inimitable way. "Do. Your. Job.'' Thibodeau barked in his baritone voice April 16 after the Bulls lost at home to the Wizards....
Derrick Rose drew a standing ovation from the United Center crowd as he hobbled to midcourt to present the game ball to the officials. Rose, of course, would rather being giving the ball to Carlos Boozer for an easy basket, but not even the magical kid...
