  1. Video: Hawks Josh Smith with best ally-oop of playoffs

    May 13, 2011, 8:49 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    This was the one Hawks highlight from Thursday night. There wasn’t much to smile about in Atlanta as the Hawks were thumped and knocked out of the playoffs by the Bulls. But there was one highlight in the Highlight Factory. Josh Smith can just flat out get up there. Enjoy. And when you think of…

  2. NBA Playoffs: Bulls bounce Hawks, will need more from Boozer vs. Heat

    May 13, 2011, 12:01 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Chicago’s Game 6 dominance was in no way a surprise. Though Atlanta has played effective basketball at various points during this series, games like this one fall in line with the initial assessments of the Bulls’ superiority. The Hawks exceeded most projections of their playoff performance, but their postseason success didn’t change the fact that…

  3. Hawks’ Smith defends his jump shooting ways (he’s wrong)

    May 10, 2011, 2:23 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Josh Smith hears your complaints Atlanta. He hears the groans in Phillips Arena every time he goes up for a jumpshot outside of five feet. And he wants you to know he things you’re wrong, he told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “I’ve been a pretty good perimeter shooter this whole season. If people have been…

  4. Video: Derrick Rose follows his own shot

    May 9, 2011, 8:53 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Phoenix Suns

    Let this be a lesson for you young basketball players out there — there is a reason coaches say to follow your shot. Reasons like this, when Derrick Rose follows his own shot for the amazing put-back slam. Another stunning play from the MVP. Don’t try this at home, he’s a trained professional. It wasn’t…

  5. NBA Playoffs: Hawks big men show up and tie series

    May 9, 2011, 12:43 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    When you watch the Atlanta Hawks move the ball like that, get the ball in the paint like that, see their big men take over like that and you wonder why you don’t see this version of the Hawks every night. It has to frustrate the Hawks fans. But Hawks fans will take their arrival.…

  6. NBA Playoffs: Hawks Horford needs to outplay his college teammate

    May 8, 2011, 4:33 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    When they came out of Florida, Al Horford was considered a better prospect than Joakim Noah. And with good reason, Horford has been the better all-around player as a pro — an All-Star with offensive game inside and out plus he is a quality defender (one of the better help rotating bigs around). But this…

  7. Video: Watch Derrick Rose shred the Atlanta Hawks

    May 7, 2011, 8:29 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    What Derrick Rose did Friday night to the Atlanta Hawks is illegal in 14 states. He showed why he was named MVP. He showed why the Hawks were always going to be in a lot of trouble in this series, because they had nobody who could stop Rose. (Well, that and the Hawks were going…

  8. What are the Atlanta Hawks doing right?

    May 6, 2011, 1:23 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Among the bouquet of surprises in this most unpredictable of NBA playoffs, the one that gets me: The Atlanta Hawks are good. I mean playoff good. They’ve been regular season good for a few years now, but when the lights got brighter, the teams better and the defenses more focused the Hawks were not a…

  9. Hawks Drew has issue with Smith’s shot selection. Now?

    May 6, 2011, 10:07 AM EDT

    Josh Smith of the Atlanta  Hawks walks off the court against the Chicago Bulls during the second half of Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference second round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    In the first half and the start of the third quarter, Atlanta’s Josh Smith was firing away jump shots — and he was 0-for-6 from beyond 16 feet. He made up for that with four turnovers. All that frustrated coach Larry Drew, who saw that as playing into the hands of the Bulls defense, he…

  10. Bulls coach Thibodeau sticks up for Carlos Boozer

    May 5, 2011, 9:48 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer, Jeff Teague

    No, the Bulls fans were not saying “Booooooo-zer.” (Nor were they saying “Boo-erns.”) But after Joakim Noah stuck up for him, Tom Thibodeau did after practice, according to the Chicago Tribune. “We need him out there,” Thibodeau said of Boozer after Thursday’s brief practice at the Berto Center. “His rebounding is critical for us. Post…

  11. Noah wants Bulls fans to stop booing Carlos Boozer

    May 5, 2011, 10:23 AM EDT

    Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer

    Every fan base has a whipping boy. Some player who for reasons real and imagined becomes the lightning rod of all fan frustration. Carlos Boozer has become that in Chicago. The guy who is expected to be the second option on the Bulls offense is limping around with turf toe and is averaging just 10.3…

  12. NBA Playoffs: Hawks give Bulls a run for their money on the boards

    May 4, 2011, 7:47 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer, Damien Wilkins, Al Horford

    In their Game 1 victory, the Atlanta Hawks pulled off a hell of a trick: not only did they completely negate one of the Chicago Bulls’ greatest advantages, but they did so in a way that flew completely under the radar. Sure, they bothered Derrick Rose and limited Carlos Boozer. They also took away Chicago’s…

  13. Report: MRI shows Grade 2 sprain on Derrick Rose’s ankle

    May 3, 2011, 2:54 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Pulling a page from the hockey playoffs playbook — Injury? What injury? — the Chicago Bulls did do an MRI on Derrick Rose’s left ankle (they denied they would) after he aggravated it Monday night on the final play of the Bulls loss to the Hawks. And the news isn’t good according to David Kaplan…

  14. X-rays negative on Derrick Rose’s ankle, but injury matters

    May 3, 2011, 12:06 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    The good news is Derrick Rose’s left ankle is no worse than it was last time. The bad news is that he has not been quite the same since he injured it last time and it really hit home with Chicago in its Game 1 loss. X-rays on Rose’s ankle were negative and no MRI is…

  15. Hawks leave tickets for Jameer Nelson to see Derrick Rose

    May 3, 2011, 10:40 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    In a game the final week of the season, when the Chicago Bulls beat the Orlando Magic, Derrick Rose was doing the standard, cliché-filled post-game television interview when Jameer Nelson interrupted to congratulate him. The exchange included Nelson telling Rose “see you in the second round.” Except, the Magic never got to the second round,…

  16. NBA Playoffs: Atlanta shocks Chicago in Game 1

    May 3, 2011, 2:09 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson, Jeff Teague

    It’s time to go back to the drawing board, NBA world. These Atlanta Hawks apparently aren’t ready to crumble under the Chicago Bulls’ might just yet, as the underdog club — predicted by most to win but a single game in this series (or less), and predicted by yours truly to be overrun by Derrick…

  17. Derrick Rose injures ankle on final play of game

    May 2, 2011, 11:51 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    Seriously, there is a time — and a reason — to back off a little when the game is over. Soon to be MVP Derrick Rose showed why Tuesday night. Rose rolled his ankle on the final, meaningless possession of the Bulls 103-95 loss to the Hawks Tuesday. With seven seconds left and the Hawks…

  18. What turf toe? Boozer to play in Game 1 against Hawks.

    May 2, 2011, 1:26 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    Turf toe hurts. A lot. But Carlos Boozer plans to play through it and will be on the court when the Bulls start their second round playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks Monday night at the United Center. That according to Aggrey Sam with CSN Chicago. “The toe is feeling a lot better. I’ve got…

    Apr 29, 2011, 2:34 AM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 7:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Now we get serious. Indiana, New Orleans and Portland made things interesting. The Knicks were entertaining. But now we get down to business. Now we are down to the eight best teams in the NBA and now contenders have to start facing off. Now everything gets more intense. Here are our previews for the second…

    SEASON RECORDS Bulls: 62-20 (No. 1 seed in East) Hawks: 44-38(No. 5 seed) SEASON SERIES Bulls 2-1, all three games took place in a three-week span in March. The Hawks win was by three points at home, the Bulls two wins (one at home, one on the road) were by 18 and 33 points. PLAYOFF…

  21. NBA Playoffs: Atlanta wins ugly, but moves on to the second round

    Apr 29, 2011, 1:23 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    In all honesty, I would never wish repeat viewing of the Atlanta Hawks’ series-clinching victory over the Orlando Magic on my worst enemy. The on-court product was brutal. Neither team could convert any of their shots, the turnovers were many, and the execution on the whole was fairly awful. Atlanta’s 39.2 percent shooting from the…
