  1. Video: Derrick Rose carving up the Indiana Pacers

    Apr 17, 2011, 8:15 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls' Rose passes ball around Indiana Pacers' Hibbert during Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    The Pacers seemed to knock down every outside shot they took. Yet that was not enough because Derrick Rose went MVP on them. Part of the fun of him is not just the scoring but how he gets there. Oh, just watch for yourself.

  2. NBA Playoffs: Chicago struggles, but Rose comes to the rescue

    Apr 16, 2011, 4:12 PM EST

    Bulls' Rose passes the ball around Pacers' Hibbert during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    The Chicago Bulls finished the regular season with an NBA-best 62 wins. The Indiana Pacers finished the regular season with 37 wins. There was not supposed to be a lot of suspense surrounding the two teams’ first-round matchup. However, nobody told the Pacers they were supposed to go quietly against the Bulls, and the NBA…

  3. This year, can an underdog win the NBA title?

    Apr 16, 2011, 3:25 AM EST

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Bill James, the legendary baseball statistician, has said the problem with the NBA is the best team almost always wins. In baseball, the summer-long 162-game season gives you the best teams in each division, but the best-of-seven playoff series involves a lot of luck and favors hot pitchers and bullpens. In the NFL the playoffs…

  4. Video: Derrick Rose’s best plays of regular season

    Has there been a better show this season than the one Derrick Rose put on? Make your argument for Blake Griffin if you want, but Rose’s show came with a team on its way to the best record in the NBA. That is special. And it’s worth watching his highlights from the regular season. Just…

  5. Video look back at Bulls season

    Apr 15, 2011, 1:30 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Charlotte Bobcats

    Since we’re all about giving the Bulls plenty of love today, why not some video. From the fine folks at CSN Chicago, we have a little video look back and tribute to the Bulls season. Something to get Bulls fans pumped up to… well, not sure you need to be pumped up to beat Indiana.…

  6. With the Bulls, it’s about this year. And the five after that.

    Apr 15, 2011, 12:01 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Chicago Bulls

    This season wasn’t supposed to be about the Bulls. It was about the flash of the Heat and the intensity of the Celtics making one more run. It was about the Lakers out West. The Bulls were going to be good, no doubt, but not good enough. Then they started defending like mad men, executing…

  7. How they win it all — path to the ring for the top seeds

    Apr 14, 2011, 9:22 PM EST

    Lakers Ring Ceremony Basketball

    Boston’s Glen Davis has a great name for it: The Campaign for Champagne. This year more than any other in recent memory, the path to the championship seems open for a number of teams. The Lakers have the last two titles, but they are flawed, inconsistent and often bored. Boston and San Antonio are old, Chicago and…

  8. Chris Bosh sees Boston as tougher test than Chicago

    Apr 14, 2011, 4:43 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh is not alone on this. As we started talking to people around the league in preparation for playoff previews, there are a lot of doubters about the Bulls. Oh, they’re good and everyone knows it. But a lot of people think the Bulls have some things to learn about playoff basketball. Things the…

  9. How they can win it all: The Chicago Bulls

    Apr 14, 2011, 10:05 AM EST

    Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose, Keith Bogans

    Coming into this season, the Heat, The Lakers, and The Celtics were supposed to rule the NBA. After 82 games, the Chicago Bulls are coming into the playoffs with the best record in the league. They don’t have as much championship experience as some of the other top contenders, but they’re talented, young, hungry, and…

  10. NBA Playoff Preview: Chicago vs. Indiana

    SEASON RECORDS Bulls: 62-20 (No. 1 seed in East) Pacers: 37-45 (No. 8 seed) SEASON SERIES Bulls 3-1, with the Pacers winning the most recent when Roy Hibbert and Tyler Hansbrough just took over.

  11. Season’s wild final night shows why playoffs will be must-watch

    Apr 14, 2011, 2:11 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Lakers

    It was the last game on the last night of the regular season — and nobody wanted it to end. Not the  fans in Sacramento, who were loud and would not leave at the end of a wild game. Wild in every way — the shots were wild, the setting was wild,  that this last…

  12. Dates, times set for Eastern Conference playoffs first games

    Apr 13, 2011, 1:16 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    While the West is still trying to figure out who plays whom, the Eastern Conference has moved on to when. At least for the first games. The league has released the dates and times for the first games of those four series. Chicago and Indiana will tip off at noon Saturday (11 a.m. in Chicago)…

    Apr 13, 2011, 11:14 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v New Orleans Hornets

    Keith Bogans tends to take a lot of heat as the Bulls starting shooting guard, but look at the other coaches that gave him big run: Doc Rivers, Gregg Popovich and Stan Van Gundy. Coincidence? Owner Glen Taylor has some tough choices to make in Minnesota. The Raptors ownership/front office situation is a sticky mess.…

  14. Video: Derrick Rose puts on a show out on the breakaway

    Apr 13, 2011, 8:58 AM EST

    Derrick Rose

    Maybe next season we need to start a campaign to have Derrick Rose in the dunk contest. (Maybe we need to start a campaign to say we want the lockout to be over in time for a dunk contest, but that’s another issue). Either way, Rose can throw it down. He got loose in the…

  15. Danny Granger might have been wise not to anger the Bulls

    Apr 11, 2011, 5:43 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Boston Celtics

    There is little hope for Indiana in it’s first round, one-versus-eight matchup against Chicago. The debate is really can they win one game or not. But Pacers star Danny Granger was honest with the Indianapolis Star and in doing so made sure Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau had some bulletin board material to work with. “Boston’s…

  16. NBA Power Rankings: Chicago finishes regular season as No. 1

    Apr 11, 2011, 2:36 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Chicago Bulls

    Our final rankings make for an interesting playoff comparison — the top three come in as the hottest teams going into the playoffs, but the next three more veteran squads. Who do you take when it really matters? (We lean to the second three, but the Bulls may prove us wrong. Again.) 1. Bulls (60-20,…

  17. Playoff seedings: The West is still a mess

    Apr 11, 2011, 8:50 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    In these uncertain times, we know a couple things for sure. We know Chicago will win the Eastern Conference and take on the Indiana Pacers in the first round. We know Orlando will host Atlanta in another first-round matchup. We know the Spurs are the top team in the West. After that, we’ve got no…

  18. Bulls barely, and we mean barely edge Magic without Dwight Howard

    Apr 10, 2011, 4:22 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Orlando Magic

    Bulls 102 Magic 99. This was a fantastic ballgame that will be overshadowed by narratives about the MVP. The questions will be about how the Magic nearly beat the Bulls with Dwight Howard spending a one-game suspension for hitting 18 techs, and what that says about Howard’s MVP candidacy. The other side will respond with…

  19. Chicago Bulls wrap up top seed by knocking off last year’s top seed

    Apr 8, 2011, 11:33 PM EST

    One year ago, it was the Cleveland Cavaliers that were the East’s top seed (and had the league’s best record). The Cavs were considered a threat to win it all. The Bulls were struggling along at .500, with more talk about free agent plans than second round plans. Things can change a lot in a…

  20. Video: Derrick Rose carves up the Celtics

    Apr 8, 2011, 11:34 AM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Chicago Bulls

    Is there anything more fun to watch in the NBA right now than Derrick Rose carving up a defense? I’ll come clean: as a guy who grew up in L.A. a Laker fan, watching him do it to the Celtics makes me enjoy it just a little bit more. But when he came to play…

  21. Scottie Pippen now immortalized at United Center

    Apr 8, 2011, 8:50 AM EST

    Scottie Pippen Statue

    It was fitting. Michael Jordan is soaring high, larger than life outside the United Center. Now, inside the building and in full color, Scottie Pippen has his eyes on everything. The Bulls unveiled a bust of Pippen at halftime of their trouncing of Boston Thursday night. The statue of the Bulls legend will be displayed…

  22. Bulls make it clear — right now they are better than Celtics

    Apr 8, 2011, 1:16 AM EST

    Derrick Rose, Kevin Garnett

    If Chicago and Boston meet in the playoffs, it will be in the second half of May. Conference finals time. Things can change and evolve in a month. But right now Chicago is the better team. Clearly. And they enter the playoffs with a lot of confidence. It wasn’t just that they beat Boston Thursday…

  23. Dwight Howard’s technical upheld, suspended for Sunday

    Apr 7, 2011, 6:00 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    So that big Bull against Magic game for Sunday just got a lot less interesting. Dwight Howard’s technical for throwing the ball Wednesday after being called for a foul for shooting slow free throws has been upheld by the league. He is suspended from Sunday’s game because this is his 18th technical this season. Players…

  24. Boston vs. Chicago: It’s a playoff preview. And it isn’t.

    Apr 7, 2011, 5:11 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics, Game 7

    Thursday night’s much anticipated Celtics at Bulls matchup is not a playoff preview. Well, technically it can be. These two teams could meet in the Eastern Conference finals, but first they have to get there. Teams evolve during the playoffs, these teams will be different by then. More importantly, no Shaquille O’Neal for Boston tonight.…

    The Kings likely final game in Sacramento is nearly a sellout. Scottie Pippen gets his bust inside the United Center tonight. In his blog, Wizards owner Ted Leonsis said that “A new big three has announced its arrival – Wall, Crawford and Blatche.” He got one third of that right. (Tom Ziller pretty much hit…
