Chicago Bulls

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

    May 6, 2011, 10:07 AM EST

    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…

  2. Bulls coach Thibodeau sticks up for Carlos Boozer

    May 5, 2011, 9:48 PM EST

    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…

  3. Noah wants Bulls fans to stop booing Carlos Boozer

    May 5, 2011, 10:23 AM EST

    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…

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

    May 4, 2011, 7:47 PM EST

    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…

  5. In case you thought otherwise Boozer, Rose to play Wednesday

    May 4, 2011, 1:17 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Charlotte Bobcats

    This was never really in doubt, but we’ll make it official: Carlos Boozer and Derrick Rose will play in Game 2 Wednesday night in Chicago. Coach Tom Thibodeau said everyone participated fully this morning at shootaround and good to go, according to the Associated Press. Boozer is battling turf toe and Rose is playing through…

  6. Derrick Rose officially named MVP

    May 3, 2011, 5:24 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Phoenix Suns

    We knew it was coming, seemingly forever, and as should be expected it was a runaway. Derrick Rose is the NBA’s MVP. The youngest ever at age 22. The most recent in Chicago Bull to win it since that guy with the statue out in front of the United Center. Rose becomes only the second…

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

    May 3, 2011, 2:54 PM EST

    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…

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

    May 3, 2011, 12:06 PM EST

    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…

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

    May 3, 2011, 10:40 AM EST

    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,…

  10. NBA Playoffs: Atlanta shocks Chicago in Game 1

    May 3, 2011, 2:09 AM EST

    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…

  11. Derrick Rose injures ankle on final play of game

    May 2, 2011, 11:51 PM EST

    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…

  12. NBA Playoffs: With Hinrich out, Rose is set for an onslaught

    May 2, 2011, 6:01 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Kirk Hinrich is doubtful to play at all in the Atlanta Hawks’ series against the Chicago Bulls. As such, the Hawks are doubtful to even remain competitive in the series that will surely spell their playoff end. I hate to foretell a team’s postseason demise in such certain terms, but Hinrich’s absence makes it easy;…

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

    May 2, 2011, 1:26 PM EST

    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…

  14. Bulls Tom Thibodeau named Coach of the Year

    May 1, 2011, 5:02 PM EST

    Tom Thibodeau

    UPDATE 5:02 pm: It’s official, Tom Thibodeau is your Coach of the Year. He will be honored before the Bulls game Monday night. As we said, this is well deserved. The Bulls had a roster with eight new players yet melded into a defensive power that finished with the best recoed in the NBA. Philadelphia’s…

  15. Derrick Rose says he doesn’t know anything about being MVP. Yet.

    Apr 30, 2011, 11:37 PM EST

    Derrick Rose, Charlie Villanueva

    Derrick Rose will be announced as the NBA’s MVP in the coming weeks. We all know it. But it’s not official yet. So it was a bit of a shock when Bulls guard C.J. Watson tweeted Friday: Congrats to drose on winning the MVP he’s played unbelievable this season!!! now just need tibs to win…

  16. Hawks’ Hinrich likely out for Game 1 with strained hamstring

    Apr 29, 2011, 9:23 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    As if the Hawks don’t face enough challenges taking on the top seeded Chicago Bulls in the second round, it now looks like they now have to go without their defensive-minded starting point guard for at least a game against Derrick Rose. So good luck with that. Kirk Hinrich pulled up lame with a hamstring…

    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…

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

    Apr 29, 2011, 1:23 AM EST

    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…

  19. Playoff schedule set for Heat/Celtics and Chicago/someone

    Apr 28, 2011, 9:36 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    The conference semi-finals for the East have been set. Mostly. Except for the details of not knowing one of the four teams yet. Here is the schedule for the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics, which is the one series set in stone. Game 1: Sun., May 1 at Miami, 3:30 p.m. (ABC) Game 2: Tue.,…

  20. Bulls Carlos Boozer feels “pop” in foot, has turf toe injury

    Apr 27, 2011, 10:39 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    Carlos Boozer played just jut 15:31 on Tuesday night, and it wasn’t just because the Bulls were closing out the Pacers in a blowout win. Boozer suffered a turf toe injury during the game, something that likely will linger into the second round, reports ESPN Chicago. “I just went up for a shot, the one…

  21. NBA Playoffs: It took five games, but Bulls play like contenders

    Apr 26, 2011, 11:56 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    This looked like what we all expected this entire series to look like. The Chicago Bulls dominated Game 5 Tuesday game from the start, were up 11 at the end of one quarter, pulled away in the third quarter and cruised to a 116-89 win. Now they sit around until next Monday (when the NBA…

  22. NBA Playoffs: Can The Bulls put the Pacers away?

    Apr 26, 2011, 6:03 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    Everyone expected the Bulls to finish up their first-round series in four or five games, and that’s exactly what they would do with a win at home against the Pacers tonight. However, each of the first four games has been far more competitive than most people thought they would be, and the Pacers have shown…

  23. Pacers coach Vogel: Win Game 5 and we win the series

    Apr 26, 2011, 3:01 PM EST

    Pacers' head coach Vogel reacts during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game against the Bulls in Chicago

    Because what the Pacers really want to do is give the Bulls some real motivation, we give you Pacers coach Frank Vogel, speaking at Tuesday’s shootaround (as quoted by several members of the media): “We feel like if we win this game tonight, we’ll win the series.” It sounds like he took the brown acid…

  24. Derrick Rose: “It’s not broken, so I’m definitely playing”

    Apr 25, 2011, 10:58 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    As if you thought Derrick Rose was not going to play to close out the first round… Rose had an X-ray and an MRI, both of which came up negative, so he made it clear to Aggrey Sam of CSN Chicago exactly how this was going down, including the needle. “It’s not broken, so I’m…

  25. Scottie Pippen calls out Carlos Boozer for lack of toughness

    Apr 25, 2011, 12:23 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    On the surface, the Chicago Bulls are about to get out of the first round when they win Tuesday against Indiana. And they will point to their star Derrick Rose averaging 28.3 points per game despite all the defensive attention. But the eight-seed Pacers have exposed some questions about the Bulls. Specifically, just how tough…
