Chicago Bulls

  1. Heat plan to stay small, will not play Dampier or Ilgauskas

    May 18, 2011, 7:40 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    Despite giving up 19 offensive rebounds in a Game 1 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, the Heat don’t plan to get any bigger for Game 2. According to our own Ira Winderman, Zydrunas Ilgauskas has said that he will remain inactive and Erick Dampier will not dress for Game 2. Both players started…

  2. NBA Playoffs: Can Heat rebound — literally — against Bulls?

    May 18, 2011, 3:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game One

    These are two very good defensive teams. They will contest virtually every shot, jump passing angles and not let players get to the spots they want on the floor. In Game 1, the Bulls responded to that challenge by going to their strength in this series and crashing the offensive glass ferociously. The result was…

  3. Charles Barkley calls the Heat too “whiny”

    May 17, 2011, 5:03 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    Ever since “The Decision,” the Miami Heat have been seen by many as the league’s biggest villains. However, Charles Barkley, who was no stranger to controversy as a player, thinks that the Heat have made things harder on themselves with the public by playing up an “us against the world” mentality too much this season: “[The…

    Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns

    Jason Kidd says all his critics are just jealous of his longevity. Yea, that’s it. Here’s a breakdown of all 19 offensive rebounds the Chicago Bulls got in Game 1 against the Heat. LeBron James in the playoffs is still pretty much LeBron James. The Minnesota Timberwolves have never improved their draft position thanks to…

  6. NBA Playoffs: Heat/Bulls Game 1 the most-viewed basketball game in cable history

    May 16, 2011, 6:04 PM EDT

    C.J. Watson, LeBron James

    In case you haven’t figured it out by now, when the Heat play, people watch. Maybe they’re watching to see them win, maybe they’re watching out of curiosity, or maybe they’re watching in hopes that they’ll get their butts kicked like they did on Sunday night. Either way, people have been watching, and the Heat…

  7. Video: Taj Gibson was a highlight factory Sunday night

    May 16, 2011, 12:30 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Taj Gibson celebrates after a basket against the Atlanta Hawks during Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference second round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    We already showed you how the Bulls Taj Gibson was not very welcoming to Chicago native Dwyane Wade Sunday night. But tat was not all Gibson did. He also had the most spectacular of the 19 offensive rebounds the Bulls grabbed in Game 1, a thunderous putback for two. Another case of the Heat defense…

  8. Video: Taj Gibson returns the favor to Dwyane Wade

    May 16, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    Bulls' Gibson celebrates after a dunk on the Heat during Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference Finals playoff basketball game in Chicago

    Dwyane Wade dunks on a lot of people. Taj Gibson returned the favor two him during the Bulls Game 1 beat down of the Heat Sunday night. It was a transition play where C.J. Watson is leading the break but leaves it back for Gibson. You see Wade turn but it’s too late for him…

  9. Riley should remind Heat that no rebounds = no rings

    May 16, 2011, 1:03 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game One

    The Miami Heat shot the ball just as well as the Chicago Bulls. It didn’t feel that way at all, but the Bulls shot 43.7 percent in Game 1 and the Heat shot 47.1 percent. Use effective field goal percentage to account for all the Bulls made threes and it is a nearly identical 49.4…

  10. NBA Playoffs: Bulls look like beasts of the East in Game 1

    May 15, 2011, 11:37 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game One

    It was a line buried in PBT’s Game 1 preview but it ended up telling you all you needed to know — both of these teams can defend so it was about who got the easy buckets. For Chicago, that meant offensive rebounds — and they went out grabbed 19 of them, a full 41.7…

  11. NBA Playoffs Bulls-Heat Game 1: Defending Derrick

    May 15, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Let’s get this out of the way. Derrick Rose is going to average over 20 points per game in this series, and the only reason I’m putting that that low is because the trudging slow pace of the series due to the defense will limit how many opportunities he gets. Rose is not only a…

  12. NBA Playoffs: Heat vs. Bulls Game 1 all about defense

    May 15, 2011, 12:56 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Taj Gibson guards the Miami Heat's LeBron James during first quarter NBA basketball action in Miami

    There will be spectacular plays because this series features three of the most dynamic players in the league. Derrick Rose will break somebody’s ankle with a crossover, LeBron James will destroy someone in the open court. Bank on it. But highlights will not win this series. Defense will. That starts with Game 1 Sunday night…

  13. His name is Joakim, he’s carrying the will

    May 15, 2011, 12:43 AM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    Joakim Noah operates in a weird nexus of over and underrated. His actual consistent play by play work can vary greatly. He drifts in and out of plays and those nights where he simply doesn’t have it happen more often than you’d like. But when he does make an impact, he seems to shift the…

  14. Agent says Wade closer to being a Bull than you think

    May 14, 2011, 7:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Jersey Nets

    You conspiracy theorists who believe Tupac is alive, there was a guy on the grassy knoll and that aliens helped the Egyptians build the pyramids, you also believe LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade had it all mapped out two years ago. The Miami Heat master plan. That’s not how it worked. It was…

  15. Derrick Rose’s game evolves as playoffs go on

    May 14, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    derrick_rose

    Derrick Rose was special this season. He attacked the rim with a reckless abandon on his way to 24.1 points and 7.4 assists per game, carrying the Bulls offense all the way to the conference finals, picking up an MVP trophy along the way. He did it driving in a straight line. Literally. He is…

  16. Does Bulls’ sweep of Heat this season matter now?

    May 13, 2011, 3:02 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The Bulls and Heat met three times in the regular season. Three times the Bulls won, a couple of close games and one pretty comfortably. Derrick Rose had big games, Chris Bosh struggled. But don’t make the mistake of thinking that matters much now. For one, the most recent of those games was in March…

  17. Video: Thibodeau talks Bulls vs. Heat with Dan Patrick

    Pretty good interview we thought we’d pass along from this morning… of course, we’re sure you listened attentively to every second of the Dan Patrick Show, so you’ve heard Tom Thibodeau talking playoffs. Consider this a reminder (via CSN Chicago). Thibodeau talks Heat and Bulls and the challenges LeBron and company present. He also talks…

  18. Carlos Boozer: The Heat have two great players

    May 13, 2011, 10:20 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Let the war of words begin. After the Bulls eliminated the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday in convincing fashion, thoughts turned to the next series and the Miami Heat. How do you beat the Heat’s big three? Except Carlos Boozer doesn’t really see it that way, according to a tweet from Shandel Richardson of the Sun…

    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…

  20. Report: Warrant issued for Derrick Rose’s brother

    May 13, 2011, 8:19 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Thursday night was the highlight of Derrick Rose’s basketball career. The newly-minted league MVP led the Chicago Bulls to the Eastern Conference finals for the first time since Michael Jordan left. He is reaching new heights of success. But on the same night, news broke of an arrest warrant issued for Rose’s older brother a…

    SEASON RECORDS Bulls: 62-20 (No. 1 seed in East) Heat: 58-24 (No. 2 seed) SEASON SERIES Chicago swept the season series 3-0. The most recent game was in early March, it’s safe to say both these teams are a little different right now. Still, a sweep. PLAYOFF SERIES Bulls: defeated Indiana Pacers 4-1, defeated Atlanta…

  22. 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…

  23. NBA Playoffs: Bulls have questions to answer to avoid Game 7

    May 12, 2011, 4:16 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose drives to the net on Atlanta Hawks' Josh Smith during Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference second round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    For a Bulls team one win away from going to the conference finals, there seems to be a lot of questions. Not about their defense — we know they can lock it down on that end. But about their ability to score on a good defense. About how far Derrick Rose can carry their offense…

  24. Celtics will be back for one more run, but they shouldn’t

    May 11, 2011, 10:47 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Four

    The time has now passed. The window has closed. Make no mistake, the Celtics are still a good team. Bring them back next year and they will win 50-plus games and put up a fight in the playoffs. But they are not a great team. Nor will they be again with this group. Boston fought valiantly in…

  25. Oprah is bigger than NBA, league may bend schedule

    May 11, 2011, 6:05 PM EDT

    Oprah Winfrey

    You do not mess with Oprah Winfrey. Especially not on her home turf in Chicago. The NBA is not about to try. It will move its schedule around to accommodate the queen of daytime television, the Miami Herald reports. The NBA informed a few involved parties before Tuesday’s Bulls game that if the Heat and…
