  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. Bulls’ Rose wearing “precautionary” walking boot for ankle; MRI negative

    Apr 24, 2011, 9:07 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    UPDATE 9:07 pm: According to Aggrey Sam over at CSN Chicago, Rose’s MRI came back negative. So, it is just a minor sprain. Which means like we say in the rest of this post, you can bet he plays the next game. 7:04 pm: Derrick Rose is go for Game 5. And you can expect…

  6. NBA Playoffs: Pacers manage to win a game as Rose struggles

    Apr 23, 2011, 6:32 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    It wasn’t easy, but the Indiana Pacers finally managed to beat the Bulls after losing three consecutive heart-breakers. While the Pacers controlled the game most of the way, they did manage to make things interesting by allowing the Bulls to end the game on a 22-11 run, and the Bulls were one Carlos Boozer three-pointer…

  7. NBA Playoffs: Can the Pacers find a way to win one?

    Apr 23, 2011, 11:59 AM EST

    Bulls Pacers Basketball

    Three games decided by a total of 15 points. The Indiana Pacers have been close in this series. Very close. But when it came to end-of-game execution — and players who can execute under that kind of pressure — Chicago has it and Orlando struggles. The Bulls are up 3-0 and the only question that…

  8. NBA Playoffs: Bulls win yet another nail-biter

    Apr 21, 2011, 10:12 PM EST

    Bulls Pacers Basketball

    It’s hard not to feel for the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers came into the series as heavy underdogs, each one of their games against the mighty Chicago Bulls has come down to the last few possessions, and they still find themselves on the verge of being swept after another heartbreaking loss. The Pacers needed to…

  9. NBA Playoffs: After two moral victories, Pacers search for actual victory

    Apr 21, 2011, 6:18 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    The Indiana Pacers put up a much tougher fight against the Bulls than anybody thought they would in the first two games of their playoff series, even though they lost both games. Like the old Simpsons quote goes: in a way, both teams were winners; but in a more accurate way, the Bulls were the…

  10. It’s official, Kevin Love is NBA’s Most Improved Player

    Apr 21, 2011, 3:30 PM EST

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    We told you this was coming, but it is now official, Minnesota’s Kevin Love is the NBA’s Most Improved Player. We also told you we were down with that — Love improved his shooting percentage from all over the court, his rebounding percentage and the consistency of his effort. Coach Kurt Rambis (who was not…

  11. Have the Pacers laid out the blueprint to beat the Bulls?

    Apr 19, 2011, 3:03 PM EST

    Tom Thibodeau

    Chicago vs. Indiana was supposed to be one of the blowouts of the first round. Our preview predicted a sweep. What the Pacers liked to do the Bulls could defend, and the Bulls had Derrick Rose. Two hard fought games in, the questions are not about this series — the Bulls are going to win…

  12. NBA Playoffs: The Bulls manage to hold on

    Apr 19, 2011, 1:10 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    The Indiana Pacers were able to put up yet another great fight against the Chicago Bulls on Monday night, but they were once again left with nothing to show for their valiant effort. In game one of the series, the Pacers took the Bulls down to the wire because of their sharp jump shooting. The…

  13. Pacers Darren Collison leaves game with ankle sprain, does not return

    Apr 18, 2011, 11:53 PM EST

    Darren_Collison

    As if things were not challenging enough in this series for the Indiana Pacers…. Late in the second quarter the Pacers starting point guard Darren Collison rolled his ankle when he stepped on the foot of a camera man out of bounds along the baseline in what was a fluke accident. Collison sat out the rest…

  14. NBA Playoffs: Bulls will improve in Game 2, can Pacers?

    Apr 18, 2011, 8:45 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 Indiana Pacers came out of Game 1 — where they led until the final minute and almost pulled the upset — thinking that they can play with the Chicago Bulls. But can they? The Bulls can play much better than they did in game one — look for them to focus on tightening the…

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

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

    Apr 15, 2011, 8:25 PM EST

    derrick Rose bulls

    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…

  18. 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.…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. NBA Playoff Preview: Chicago vs. Indiana

  22. LeBron returns to top of NBA jersey sales pile

    Apr 13, 2011, 11:40 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Apparently, a lot of you wanted a LeBron James Miami Heat jersey. Sure, you talked about his massive ego and how the decision was handled and how this reflected on him as a person — then a bunch of you went out and purchased a No. 6 Miami Heat jersey. Which means in one sense…

  23. 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…

  24. Winderman: Playoffs should count toward post-season awards

    Apr 12, 2011, 5:22 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Chicago Bulls

    Every year the process feels dirty, for some reason this season more so than others. Why, exactly, do NBA award ballots have to be in to the league office by Thursday? Why can’t the playoffs count, especially since many consider those the only games that matter, anyway? This isn’t baseball, when you play a six-month…

  25. 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…
