  1. Report: Pistons would trade Josh Smith if they could

    Jan 31, 2014, 7:48 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Brandan Wright

    Josh Smith is having the worst season of his career. Playing far too much small forward, a position he can handle only in select matchups, his defense has really fallen off. Though Smith defends power forwards well, his his lack of speed on the perimeter kills his ability to chase wings around screens. He’s also…

  2. Heat begin title defense with opening night blowout win over Bulls

    Oct 29, 2013, 11:17 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    The Bulls were one of the fashionable preseason picks to dethrone the Heat this season, considering the return of Derrick Rose, the way Chicago has historically defended under Tom Thibodeau, and the fact that Miami is trying to become the first team to reach the Finals in four straight seasons since the Celtics did it 27…

  3. Derrick Rose to sit out Bulls’ preseason game in Brazil due to knee soreness

    Chicago Bulls' Rose attends a practice ahead of NBA Global Games Rio 2013 in Rio de Janeiro

    Derrick Rose looked great in his return to NBA action last week, showing every bit of the trademark speed and explosiveness we remembered seeing from the former MVP when he was last on the court almost 18 months prior. Rose was out for so long due to needing extended time to rehab from a torn…

  4. Bulls plan to limit Joakim Noah’s minutes to help plantar fasciitis

    Sep 27, 2013, 9:54 AM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau

    Joakim Noah says right now he feels no pain in his foot, no plantar fasciitis. That despite a summer where he worked out plenty, even training with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. His foot feels fine. If the Bulls are going to be the contenders they think they are, Noah still has to be fine in April and…

  5. Nazr Mohammed doesn’t hold a grudge with LeBron James for getting pushed down by Mohammed

    Aug 19, 2013, 2:31 PM EDT

    Heat Bulls Basketball

    In the Bulls-Heat playoff series last spring, Nazr Mohammed got involved in an altercation with LeBron James. While LeBron dribbled, Mohammad fouled him, and as they were tangled, LeBron pushed Mohammed to the floor. At that point, the basketball play ended. Mohammed got up and shoved LeBron, who was already looking at a referee while…

  7. Bulls, Nazr Mohammed reach one-year deal for his return

    Jul 2, 2013, 11:47 AM EDT

    APTOPIX Heat Bulls Basketball

    Nazr Mohammed provided the Bulls 11 minutes of solid defense in the paint per game last year, a few buckets here and there, and one famous shove of LeBron James in the playoffs. That was enough to earn him a new deal. The Bulls and Mohammed have agreed to a one-year, veteran minimum deal. That…

  8. NBA considering NHL-style off-site replay review system

    NBA Instant replay review referee

    When there is a questionable goal in a Tuesday night NHL game between the Kings and Rangers, the referees do not skate over near the penalty box, stare at a monitor and try to figure out what happened. All NHL replays are reviewed and the call is made out of the league office in a…

  9. Stern tells NBC Sports Radio: Andersen “should have been ejected” for Hansbrough shove

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    I’m not sure what the officials in Game 5 were looking at — Chris Andersen body checked Tyler Hansbrough then shoved him. Yet all he got was a Flagrant 1. The precedent here was pretty clear from the Nazr Mohammed shove of LeBron James in the last round — the Birdman should have been ejected.…

    May 16, 2013, 11:44 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Five

    That was a pretty minor play in this game — in the fourth quarter the Heat were on a fast break and, as they have done all series long, the Bulls tried to go with the “Euro foul” out at midcourt before the play developed to break it up. Except, nothing is minor when Nate…

  11. Preview: Bulls defense solving Heat bigger issues than referees

    May 13, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    The Chicago Bulls have much, much bigger issues right now than the referees. You couldn’t tell that from the talk around Chicago or even at times from coach Tom Thibodeau. It’s about the foul calls, it’s about LeBron James the flopper. For the coach and his $35,000 rant, that was simply him trying to influence…

  12. LeBron James shrugs off claims he’s a flopper

    May 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    APTOPIX Heat Bulls Basketball

    LeBron James is used to all of you calling him names. From the comment sections of this site to fans close to the floor arenas LeBron has heard it all — the stuff about his mother, about Cleveland, about how he can’t lead, how he is overrated, how he’s soft, how he can’t close, and…

  13. Nazr Mohammed won’t be fined or suspended for his Game 3 shove of LeBron James

    May 12, 2013, 5:13 PM EDT

    APTOPIX Heat Bulls Basketball

    Nazr Mohammed was ejected in the second quarter of the Heat’s Game 3 win over the Bulls after delivering a two-handed shove to LeBron James which sent the MVP to the floor.

  14. Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau fined $35K for comments made after Game 3 loss to Heat

    May 12, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau

    Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau has been fined $35,000 for comments he made about the officiating following his team’s Game 3 loss to the Heat, the lague announced on Sunday via official release. And really, this wasn’t a question of “if,” but more a question of “when” and “how much.” Thibodeau ripped the officiating…

  15. How Nazr Mohammed’s ejection for shoving LeBron sunk the Bulls

    May 11, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Heat Bulls Basketball

    LeBron James saw his altercation with Nazr Mohammed the same way many of us did. LeBron, via Tim Bontemps of the New York Post: “If I get kicked out and Nazr Mohammed gets kicked out at the same time, who wins?” LeBron is obviously right. If both players had been ejected, that would have played…

  16. Bulls say LeBron flopped after being shoved by Nazr Mohammed

    May 11, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    APTOPIX Heat Bulls Basketball

    The play ultimately had little effect on the game’s final outcome, but it was the culmination of a series of physical actions from both sides. Early in the second quarter of the Heat’s Game 3 win over the Bulls, Nazr Mohammed fouled LeBron James hard near half court in an attempt to slow the Heat…

  17. Bulls push back but can’t stop Heat stars… Cole and Bosh? Yup. Heat get win.

    Heat's James celebrates with teammate Cole after Cole made a basket against the Bulls during Game 3 of their NBA Eastern Conference semi-finals basketball playoff series in Chicago

    You knew the Chicago Bulls were going to be ready to fight… Nazr Mohammed may have taken that too literally and was ejected for shoving LeBron James to the ground. Still, this is what you expected from the Bulls. You also know LeBron James is going to get his if he wants them. And in…

  18. Bulls’ Nazr Mohammed ejected from Game 3 after shoving LeBron James to the floor (VIDEO)

    APTOPIX Heat Bulls Basketball

    Things took a little longer to get heated between the Bulls and the Heat in Game 3 than they did in Game 2, but the first ejection of the night came much faster. Early in the second quarter with the Bulls holding a three-point lead, Nazr Mohammed committed a hard foul on LeBron James just…

  19. Joakim Noah leads Bulls to Game 7 win over Nets

    May 4, 2013, 11:17 PM EDT

    BKN -BULLS-NETS-EASTERN CONFERENCE QUATERFINALS

    Immediately after the final buzzer sounded in the Bulls 99-93 Game 7 win over the Nets on Saturday, Joakim Noah walked toward center court, screaming with excitement and popping his road red Bulls jersey. He had every right to do so, considering his inspired performance was the main reason behind his team’s victory — one…

  20. Bulls win 3OT thriller thanks to Nate Robinson, Nazr Mohammed. Up 3-1 on Nets.

    Apr 27, 2013, 6:59 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    The Nets had this. Deron Williams was his old self and Brooklyn up 14 in the fourth quarter against a Chicago team with no good offense. This series was going to be even and a best of three. Then Nate Robinson happened — a 23-point fourth quarter explosion in the fourth quarter led a dramatic…

  21. Bulls, Nets make Nets’ offense stink

    Apr 26, 2013, 12:56 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    Joakim Noah scored his first point and on the next possession, in his 27th minute, he closed hard to marginally, if at all, bother a wide-open corner 3-point attempt. Tonight, that was plenty. The Bulls – with lots of help from Brooklyn – crippled the Nets’ offense and watched one more airball as time expired,…

  22. Joakim Noah’s heart lifts Bulls to ugly win over Nets

    Apr 22, 2013, 11:49 PM EDT

    BKN-BULLS-NETS

    Joakim Noah pushed Kris Humphries in the back, positioned himself between Humphries and C.J. Watson for a rebound and lunged out of bounds to save the ball as it took a sharp carom across the baseline. Noah’s heave was headed out of bounds on the sideline, but Kirk Hinrich jumped to save the ball, making…

  23. Joakim Noah will not start Saturday, sounds like a guy who may not play all series

    Apr 19, 2013, 4:04 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    It’s not that the Chicago Bulls plans have to change dramatically if Joakim Noah is out during the playoffs, they are still going to try and be physical and grind the Nets down. They just aren’t going to be as good at it. Noah sounds like a guy who is not going to play. Not…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching FGCU celebrate their trip to the Sweet 16 a thousand times. Nets 102, Suns 100: The Nets were without Joe Johnson in this one, but early in the third quarter, when Brooklyn had increased its lead to 16 points, it seemed…

  25. Why is Chicago slumping? Go back to this summer’s moves.

    Feb 28, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau, Jimmy Butler, Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson

    The Chicago Bulls are in a slump. They have lost 7-of-10 and are 6-9 in their last 15. Their already weak offense has slipped a little but it is the defense that has taken the bigger step back. They have slid down the ranks in the Eastern conference to the sixth seed, making their road…
