  1. Video: Jones’ check on Noah; Wade’s shove of Rip

    Apr 20, 2012, 1:22 AM EST

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade listens to the national anthem before their NBA basketball game against the Chicago Bulls in Miami

    You can’t have a true rivalry until the teams really don’t like each other — and we may be there with the Bulls and the Heat. Thursday night’s game got a little chippy. Miami was trying to send a message — to themselves as much or more than the Bulls — that they could be…

  2. Tuesday morning one liners: Rip Hamilton says he’s back

    Apr 17, 2012, 11:03 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Richard Hamilton got some real burn for the Bulls Monday night, the first…

  3. Carmelo the best player, Bulls the best team and get win

    Apr 11, 2012, 2:37 AM EST

    Iman Shumpert, Joakim Noah, Richard Hamilton

    It really wasn’t much along the lines of revenge. It really wasn’t much of a statement either. What happened when the Bulls beat the Knicks 98-86 Tuesday night is that the better team won. Emphasis on team. And the fact the Bulls did it without Derrick Rose (out with an ankle injury) should scare Knicks…

  4. Hedo Turkoglu out 3 weeks due to surgery for facial fractures

    Apr 6, 2012, 9:55 PM EST

    Orlando Magic Hedo Turkoglu complains after he picked up second foul against New York Knicks in NBA basketball game in New York

    UPDATE 9:55 pm: Hedo Turkoglu will need surgery for a broken bone in his cheek he got from an inadvertent elbow from Carmelo Anthony Thursday night, the team announced. He will have the surgery on Saturday and will be re-evaluated right before the playoffs start. Again, we’d say this could have a big impact on…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Mayo sticks dagger in Thunder

    Apr 3, 2012, 2:58 AM EST

    O.J. Mayo

    What you missed while watching Kentucky win the national title they seemed destined to win…. Memphis 94, Oklahoma City 88: Apparently the Thunder are not comfortable on top of my (and everybody’s) power rankings. This was always a dangerous letdown game for the Thunder — they beat the Heat, Lakers and Bulls in the eight…

  6. Tom Thibodeau confirms Rose will return before season ends

    Apr 2, 2012, 10:18 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Chicago Bulls

    When will Derrick Rose be back? He is sitting out his 11th straight game Monday night, and the Bulls have not been pressured to put him back in the lineup too soon because the Miami Heat have put it in cruise control and not pressured Chicago for the top seed in the East. But at…

  7. NBA Power Rankings: Top spot now Thunderstruck

    Apr 2, 2012, 4:46 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook celebrates with small forward Kevin Durant during their NBA basketball game against Chicago Bulls in Oklahoma City

    There can’t be any question about the Thunder in the top spot after the last 8 days, but there are questions about the Heat and the Bulls in the East. And the Celtics and Spurs as spoilers. 1. Thunder (40-12, last week ranked number 2). They beat the Heat, Bulls and Lakers in the last…

  8. Rip Hamilton could return to Bulls lineup Friday

    Mar 30, 2012, 12:07 PM EST

    Richard Rip Hamilton

    Bulls fans are not going to believe it until they see him and his mask walk out on the court — and even then they may not be sure. But Richard Hamilton could return to the Bulls lineup Friday night. The Bulls are being their usually overly-cautious selves regarding discussing injuries, but here is what…

  9. Hamilton close to returning for Bulls; Rose not so much

    Mar 26, 2012, 9:07 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls

    The Chicago Bulls continue to do their best imitation of the NHL’s Blackhawks during the playoffs, not really telling anybody what is going on with injuries to Richard Hamilton and Derrick Rose, but some things are starting to leak out. Hamilton could be back by the next game, but Rose seems farther off — even…

  10. Derrick Rose “week-to-week” with groin, not running yet

    Mar 22, 2012, 11:07 PM EST

    Derrick Rose, John Lucas III

    It’s not about now anymore. It’s about five weeks from now. That’s not completely a sentiment shared by Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, who it seems has pushed his players hard, trying to get the top seed in the East. For him, playing is how you get ready for the playoffs, he told the Chicago Tribune.…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Bulls are beating everybody

    Mar 20, 2012, 9:08 AM EST

    Dwight Howard, Joakim Noah

    What you missed while getting emails from your dead friend…. Bulls 85, Magic 59: Chicago is now 10-4 this season when Derrick Rose sits and now have beaten the Heat and Magic without him in the last week. Credit where credit is due — they have been playing the best basketball in the NBA for…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bulls beat Heat even without that Rose guy

    Mar 15, 2012, 9:14 AM EST

    Miami Heat's LeBron James is guarded by Chicago Bulls' John Lucas and Luol Deng during their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    What you missed while waiting for Dwight Howard to change his mind again…. Bulls 106, Heat 102: This just shows the different mentalities of these two teams. No Derrick Rose, no Richard Hamilton and yet the Bulls just brought it with fantastic energy. They defended, guys like John Lucas III (24 points) and Jimmy Butler…

  14. Derrick Rose out, will not play against Heat due to groin injury

    Mar 14, 2012, 9:20 PM EST

    Derrick Rose LeBron James

    So much for thinking of this game as an Eastern Conference Finals preview. Chicago’s Derrick Rose will not play against the Miami Heat on Wednesday night due to a strained groin muscle, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said before the game, reports Aggrey Sam of CSNChicago.com. C.J. Watson is in and will get the start. It’s…

  15. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls, Heat own top two spots. Again.

    Mar 12, 2012, 2:38 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The trade deadline could really shake up the power rankings… but probably not. 1. Bulls (34-9, last week ranked number 1). The Bulls keep winning while they are banged up — Joakim Noah is back Monday for the Knicks but Luol Deng and Richard Hamilton are out. Those wins are really impressive. But the big…

  16. Richard Hamilton’s shoulder may not be right by playoffs

    Mar 9, 2012, 11:53 AM EST

    Richard Rip Hamilton

    At the end of the Bulls loss to the Magic Thursday night you saw how much Chicago misses Richard Hamilton — Chicago shot 2-for-10 in the final five minutes with Kyle Korver going an uncharacteristic 0-for-5. They needed another reliable scorer on the floor. Rip can be that scorer, but a shoulder injury has him…

  17. Friday And-1 links: Zach Randolph, trade rumors and more

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Zach Randolph is aiming to be back in the Grizzlies lineup next Tuesday against the Lakers. He has been out since Jan. 1 since tearing…

  18. Orlando tries to send message to Howard: Look, we can beat Bulls

    Mar 9, 2012, 12:19 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Everything Orlando does for the next 6 days is colored by Dwight Howard trade talk. That includes their 99-94 win over Chicago Thursday night — the Magic are trying to convince Howard that they can be contenders with him in tow if they just make a couple tweaks. Beating the actual contenders from Chicago and…

  19. Stephen Jackson would love to play for Bulls, but really just wants to play

    Mar 8, 2012, 10:29 AM EST

    Stephen Jackson

    Stephen Jackson is one name that is going to come up in a lot of trade rumors in the next week for two reasons: One, the guy has a long history of being able to put the ball in the basket, and at the end of the day that is still the name of the…

  20. Bulls catch break: Hamilton day-to-day with shoulder bruise

    Mar 6, 2012, 5:19 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls

    There was a lot of worry around the Chicago Bulls when Richard Hamilton left the game Monday night — he had missed more than half of the Bulls games this season and this latest shoulder injury seemed like it could be one that kept him out a while. But the Bulls catch a break. Here…

  21. Rip Hamilton injures shoulder, could be out a while

    Mar 6, 2012, 10:14 AM EST

    Richard Hamilton

    Well, on the up side the Bulls are used to playing without Richard Hamilton in the lineup. And they may be for a while — Rip injured his shoulder in the Bulls win Monday over the Pacers. There are not a lot of details but what Aggrey Sam found out for CSNChicago.com doesn’t make it…

  22. Keith Bogans out for the season

    Feb 9, 2012, 4:07 PM EST

    Bogans Nets

    The Star-Ledger’s Colin Stephenson has the report: Poor Keith Bogans. Nets say he has a complete tear of the deltoid ligament as well as a fractured left ankle. Ouch. Just reading that is painful. Bogans started all 82 games for the Chicago Bulls last season and helped them attain the league’s best regular-season record with…

  23. The 76ers are legit. But can they win big playoff games?

    Feb 2, 2012, 2:22 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    The Philadelphia 76ers beat the Chicago Bulls Wednesday night. Yes, a Bulls team without Luol Deng or Richard Hamilton, but still the team with the best record in the east and the reigning MVP Derrick Rose. As I said in the recaps, this was another clear sign that the Sixers are legit. They are a…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Sixers are legit

    iguodala

    What you missed while rock climbing with your 2-year-old strapped to your back… Sixers 98, Bulls 82: The 76ers are legit. That fast start wasn’t the soft schedule, they are a quality squad. Good ball movement will beat even the best defense, and that’s what the story was here. They have balance — five guys…
