Something resembling a basketball game was played at the United Center, and the Bulls got their first win.
The Bulls and Hawks got together for a good ol’ fashioned tank-off at the United Center on Thursday night, and it went just how you’d expect a game to go between two awful teams missing key players.
Miami kept it interesting, but the Bulls outmatched them
After a nerve-filled win in his first trip back to Miami this season, Dwyane Wade led the Bulls to a 105-100 victory in his first career home game against the Heat. He finished with 28 points (on 11 of 24 shooting), three rebounds, three assists, and two blocks in another tightly contested matchup with his former franchise.
An awful foul call against DeMarcus Cousins aided Bulls in victory
The Bulls and Kings played something that resembled a basketball game on Saturday night at the United Center, and Chicago snuck away with a 102-99 victory that was aided by some poor officiating.
Back in that playoff race!
Dwyane Wade started the game 0-6, but subsequently went 9-17 to finish with 21 points. He also, pretty incredibly, had 7 steals, and I say incredible because he was doing the usual low-effort Wade thing. But he did hit a few of those turnaround midrange shots of faded hall-of-fame-shooting-guard past. Wade led the Bulls in scoring as they pulled away from the Orlando Magic late to win 100-92.
Butler’s buzzer-beater caps off late Bulls run
The Bulls really had no business beating the lowly Nets at home thanks to a miserable performance throughout most of Wednesday night’s game, but a superhuman effort by Jimmy Butler and a timely Brooklyn collapse resulted in a 101-99 victory.
Butler scored 39 as the Bulls’ winning streak hits four games
Jimmy Butler played nearly an entire game of dominant basketball in the Bulls’ come-from-behind victory over the Hawks on Saturday, so you could’ve excused him for being a little tired against the Pelicans on Sunday. Instead, Butler came out and delivered another superstar performance as the Bulls won 117-110 to earn their fourth straight victory and solidify their place in the Eastern Conference playoff picture.
remarkable 1st half after 3 straight bad losses
Fred Hoiberg might as well update his pop culture references to something merely 10 years old.
There’s a ship sinking in the Eastern Conference playoff race, but it’s not in Chicago. Both them and the Pistons came into Monday night in desperate circumstances, but it was only the Bulls who played desperately, riding an insane first half performance to a 113-82 victory.
Five Bulls scored in double figures on a night that saw the team assist on more than 75% of its baskets.
One night after one of their worst closing-minutes collapses of the entire season, the Chicago Bulls rallied through abscences from both their starting and backup centers to blow out the Detroit Pistons at home to the tune of a 117-95 win. Jimmy Butler scored only 16 points on six shots over the course of the entire game, but double-figure scoring performances from four other Bulls combined with some of the best team-ball movement of their season proved to be more than enough for Chicago to overwhelm Detroit.
The Bulls got back on track this evening with a solid win over one of the best teams in the NBA.
If you haven’t figured out yet that the Bulls are must-not-miss-television on Thursday night TNT games, then you are missing out.
The Chicago Bulls took down the San Antonio Spurs 95-91 at the United Center this evening, which marks the first road loss for the Spurs all season. Despite Jimmy Butler getting held to his first scoreless half of the season, the Bulls managed to get solid enough performances from the rest of their starters to crank out a victory in which the Bulls never trailed.
And did so despite one of the most hilariously awful officiating blunders you will see all year.
No Cameron Payne, No King Joffrey, and no Anthony Marrow didn’t matter in the first Bulls game post-Taj Gibson as the Chicago Bulls managed to take down the Phoenix Suns tonight 128-121 in overtime. Many of the usual pillars for the Bulls played poorly until the late stages of the game, and the final seconds of regulation featured the worst call you will see all season.
THE rampage continues.
League-leading San Miguel cruised to yet another victory, annihilating Mahindra, 109-80, this time around to stretch its winning run to four and remain unscathed in the 2017 Philippine Basketball Association Commissioner’s Cup at the Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay City last night.
It’s only been a week. They’ll be fine. Elsewhere: What a fun week it’s been.
After one week of the new NBA season, Paul Flannery and Tom Ziller hooked up to discuss early surprises and disappointments.
Can’t spell Carmelo Anthony without Hoodie Melo.
Carmelo Anthony seems ready to embrace Oklahoma City and he’s brought his hoodies with him. The best part about this offseason was being formally introduced to Anthony’s better half: Hoodie Melo.
He had his flaws, but the Knicks shoulder most of the blame for his six-year tenure not fulfilling its promise.
I remember exactly where I was the night Carmelo Anthony broke the record.
I was at a bar called Stillwater Tavern in Hampton, Va., where I did my undergrad years. While my friends were ordering drinks, I was watching Melo go to work against the Bobcats on a cold winter night in January. I was obsessed with the Knicks back then. I still am.
Anthony isn’t interested in the Cavaliers’ dysfunction
It’s August and the NBA’s offseason hasn’t been able to slow down, largely because of the Knicks struggles to move on from Carmelo Anthony. (Of course, Kyrie Irving’s trade request has energized the news cycle, as well.) It doesn’t look like that will be changing anytime soon.
The trades that never were.
This wild NBA offseason got a tad wilder when Carmelo Anthony was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder last weekend in a blockbuster deal. But according to Anthony himself, a blockbuster trade elsewhere could have happened much sooner.
Melo joins the Thunder after helping drag New York out of the doldrums of NBA standings.
The New York Knicks have traded perennial All-Star Carmelo Anthony to the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The deal marks the end of a seven-year period of Anthony as the face of Knicks basketball.
As part of the deal, New York receives Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a 2018 second-round pick via the Bulls.
Anthony had been set on joining the Rockets, but with the season approaching, he may waive his no-trade clause for another team.
Carmelo Anthony has expanded his list of teams that he would accept a trade to, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, and one of those teams is the Cleveland Cavaliers. With the season looming, this is a clear sign that Anthony has blinked — he wants out of New York, even if it’s not on his exact terms.
The Cavaliers survived a late push to top the Celtics.
The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Boston Celtics 124-118 on TNT on Thursday night. The matchup pitted the heavy Eastern Conference favorites against one of the few teams with a hope of beating them. The Cavaliers stepped up to the challenge, bouncing back from the Monday loss to the Pistons. Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love lead the team to victory, each had a double double, but overall the Cavaliers put on a stellar offensive showing.
LeBron James scored 39 points, hopped Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the career playoff scoring list and pushed the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 125-103 blowout over the Toronto Raptors in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series on Wednesday night.
Just like a year ago in the conference finals, the Cavs are up 2-0 on the Raptors, who had better figure some things out or this series will be over quickly. Toronto was blown out for the fifth straight time in Cleveland in the playoffs, losing each by an average of 24.2 points.
