Derrick Rose, fourth quarter. Fourth quarter, Derrick Rose. Why don’t you two kids get reintroduced.
Should Rose get outplayed by Mike Miller in the fourth quarter? I mean, really.
Rose had to be the best player in Game 4. Didn’t happen. Not...

Amid the civic uncertainty Saturday night over Derrick Rose's basketball future created by the torn ACL in his left knee came hope from the unlikeliest of places: on a mound inside a baseball park six miles south.
At U.S. Cellular Field hours after...

Not that long ago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau stood at a podium after a rare lousy performance and implored players in his own inimitable way.
"Do. Your. Job.'' Thibodeau barked in his baritone voice April 16 after the Bulls lost at home to the Wizards....

Tom Thibodeau said the Bulls have to play to their strengths, and I’m wondering, do they have any left?
After that miserable Game 2 of the Bulls’ playoff series with Philadelphia, Luol Deng repeatedly said “Derrick’s not here,&...

At times, I don’t know how either of these teams could win a game, much less a playoff series.
The Bulls and Philadelphia 76ers offered a painful exhibition of bad shots, bad shot selection, bad defense and bad ball handling.
But someone had to...

PHILADELPHIA — As C.J. Watson's desperation, three-quarter-court heave at the buzzer bounced off the back of the rim Thursday night to clinch a 79-78 victory and the series for the 76ers, harsh reality hit before the ball landed.

So, I’m reading that Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer will have to put up another combined game of 40-plus points and 20-plus rebounds if the Bulls are going to win Game 6 in Philadelphia on Thursday night to force a deciding game at home.

The 76ers tried to give away the game.
The Bulls didn't take it.
Good news is, this saves the Bulls the misery of losing the next round.
If a team missing its best player and its emotional and defensive leader can choke, then the Bulls did.

In early February, you could have made a convincing argument for the Philadelphia 76ers to reach the NBA's Eastern Conference semifinals.
If you had tried to make that same argument a few weeks ago, however, you might've had your sanity questioned....

Whatever hurts the most.
A sweep by Oklahoma City? Great.
A five-game series but the Thunder still clinch it on Miami’s floor? Great.
Oklahoma City loses the first three games and then becomes the first team to wipe out that deficit to win an NBA...

Luol Deng indeed found himself on the move during the NBA draft. But where Deng was headed, I suspect the Bulls forward focused more on the exchange rate than trade rumors.
Deng spent Thursday night flying to London to prepare for the Olympics, and jolly...
