CHICAGO BULLS VIDEOS

January 24, 2015 Updates

The Bulls’ front line of Gasol, Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson helped Chicago outrebound Dallas 47-30. While the Mavericks got solid games from its starting big men — Tyson Chandler had his 19th double-double of the season and Dirk Nowitzki scored 24 points on 10-of-15 shooting — the rest of the Mavericks accounted for only 11 rebounds. “We needed to be tougher,” Carlisle said. “We need to be more hit-first.” Dallas Morning News

Jorge Sierra: First European starters in NBA All-Star Game history: Pau and Marc Gasol. It's 2015. Dirk Nowitzki and Tony Parker have never been voted as starters for the All-Star. Dirk replaced a starter in both 2007 and 2010, though. Twitter @hoopshype

But there's good news on the medical front. The Bulls have cleared Derrick Rose to play extended minutes if needed, sources said. Rose is averaging 32.8 minutes in 10 January games. That's up from 30 minutes in December and 25.9 in November. Rose logged a season-high 37 minutes, 6 seconds in Saturday's loss to the Hawks. "I feel great," Rose said recently of his health.

Thibodeau wasted very little time – or words – dwelling on the “hot seat’’ topic following the Wednesday practice, saying “Could care less, I could,’’ when asked for a reaction of the rumors. His front office was equally dismissive. “No,’’ general manager Gar Forman said in a text, when asked if there had been discussions about Thibodeau’s job security. “It’s not a story.’’ Chicago Sun-Times

As far as this idea that Thibodeau was losing the locker room or the players were tired of his grind-it-out mentality, that seemed to be an idea very lost on Gasol. “That was not a concern,’’ Gasol said. “To me, honestly, I don’t think Tom is that hardcore. I don’t think we practice that hard. We do what we need to do, and he tries his best with us just like we try our best. We have to get on the same page, not really pointing fingers but being positive with each other.’’ Chicago Sun-Times
