During the Bulls reign, MJ would bail his team out of games like this by going for 40+ pts. Maybe Beal or Pierce can do that tonight
Bulls locker room like Spirit of '76 painting
As always thanks for listening Bulls fans. Up next at Utah Monday 730CT pre Bulls Radio Network ESPN 1000
That's a wrap: Blazers 105, Bulls 87. FINAL. Portland 9-3. 3-game road trip up next.
Final: Blazers 105, Bulls 87. Six in a row for the Blazers.
Bulls lost 7th straight in Portland. Mirotic with 24 points and 11 rebounds.
The Bulls have now lost seven straight games in Portland.
Those bringing up Raptors, I like them a lot. Just think Cavs and Bulls, if Rose still has game, have higher ceilings.
After Bulls lose to Blazers, the East will fall to 19-42 (.311) vs. West this year.
Sad part for Bulls is that it's same tunnel that Rose limped into last season when he blew out his knee. A lot of concern on Bulls' bench
Not like it's saying a whole lot in this game but Mirotic has by far been the best Bulls player tonight.
Bulls say Taj Gibson has a left ankle sprain and will not return.
According to Bulls PR, Taj Gibson suffered a sprained left ankle and won't return.
End of 3: Blazers 89, Bulls 65.
As John Winger famously said, "...and then depression set in." Bulls fall behind 84-58 w/Rose, Gasol, Hinrich and Gibson now all injured
Time for Thibs to pull the starters and play for another day. The last thing the Bulls need is for somebody else to get hurt in Portland.
Bulls PR will have Taj Gibson update shortly.
Bulls have lost yet another player. Gibson assisted to locker room with apparent ankle- leg injury
The Bulls seriously can't go two games without a key guy getting hurt. Its been like this for four or five years now.
Gibson is up, but unable to walk under own power. Teammates pick him up, help him to locker room for evaluation. Injury bug hits Bulls again
Entire Bulls team on floor gathered around Gibson
The entire Bulls' bench is on the floor to check on Gibson.
Bulls forward Taj Gibson down in serious pain holding his left ankle.
Bulls have two offdays before Jazz on Monday. Intrigued to see when, and if, Thibodeau pulls the starters.
Lost in the kerfuffle: Blazers suddenly dominating the offensive glass, a weakness for the Bulls this season.
Those battlin' Bulls: More contretempts. Ejections likely coming perhaps for Dunleavy and Brooks and Portland Matthews while 63-45 Portland
Was told Aaron Brooks had crazy eyes before he signed with the Bulls. Finally had a chance to see them.
Nobody left Bulls' bench area. But assume that will be a flagrant 2 on Dunleavy.
Noah fell hard on the floor and Bulls ended up getting into shoving match around center court. Couldn't see exactly who was involved.
