Nick Friedell

Very lackluster effort from the Bulls tonight. Thibs calls an early timeout. Bulls have looked disinterested through much of this one.

Joe Cowley

Meanwhile, Knicks saying, "Don't pack up the shower shoes just yet.'' Bulls once again playing down to the competition.

Joe Cowley

"Phil's too old to be tweeting." Well done, Sir Charles. Most excitement in Knicks-Bulls is Barkley and Phillip going at it.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls fans thoughts after 1st half ?

Joe Cowley

Country Night at the United Center - some country guy playing now, while Bulls workers forced to go in mosh pit and pretend they like it.

Sean Highkin

Bulls lead 52-45 at the half. 17 points for Butler, 10 for Gasol.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 52-45 at half...Butler-17 at the break

Joe Cowley

Gasol swears in English - in case you were wondering. Bulls 52-45 at halftime.

Sam Smith

Love Mirotic's in your face move: Pump fakes to draw the defender closer and then shoots the three. Makes it. 48-37 Bulls. Thibs confused

Sean Highkin

Bulls players giving the thumbs up/thumbs down to the country music Jimmy plays. Rose/Dunleavy/Noah/Taj down. Doug/Nazr up.

Chuck Swirsky

Threeeekola.....Bulls 48-37 3 min left 1st half @Nikola Mirotic with 6

Demian Belmonte

Si en los Bulls salieran ahora Jordan, Pippen, Will Perdue y John Paxson con 50 años cada uno seguramente ganarían igual a los Knicks

Sam Smith

Knicks only limitation seems to be they don't have very many good players. 40-32 Bulls midway through second qtr

Nick Friedell

Meanwhile, the Bulls look like they are just kind of sleepwalking though this one.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 7 turnovers= 12 NY points- Bulls 40-32 6:19 left 2nd quarter

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 36-28 830 left 2nd quarter

Sam Smith

Bulls 30-20 after one. TNT trying to get Bucks/Kings to move up starting time to switch to that game.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 30-20 end of 1st 63%fg Butler 12points

Eric Koreen

Knicks-Bulls is seriously making me consider watching the Leafs.

Sean Highkin

Bulls haven't even played well and they're up 30-20 after one. This Knicks team is very not good.

Joe Cowley

Thanks for coming Knicks. Make sure you don't leave the shower shoes in the locker room, and have a nice holiday. Bulls 30-20 after one.

Sam Smith

Mirotic just assisted on last 3 Bulls scores after forcing t/o with his defense. Barkley still working on pronunciation guide during timeout

Chuck Swirsky

21-17 Bulls...Bulls 3 of 4 behind arc... Gasol and Butler have scored 16 of the Bulls 21 points

Steve Popper

Bulls move the ball. Find Tim's man open. Tim drops head.

Tina Cervasio

Things I can post ... when I only do Postgame. #Knicks #Bulls #tipoff #NBA @ United Center instagram.com/p/wxRhicgkBW/

Chuck Swirsky

Gasol with 6. Bulls 11-10

Andrew Keh

Bullsheet is proving useful and also happens to be printed on really high quality paper. Kudos to the Chicago Bulls media staff.

Sam Smith

Travis Wearing Bulls out with 4 pts

KC Johnson

Bulls introduced Hinrich from hometown of Sioux City, Iowa, not Kansas. That's the treatment typically reserved for Rose. "From Chicago . ."

Joe Cowley

Bulls wouldn't have had this depth, and might have had another starter with a knee problem. Golf clap for Melo being selfish.

Andrew Keh

Oh my god, the Bulls amazingly call their pregame notes packet "Bullsheet."

Joe Cowley

JVille vs. Tenn or Bulls vs. Knicks ? Isn't there a Housewives of Cleveland on tonight? Bad TV night.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls Radio is Rollin http://t.co/NudU77aPHg

Mike McGraw

Joakim Noah is expected to start tonight after missing four games with ankle sprain. Carmelo Anthony (knee) is not playing. #Bulls

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls and Knicks starters http://t.co/SlgXNq6bZI

Mike McGraw

Taj Gibson (ankle) won't play for #Bulls tonight, joining Derrick Rose (illness) on the shelf.

Demian Belmonte

Los Knicks con Travis Ware y Cole Aldrich en el quinteto titular ante Bulls. Y luego eran los 76ers los del tanking...

Michael Scotto

New York Knicks starting five is Cole Aldrich, Travis Wear, Amar'e Stoudemire, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Jose Calderon against the Chicago Bulls.

Dennis Rodman

The Carmelo Anthony conundrum - The contents of this page have not been reviewed or endorsed by the Chicago Bulls. ow.ly/2SiKOE

Ian Begley

Fisher tells reporters in Chicago that Calderon, Hardaway Jr., Travis Wear, Stoudemire and Cole Aldrich will start tonight vs. Bulls.

Mike McGraw

I'll assume Derrick Rose's illness is legit, but this is a great time for him to sit out with a game at Memphis tomorrow. #Bulls

Chuck Swirsky

No Melo No Rose but @34Billy42 and I will have the call at 630 CT pre Bulls Radio Net ESPN 1000

Mike McGraw

Derek Fisher is the softest-talking coach in the league, but I think he said Amare is playing after all, since Carmelo is out. #Bulls-Knicks

Tina Cervasio

Aldrich, Stoudemire, Wear, Hardaway Jr, Calderon. #knicks starters vs. #Bulls

Michael Scotto

Carmelo Anthony (sore left ankle) is OUT tonight against the Chicago Bulls. Amar'e Stoudemire will dress according to the New York Knicks.

Tina Cervasio

------> #Knicks RT @NY_KnicksPR: Carmelo Anthony (sore left ankle) will not dress tonight at @Chicago Bulls

Demian Belmonte

Derrick Rose será baja esta noche para el encuentro que enfrenta a Chicago Bulls y New York Knicks.

Tina Cervasio

And from the #Bulls RT @Chris Herring: Thibs says Rose won't play tonight. Gibson will be game-time decision. #Knicks

Tina Cervasio

#Knicks say Amar'e will dress tonight v Bulls more from Fisher in 15 minutes. Remember after @NBAonTNT turn to @MSGNetworks for #NYKExtra

KC Johnson

Bulls leave for Memphis postgame. Thibodeau said it's feasible for Rose to fly there tomorrow if he feels well enough to do so.
