Sam Smith

Hinrich with driving floater to give Bulls 91-86 lead w/1:32; Rose can rest an extra week. Kirk's got it.

Steve Aschburner

Close entertaining game in CHI, Bulls 89, Wolves 85, 2:43 4Q. But no Garnett so, alas, no this... http://t.co/xUViBLKLMW

Jerry Zgoda

Bulls 84, Wolves 79 with 6:22 left. Wolves had GR3, Wiggins and Zach out there for a good bit in 4th qtr, now have AP, AW, Pek, Neal & Ricky

Sam Smith

Good for Thibs sticking with Brooks at 1-14. With guys like him they all feel good leaving his hand. Brooks' 3 gives Bulls 84-79 lead

Chuck Swirsky

Brooks for 3------...84-79 Bulls 6:22 4th Snell has scored 10or more in 10 of last 16games

Cavs lose. Wizards lose 6th straight. Raptors getting crushed by Warriors. Good night for a Rose-less victory from Bulls.

Jerry Zgoda

Vincent Goodwill

Bulls shooting 37 percent but if you take away Aaron Brooks’ 1-12, they’re at 44 percent. Not great, but better

Mike McGraw

Cavs & Wizards lose; Raptors trail by 30 in 4thQ. Opportunity is there for #Bulls to gain some ground tonight.

Chuck Swirsky

Thanks for listening to Bulls Radio ! Bulls 60-56 Noah flirting with triple dbl 8-8-7

Vincent Goodwill

Considering the Raptors getting clowned at home and Washington losing to Philly, the Bulls in a dogfight vs Minny is par for the course

Sam Smith

'wolves open 2nd half 7-0 to tie game; good there's a shot clock or Bulls might not have shot yet.

Joel Brigham

Last time I was in St. Louis was for Bulls preseason at Scottrade. Tomorrow night, I'm back. With my 4-year-old. For "Frozen" on Ice.

Vincent Goodwill

Butler and Dunleavy didn’t do it last game, but have combined for 27 in the first half tonight. Bulls up 51-44 at halftime

Chuck Swirsky

Mike Dunleavy has been terrific...3-3s...he's got 13 Bulls 51-44 half

Jerry Zgoda

Bulls 51, Wolves 44 at the half

Mike McGraw

#Bulls might be onto something with the multiple-shooter lineup. Dunleavy has hit 3 in a row while Snell or McDermott were also on floor.

Steve Aschburner

Bulls had this "Totally '90s" game-night promotion planned long before Timberwolves brought Kevin Garnett (No. 5, 1995) to town. Kismet.

Sam Smith

Bulls up 32-27 w/8:37 left in 2nd. Bulls hosting themed 90's night at game. Coaches seem confused and must feel can't score more than that

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 32-27 early 2nd. Bulls with Niko-Kirk- Nazr- Etwan and Tony-1st time this year

Chuck Swirsky

Taj Gibson heading to Bulls' locker room on hurting ankle. Bulls lead 21-19 with 2:50 left in 1st qtr in Chicago
