Bulls' 2nd unit has played very well but it's time for Thibs to go back to starting group. Blazers have all the momentum again.

Paul Allen cross-promotion. Blazers have a Seahawks night at the end of the month when fans can get a picture with Lombardi trophy.

Year 17 RT @sean2m: Nazr Mohammed was born 3 months after the Blazers won the NBA title. And he's playing in this game.

The spacing with this Bulls second unit is an interesting wrinkle to the game. Blazers second unit usually tries to play big.

Blazers 32, Bulls 21 after Q1. Portland shooting 66 percent to 28 for Chicago. LaMarcus Aldridge has 12 points.

Erik Gundersen

Pretty sure Mirotic blocked that ball off the glass for that Kaman bucket. But Blazers lead 32-21 after 1Q. Feels like it should be more.

Mike Richman

Only thing going wrong for the Blazers on offense is free throw shooting...1-for-4 at the line.

Wow, #Blazers are shooting 70.6%, Bulls at 21.1%. Crazy.

Safe to say no rust formed during the Blazers' three-day layoff. They're locked in at the offensive end.

Erik Gundersen

Blazers starting five looking great early. Bulls struggling to get good shots. Blazers up 16-3 with 6:41 left in the 1st Q.

Mike McGraw

Hope there's another game ESPN can switch to. #Bulls fall behind Blazers 16-3. Bulls 1-11 FGs, Por 7-8.

Sam Smith

Bulls early strategy appears to be to give Blazers overconfidence. Portland 16-3 start. Yes, it's working.

Mike Richman

Bulls 1-for-11. Damian Lillard hitting pull up threes. Related: Blazers lead 16-3, 6:38 1Q

Kerry Eggers

Bulls 1-for-11 shooting as @Portland Trail Blazers jump to 16-3 lead

Kerry Eggers

The old up-and-under move served @Robin Lopez well on that drive to hoop. #Blazers lead 13-3 five minutes in

Mike McGraw

Blazers haven't played since Monday. It'll be a surprise if #Bulls can even stay in the game tonight.

Erik Gundersen

Batum with the first four points for the Blazers.

Erik Gundersen

Bulls starting Brooks, Butler, Dunleavy, Gibson, Noah. Blazers with the old five back together for the first time in almost two weeks.

Kevin Pelton

Pregame message wishing Blazers fans a Happy Thanksgiving from Meyers Leonard and Meyers Leonard's moustache.

Mike Richman

Reggie Jackson's potential game-winner off at the buzzer. Oklahoma City slips to 3-11. Bad for the Thunder, great for the Blazers

Erik Gundersen

Unsure what's louder, volume on Blazers in-arena videos or the Justin Timberlake concert

Erik Gundersen

Blazers Notebook: Chicago's Thibodeau is Damian Lillard's "kind of guy" columbian.com/news/2014/nov/…

Erik Gundersen

Blazers activate Nicolas Batum.

Mike Tokito

Boy, if Rose and Hinrich are both out for Bulls vs. #Blazers, is Aaron Brooks gonna play 48 minutes?
