This game at the UC tomorrow night is going to be awesome. Cavs will be angry, Bulls are pumped. LeBron vs. Rose. Atmosphere off the charts.
What if LeBron plays like this all season? (5-15 FGs, 8 TOs)
Trust me Cavs will be ready for the Bulls 630pre Bulls Radio Network ESPN 1000
I think we all expected a gutty bounce-back performance from the Knicks tonight in Cleveland.
Knicks march in to Cleveland win maybe" the biggest game ever".
That possession from Carmelo is making Thibs cringe right now. That's why Bulls wanted him so bad. He can create and hit big shots late.
Forget the triangle. Give Melo the rock and get out of the way!
LeBron took his game to South Beach tonight
Hawks will allow John Jenkins to be a UFA next summer, declining his fourth-year option, sources tell RealGM. Jenkins was 23rd pick in 2012.
Having watched the Knicks in person last night, I really can't believe this score. They are terrible. The Bulls are good, but NYK is brutal.
Noah on atmosphere in United Center tomorrow for home opener with LeBron and Cavs in town: "It's as good as it gets."
Thibodeau on Kyrie Irving: "To characterize him as a young guy is not fair. He’s a superstar."
Butler just blew past McDermott for what appears to be game-winning layup. Losers ran ladder.
Nothing's really changed with Butler's thumb. Thibs says he's day to day now. Yesterday he said nobody knows so let's stick with that.
Game is Butler, E'Twaun, Mirotic & Nazr vs. McDermott, Snell, Bairstow & Adrian Griffin.
Jimmy Butler currently playing 4 on 4, thumb not as heavily taped as it was Tue.
Butler playing 4-on-4 after light practice.
Butler injury update? Back to day-to-day.
According to a source, Bulls and Butler's camp still have open dialogue, but still have a gap in perceived value. Clock is ticking, boys.
Regarding Butler talks, any beat writer knows nothing gets done without a deadline. So this can change. But as of now, large gap remains.
Nothing's going on in Cleveland is there.....what's all the fuss about? Browns practicing in Berea?
Away from the noise and congestion of work,the serenity and peace of faith and peace is above all others12:10Mass http://t.co/tjk8EkaIP6
Thibs on Taj: "He was the best player in training camp and preseason games. He just does his job, lets his performance speak for itself."
Wheels down Chicago!
Flying home at 35-thousand feet trying to convince Neil Funk , Al Gore didn't invent the Internet.
Wheels up headed to Sweet Home Chicago
Was that Jud Buechler sitting behind Warriors bench as Steve Kerr gets first coaching win in Sacramento?
Want a lock?Bochy goes into Hall of Fame when he calls it quits .
Erin Andrews is trending tonight. That is all .
McDermott said his welcome to the NBA moment came when he saw Ben Stiller and Taylor Swift sitting courtside.
Rose: "I think everybody saw how deep we are."
Joe Maddon approved of the Bulls win tonight.
Always a pleasure. Thanks for listening. Up next home opener Friday vs Cavs 630 pre Bulls Radio Network ESPN 1000
Dunleavy outstanding D on Melo
Bulls in a blowout 104-80 final. 6 double figure scorers Taj 22-8. Gasol 21-11 Bulls 50%fg. 25-30 fts. Reb 47-38.
Thibs won't like that 35-point lead being trimmed to 24.
Taj finishes with 22 and 8, 10-12 shooting in 28 mins; Gasol 21 and 11, 7-11 shooting in 29 mins. It's the defense, stupid.
Raise your hand if you thought Cameron Bairstow would make his NBA debut tonight. Not you, Mrs. Bairstow.
How over is this game? Cameron Bairstow is waiting to check in for the first time in a regular season game.
Thibs madly pacing sideline and shouting instructions as Bulls lead shrinks to 33
Bulls go up 100-65. Appear in good shape as first team to 100 in NBA often wins
Bulls embarrassing Knicks now up 33. Brooks with crossover and behind back pass for Gibson layin. Len Chappel and Howard Komives shocked
Bulls in a blowout 98-65 6 double figure players
Could you put money on McDermott dunking in his first NBA game?
That's a nice battle of long arms -- Tony Snell finishes over Cole Aldrich.
Tony Snell with another Space Jam type finish right there.
No you didn't Tony Snell!!!
I hope the NBA is keeping track of accumulated minutes wasted looking at replays of clear-path fouls.
Rose likely done for game with 21 minutes, 13 pts and 5 assists. Noah 20 minutes. What's the deal with Thibs? Just won't play his starters.
Now Brooks and Prigioni with double Ts.I know; I hate being in New York, also. And what's with that Rockefeller Center spit rink?
T-Shirt Toss time for Knicks fans. They should toss them back.
Mirotic checking in. Bad Knicks team allows both Nikola and Tony Snell to get more than the 5 minutes expected.
Thibs with a technical foul up 24 with 10:33 remaining. Bulls can't get a call!
Poor Derek Fisher.
Up 20 and change ... Oh Thibs.
Thibs gets a T -- with his team up by 24. You have to work all night to earn those.
Tech for Thibs.
Be thankful that the opener is against a very bad Knicks team. Nice way to ease into the season.
Thought Aaron Brooks' stint at end of 1st quarter started turning game for Bulls.
As big a lead as the Bulls have right now, if they play this way Friday, Cavs will run them out of the gym.
Bulls 84-60. Gasol 21-10. Gibson 18
Plan A - 14 points, 4 rebounds. Plan B - 21 points, 10 rebounds. Pau Gasol proving to be some Plan B. Sorry Melo, you did not choose wisely.
In battle of big free agents, Pau Gasol 21 and 10; Carmelo Anthony 14 and 4
Does Gasol always scream this much or is this his tribute to Boozer?
Can't wait for Lakers-Knicks this year. Bumfights!
Knicks fan in the stands: "This is like watching a Jets game!"
Good news is Bulls and Butler's camp keep talking, met today. Bad news is big gap remains and deadline is Friday.
Gibson now with 17 points in 17 minutes in run to become first ever league MVP who doesn't start
Bulls cutting up Knicks 74-54 w/4:07 in 3rd. Problem is Knicks having trouble with triangle on defense. The spacing should be on offense
Positives for Melo re-signing with New York - longer summer vacations.
Bulls 74-54 407 left 3rd
Bulls 15-5 run. Gasol 17pts Taj 15
For those that like plus/minus - Rose is a +4. Brooks is a +16. Noah is +3. Gibson is +17.
Bulls up 20. Knicks fans are booing. Gibson and Brooks are rolling. All is right in Thibsland at the moment.
Brooks and Gibson in for Rose and Noah.
Bulls with 65-49 lead; Knicks with 24-second violation. First boos of season. Who knew Boozer was with the Knicks.
Bulls take 63-49 lead w/8:26 in 3rd with quick start. Reserves saying they're grateful don't have to keep propping up team.
