Nick Friedell

Of course, key with Thibs is that he just doesn't care what anyone else thinks. He's going to do what he feels is best for his team. Period.

Nick Friedell

Big break for Thibs: NYK ended up coming back to beat TOR. If Bulls had won they would be 3 seed and Thibs would have gotten crushed.

Nick Friedell

Best part of night for the Bulls is that they end up in ideal spot despite loss. Play Wizards and then Indy/ ATL winner if they get past 1st

Chuck Swirsky

Odds on Obama attending Bulls-Wizards?

16th regular season in the books. Time for the NBA Playoffs. Focused and determined #BullsNation #SeeRed #Holdat

Chuck Swirsky

Ok Raps. Nets wanted you. Enjoy the playoffs. I ll be watching. My frig is full of salami and cheese !

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls open up with the Wiz Sunday at 6

Mike McGraw

Raptors lost to NY, but didn't play starters in 4thQ. Might have been different if Bulls had won tonight.

Nick Friedell

Bulls will play Wizards in the 1st round. Game 1 is Sunday at 6 CT.

KC Johnson

It's official: Bulls vs. Wizards. Pretty much dream scenario transpired for Bulls, who would face Pacers in 2nd round if they advance.

Mike McGraw

My bad, there were two '05 Wizards still active -- Steve Blake and Antawn Jamison. Was thinking Jamison was hurt all yr.

Sam Smith

Appears Bulls will open playoffs 6pm Sunday on CSN against DC in bracket opposite Heat. Tho now have to win games.

Mike McGraw

Just one player on Wizards '05 playoff active roster still playing in the league. Four '05 Bulls played in league this yr (5 if count Deng)

KC Johnson

Noah:"Like my boy Dunleavy just told me, this is the fruit of our labor. Now we have fun."Dunleavy:"Pretty sure I said it better than that."

KC Johnson

Noah: "Before you start asking any questions, I would like to say I appreciate my teammates for a hard season. We worked our asses off."

Aggrey Sam

At least Jo got some fresh old school Patrick Ewing kicks out of the trip

Mike McGraw

Wonder is Steve Francis will be in the seats cheering for the Wizards like he was in '05?

KC Johnson

What a season for Joakim Noah. But biggest stat may be 80 games played. my.chicagotribune.com/#section/-1/ar…

Mike McGraw

End of 3Qs: Wizards up by 16; Nets down by 17. Bulls-Wash looking likely. So many memories of 2005.

Nick Friedell

Jimmy Butler played 48 minutes. Joakim Noah played 42 minutes. Wow.

Sam Smith

Bulls finish reg season 48-34 with 91-86 o/t loss to Bobcats. Get fourth seed in conference. Still awaiting first round opponent

Chuck Swirsky

Bobcats win 91-86 OT

Nick Friedell

It's over. Bobcats with 91-86 in OT. The Bulls are the fourth seed in the East.

Chuck Swirsky

Bobcats 88-81. 57sec left

Sam Smith

That may do it: McRoberts blocks DJ jumper; Kemba with full court layup. 88-81 'cats w/1:01. Bulls heading to 4th against don't know yet

Nick Friedell

Kemba Walker probably just ended this one: Bobcats up 88-81. Jimmy Butler is about to enter his 48th minute of play.

Chuck Swirsky

Bobcats by 5 with 115 left Bulls ball

Sam Smith

Michael Jordan now standing at end of Bobcats bench with 90 secs left and Charlotte up 3. Put me in, coach!

Sam Smith

These teams take enough shots with 24-second clock running out to make the clock going off a part-of-game sound effect. 'cats by 4 in o/t

Aggrey Sam

Refs reviewing last call, ball went out of bounds and was awarded to Bobcats.

KC Johnson

Bulls haven't scored since Augustin jumper at 2:27 of regulation.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls down 84-80. Bull have missed last 8 shots. Scoreless last 5 min

Sam Smith

Bulls go to o/t 80-80 in game that may not matter with Toronto ahead 13 at halftime. Thibs over my shoulder in fury as they all matter!

KC Johnson

Nothing like a 47-minute night for Jimmy Butler to get ready for playoffs.

Nick Friedell

Kemba Walker misses at the buzzer. We are headed to OT. I know, I know it's Thibs -- I still can't believe it.

Aggrey Sam

Kirk blown away by that called, almost walked into the tunnel...fouled out with 35.9, Kemba ties it at the line

Nick Friedell

Hinrich fouls out. He's so angry he almost walked straight to locker room.

Chuck Swirsky

Great action here. Bulls 80-77 1:19 left 4th

Chuck Swirsky

Hinrich left pocket 3. Onions Baby Onions. 78-75 Bulls 258 left 4th

Sam Smith

Nobody appears to have told Noah Raps leading big and result may be moot as just threw himself to floor chasing loose ball in full out dive

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 72-70 Noah 12-10-6. Boozer 14-11. 547 left 4th

Nick Friedell

Toronto is killing the Knicks right now -- so this game may not end up meaning anything for the Bulls.

Chuck Swirsky

67-65 Bulls Noah 10-8-5

Sam Smith

Bulls 60-59 after three. Wiz up big; Nets down big. Raptors up 7. If holds order is Ind, Mia, Tor, Chi, DC, Nets, 'Cats, Hawks

Bulls up 60-59 at the end of 3. Very ugly game. Thibs hasn't changed minutes up much so far -- will that change if CHA gets up in 4th?

Noah flings up an airball, hears it from the crowd, and laughs at himself while he heads to the bench.

Nick Friedell

Bobcats up 43-39 at the half. Thibs won't be happy with fact CHA is out-rebounding Bulls 23-17 -- but a Bulls L puts them in best situation

Aggrey Sam

Bulls were once up 31-31, now trail 37-35.

Bulls' D looks playoff ready. Bobcats are 9-for-30 from the field and not getting many clean looks.

Aggrey Sam

That's not how it's done, Jimmy.

Sam Smith

May not be difference in playoffs. But with Amundson Bulls now lead all playoff teams in ponytails.

Asked Thibodeau pregame if he liked that Bobcats are playing to win like Bulls. "Most teams do," he said. Guess he hasn't seen Nets lineup.

Aggrey Sam

Mike, who flew in before the game, is sitting on the Charlotte bench.
