First words out of Noah's mouth to the media in the locker room: "We got our asses kicked."
Thibs takes blame for the loss. Says Bulls had no edge and it's his fault
Stat of the night: Spurs outscored Bulls 38-14 in the first quarter. Game over.
Bulls make a ballgame of it in the 4th quarter but lose 104-97
Kind of a fun finish with crowd into it chanting "defense," Bulls starters on bench standing and Spurs lead to 10. But just 1:14 left
Spurs lead 102-89 219 left 4th Bulls ball
Bulls lineup of Mohammed, Fredette, Augustin, Snell and Gibson has deficit to 16 with 4:28 left. New starters?
Bulls fans thanks for listening tonight to Bulls Radio--we love ya---
DJ for 3----18 for DJ 97-80 Spurs 528 left 4th
Spurs lead 94-68 854 left 4th
Nazr Mohammed in for Noah with 9:48 left in game and Bulls trailing 94-68. That would make it just about official.
Spurs 90-66 we go to the 4th
Manu with another 3 ball...11-15 Spurs 3pt range--story of the game 84-60
The Bulls are showing at least a few signs of life in 3rd quarter. Still getting crushed though.
Bulls got it to 73-53 with about 4 minutes in third. Manu then with five straight. May have been Bulls "NBA teams always make a run" moment
Manu open 3 ball left pocket 78-53 Spurs 10-14 behind arc..story of game 325 left 3rd
71-47 Spurs---620 left 3rd Bulls chipping away at San Antonio lead
Bulls really are competing hard in being down 71-47. Certainly makes the case you don't want to count out the Spurs for another title run
Dunleavy the hoop and harm 66-43 Spurs
Kawhi Leonard just drove 20 feet on a diagonal to the basket and slammed without anyone helping for Bulls. Say, goodnight, Gracie
early 3rd 63-35 Spurs
My man Bill always in a humorous mood http://t.co/Nrl85sF0Vw
Thoughts on 2nd half....
Also, the Spurs are very, very good.
Bulls head into halftime trailing 61-33. How does that go: You get it under 30 and you have a shot?
Bulls down 61-33 at the half. Thibs talked about readiness to play before the game. Guess that message didn't get through as well as usual.
Bulls got the deficit down to 28 at half. Maybe they'll get a boost from Boozer's defensive stop vs. Parker as time expired.
Halftime Spurs 61-33
Jimmer Fredette checks in with 53 seconds left in half and Bulls down 30. Crowd alive and expecting 30-point play
Jimmer is in with 53 seconds left in 1stH. The fans love him already.
It's JimmerTime in the second quarter. Loudest crowd has been all night since game started.
Jimmer is in the game.
Bulls down 57-25 242 left 2nd
Hey, how 'bout that Thunder/Rockets game?
Microcosm for the night: Taj Gibson just missed one of his wide open thunder dunks. Everything going wrong for the Bulls.
Nothing's going right for the Bulls.
The odds of Noah dropping a: "We got our ass kicked" after this game are about 1/10 right now in Vegas.
Spurs 53-23 612 left 1st half
Bulls tied with Spurs...bench. Spurs backups 23, Bulls 23.
Patty Mills with the 94 feet D on DJ after made Spurs baskets.
Bulls down 30 and there are guys scoring now I never heard of: Back to back scores by Aron Baynes
If anyone came to this game to watch Jimmer Fredette, they may be in luck.
Bulls down 47-19 852 left2nd Q
Spurs running a basketball clinic with early 2nd quarter 47-19 lead. Only real Bulls advantage is they didn't have to pay to get in.
Spurs are 6-for-8 from 3-pt range after Marco buries two in opening 90 secs on 2ndQ.
Of course, Spurs start 2nd Q with full-court press.
Parker 16pts 5 assts 1st Q
Tony Parker had a nice 1stQ: 16 pts, 5 asts and 6-8 FGs. Bulls need to get more than zero from Boozer and Dunleavy in games like this.
Bulls defense closes first quarter strong as Spurs shooting down to 71.4 percent: 38-14 Spurs. Where are the easy teams like Miami?
38-14 Spurs after 1st quarter. I thought Thibs may be a little concerned about a hangover after Heat win. Bulls getting worked early.
Spurs 38-14 after 1---that's all I got
"As soon as you exhale in this league..." Bulls got smacked around by Spurs in 1stQ. Trail 38-14 as SA shoots 71.4 pct (15 for 21).
Marco gets some love from the fans when he checks in.
HS teammates Tony Snell and Kawhi Leonard on the court together.
Spurs 26-11- 240 left 1st Leonard 7pts 5 reb Duncan 4pts 5 reb Parker-12pts
Spurs with 21-6 start;crowd in awe of 4 amazing box outs, 3 incredible defensive switches, 2 diagonal cuts and a partridge in a pear tree
Spurs 21-6 444 left 1st Spurs 9 of 11 Bulls 2-12- Spurs have made 8 str shots
Bulls getting blown off court so far, trail 21-6. Parker and Leonard have scored all but 2 pts, going right at Hinrich and Butler.
Make that 2-10.
Bulls off to a 2-9 start, Spurs shooting 9-11.
The Bulls are getting worked all over the floor. Not a good start for a team that just had its most emotional win of the year.
Looks like Kawhi isn't aware of Jimmy's defensive rep. Or doesn't care.
Tony Parker has been a one-man show so far for Spurs. What happened to team basketball?
Bulls start out down 7-0.
The ovation for Joakim Noah during pre-game introductions seems to grow louder each game.
Bulls fans...thoughts about tonight???
Gregg Popovich on if this is his best coaching job to date: "Haven't they all been brilliant?"
Chef Mike runs the show at the UC. Awesome person http://t.co/W2jJM6j4S7

The Bulls staff has some tremendous assistants and all should be considered to be head coaches as well. Outstanding men with character.

Been reading sports web sites today about the possibility of Steve Kerr becoming a head coach. I would endorse that 100%. He'll be great.

Lowry crosses line before ball hits rim..lane violation
Um, did I miss something here Mr. Kidd?

After playing great team defense...Ross turns the ball over..Livingston headed to the line 22.8 sec left. 99-96 Nets.
Nets 97-96-63 sec left Nets ball
Paul Pierce rockin a right wing 3---97-94 Nets with 1:14 left
Noah saying he can't wait for Rose to come back could mean this year, next year or the year after.
Football web sites reporting Bears release Michael Bush...wish we would have used him more.
Thibodeau on the Spurs: "To me, they’re the gold standard of the league in terms of their consistency of winning year after year."
