Thibodeau said Rose likely cleared for contact next week. Bulls have 3 offdays between Knicks and Bucks.
Rose did non-contact portion of practice, sat out scrimmage.
Bulls have won 7 straight home games against the Knicks, who will be finishing a back-to-back Saturday night after facing the Celtics Friday
Send off the work week with passion, drive, purpose, urgency. Don't mail it in. Ever. A thousand excuses but your soul knows the truth.
It’s been time for a running clock for about 20 minutes of game time now
What was better, the behind-the-back move or the backwards english on the layup?
Jerry West. Hot Rod Hundley Rod Thorn ain't walking through the door,
Kentucky is Kentucky but no way no chance they could beat an NBA team.
Len Elmore has been and remains a superb analyst . Others may receive the hype but Elmore is all substance. Understated and knowledgable
Horrible time management by Carolina. Foul immediately Wow. Really?
Want to know why TV sports fees keep rising ...? Precisely because of events like NCAA Final 4. Live theater without knowing the outcome.
Roy Williams is so hard to judge because sometimes his teams get run on with no response. Then again he's a really good coach
Mike Brey is a winner. Period. He can flat out coach.
Early 2nd. Bucks. 34 Indiana 18.
Utah Jazz have reached agreement to sign Bucks free agent Chris Johnson for the remainder of the season, league sources tell RealGM.
The Bulls and First Alert teaming up for Safety First at Brown Elementary School. http://t.co/GwjfQKBQo6
Going without cable or internet for this extended period gives you a new appreciation for "Martin" DVD's
Mark Price was just at the United Center the other day as a Hornets assistant. Will be interesting to see how he does as college head coach.
Have an awesome day. Be an encourager. Lift up those who are lonely or hurting. A kind word travels the distance of the universe.
Wheels down Chicago !!!
Wheels up headed to Sweet Home Chicago !
In the 80's the Lakers walked to the Finals every damn year. Conference imbalance is cyclical. A long-assed cycle but cyclical
The playoffs are not about the best 16 teams. It's the exercise to find a champion. Not to get some 9th/10th best seeded team in the West in
Ready to leave Toronto . Many thanks to all the employees at the Air Canada Centre, the fans and Raps organization for their kindness.
My problem with JVG's "take the best 16 teams for the playoffs" argument is simple. Next tweet.
I don't think Philadelphia won the NBA title in 1981, JVG...
Butler: "We don't play to lose that's for sure. I think we can beat anybody. So I don't think it matters what seed we end up in."
Bulls are 113-79 (.589) on road since Thibodeau arrived in '10 & will post 5th straight winning road mark for 1st time in franchise history.
Is Kawhi the only person with cornrows in the league?
Butler: "I think we can beat anybody. So I don’t think it matters what seed we end up in."
More Noah: "Unfortunately there's nobody with a bun, with long hair and a beard -- and a bun -- on the Toronto Raptors. Go Bulls!"
Noah on the errant DeRozan pass: "I was wearing a white shirt. My white practice shirt, so he thought that I was a Toronto Raptor ..."
Hate it or love it.....
Schedule turns favorable for Bulls now with only 2 games in next 7 days. Vs. Knicks, who have struggled all year; Bucks, struggling of late.
Time to rest up, practice and build continuity as the regular season is closing out.
The next week for the Bulls? Bum team Knicks on Saturday, then three practice days before game at the United Center North - Milwaukee.
Noah:"I was wearing a white shirt so (DeRozan) thought I was a Raptor.Unfortunately, there’s nobody with a bun, long hair, beard on Raptors"
Bulls scored on 17 or their last 22 possessions, according to the Raptors.
Bulls win. Wow what a 4th. 39 points
Butler with 23, Snell with 17, Mirotic 15 - home grown and dangerous.
Bulls outscored the Raptors 39-21 in the 4th quarter. Wow.
Bulls shoot season-high 60.8 percent, sweep season series from Raptors and move 11/2 games in front for East's third seed.
Good win for the Bulls. Came back strong down the stretch and showed a lot of toughness. Jimmy Butler leads everybody with 23 points.
The Raptor defense is absolutely terrible. As bad as the East is, Raptors/Wizards would be candidates to get popped...if they weren't 4-5
Toronto about to go 2-6 against the Bulls since last season. Can you say bad matchup?
Was Noah calling for the ball? DeRozan threw it right to him on the bench.
Bulls will post a fifth straight winning road record for the first time in franchise history.
How many wide open looks are the Raptors going to give Aaron Brooks?
Snell has been huge for the Bulls tonight
Bulls109-100. Bull 13 of 17 fgs in the 4th
Bulls have hit every big shot down the stretch. Doing everything they need to do to close this one down.
Bulls defense truly clamping down here in the fourth. Raptors collapsing without Lowry...hell, they'd collapse with Lowry
Great take by Butler right there. Had an advantage, forced refs to blow the whistle. He's looked much, much better tonight.
Vasquez has tied career high with 6-3s
Hinrich right corner long two tied at 95 Snell on fire with 15
Hinrich ties the game at 95 with 6:26 left. After all the rough shooting nights he's had, must feel good to knock down a couple jumpers.
Tony Snell is 6-for-8 from the field. He's got 15 points in 10 minutes. Very good game off the bench.
Bulls do not necessarily own tiebreaker over Raptors because Raptors likely will be division winner and Bulls likely will be 2nd to Cavs.
DeRozan draws technical foul at quarter's end. And it wasn't even Joey Crawford who gave it to him.
DD teed up. After 3. Toronto 82-77
Not a good sequence for Brooks. Blew the defensive assignment, then a bad oop attempt to Taj. Sit young man! Hinrich in.
Raptors outscoring Bulls 32-18 in paint. This is the Bulls' 4th game in 6 nights. Raptors on 2nd night of a back2back. Both teams look tired
That Amir Johnson drive, basket and 3-point chance fairly well representative of very flat defensive effort thus far from Bulls.
Bulls down 9 Need to pick up defensive intensity
Scores that matter to you: Wash beating Indy at half, Miami beating Boston in the second, Char beating Brooklyn in the 3rd.
Toronto 54-50 half
The first time I've heard Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop" in an NBA arena all year. Good pick by the Toronto DJ.
Crazy part about Mirotic's huge March is that he's shooting 25% from 3-point range this month.
Bulls 4th in league in opponents' 3-point percentage. Raptors 6-for-9 thus far.
Bulls fans thoughts ....
Snell hits 2 buckets Bulls close to within 5
Hinrich is 11 for his last 21 from 3-point range.
Bulls trail 29-20 Gasol 12. Ross with 12. Had 9 Friday vs Bulls
