Yea, call me nuts freezing temps but I love walking around Chicago! http://t.co/W65zRX4msd
Russell Westbrook in February -- 31.2 pts, 10.3 asts, 9.1 rebs, .457 FG pct. He's expected to play with protective mask tonight vs. 76ers.
Let's call Wednesday a day of sunshine for the Bulls, delivered by me, Mr. Positive.
If Dominique Wilkins gets a statue in Atl, and Magic/MJ have one, then without a doubt Isiah Thomas should have one.
Bulls list Mirotic probable w/ left shoulder contusion that he stretched throughout Wiz game. He'll play vs. OKC. Rose, Butler, Gibson out.
Ray Allen will not play in the NBA this season and has decided to reassess his status for 2015-16, his agency Tandem says.
For tomorrow versus Oklahoma City: Rose, Butler, Gibson-out. Nikola Mirotić (left shoulder contusion) is probable.
Noah and his mother, Cecilia, have put together necklaces with tear drops on them, with the hope of more programs for kids.
The website is still a work in progress, but will be launched soon.
Noah said he hadn't seen a replay of Nene's flagrant foul.
Speaking of averages, Russell Westbrook averaged 31.2 points, 9.1 rebounds and 10.3 assists over 13 games in February.
Thibodeau praised McDermott's defense vs. Wizards, said he'll get another opportunity.
Thibs says Gibson is out of the boot. Still doesn't sound like he'll play for a little bit.
Gibson shed his walking boot. Still no basketball activity.
In 15 games since Noah said he felt best he has all season, he's averaging 8.8 points, 12.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists. Bulls 9-6.
Dunleavy: "Our antennas were up and we were ready to go. We’ve got to have that focus and effort the next couple of weeks."
Brooks w/22&8: "I haven’t started a game for who knows how long. I was struggling at the beginning of it, but hopefully it’s been cleared up
Gasol: "Niko, every time he’s had a chance to play substantial minutes this year has done pretty well. He’s played at a very high level."
Pau w/20 and 10 on win: "With our minds and hearts into it a lot of things can happen, so we just bring our will every night."
Noah on Wiz: "They are the team that eliminated us in the playoffs last year. When that happens it’s always more than just a basketball game
Noah on Mirotic hi 23: "Niko is a stud; floor spacing is very important as you watch the trend of the league; Niko can do that very well."
Noah on win over Wiz: "We’ve just got to hold the fort until those guys come back; a lot of the young (guys) really stepped up in a big game
Noah: "Trying to teach these kids the big picture, so it wouldn’t have been a good look (engaging over Nene's flagrant foul)."
Noah on "You're Not Alone" video released Tuesday: "I’m happy I kept my composure (with Nene). Just put out a video about non violence."
Thibodeau on Nene flagrant foul on Noah and six fouls: “Just exchanging pleasantries. Everything is good."
Noah on the flagant (cont’d): "I really don’t know what to say right now, but I’m just happy we won and I’m happy I kept my composure"
Noah on Nene’s flagrant : Just put out a video about non-violence and trying to teach these kids big picture,wouldn’t have been a good look
Mirotic has said how little he has lifted in past. Skill level apparent every game. With strength and knowledge of league, lot of potential.
If Bulls play the Wizards in the playoffs I guarantee you ll see plenty of Joey Crawford. This is a throwback series http://t.co/O5017FR18Q
"and trying to teach these kids big picture. So it wouldn’t have been a good look, not today. You know what I mean? Not today.’’ Noah.
"Happy I kept my composure. You know, just trying to put out a video a couple of hours before the game about non-violence ... ''
Noah said that he didn't go after Nene because since he released an anti-violence video today for kids, it wouldn't have looked good.
Asked Thibs on his way out if Bulls/Wiz is a rivalry: “They’re good, so I guess it is.” I.E. “We’ve been good for awhile now, they haven’t"
Dunleavy on Wizards: "If they played everybody else the way they play us they may be looking at a championship."
Noah, whose foundation just produced that powerful anti-violence video, joked about how retaliating on Nene "wouldn't have been a good look"
Noah on Nene flagrant: "I'm happy I kept my composure."
Thibs: "It's going to be a collective effort." That's the truth.
1st time Nene has fouled out without scoring a single point in 787 NBA games..wowza
Mirotic finishes with 23 points and 8 rebounds. Another impressive game for a player the Bulls are depending on more and more each night.
Bulls win Bulls win Bulls win 97-92---Gasol- Noah with dbls....Niko-23 off the bench- 22-8- Brooks
Any win without Rose, Butler and Gibson is a good one. This one has to feel even better for Bulls because they can't stand the Wizards.
Impressive win. Great fight. Hoiberg will love this team!
Wizards lose 8th straight road game.
97-92 Bulls with 8 sec left.....a remarkable gutty win for the Bulls...tough, physical game. Playoff atmosphere...Brutal battle.
Big rebound by Gasol -- got good position under the rim and may have just iced the game with a couple free throws.
95-91 Bulls 34sec left
Mirotic at the line with 35.5 seconds left. Can put a little distance there. Makes 1 of 2
Bulls 94-91 1:49 left 4th
Bulls 94-88 2:21 left 4th
Snell’s triple puts Bulls up 89-79
When Bulls have been short-handed through years, Joakim Noah makes it his personal mission to will them to win games they probably shouldn't
Snell for 3----BAM....89-79--Bulls 422 left Brooks with 8 assists
Wiz the new "Bad Boys?'' Except a really bad version of them.
Nene fouls out. His line for the night: 21 minutes, 0/4 from the field, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 6 fouls.
Nene cheap shots Noah from behind for 6th foul; Laimbeer asking to adopt him
Nene gets a standing O as he fouls out scoreless in 21 minutes. Gotta back up the talk, big fella
Nene throws down Noah ... fouled out with 0 points. Enjoy the flight Nene.
Nene just fouled out scoreless with six rebounds.
Mirotic with nice recognition there. Porter on him. Posted him up. Called for ball.
That's 8 straight double-digit rebounding games from Noah.
Overhead in Wizards' huddle; issue of them losing cool appears to be over Netanyahu speech to Congress
Bulls 80-72 flagrant one on Nene--in my opinion that was a flagrant two---he should be in the locker-room right NOW
Pierce with a technical to add to it; still upset Ray Allen went to Miami
Nene gets a flagrant 1. Stays in the game with 5 fouls. These two teams still hate each other. Now Pierce gets a T. Bulls miss 2 free throws
Bum team doing what bum teams do.
Now Pierce T’d up for jawing at Aaron Brooks during the FT. The ref was there listening the whole time
Pierce now gets the T....nice discipline Wiz.
Nene with a Nono; flagrant foul
Flagrant 1 - I guess because they couldn't find the weapon.
Flagrant 1 foul on Nene
Paul Pierce and Joakim Noah shoved each other during the preseason. Tom Thibodeau calls it chatter. But there's something with these teams.
If that Morris twin foul on Dragic was a flagrant 2, then this foul from Nene has to be right in the same family
Nene with a smackdown of Noah on roll; looks like flagrant foul. They're even appalled in Brazil
Nene didn't even attempt to go for the ball. Just hammered Noah.
Hit the eject button.
