Ha.@Cuse party after game.RT @chrisbleck: College night for Bulls vs. T-Wolves Saturday night. Have fun @Nick Friedell http://t.co/eIzxJ6gg2G

Nick Friedell

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.

Mike McGraw

What if LeBron plays like this all season? (5-15 FGs, 8 TOs)

Chuck Swirsky

Trust me Cavs will be ready for the Bulls 630pre Bulls Radio Network ESPN 1000

Mike McGraw

I think we all expected a gutty bounce-back performance from the Knicks tonight in Cleveland.

Chuck Swirsky

Knicks march in to Cleveland win maybe" the biggest game ever".

Nick Friedell

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.

Chuck Swirsky

Forget the triangle. Give Melo the rock and get out of the way!

Chuck Swirsky

LeBron took his game to South Beach tonight

Chuck Swirsky

Anyone watching Saints -Panthers. LOL #NBA

Shams Charania

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.

Nazr Mohammed

Great event! RT @Url_R: Great to see @Nazr Mohammed at the CVLS gala. Fantastic donations from him. #ChicagoBulls

Nick Friedell

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.

Mike McGraw

Griff's about 4 years older. RT @yerb23: just out of curiosity, who’s younger, Nazr or Adrian?

Pau Gasol

Congrats @HungryBB_! We all loved your photo! Enjoy your 2tix for tomorrow’s game! Thank you all for participating! #BullsPG #1

Nick Friedell

Noah on atmosphere in United Center tomorrow for home opener with LeBron and Cavs in town: "It's as good as it gets."

KC Johnson

Thibodeau on Kyrie Irving: "To characterize him as a young guy is not fair. He’s a superstar."

Mike McGraw

Butler just blew past McDermott for what appears to be game-winning layup. Losers ran ladder.

Nick Friedell

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.

Mike McGraw

Game is Butler, E'Twaun, Mirotic & Nazr vs. McDermott, Snell, Bairstow & Adrian Griffin.

Mike McGraw

Jimmy Butler currently playing 4 on 4, thumb not as heavily taped as it was Tue.

KC Johnson

Butler playing 4-on-4 after light practice.

Joe Cowley

Butler injury update? Back to day-to-day.

Joe Cowley

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.

Joe Cowley

But which NBA star actually had the best shoes to play in - my vote - youtube.com/watch?v=rGr3AJ… No shoe was better.

Joe Cowley

youtube.com/watch?v=5Lt4Qa… And the most underrated shoe commercial of all time.

Joe Cowley

youtube.com/watch?v=ZjFK3L… This set the bar .... until we all found out Spike hated the Bulls and loved the Knicks.

Joe Cowley

This was a good one because it's the last time NBA guys actually wanted to play with Kobe youtube.com/watch?v=XcVkdC…

Joe Cowley

Cavs have already destroyed the Bulls in bad-ass commercials - not even close - youtube.com/watch?v=-8yOG3…

KC Johnson

Regarding Butler talks, any beat writer knows nothing gets done without a deadline. So this can change. But as of now, large gap remains.

Chuck Swirsky

Nothing's going on in Cleveland is there.....what's all the fuss about? Browns practicing in Berea?

Chuck Swirsky

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

Pau Gasol

Partidazo ayer de @Marc Gasol con su máxima anotación en la @NBA! Monster game by Marc last night! NBA career high for him #32points #Grande

Taj continues to lead Bulls' 2nd unit in his own way. RT @ESPNChiBulls: Gibson, new bench, debut with swagger es.pn/1sI87vH

KC Johnson

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."

Sam Smith

Wheels up headed to Sweet Home Chicago

Mike McGraw

Was that Jud Buechler sitting behind Warriors bench as Steve Kerr gets first coaching win in Sacramento?

Pau Gasol

Gran victoria de equipo esta noche en NY! Nuestro banquillo ha jugado muy bien. Ha seguir mejorando! Hora de volar a #Chicago! #SeeRed

Pau Gasol

Great Team wiin tonight in NY against the Knicks! Our bench played very well. Let's keep building! Time to fly back to #Chicago #SeeRed

Chuck Swirsky

Want a lock?Bochy goes into Hall of Fame when he calls it quits .

Chuck Swirsky

Erin Andrews is trending tonight. That is all .

Nikola Mirotic

Good win tonight! Great way to start off the season. Here with @Pau Gasol after the game! #SeeRed #BullsNation http://t.co/vQkj0r4CRr

KC Johnson

McDermott said his welcome to the NBA moment came when he saw Ben Stiller and Taylor Swift sitting courtside.

KC Johnson

Rose: "I think everybody saw how deep we are."

Chuck Swirsky

Joe Maddon approved of the Bulls win tonight.

Chuck Swirsky

Always a pleasure. Thanks for listening. Up next home opener Friday vs Cavs 630 pre Bulls Radio Network ESPN 1000

Chuck Swirsky

Dunleavy outstanding D on Melo

Chuck Swirsky

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.

Mike McGraw

Thibs won't like that 35-point lead being trimmed to 24.

Sam Smith

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.

KC Johnson

Raise your hand if you thought Cameron Bairstow would make his NBA debut tonight. Not you, Mrs. Bairstow.

Nick Friedell

How over is this game? Cameron Bairstow is waiting to check in for the first time in a regular season game.

Sam Smith

Thibs madly pacing sideline and shouting instructions as Bulls lead shrinks to 33

Sam Smith

Bulls go up 100-65. Appear in good shape as first team to 100 in NBA often wins

Sam Smith

Bulls embarrassing Knicks now up 33. Brooks with crossover and behind back pass for Gibson layin. Len Chappel and Howard Komives shocked

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls in a blowout 98-65 6 double figure players

Mike McGraw

Could you put money on McDermott dunking in his first NBA game?

Mike McGraw

That's a nice battle of long arms -- Tony Snell finishes over Cole Aldrich.

Nick Friedell

Tony Snell with another Space Jam type finish right there.

Joe Cowley

No you didn't Tony Snell!!!

Mike McGraw

I hope the NBA is keeping track of accumulated minutes wasted looking at replays of clear-path fouls.

Sam Smith

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.

Sam Smith

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?

Joe Cowley

T-Shirt Toss time for Knicks fans. They should toss them back.

Joe Cowley

Mirotic checking in. Bad Knicks team allows both Nikola and Tony Snell to get more than the 5 minutes expected.

Sam Smith

Thibs with a technical foul up 24 with 10:33 remaining. Bulls can't get a call!

Joe Cowley

Up 20 and change ... Oh Thibs.

Nick Friedell

Thibs gets a T -- with his team up by 24. You have to work all night to earn those.

Joe Cowley

Be thankful that the opener is against a very bad Knicks team. Nice way to ease into the season.

KC Johnson

Thought Aaron Brooks' stint at end of 1st quarter started turning game for Bulls.

Joe Cowley

As big a lead as the Bulls have right now, if they play this way Friday, Cavs will run them out of the gym.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 84-60. Gasol 21-10. Gibson 18

Joe Cowley

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.

Sam Smith

In battle of big free agents, Pau Gasol 21 and 10; Carmelo Anthony 14 and 4

Mike McGraw

Does Gasol always scream this much or is this his tribute to Boozer?

Nick Friedell

Bulls just dominating the Knicks in every facet right now. Gasol has 21 points and 10 rebounds. #holdat

Joe Cowley

Can't wait for Lakers-Knicks this year. Bumfights!

Nick Friedell

Knicks fan in the stands: "This is like watching a Jets game!"

KC Johnson

Good news is Bulls and Butler's camp keep talking, met today. Bad news is big gap remains and deadline is Friday.

Sam Smith

Gibson now with 17 points in 17 minutes in run to become first ever league MVP who doesn't start

Sam Smith

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

Mike McGraw

For starters, the Three Big system is working well for #Bulls. Gasol has 17 pts, while Taj has 15 pts in 16 mins.

Joe Cowley

Positives for Melo re-signing with New York - longer summer vacations.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 74-54 407 left 3rd

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 15-5 run. Gasol 17pts Taj 15

Joe Cowley

For those that like plus/minus - Rose is a +4. Brooks is a +16. Noah is +3. Gibson is +17.

Nick Friedell

Bulls up 20. Knicks fans are booing. Gibson and Brooks are rolling. All is right in Thibsland at the moment.

Joe Cowley

Brooks and Gibson in for Rose and Noah.

Sam Smith

Bulls with 65-49 lead; Knicks with 24-second violation. First boos of season. Who knew Boozer was with the Knicks.

Sam Smith

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.
