Chuck Swirsky

Trap game for the Bulls.....down 71-60 454 left 3rd..intensity has picked up--defense has not

Mike McGraw

#Bulls picked up the defense in the second half, but now getting killed on second-chance points.

Chuck Swirsky

The great Tom Petty http://t.co/pEFR7rFi03

Nick Friedell

The Bulls should be embarrassed. They are losing 59-48 at halftime. Getting out-rebounded 22-12. They have just 3 fast break points.

KC Johnson

Bulls allow 59 first-half points and 58.7% shooting by the Lakers.

Sam Smith

Bulls down 13, being beaten up on boards. And now the bad news. Boozer back in game for Lakers

Nick Friedell

Such a bad effort from the Bulls so far. They look like they are just going through the motions.

Nick Friedell

Bulls seem lifeless against a bad team. Stop me if you've heard that one before.

Chuck Swirsky

Lakers 8 of 12 fgs in 2nd

Chuck Swirsky

Lakers 28-19 after 1....Lakers 56% fg

Nick Friedell

Always so many Bulls fans in Staples. It really is like another home game most nights for Bulls. Well, it's louder here than in UC.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls down 22-14 246 left 1st

Joe Cowley

Energy Bulls stayed in San Francisco and went straight to Phoenix. We get Don't Care Bulls tonight I guess.

Chuck Swirsky

Lakers 16-8 Bulls 33%

Sam Smith

Boozer's revenge! Loose ball and jumper, offensive rebound and putback. 16-8 Lakers. Hey, he's a free agent after this season

Nick Friedell

The people watching at Lakers games is still top notch -- even if the team stinks.

Joe Cowley

No one likes Boozer ... anywhere he plays.

Sam Smith

Mirotic gets second start start in 16th different Bulls starting lineup as mad scientist Thibs at it again with Mirotic at 3 ; Dunleavy out

Nick Friedell

No Dunleavy again. Mirotic getting a start and stretching out the floor. Bulls should rack up plenty of points with this lineup tonight.

Nick Friedell

Got to love that the theme from "Welcome Back Kotter" played as Pau's video rolled on the JumboTron.

Nick Friedell

Pau Gasol getting a standing ovation from Lakers fans.

KC Johnson

Bulls starting Mirotic, Gasol, Noah, Butler and Rose.

Jimmy Butler proud about All-Star selection. blogs.bulls.com/2015/01/jimmy-…

KC Johnson

Dunleavy out for 15th straight game.

KC Johnson

Butler on All-Star: "I still feel like I have a long way to go to get where I want to get, to get where we want to get as a team."

Nick Friedell

Butler: "So if you see me diving on the floor and people are like, "What is he doing? I can't help but be the player that I am."

Nick Friedell

Butler joked that he would still play D in the All-Star Game: "They might not, but I do."

Nick Friedell

Jimmy on ASG "I think everybody would love to make the All-Star team in their career. I feel like I've come a long way since I started here"

Nick Friedell

The Pau Gasol shirt that fans are getting tonight. http://t.co/JyE24SvvZC

KC Johnson

Butler credited Houston-based trainer Chris Johnson for All-Star berth. Tribune profiled Johnson's role here: trib.in/1zbseKU

KC Johnson

Jimmy Butler, smiling, when reminded defense isn't played much at All-Star games: "They may not. But I do."

KC Johnson

Thibs on Butler: "We’re thrilled for him. He has worked extremely hard to put himself in that position. His teammates are excited for him."

Joe Cowley

Dunleavy looks frustrated. He's out.

Joe Cowley

Dunleavy will warm up and then make a decision.

Joe Cowley

Biggest snub in the East? The Korver!

Wonder what the Bulls will do in the 2016-17 season for Derrick when he comes back into town as a Laker .... hmmmmm.....

Joe Cowley

Lakers planning Gasol tribute tonight, and handing out T-Shirts to honor their former big man.

KC Johnson

This is the 14th time in franchise history the Bulls have at least two All-Stars. Pau Gasol is a starter and Jimmy Butler a reserve.

Joel Brigham

There is literally no reason @DeMarcus Cousins shouldn't have made the All-Star game. Duncan gets the legacy vote over the guy who deserved it.

Chuck Swirsky

Happy Birthday @staceyking

Chuck Swirsky

Congratulations to @Jimmy Butler All Star .

KC Johnson

Updated Tribune story on Jimmy Butler's 1st All-Star appearance and DRose missing out. fw.to/aRQC2qM

KC Johnson

DRose didn't expect it so won't be surprised. @"NBATV: Here are the #NBAAllStarNYC Eastern Conference reserves! http://t.co/PvL9gR8a8b”

Joe Cowley

Butler in for All-Star. Rose out.

KC Johnson

Confirming @Adrian Wojnarowski news that Jimmy Butler has been voted by coaches as an East All-Star reserve.

Shams Charania

Atlanta Hawks forward Paul Millsap has been selected to the NBA Eastern Conference All-Star reserve team, league source tells RealGM.

Nikola Mirotic

Que decir de Felipe Reyes !! Es un ejemplo de superación en el deporte. Enhorabuena capitán

Pau Gasol

Tonight will be very special for me. Back at #Staples to play in front of the #Laker family will be very meaningful and emotional.

Pau Gasol

Esta noche será un partido muy especial para mi. Volver a jugar en el #Staples delante de la afición de los #Lakers será muy emotivo.

Chuck Swirsky

For tonight at L.A. Lakers: Mike Dunleavy (right ankle) is questionable. Jimmy Butler (illness) is probable.

Mike McGraw

#Bulls calling Jimmy Butler probable and Mike Dunleavy questionable for tonight vs. LAL

Pau Gasol

Today it's @Marc Gasol birthday! Send him your happy birthday wishes, since he turns 30! I already have :)

Joel Brigham

I love what the Hawks have done this year, but I'm still surprised to see them at the top of the Power Rankings: basketballinsiders.com/nba-power-rank…

Nick Friedell

Gar, Pax and Thibs all want to win very badly. If Bulls start winning, this talk will die down. But if they start losing, it will get worse.

KC Johnson

More Gar: ". to detract us from our ultimate goal. The focus of the entire organization from top to bottom is on winning basketball games."

Pau Gasol

Avui és l'aniversari del @Marc Gasol! Envieu-li la vostra felicitació pels seus 30 anyets acabats de fer!

KC Johnson

More Gar: "We are very proud of what the team and our players have accomplished to this point in the season, and we will not allow anything

KC Johnson

Gar Forman: "While as an organization we try to avoid responding to rumors, there is absolutely no basis to this recent speculation." (Cont)

Pau Gasol

Hoy es el cumpleaños de @Marc Gasol! Mandarle vuestras felicitaciones por su 30 añitos recién cumplidos!

Nick Friedell

Sad part for Bulls is this group, led by Thibs, is better together than it would be apart. One cure-all for any tension is simple: Winning.

Nick Friedell

The 6-of-8 losing skid and surrounding speculation was one thing, but JVG comments were like lighting a match around gasoline.

Nick Friedell

Thibs wanted no part of questions regarding his relationship with front office. Tension between Gar/Pax-Thibs appears higher than ever.

Nick Friedell

Here at UCLA: This sums up the Bulls' season -- on and off the floor -- pretty well. http://t.co/WnsTH9cqwY

Derrick Rose says Jimmy Butler should be an All-Star. blogs.bulls.com/2015/01/rose-p…

No Swaggy P vs Bulls. Ankle.

Joe Cowley

Thibs poker faces front office questions, but campaigns for #1 to be an All-Star - chicago.suntimes.com/basketball/7/7…

KC Johnson

Rose said he'd be honored if he made All-Star but not disappointed if he didn't: "It's all about winning games and being healthy."

KC Johnson

Thibodeau on Butler's All-Star chances: "I knew he’d be really good. But I didn’t know he’d be this good."

Taj Gibson

LA traffic but still a nice day #SeeRed http://t.co/tB7A2UcpMQ

Joe Cowley

Thibs not commenting on job status.

KC Johnson

Thibodeau wouldn't answer questions about his future or relationship with front office.

Joe Cowley

Butler is a go. Dunleavy a we'll see.

Nick Friedell

Thibs thinks Butler will play. Dunleavy is a game time decision

KC Johnson

Butler is a go vs. Lakers. Dunleavy gametime.

Nick Friedell

Driving through LA to shootaround reminds me of driving to the Berto. Traffic is miserable. I don't miss it. But I do miss Beinlich's.

Sam Smith

Derrick Rose All-Star? Why not? The numbers back it up. bit.ly/1CPcbnj

Lou Amundson has reached agreement with New York on a deal for the rest of the season and will sign today, league source tells RealGM.
