The Bulls should be embarrassed. They are losing 59-48 at halftime. Getting out-rebounded 22-12. They have just 3 fast break points.
Bulls allow 59 first-half points and 58.7% shooting by the Lakers.
Bulls down 13, being beaten up on boards. And now the bad news. Boozer back in game for Lakers
Such a bad effort from the Bulls so far. They look like they are just going through the motions.
Bulls seem lifeless against a bad team. Stop me if you've heard that one before.

Lakers 28-19 after 1....Lakers 56% fg
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.
Bulls down 22-14 246 left 1st
Energy Bulls stayed in San Francisco and went straight to Phoenix. We get Don't Care Bulls tonight I guess.
Lakers 16-8 Bulls 33%
Boozer's revenge! Loose ball and jumper, offensive rebound and putback. 16-8 Lakers. Hey, he's a free agent after this season
The people watching at Lakers games is still top notch -- even if the team stinks.
No one likes Boozer ... anywhere he plays.
Mirotic gets second start start in 16th different Bulls starting lineup as mad scientist Thibs at it again with Mirotic at 3 ; Dunleavy out
No Dunleavy again. Mirotic getting a start and stretching out the floor. Bulls should rack up plenty of points with this lineup tonight.
Got to love that the theme from "Welcome Back Kotter" played as Pau's video rolled on the JumboTron.
Pau Gasol getting a standing ovation from Lakers fans.
Bulls starting Mirotic, Gasol, Noah, Butler and Rose.
Bulls starters http://t.co/HZ04fZ9pGb
Dunleavy out for 15th straight game.
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."
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."
Butler joked that he would still play D in the All-Star Game: "They might not, but I do."
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"
The Pau Gasol shirt that fans are getting tonight. http://t.co/JyE24SvvZC
Jimmy Butler, smiling, when reminded defense isn't played much at All-Star games: "They may not. But I do."
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."
Dunleavy looks frustrated. He's out.
Dunleavy will warm up and then make a decision.
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.....
Lakers planning Gasol tribute tonight, and handing out T-Shirts to honor their former big man.
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.
Happy Birthday @staceyking
Butler in for All-Star. Rose out.
Atlanta Hawks forward Paul Millsap has been selected to the NBA Eastern Conference All-Star reserve team, league source tells RealGM.
Que decir de Felipe Reyes !! Es un ejemplo de superación en el deporte. Enhorabuena capitán
For tonight at L.A. Lakers: Mike Dunleavy (right ankle) is questionable. Jimmy Butler (illness) is probable.
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.
More Gar: ". to detract us from our ultimate goal. The focus of the entire organization from top to bottom is on winning basketball games."
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
Gar Forman: "While as an organization we try to avoid responding to rumors, there is absolutely no basis to this recent speculation." (Cont)
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.
The 6-of-8 losing skid and surrounding speculation was one thing, but JVG comments were like lighting a match around gasoline.
Thibs wanted no part of questions regarding his relationship with front office. Tension between Gar/Pax-Thibs appears higher than ever.
Here at UCLA: This sums up the Bulls' season -- on and off the floor -- pretty well. http://t.co/WnsTH9cqwY
No Swaggy P vs Bulls. Ankle.
Bulls- Lakers The legend lives on Chick Hearn http://t.co/o8MxqvjKNb
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."
Thibodeau on Butler's All-Star chances: "I knew he’d be really good. But I didn’t know he’d be this good."
Thibs not commenting on job status.
Thibodeau wouldn't answer questions about his future or relationship with front office.
Butler is a go. Dunleavy a we'll see.
Thibs thinks Butler will play. Dunleavy is a game time decision
Butler is a go vs. Lakers. Dunleavy gametime.
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.
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.
Tons of Hawks fans here thousands http://t.co/3pSMD4Qoi1
