KC Johnson

Gibson checking in so ankle is a go.

Joe Cowley

Rose can get the triple-double with those 9 turnovers and five rebounds.

Joe Cowley

Pau falls down a lot lately.

Joe Cowley

Give Rose the assist! So he can have one this game!

Nick Friedell

These two teams are playing like 10 dudes running full court in a college open gym right now. Very little D, just racing up and down floor.

Joe Cowley

Gasol just went all Whiteside!

Nick Friedell

Taj Gibson appears to be fine. Joking around with players while trying to get warmed up.

Chuck Swirsky

GST 56-51 Bulls 38% Rose with 12 (5-14) Gasol flirting with triple dbl 6-8-5. Taj 8-8 Thompson with 20

Joe Cowley

Well, that was fun. Forget sleeping @PatrickMannelly ! Bean up with a double espresso and enjoy!

Joe Cowley

Several curtains were hurt in the making of Dunleavy's jacket.

Joe Cowley

Taj walking it off. Looks like he might be OK.

Mike McGraw

Just as I say that, Taj limps off with an apparent right knee injury. Maybe Niko, Jo & Gasol will work. #Bulls

KC Johnson

Gibson trying to walk off his ankle tweak but coming out of game.

Joe Cowley

Taj in pain ... looks like the right ankle.

Chuck Swirsky

Gibson heads to the bench...looks a bit gimpy

Joe Cowley

Should have played this game at Rucker Park.

Nick Friedell

Looks like Taj may have rolled his ankle again. Being checked out by Jeff Tanaka.

Mike McGraw

Looks like the #Bulls might be onto something with the Niko, Gasol, Taj front line.

Joe Cowley

Gibson swallows planets, moons, ships, anything that comes his way lately .. #blackhole

Joe Cowley

Rose did say today that he's not getting calls.

Joe Cowley

Welcome back, Niko. It's been awhile.

Joe Cowley

Thompson now guarding the Rose.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls fans..I love ya....what's up? Bulls without Dunleavy- Butler hanging in.

Nick Friedell

A ton of Bulls fans in here tonight. The organization's international following is always impressive to see.

Nick Friedell

Credit to Bulls for hanging tough so far. They are not getting flustered, just keep playing. Derrick Rose has 12 points.

Chuck Swirsky

Threeeeekola from downtown....GST up 49-47 412 left 2nd Q

Joe Cowley

Bulls took the punch and are now counter-punching. It's like every Rocky movie ... ever!

Joe Cowley

Curry sagging at the three, daring the No. 1 to shoot it. Good discipline by Rose to still attack.

KC Johnson

Shooters everywhere cheering for a Warriors-Hawks Finals.

Joe Cowley

Think about it ... even Golden State's coach can hit threes ... weapons everywhere and lethal from anywhere.

Chuck Swirsky

Warriors 49-39 GST 8 of 15-3s

Nick Friedell

The Warriors are fun to watch, man.

Joe Cowley

This is just a pick-up game right now ... and Steve Kerr had the first two picks.

Joe Cowley

Taj Gibson was moving the ball out of the post the first month of the season. That has obviously stopped.

Chuck Swirsky

A rarity.....Coach Griff with a tech.....wow

Joe Cowley

Was the T on Adrian Griffin ... who knew he even spoke?

Nick Friedell

The box score read that Adrian Griffin picked up that T. Hard to believe given how soft spoken Griff usually is.

KC Johnson

Noah has said this is best he has felt all season-as he did this morning-before but way he is moving defensively is backing it up some.

Joe Cowley

Thompson is a ball hog.

Mike McGraw

Pretty good feat for #Bulls. They're shooting .385, GSW at .609, but Bulls trail just 35-29 after 1stQ in Oakland.

Joe Cowley

Could have been a lot worse than down just 6.

Sam Smith

Curry and Thompson 10-14 in 1st and 5-7 on threes for 25 pts in 35-29 W's lead. Probably need to get those guys on scouting report next time

Nick Friedell

The Bulls better mix in a little D now -- or else this one is going to get ugly in the 2nd half. Warriors getting whatever they want now.

Chuck Swirsky

Golden State 35-29 ends of 1...Thompson and Curry= 25 Rose-10points

Nick Friedell

Warriors PR says Andrew Bogut has the flu and will not play.

KC Johnson

Bogut out for Warriors with flu.

KC Johnson

Thibodeau follows through on pregame hint he may try Mirotic at small forward again. He's gone back and forth on that all season.

Joe Cowley

They just showed the replay of the Curry three. Rose made no attempt to even try and get through the screen. Business decision.

Chuck Swirsky

GST 23-20 Fast break 13-0 Warriors Thompson-15 Rose-10 ...Gasol 6 reb

Sam Smith

Amazing crowd in Oakland; audible reaction to every play. Nothing like it anywhere in NBA.

Sam Smith

Bulls would be in good shape if Warriors just, you know, didn't hit every shot they attempted. Actually just 7-8 as Bulls lock down: 19-12

Mike McGraw

Defense does not appear to be part of #Bulls' game plan tonight. GSW hits 7 of 1st 8 shots, leads 19-12 in just over 34 mins of actions.

Joe Cowley

What should really be said in Bulls huddle right now: youtube.com/watch?v=8gciFo…

Chuck Swirsky

Klay Thompson with 13 5-5 fgs 3-3 from 3pt range Rose with 8 GST 19-12

Nick Friedell

Klay Thompson has 13 points in just over 4 minutes. That's a lot -- but given what he did Friday night it's become the norm for him.

Joe Cowley

Sometimes you're just not good enough.

KC Johnson

Fairly breathtaking how quickly the Warriors can score.

Sam Smith

Bulls don't start slowly this time. 10 pts in first 3:10; Rose pair of threes; Warriors, though with 14

Nick Friedell

No better atmosphere than Oracle. Best in the league. Rose loves it.

Mike McGraw

Klay Thompson drains 3-ptrs on GSW's first two possessions. Have a feeling #Bulls will miss Jimmy Butler (sick) tonight.

Joe Cowley

37-point quarter could be challenged.

Sam Smith

Appears Bulls never got a chance to watch Thompson 37-point quarter; Opens game with pair of threes. OK, who's got that guy?

Joe Cowley

It would be nice to see the No. 1 do something special tonight, especially on this stage.

Mike McGraw

Thought this was surprising -- Golden State's third-leading scorer is Marreese Speights, who is starting for Bogut tonight. #Bulls

Nick Friedell

Hinrich on Thompson to start. Snell on Barnes.

KC Johnson

Derrick Rose ran over to hug Warriors assistant and former Bulls assistant Ron Adams just before tip.

Mike McGraw

Remember last time #Bulls played Golden State, they tried to control Curry and Draymond Green ended up scoring 31 pts.

Joe Cowley

Bulls starters: Snell, Gasol, Noah, Hinrich and Rose.

Chuck Swirsky

Warriors' fans...if you're at the Oracle tonight--stop by and say hello--upstairs in section 114. Go Bulls!

Joe Cowley

Thibs needs to be the drill sergeant in Full Metal Jacket II. "Many of you will not like me because I am hard ...''

Joe Cowley

Thibs basically questioned the toughness of all sports these days, from the NFL and its restrictions to baseball and pitch-counts. Love it!

Sam Smith

Thibs pregame said Butler is out ill; Mirotic will again play some small forward, McDermott may play some, next man up, yadda

Chuck Swirsky

Tons of Bulls fans here in Oakland....tremendous following and a great brand throughout the world. Go Bulls !

KC Johnson

Thibodeau had fodder for minutes police pregame, talked about Duncan averaging 40 minutes early in career and Phil Jackson playing MJ always

KC Johnson

Thibodeau said he may look at Mirotic at small forward again.

Chuck Swirsky

Jimmy Butler is a no go .

KC Johnson

Thibodeau said "gotta start somewhere" when asked if McDermott is ready. But then sounded non-committal afterward. So stay tuned.

Nick Friedell

Thibs says Butler is out tonight because of an illness.

Joe Cowley

Dunleavy still out, while Butler is out.

KC Johnson

Butler is out vs. Warriors.

KC Johnson

With Curry, Thompson in now, Steve Kerr reminiscing about winning All-Star 3-point contest in 97. Said MJ had champagne waiting in hotel.

Chuck Swirsky

Like Manute Bol is really tall http://t.co/M4o4rdfLbT

Chuck Swirsky

Salami and Cheese Its over

Chuck Swirsky

Not really in to the dunk contest after Dr J , MJ , Nique and Air Canada. But I am intrigued with LaVine. This kid can fly and dunk

Chuck Swirsky

Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Timberwolves’ Zach LaVine, the Magic’s Victor Oladipo and the Nets’ Mason Plumlee. Slam Dunk Contest

Joe Cowley

Kobe is all set for season-ending shoulder surgery. A specialist will also be brought in to try and remove his overinflated ego.

Shams Charania

RealGM Sources: K.J. McDaniels in serious consideration for NBA Rising Stars, despite uncertainty under new format. tinyurl.com/m4kyk9q

Joe Cowley

Would love to see a Rose-Curry mix tape tonight. Old school Nique-Bird showdown.

Joe Cowley

Rose said there's a lot of his game that he hasn't touched yet. Well, there's just under $19 million reasons this year to start touching it.

Joe Cowley

The last time Rose faced Curry he scored 9 points. It's big boy time.

Joe Cowley

This is the trip for Rose to play like a $20-million a year player - but can he even do that? He says yes - Read it - chicago.suntimes.com/basketball/7/7…

Nick Friedell

Great tour at SF Google today with my man @therealwalkdog. Individually wrapped Sour Patch Kids in lobby. Awesome. http://t.co/rmucEgNIgZ
