Thibs asked if Rose can still be elite. One word response - "Yes."
Another beautiful day in the great city of Chicago! http://t.co/8npDuARaqK
Great to see so much "pink" last night(Breast Cancer Awareness Night) at the United Center. Let's remain vigilant 24-7 to assist the cause!
Jimmy Butler said the last 6 minutes or so of the 4th quarter was the best stretch he's ever had in any game.
Noah: "Continuity is important as well. We're not pointing fingers. We just have to find a way to make this work. And I know we will."
Noah: "We just have a lot of work to do. We have to find the right balance. We have guys coming back from injuries. That's a reality."
Giants just win National League pennant on Jimmy Butler three pointer. Huh. Better check that cable signal. I knew Fox1 wasn't real station
I’m good,” Rose said. “I’m not worried about minutes. I’m just trying to be patient and do exactly what (the trainers) tell me to do.”
All the Mirotic hype-sters: Thibs on the not-so-stretchy-4: "He's going to need time to develop.'' See you in December, Nikola.
Obviously, Thibodeau said Rose is scheduled to play in 4th quarter in at least one of these final three preseason games.
Thibs says Rose could have come back but they want to be patient as he makes his way back.
Thibs says Rose told trainer Jeff Tanaka that he was done after 20 minutes. Says he's still not comfortable yet -- but getting there.
Thibodeau said DRose was available to play in 4th tonight but Rose told trainer he was spent after 3rd-quarter stint.
Butler win ! Bulls win ! Bulls win! http://t.co/Wiq7XtXR2v
Jimmy Butler with 3-pt game winner at buzzer for 29 pts; averaging 21 pts in last 4 games and now making strong run for preseason league MVP
Butler's stat line for the night: 29 points, 20 in the fourth, 12-for-16 from the free throw line, 5 rebounds and an assist in 30 minutes.
Noah looked more like his usual self tonight, with 13 rebs & 4 assists in 26 mins.
Butler not only hits game-winning 3-pointer at buzzer but scored 20 points in the 4th.
Jimmy should just look up at Gar and smile. Cha-ching.
Butler wins it with a three. Bulls have shown that their three starters are better than guys that will be in the D-League in two weeks.
Jimmy Butler drills a 3 to win the game at the buzzer. Crowd is going bonkers.
Schroder ... not the building engineer ... just blew past Kirk and Jo for the layup and 84-82 lead with 1.5 seconds left.
Schroder all the way to the rack 1.5 sec left 84-82 ATL Bulls ball
Wonder if Butler's agent has sent any texts to Gar Forman tonight.
How do you know the preseason has gotten too long? Tonight's game.
For the second straight game, Bulls have come back from a 21 point deficit. Tie game with 9 seconds left in regulation.
The Jimmy Butler preseason surge continues. He's got 26 points, hit 3 FTs to tie score with 14.1 secs left.
Game tied with 14 seconds left after three Butler free throws.
82-81..Butler aims to tie it up...he does 82-82 with 14 sec left
Butler fouled behind the arc shooting 3... 82-79 Atl with 14sec left
Shame Ray Allen didn't get a farewell tour last season
Thibs should put Rose back in with 19 seconds left so I can see suits passing out in the front-office suite.
82-79 Atl Bulls ball at halfcourt
19 sec left...Bulls go for a steal..Noah fouls Scott
If the Bulls come back and take the lead .... they're not seriously going to count this as a win, are they?
Bulls down 1 with 23.3 seconds against a bunch of guys you find in that first MyTeam pack on NBA2K15.
The United Center is amped for the ending of this one. It's actually kind of loud in here right now.
Gasol with a slam off a Hawks turnover.....80-79 Atl Hawks ball 23.3 sec left
Pau just got stripped by a waiver-wire guy.
65 sec left Hawks up 3 Butler 23pts
Bulls dominating Dennis Schroder, John Jenkins, Adrien Payne, Mike Muscala and Jarell Eddie to get back in game late
Meanwhile, the six Hawks fans watching this game back in Atlanta are like, "Who are these guys?''
This has suddenly become the most important fifth preseason game of the Thibodeau Era.
1:17 left 4th 80-75 Atl
Butler has been solid...again. 21pts rock on D Atl up 78-75 late 4th
Jimmy Butler continues to be the Bulls' best all-around player this preseason. 19 points tonight.
With old NBA saying about the last two minutes is most worth watching, TV ratings look like they'll go to zero with 44-minute game
2:56 left Bulls have the big MO...78-71 Atl
Butler stepping up big time for the Bulls in the 4th. 352 left Atlanta up 76-69
Bulls hit 44 minutes trailing Hawks 76-67. LeBron and Dirk say teams have played long enough and players now deserve naps.
Noah feeds Butler reverse count it and a foul.....Bulls chipping away trailing 75-67 Butler with 13
Bulls cut it to 8 points with 4:20 against Atlanta's Bum Unit.
Butler with a nifty up and under spin left block Bulls down 75-65
Thibs coming back with Noah, Gasol & Butler trailing by 12 with 6 mins left. No Rose, though...yet.
So Noah, Gasol and Butler are coming back into this one to close it out. But no Rose.
Noah, Butler and Gasol all coming back in.
Noah is at scorer's table for first 4th-quarter action of preseason.
Mirotic has shown one thing - he's the best garbage time player on the roster so far this preseason.
Taj 's tenacity on the glass puts him at the line shooting two with the Bulls trailing 73-58
The under 9 time out in the 2nd and 4th quarters is the one NBA should get rid of to speed up game. Too much $$$ involved though.
Mirotic hits a 3. Bulls now 2-for-15 from beyond the arc. They've also turned the ball over 17 times.
Mirotic hits a three ... is he becoming a bit more stretchy?
Bulls down 66-47 after three in a preseason game that has set basketball back a few years.
How would you describe this Bulls' performance? ________
After 3---Hawks 66-47.
Hawks 64-47 2:32 left 3rd
Bulls down 17 420 left 3rd
Rose and Noah out. That's 20:59 of PT for both. Typically, that's it unless they get fourth segment in 4th.
This one reminds me of the time I went to a high school game and one of the coaches screamed out, "Why do we practice!!!"
Bulls starters back in and Hawks go ahead by 19; starters don't want reserves feeling badly.
These are the kind of games you see from teams during the season when they are getting beat on both ends during an off night. Not preseason
Bulls having a tough start here in the 3rd...trailing 56-37.
Hawks could be an underrated threat in East. They're a playoff team bringing back Horford. Teague & Millsap not even playing tonight.
Bulls were sluggish to start game with two days off. League now considering 120-game schedule as fans cheated w/lax play after many days off
So What do you think peeps? Bulls win by how much in second half?
Positive: Bulls shooting more threes, 10 in half. Negative: Missing more threes, nine in half. Rose has made only Bulls three
Hawks with 42-32 halftime lead. Rose's 10 points cuts 17-point deficit. Hawks say Rose has a lot of Bulls in him.
42-32 halftime lead for the Hawks. Rose leads the Bulls with 10, but they are collectively shooting 1 for 10 from the 3-point line.
Halftime Atlanta 42-32 Bulls 35% 1-10 3s 5-8 fts. Rose-10pts Noah 5pts 6 reb
