Nick Friedell

Joakim Noah has been elevated to questionable for tonight's game vs. Mavs. Mike Dunleavy is questionable as well.

Joe Cowley

Dunleavy and Noah both questionable for tonight. I'm probable. @Nick Friedell is a go and @KC Johnson is out - VGD (very good decision)

KC Johnson

Bulls upgrade Noah from doubtful to questionable for Mavericks. Dunleavy also questionable. Trib's @TeddyGreenstein has coverage from Dallas

Chuck Swirsky

For tonight at Dallas: Joakim Noah (right ankle) is questionable. Mike Dunleavy (right ankle) is questionable.

Mike McGraw

#Bulls are calling both Joakim Noah and Mike Dunleavy questionable for tonight at Dallas. McDermott, no restrictions.

Pau Gasol

Gran victoria esta noche contra San Antonio! Nuestra intensidad en defensa fue la clave. A seguir así. #Equipo #Juntos #SeeRed

Pau Gasol

Great win against San Antonio tonight! Our defensive intensity was outstanding. Let's build on it. #Together #TeamWork #SeeRed

Pau Gasol

Noche inolvidable familia!! Muchas gracias por habernos ayudado a recibir este gran honor, aún no me lo creo! #Allstar2015 #Agradecido

Pau Gasol

Unforgettable night family!! Thanks for making this incredible honor for @Marc Gasol & myself a reality. #AllStar2015 #Honored #Thankful

KC Johnson

Tuesday, the Bulls talked. Wednesday, they practiced fully. Thursday, they played--well. Coincidence? Players say no. trib.in/1Eznkrt

Chuck Swirsky

Wheels up headed to the Big D / Dallas, Texas. Go Bulls!

Sam Smith

Pau going adjective on All-Star selection: "Incredibly special, overwhelming, huge honor, memorable, historic, thrilled, happy and thankful"

Sam Smith

Rose: "Way we’ve been playing doesn’t have anything to do with Thibs. He’s preparing us, did everything possible. It's up to the players."

Jimmy Butler

Even though my swag is on 100.. Congrats to my brother @Pau Gasol on being an all star starter.. Well… instagram.com/p/yLygfEh7gD/

Sam Smith

Rose on Tuesday team meet: "I said what I had to say, our first time ever doing that; guys took it to heart; it showed tonight."

Sam Smith

More Rose: "Basketball, any sport, it’s about competing. I think we lost that edge on the competing side where we were just playing the game

Sam Smith

Rose: "We wanted to come out and see if we could have that edge. We really got on each other about coming out right in the 2nd half.'

Sam Smith

Rose on slump breaker: "it’s not like we lost 5 games in a row, 7; just something we’re not used to, which is losing games period."

Sam Smith

Rose on asking out after 47 secs in 4th: "We were up 20, so what is the point? I wanted to give the other guys a chance. I feel fine.”

Sam Smith

Pop on his starters: "They had an entitled attitude. Like everything will be fine. As a group they were mentally and physically humiliated."

Aaron Brooks

Congrats Pau on making your 5th All Star game and first Start.... instagram.com/p/yLxZfdSpLQ/

Sam Smith

Pop tarts: "Their physicality was great, a sense of purpose; they were great. We played embarrassing basketball; I’d want my money back."

Sam Smith

More Pop: "I thought our play was humiliating and embarrassing. But because of the Bulls tenacity and their sense of purpose.”

Sam Smith

Pop: "Baloney. Nothing could be further from the truth and whoever asked that can figure that out instead of making stuff up like that."

Sam Smith

Classic Pop on Thibs: "Whoever asked me that question not listening to Thibs, Thibs has lost them, that kind of bs, you got your answer."

Chuck Swirsky

Great bounce back win for the Bulls. Up next at Dallas 630CT pre Friday on Bulls Radio Network ESPN 1000.

Nick Friedell

Pau on being All Star with Marc "Unforgettable, memorable, historical, you name it. You can use as many words and adjectives as you want."

Nick Friedell

Rose on Thibs: "He's preparing us right. He's doing everything and did everything possible to prepare us as a coach."

Nick Friedell

Rose backing Thibs: "The way that we've been playing don't have anything to do with Thibs."

KC Johnson

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich: "Our play was terrible. I'd ask for my money back."

Nick Friedell

Rose gave defense of Thibs. Says he's doing all the right things. Players just have follow the plan he puts together.

Nick Friedell

Rose says he was just stiff at the end of the game. He says he'll play tomorrow.

KC Johnson

Rose supporting Thibodeau: "The way we've been playing has nothing to do with Thibs. It's on us to play better."

KC Johnson

Thibodeau said Rose said he was a little stiff and that's why he only played 45 seconds in the 4th quarter.

Nick Friedell

Given circumstances, I can't recall many more important regular season wins in the Thibs era. This one was big for Bulls' collective psyche

Nick Friedell

Popovich gives Thibs and Gasol a hug before heading off the floor.

KC Johnson

Pop with postgame hugs for Thibodeau and Gasol. Thought yesterday was National Hug Day.

Nick Friedell

And a Mirotic dunk to earn a Big Mac. Everyone is going home happy tonight. Even Thibs.

Nick Friedell

A Doug McDermott sighting. Omaha rejoices.

Mike McGraw

Doug McDermott is back to play the final 2:13. Hasn't played since November. #Bulls

KC Johnson

Beyond the victory, the Bulls' energy level resembled what followers are used to seeing.

Nick Friedell

The Bulls needed this kind of win in the worst possible way.

Sam Smith

Bulls lead falls to 19; Aaron Rodgers says doesn't pay to relax

Sam Smith

Rose plays 47 secs in 4th; leaves. nothing wrong; on bench. Popovich not putting starters back w/Bulls up 22. TNT opts out of NBA contract

KC Johnson

All 5 starters now in double figures, plus Aaron Brooks.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls. 77/60 after 3. Gasol 16 reb

Nick Friedell

As far as subtle differences go -- Thibs hasn't flipped out as outwardly when Bulls have made a mistake tonight. Much calmer, for him.

Sam Smith

Bulls getting a standing ovation with 3:59 left in 3rd and leading 73-48. First standing O since last standing boo

Mike McGraw

Nazr is coming back in. Maybe that was the gist of the team meeting, getting him on the floor more than once a month. #Bulls

KC Johnson

Bulls getting standing O. Last home game, they got booed.

KC Johnson

Nazr Mohammed coming back in. Sure, the ol' Tony Snell and Nazr Mohammed game.

Nick Friedell

Mentally, the Bulls look like a totally different team tonight. A more cohesive one.

Chuck Swirsky

Snell has been rock solid tonight Bulls up 21

KC Johnson

Rebounding is Bulls 29-22. Second-chance points is 14-5. And Spurs are shooting 35.5%. These are the Bulls people are used to seeing.

Sam Smith

Pau is dominating the boards and fabulous boxing out Spurs big men; probably should be an All-Star. What? Oh.

Nick Friedell

After a rough start, Tony Snell has bounced back and played well. He's got 9 points and slowly appears to be gaining a little confidence.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls begin 3rd quarter with a 7-0 run....(10-0 run overall) Bulls 53-40

Mike McGraw

The #Bulls' halftime team meeting must have gone well, also. They open 3rdQ with a 7-0 run to boost lead to 13 pts.

Sam Smith

Bulls open 2nd half 7-0 for 53-40 lead; Popovich declares them better than '96 Bulls

Mike McGraw

It is odd that on the same day Tyrus Thomas returns to the NBA with Memphis, LaMarcus Aldridge goes down with an injury. #Bulls

Mike McGraw

I heard #Bulls were feeling good about Tuesday's team meeting & were anxious to see if it carried over to court. They lead SA 46-40 at half.

KC Johnson

Will be intriguing to monitor if Snell stays in rotation when Dunleavy returns. That Snell is ahead of McDermott is surprising enough.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 46-40 half Rose -15 Leonard-16

Nick Friedell

Good first half for the Bulls: 15 points for Rose, but Bulls gave a solid, consistent effort. Thibs has to be pleased. Truly.

Mike McGraw

Snell scores over Duncan, just the way Gar imagined it happening. #Bulls

Mike McGraw

Three members of the NBA's All-Inland Empire team are in the building -- Tony Snell, Kawhi Leonard and Reggie Miller. #Bulls

Mike McGraw

Anyone know if they sell Ricky Sobers throwback jerseys at the Bull Market? #Bulls

Sam Smith

Bulls 39-33 with 3 min left. Cmmr calls in threatens fine for Bulls defending too much on champs while on national TNT. Not fan-tastic

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 39-33 256 left 2nd Q

Sam Smith

Think Rose isn't of concern. Spurs have best defender Leonard guarding him and trapping him with double off p/r w/big and Rose still had 13

Mike McGraw

Taj was screaming for Brooks to move to the other side of the court before that TO. #Bulls

Mike McGraw

Thibs has decided to go heavy Rose-Brooks in 1stH. With Brooks guarding Parker, Rose has piled up 13 pts. #Bulls lead 37-27 mid 2ndQ.

Nick Friedell

You know who has looked locked in from the start tonight? Derrick Rose. He's set the tone that the rest of his teammates are following.

Joe Cowley

Off tonight. Waiting at IHOP for post-game meal and hugs. Please send all concerns and comments to @Nick Friedell.

Chuck Swirsky

37-27 Bulls Rose 3 ball left wing

Nick Friedell

Can't remember many games, if any, when Jimmy Butler has been in foul trouble. He just picked up his 3rd foul in 9 minutes.

Sam Smith

Popovich w/quick timeout after Bulls FB for 32-36 lead. Pop shrapnel in first 6 rows from head exploding

Chuck Swirsky

Transition ball... Bulls 32-26 718 left 2nd Q

Sam Smith

Nazr's Bulls push out to 30-24 lead since the veteran center entered; Brilliant Thibs waiting to unleash secret weapon. Nazr 3 reb in 6 min

Chuck Swirsky

Rose with a change of hands scoop right block...30-24 Bulls 2nd Q Rose-8 Butler-7

Nick Friedell

Seems like Nazr's message to Thibs in Tuesday's meeting was pretty simple: "I want to play."

Sam Smith

Bulls trail streaking Spurs 22-21 after one. Bulls considered now to be playing too much defense.

Chuck Swirsky

Spurs 22-21 Rose-Gasol each with 6 Mills -6

Sam Smith

Nazr Mohammed makes rare first quarter appearance; Thibs determined to show he can go older than Spurs
