Hinrich for 3---Bulls 55-48 time out Grzz 642 left 3rd
James Johnson is battling a sore ankle and hasn't played yet. Looked good in previous meeting in Memphis in December.
Conley, another 1 of the league's nice guys, much more aggressive in the 3rd.
Jo with words for TA on bench after that last J. Tony can only laugh.
Love all the in game tweets---awesome and if you're here at the UC..appreciate the focus!
Whether you re listening on Bulls Radio Network. ESPN 1000 or Sirius XM thank you. You are appreciated !
D.J. Augustin gave the Bulls a big jolt. He's got 12 of their 39 points. All in the 2nd quarter. Bulls up 4 at the half.
Bulls 39-35 at the break...DJ and Noah=23pts
Taj and DJ have 20 combined, Bulls starters have 19 after that Jo layup.
Noah 9 pts 4reb...Bulls 35-29 1: 24 left 1st half
Bulls 30-29 Two teams 14 turnovers 244 left 2nd Q
Thibs draws league leading 10th technical among coaches; Rasheed Wallace now has pictures of Thibs on his walls.
Bulls 30-29 244 2nd Q
Thibs T'd up.
DJ has it going in the 2nd. 12 in the quarter, changed complexion of low-scoring game.
With the Bulls the first to reach 30 with 3 minutes left in first half, United Center releases balloons and confetti
We're finally in the 30s here at the ol' UC. With 3:35 until halftime. Bulls 30, Grizz 29.
27-24 Memphis 557 left 2nd Q DJ 60 of last 61 fts wowza
DJ the hoop and harm....Bulls down 23-18 825 left 2nd
Tony's teammates might give him a hard time when that missed layup comes up in film session from the looks of the bench.
Tony Allen just went to greet former fellow Celt Thibs as he checked into game. Thibs fell backward and asked for a charge
Bulls down 15-12 21% Grzz - 33% end of 1
27 combined points after 1 quarter. Exactly what everybody expected -- an ugly, ugly game.
Memphis 13 Bulls 12 - Bulls 23% 0-6 3s
Gasol and Boozer each with 2 fouls
Now they exchange buckets.
2nd on Carlos, Gasol rigth back with an offensive foul.
Bulls 8 Grzz 4- Bulls 28%fg 1-9 outside the paint Memphis 2-10 fgs
If Boozer ends up on Gasol most of the night the Bulls are in trouble. Expect to see Gibson even more tonight.
...are more like Detroit/New York or Brooklyn, and put an emphasis on forcing Jo right off the dribble/limiting his playmaking.
Bulls with 8-4 start first six minutes over similarly defensive Grizzlies. Teams shooting 50%: Bulls 28, Grizzlies 22
2 things I'm watching for tonight: Jimmy's FTA's (12-14 from the line vs. that physical Memphis D in December) and whether the Grizzlies...
Here's a first---thanking TV for the start time.
That would mean paying him close to $30 million in 2018-19 when he's 34.
One significant question re: Carmelo's future is will the Knicks even offer him a five-year max deal?
During 10-2 stretch, Bulls have had 8 different players score at least 19 points. Taj has done it 5 times; Noah & Augustin 4 each.
Zach Randolph, who missed last game with flu, is in vs. Bulls.
Walls have appeared on the Bulls new practice facility. http://t.co/ffdggPskLF
The Bulls will honor the late David Reinsdorf by wearing a patch on their jerseys with his initials (DJR) for the remainder of reg season
The NBA announced time change for Bulls at NY April 13 is now scheduled for a 630CT tip
Noah didn't want to address the 'gossip', as he called it, going around. Very careful not to say Carmelo's name during media session.
"Gossip" is how Jo describes Melo recruiting rumors.
Noah very upbeat about thumb. Wouldn't address Carmelo story. Said whether happened or not doesn't matter for this team.
Noah says his thumb is fine. He has it wrapped. Says he'll be able to play through it.
Noah says he doesn't want to address Carmelo rumors. Asked if it was accurate he said, "it doesn't matter." Never said No.
Thibodeau on Noah's sprained thumb: "From a medical standpoint, the ligament is fine."
Thibs: Jo will play through sprained thumb tonight, participated in shootaround.
Thibodeau says Noah will play.
Thibs says Noah will play tonight. Just a sprained thumb.
Never a big believer in the cliche it's "his/her team" Bulls based on sharing the ball, unity, toughness and heart. Noah would agree.
Noah s popularity is soaring and for good reason http://t.co/kaTVHJIN8j
Game night from the UC. 6pm tip. 530CT pre Bulls Radio Net. ESPN 1000 vs Grzz. High of 43 in Chicago Mich Ave 8am http://t.co/SETcbaNRpa
Can't watch the Lakers. This is really bad. Good night Twitter world .
Wow. Spurs by 15
Initial tests on Noah's thumb showed a sprain, according to a league source. Should get another update tomorrow from Thibs.
James Johnson in town Friday w/ Grizz. Athleticism always evident. By all accounts, he's taking game, commitment to fitness more seriously.
Bulls are off today but early indications are Noah's right thumb injury isn't serious.
Never met Devin Hester. Don't know the man but as a Bears fan thank you for your tremendous accomplishments.
D-League Canton forward Kevin Jones departs today to sign with San Miguel Beermen in Philippines for rest of season, source tells RealGM.
Taking nothing away from other stars in Chicago but is there a more popular athlete on/off the court for ability, style, swag and than Noah?
Went to the dry cleaners the attendant behind the counter says," Hey, that Joakim Noah is pretty good, right?" Uh, yea....
If you're looking for a ray of light to jump start your life the fire must burn from within first. Attitude and enthusiasm is a great start.
It feels great to be back in Chicago for 12 days....now ,let' s see, what comes first?..Laundry, dry cleaning, grocery shopping..decisions!
Make that 830CT SiriusXM with King and Isola talking NBA
My professional broadcast life is now complete.I've accepted an invitation to appear on SiriusXM NBA Channel at 815AMCT with King and Isola
Wheels down Chicago !
Butler on Noah: "He means the most to this team. The guy, he's our leader, he does so many things well offensively and defensively."
Wheels up headed to Sweet Home Chicago. 6 straight home games. Yes!!!
Bulls shot season-high 53.8 percent.
Noah was playful about this thumb situation. Called it "just a little boo-boo."
Noah tore ulna collateral ligament in that right thumb in 2010 and missed 30 games following surgery. Showed no signs of pain during game.
Noah said the thumb would get checked out again tomorrow. It's the same thumb he tore ligaments in during 2010-2011 season.
Bulls fans as always appreciate you listening. Hope you enjoyed the broadcast
Noah wore a protective brace around his right thumb after the game. Said it got dinged tonight. Didn't want to go into much detail.
Noah had his right thumb in a splint postgame. Didn't want to talk about it much. Said he didn't think it would cost him time.
Interesting stat courtesy of ESPN: Noah has more triple doubles than LeBron and Durant combined. LeBron now chanting "MVP, MVP" for Noah?
Great team win for the Bulls. Now back to Chicago for 6 straight home games. A reminder. Friday. 6pm tip
Great win for Bulls 105-94 Noah triple dbl wow 18-2 34-4th Q points Butler dbl-dbl 18-12
This Bulls' homestand should be interesting -- Memphis, Miami, Spurs, Rockets and OKC (plus Sacramento).
With Bulls coming off a bad performance in Brooklyn, felt like Pistons never had a chance tonight.
Mo Cheeks calls in to say, "See, it wasn't my fault." Pistons with 42 percent winning percentage when Cheek fired; 27.2 percent since.
Joakim Noah with another triple double as he drives and passes to Gibson for jumper. LeBron says the great ones don't pass off, they attack
Triple dbl leaders Lance Stephenson-4 Noah and Steph Curry-3 each
How good is Noah wow
Joakim Noah racks up his second triple double in three games. 10 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.
