Joe Cowley

Mess with "Boogie'' at your own risk.

Joe Cowley

Mike Dunleavy deserves a raise.

Joe Cowley

Aaron Brooks could be on heavy minutes alert tonight in Portland, with Rose and Hinrich both game-time decisions.

Joe Cowley

Observations from slap-down in Sac-Town: Butler's continual growth as a leader, on and off the court. Jimmy's getting paid this summer!!!

Sam Smith

Bulls lose first road game of season, 103-88 to Kings; Sacramento Boogies. blogs.bulls.com/2014/11/bulls-…

Chuck Swirsky

Wheels down Portland !!!

Nick Friedell

It's not Steak and Shake -- but it is a nice west coast substitution. http://t.co/e4hvA2HHfi

Nick Friedell

High praise for Cousins from Jo. RT @ESPNChiBulls: Keeping his cool tough for Noah vs. Kings es.pn/1v0U7mD

Chuck Swirsky

Wheels up headed to Portland. Go Bulls!

Sam Smith

Butler with team high 23 points and 8 rebounds in 103-88 loss to Kings: "We did a lot of things right, but have to guard." Kings shot 51.4%

Sam Smith

Did Noah think of his epic meltdown in Sacramento last season when he started jumping around Thursday and was T'd up? “Yeah, (I) did.”

Sam Smith

Thibs on Hinrich: "Took a shot to the chest; 2 plays, one was the charge and a play prior to that." X-rays negative; contusion.

Sam Smith

Dunleavy on 3rd straight loss in Sac: "Some teams you play well; some you don’t. They play us well. We’ve had our hands full with them."

Sam Smith

Noah after 103-88 loss: "Two years in a row (being ejected) would not have been good; In these frustrating situations got to keep my cool"

Sam Smith

Noah with T and Cousins 22 & 14: "Sometimes he gets frustrated and that works in our favor. This year he’s the one getting guys frustrated.

Nick Friedell

I can't imagine what will be going through his head tomorrow. Noah didn't even want to hear about the anniversary after tonight's game.

Nick Friedell

Crazy to think Bulls are now headed to Portland and it's almost a year to the day when Rose injured his right knee in the same building.

Nick Friedell

Noah admitted he thought about last year's outburst in Sacramento after getting 1st T tonight. Reminded himself he had to breathe, calm down

KC Johnson

Bulls lose a game, their cool and possibly Hinrich in Sacramento. chicagotribune.com/sports/basketb…

Chuck Swirsky

Thanks for staying up with us Bulls fans. On the air at 9 pm CT from Portland. Bulls Radio Network. ESPN 1000.

KC Johnson

Noah: "I have to calm down a bit in those frustrating situations. I’m an emotional player but I want to win so I have to be smarter."

Joe Cowley

Noah when it was pointed out that his emotions were better than last year here: "Yeah, [bleep], two years-in-a-row wouldn't have been good."

Joe Cowley

Noah's T wasn't the outburst it was last season in Sac, but he admitted, "I'm an emotional player, but I want to win the game ... ''

Joe Cowley

Noah: "Just disappointed we lost tonight ... couple more defensive rebounds, couple box outs. basketball is crazy. It's so mental.''

Joe Cowley

No timetable on a Hinrich return. Will be re-evaluated in Portland. Could be down to one true point guard in Aaron Brooks against Portland.

Sam Smith

Hinrich X-rays negative for chest contusion. No word on if he will play Friday

Joe Cowley

Hinrich chest contusion. X-rays negative.

Nick Friedell

Bulls PR says x-rays were negative on Hinrich's chest. He has a chest contusion.

KC Johnson

Hinrich X-rays were negative. Bulls say he has a chest contusion.

KC Johnson

Noah on if last year's outburst entered his mind after T: "Yeah, two years in a row would've been bad."

KC Johnson

Thibodeau said Hinrich had his chest X-rayed.

Joe Cowley

Hinrich getting X-Rays on his chest.

Nick Friedell

Thibs says Hinrich is getting x-rays on his chest right now.

KC Johnson

Bulls missed their last 10 3-point attempts after starting 5-for-9.

Chuck Swirsky

Kings 103-88. Final. Butler 23. Noah 10points 11 reb Cousins 22-14 Gay 20

Joe Cowley

Not a good night in Sac-town. Pack up the bags, board the charter and off to Portland. Bulls now 8-4 after first road loss of the season.

Joe Cowley

Tag the toe....zip the bag up.

Mike McGraw

#Bulls' biggest problem might be that they haven't made a 3-point basket since the first quarter.

Chuck Swirsky

Cousins 18-12. Collision 17-11assts. Gay 20. Butler 23. Noah 10-10.

Mike McGraw

Kings lead the league in free throw attempts at 34.5 per game. Tonight, they lead the #Bulls 27-16 in FTAs.

Chuck Swirsky

Time running out. Sac 97-84 329 left 4th

Nick Friedell

This is the most frustrated I've seen the Bulls' players and coaches in some time. Not happy with the way this game is being called.

Joe Cowley

Hinrich is getting put back together with gum and tape in the locker room. He obviously doesn't feel like his kids will ever graduate.

KC Johnson

Hinrich not on bench.

Nick Friedell

Hinrich was being looked at by trainers after leaving the game and appears to have left the bench.

Sam Smith

Brooks finishing game for Hinrich, who has left bench

Joe Cowley

C-Webb firing T-shirts into the stands.

Nick Friedell

They've got Chris Webber out here firing a t-shirt cannon.

Sam Smith

Trainers attending to Hinrich on bench. Asks to go back in as he notices no bones are sticking out

Joe Cowley

Not a good night for the whistles.

Sam Smith

Hinrich taking beating; draws offensive foul on rumbling Cousins; had finger jammed before that; sucking chest wound seems to be abating

Nick Friedell

Nice help D from Hinrich. Takes a charge with Cousins barreling down on him. He stood in there and took the hit.

Joe Cowley

That 5 am flight to Portland was suddenly a bad idea.

Nick Friedell

Noah looks like a guy who wants to get tossed tonight. His frustration is boiling over.

Sam Smith

Marv Albert with his famous call told he'll be doing Kings in Sacramento vs Bulls without Rose and Gasol: "No!"

Nick Friedell

Mirotic's defense is so much better than what most initially expected. Very physical down low when he wants to be.

Chuck Swirsky

Having said that Cousins is an All Star

Joe Cowley

Next to get a T? The Swirsk! RT @Chuck Swirsky: Cousins should pay rent. He s been camped in the lane all night. Bulls down 80-68 after 3

Nick Friedell

The Bulls' offense disappeared after 1st quarter. 39 points in 2nd and 3rd quarters combined. Need more against West teams, especially Sac.

Chuck Swirsky

Cousins should pay rent. He s been camped in the lane all night. Bulls down 80-68 after 3

Sam Smith

No golden experiences thus far in gold rush neighborhood Sacramento for Bulls, who head into fourth trailing 80-68.

Joe Cowley

Gasol could, but might wait until Utah with two days off after the back-to-back.

Joe Cowley

Does DRose play in Portland tomorrow night? Guessing not. D. Lillard waiting, and some bad memories.

Joe Cowley

Game is turning into "The Longest Yard.''

Joe Cowley

Good thing this game doesn't count. #DRoseapologists

Joe Cowley

Jo and Sacramento haven't been a good mix - youtube.com/watch?v=jJeUjc…

Nick Friedell

Game is slipping away from Bulls here. They are losing control of their emotions and crowd is into it. Big stretch coming up. Kings up 11.

Sam Smith

Jo loses it in Sacramento again, drawing T after 5th foul during rebound. Noah does a leap of disgust, which seems not to please officials

Chuck Swirsky

Continuation....really?

Joe Cowley

Called it 39 minutes ago. T City.

Nick Friedell

Noah gets a T. Thibs instantly pulls him from game. Remember, this was place last year where he had the most epic meltdown of his career.

Chuck Swirsky

Butler banged up stays in the game Kings 63/55

Sam Smith

Rudy Gay gets going again, so Cousins pulls up for an early in the clock 20 footer he bricks. Going to be tough for Bulls to get that pick.

Joe Cowley

Glad Butler isn't represented by B.J. - would be out until Feb with that shoulder.

Joe Cowley

Butler - foxhole guy. You'sa killer, Bunny.

Joe Cowley

Butler keeps grabbing that right shoulder. Not good. Gutting through it. Definitely not feeling "burst'' in that shoulder.

Nick Friedell

Always a ton of Bulls fans here in Sacramento. This is the most excited I've seen a Kings crowd in five years though.

Joe Cowley

Flagrant foul. That's Kirky being Kirky.... and a bit dirty.

Joe Cowley

17-4 run - according to @KC Johnson. I can't count that high. Just know it felt bad.

Joe Cowley

Bairstow ... The Thumper from Down Under!!!!

KC Johnson

Cameron Bairstow in the house. 4 fouls on Mirotic and 3 on Taj.

Joe Cowley

True story: They just announced, "This day in Kings history: Chris Webber scored 19 points.'' Wow, a whole 19 points??

Chuck Swirsky

Kings on a comeback 37-37

Joe Cowley

Cousins obviously picked up flopping over in Spain this summer. #FIBAProblems

Joe Cowley

Boogie and Dunleavy checking in at the same time. It's like Balboa-Clubber all over again.

Joe Cowley

Casspi showing that you can be a bum player in the NBA and still talk smack.

Joe Cowley

That Snell missed jumper? He had a wide open McDermott to his left.

Sam Smith

Bulls running out of deputies; Mirotic w/4th foul early in second. Anyone seen Bairstow?

Chuck Swirsky

Mirotic with 4 fouls. Bulls lead at 3

Joe Cowley

Niko with four now. That will mess up the rotation. Dust off Nazr and get him ready!!!

KC Johnson

4 fouls on Mirotic.

Joe Cowley

Good Noah knee night ... obviously.

Joe Cowley

Butler getting a breather. Tony Snell sighting.

Nick Friedell

Brad Miller gets a nice ovation from the fans in Sacramento -- he's rocking a Wrigley Field 100 year anniversary hat.

Joe Cowley

By the way @Chuck Swirsky has demanded that every visiting arena have a video tribute for him the rest of the season.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 29-22 bulls bench Brooks -Mirotic each with 5 Kirk 5 Dunleavy with 6

Joe Cowley

Said it before, but standing as an NBA franchise can be determined by your trampoline guys. Kings? Bad, bad, bad.

Sam Smith

Arena that used to be advertised as loudest eerily quiet with Bulls 29-22 first quarter lead. Cows upset and took their bells.
