Most any night seeing live music is a good night. Sometimes, without amplification, it can be sublime.

Nick Friedell

Kansas City is ready to party. Only problem is this is the most disorganized parking scene I've ever seen. Cars stuck everywhere.

Nick Friedell

Mike Moustakas just made @sportscenter's play of the day. His teammates held up play to watch the replays of that catch.

Chuck Swirsky

Some of these new basketball court designs are just too busy.Call me old school but I love the Bulls floor... clean ,simple and traditional.

Pau Gasol

Enjoying the rain in #Chicago today! It's a really beautiful city as I continue to discover more of… instagram.com/p/uJ3ai1n2Ed/

Dave Blatt without two stars " You know, I'm a lot better coach when I have Bron and Irving on the floor."Life in NBA http://t.co/v1BBX5Tcrg

Chuck Swirsky

Better yet instead of shortening pre season games from 48-44 min. How about 4-6min quarters! Lol .

Chuck Swirsky

No Bron or Irving tonight..Cavs and Bucks on TV...welcome to my world...NO complaints..Very fortunate! Love it.

#repost made me laugh out loud when I saw this

Sam Smith

It's a combo narrative/oral history making the case society and sport never will experience anyone like him again. bit.ly/1slqPht

Sam Smith

Still working on my 2nd idea; it's the 30th anniversary of MJ's NBA debut and I have a new book: There Is No Next amzn.to/1r3EHHV

Nick Friedell

It's awesome to see how excited some cities still get about being on national TV. Kansas City is enjoying the moment.

Mike McGraw

The city of Pittsburgh, maybe. RT @jon_greenberg: They figured I had enough ideas for the city.

Chuck Swirsky

Kevin Love has been ripped by a few writers because they say he hasn't made the playoffs or hasn't made his teammates better- what a joke.

Nick Friedell

If you're lucky enough to be able to take your dad to a game take advantage of it. http://t.co/DCOzdfdiiE

Nikola Mirotic

Caught my boy doug mcBUCKETS getting fresh. @Doug McDermott http://t.co/QDpxkLPdrh

Mike McGraw

If NBA wants to shorten games, shouldn't it start by eliminating the clear path foul? That's probably 10 minutes of watching replays.

KC Johnson

Rose, on whether Thibodeau's constant pushing ever gets tiresome: "I'm numb to it."

Joe Cowley

Rose said he's "numb" to Thibs concerns and complaints.

KC Johnson

DRose downplayed Thibodeau's concerns over how team is playing, said Bulls will be fine. Said everyone entitled to opinion.

Joe Cowley

Rose said everyone's entitled to their opinion.

Joe Cowley

DRose doesn't agree with Thibs at all concerning the state of the team's progress.

Joe Cowley

Gasol had the day off because of minor back soreness.

KC Johnson

Thibodeau said Gasol had minor tightness in back.

KC Johnson

Thibodeau said Gasol got a maintenance day today. I need a maintenance day.

Pau Gasol

Con ganas de ver a @DANIROVIRA presentando los #PremiosGoya2015! Enhorabuena! #risas

True story when I reviewed that Foo Fighters' Riv show in 1997: I got hit in the eye with a clog somebody hurled from mosh pit. A clog.

KC Johnson

Foo Fighters' show at Cubby Bear made me recall time I masqueraded as concert reviewer for Trib way back in 1997. trib.in/11k3zGf

Nick Friedell

Brian Shaw has an interesting theory about injuries.RT @ESPNChiBulls: Thibs gets offensive regarding injuries es.pn/1w611qL

Jimmy has been Bulls' best all-around player so far. RT @ESPNChiBulls: Butler shines as Bulls bounce back es.pn/1w4YxZH

Mike McGraw

NBA will experiment with a 44-minute game (Nets-Celtics). League is tripling TV revenue, but wants to give the fans less to watch?

Chuck Swirsky

The Rose ESPN Magazine piece is incredible A must read. Great insight with new and different layers of Derrick that we learned .Well done

Chuck Swirsky

NBA experimenting with a 44 min pre season game. As a fan what changes would you make to enhance your love of the game ?

Nick Friedell

This story about Derrick Rose is awesome. If Wright Thompson writes it -- you should read it. espn.go.com/espn/feature/s…

Chuck Swirsky

Oct. 14, 2014 – The NBA announced today that it will play a 44-minute game during the 2014 NBA preseason when the Nets/ Celtics bOct. 19.

Chuck Swirsky

Outstanding piece by Wright Thompson on Derrick Rose.... fb.me/6NQrx1Atu

Chuck Swirsky

Wright Thompson, an exceptional writer has an in-depth piece on @Derrick Rose espn.go.com/espn/feature/s…

The guy with the 2nd pick in my fantasy hoops draft is taking Kevin Durant no matter what. But where SHOULD he go? basketballinsiders.com/fantasy-where-…

Bulls start off rocky but finish on a high to surmount Denver's challenge. blogs.bulls.com/2014/10/bulls-…

Pau Gasol

Otro buen trabajo de equipo esta noche en la victoria contra Denver! Seguimos progresando como grupo. #SeeRed #Together

Pau Gasol

Another good effort by our team tonight on our win against Denver! We continue to make progress as a group. #Together #SeeRed

Nikola Mirotic

Good team win tonight! Thanks everyone for your support !! #GoBulls

Nick Friedell

Noah on Butler's recent performance: "Jimmy doesn't have any rust, I'll tell you that. No rust. No rust for the Jimbo."

Mike McGraw

Thibs: "We have a lot of guys who aren't sharp right now." He later called out Taj, Butler & Hinrich as guys who have played well.

KC Johnson

Noah on Thibs: "“He’s always pushing buttons, and I think it’s a good thing. As soon as you get comfortable, you get your ass kicked."

KC Johnson

Just dawned on me that Gasol took Boozer's old locker.

Nick Friedell

Thibs: "We need to get an edge. We don't have an edge right now."

KC Johnson

Gasol with 4 more blocks vs. Nuggets. Now has 12 in 4 games.

Sam Smith

Jimmy Butler salary drive impressive with team high 21 pts, 6 rebs. Doug McDermott off bench with 16 pts. 3-4 on threes. Rest of team 3-15

Sam Smith

Bulls finally a .500 preseason team again with 110-90 victory over Nate Robinson's Nuggets after trailing by 21 in second quarter

Mike McGraw

Bulls beat Denver 110-90 after trailing by 21 late 2ndQ. Butler 21, McDermott 16, Rose & Taj 15 each, Mirotic 11.

Joe Cowley

Final score: Bulls 110-Denver 90. Butler Player of the Game.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls win 110-90 Butler 21-6 Rose 15-5-5 Gibson 15-4 McDermott-16 Niko-12

Mike McGraw

Solid outing by McDermott -- 16 pts, 5 rebs, 1 TO, 2 fouls. He's been productive without a lot of rookie sloppiness.

Nick Friedell

Good win for the Bulls tonight. Came back from being down 21 and dominated the Nuggets in the 2nd half. 110-90 final.

Chuck Swirsky

Bullw with a huge second half...once trailed by 21 in the 1st half..excellent 2nd and 3rd quarters

Joe Cowley

If this was NBA2K, a lot of these players would be in that junkie pack you get to open at the start of My Team.

Nick Friedell

McDermott has gone from almost being replaced by Tony Snell to dropping in 13 points and grabbing 5 rebounds tonight.

Joe Cowley

Snell and Bairstow in, as well as Moore.

Joe Cowley

Mirotic now 1-for-5 from three after he finally hit an open one to put the Bulls up 98-85.

Mike McGraw

Quincy Miller getting some run for Nuggets. Former Baylor freshman grew up in North Chicago.

Mike McGraw

Nurkic scored 15 points tonight, but fouls out in 14 minutes of action. He's good on the offensive end, no doubt.

Joe Cowley

Second unit now allowing Thibodeau to sleep tonight ... at least after four hours of film watching in his office.

KC Johnson

Very apparent thus far in preseason: McDermott spaces floor whether his shot is falling or not. Defenses pay attention to him.

Chuck Swirsky

Pre season or no pre season..21-thousand plus here at the UC..and the game ops department is bringing it

Chuck Swirsky

Brooks with a floater low right---Bulls extend their lead 87-75

Nick Friedell

Good question. Ask @jeremythum RT @aaronmcondon do fans get a free Big Mac even in the preseason?

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls go to the 4th up 83-75 Butler 21-6 Rose 15-5-5...

Joe Cowley

Taj Gibson basically has to coach Mirotic on the floor.

Joe Cowley

Bulls lead 79-75 and the second unit is in. Ruh-roh!

Joe Cowley

Aaron Brooks took a wild shot, and missed the fact that Taj Gibson was in the post with Nate Robinson guarding him. Thibs not happy.

Mike McGraw

Nate Robinson gets a big ovation when he checks in -- almost a Steve Kerr-caliber ovation -- and drains a 40-footer at shot clock buzzer.

Chuck Swirsky

Robinson hits a "Hail Mary" 3 ball from 40 feet with the clock expiring....only Nate can do these things-seriously

Joe Cowley

Then he goes all Nate, and hits a miracle three-pointer as the shot clock hits zero.

Nick Friedell

Nate Robinson gets a nice ovation from the crowd. People will always remember that Brooklyn game in the playoffs where he went off.

KC Johnson

Nate Robinson acknowledges crowd after receiving solid ovation after first check-in.

Chuck Swirsky

Fans cheer Nate Robinson....

Joe Cowley

Nate Robinson finally in the game ... loud applause.

KC Johnson

Check that, 20:33 of PT for Rose. Point of previous post remains.

Joe Cowley

Value is only going up, Bulls front office. Pay the man!

Chuck Swirsky

Butler is flat out awesome

KC Johnson

Hinrich in for Rose, who has played 3 segments and 20:07. Usually, that's it. Thibodeau wouldn't say if he gets 4th segment tonight.

Nick Friedell

Rose coming out for Hinrich. Rose is 4-12 from field, 6-6 from the line. 15 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists in 20 minutes.

Joe Cowley

Since a few minutes left in the first half, Bulls have played their best stretch of preseason basketball. Do with that what you want.

Chuck Swirsky

Butler and @Derrick Rose =34 Bulls 71-67 5:33-3rd

Chuck Swirsky

Butler doing it all..another strip and a foul to the cup

Mike McGraw

Something tells me Jimmy Butler is going to get more than the 3 yrs, $30 million the #Bulls offered Luol.

Joe Cowley

Jimmy Butler just went NBA2K on that move.

Chuck Swirsky

Butler with a steal..a wrap around drive past Lawson...Butler with 17 67-67

Joe Cowley

Thibs wants the ball to "hop.'' So far this preseason, it's kind of stumbling along from player to player.

Joe Cowley

Starters still look clunky on offense.

Mike McGraw

Noah gets his 5th foul at 8:35 mark of 3rdQ.

Chuck Swirsky

Noah picks up his 5th foul....Denver 64-62 837 left 3rd

Joe Cowley

Jimmy and Nate exchanging friendly expletives before the start of second half.

Mike McGraw

Think NBA added that for teams that have won championships RT @regs130: do you know what that yellow patch on back of jerseys is for?

Joe Cowley

The new "C'' logo on the Bulls warm-ups has to go. Put the Bulls logo. The only "C'' belongs to Cleveland ... C-Town.

Joe Cowley

Midnight practice cancelled? We'll see. Second half coming up.

Mike McGraw

That 0-2 start, though... RT @jon_greenberg: Bulls really want that preseason playoffs bonus.
