Chuck Swirsky

Wheels up headed to Toronto. Go Bulls! Wednesday 530CT pre Bulls Radio Network.

Nikola Mirotic

Muy triste. Mi pésame a todas las familias y amigos de las víctimas del vuelo #4U9525. Descansen en paz.

Pau Gasol

Terrible tragedy today. My deepest condolences to the family and friends of the 150 victims of the flight #4U9525

KC Johnson

The Bulls have had 3 different leading scorers (Gasol, Rose, Mirotic) and 3 different leading rebounders (Gasol, Butler, Mirotic) vs. Raps.

KC Johnson

Bulls 3-0 vs. Raptors with average margin of victory of 10.7 points.

Nick Friedell

I can't believe @Dinosaur_BBQ is finally coming to Chicago. If the Bulls aren't playing that night I will be there for the grand opening.

KC Johnson

Doug McDermott, who obviously doesn't have same injury history as Rose, was on active roster 5 weeks, 2 days after similar scope procedure.

KC Johnson

With 2 offdays between Raptors, Knicks, Bulls have opportunity to scrimmage if Rose cleared for contact. Friday is 4 weeks since surgery.

KC Johnson

Bulls fly to Toronto for film, individual shots/workouts. Like most teams, mostly walkthroughs, film now. Only 2 practices in March. But . .

Pau Gasol

Terrible tragedia. Mis condolencias a las familias y amig@s de las 150 víctimas del vuelo #4U9525.

Chuck Swirsky

A bit confusing .different start times floating around for Bulls-Raps Wed. 6PM CT tip - join us on Bulls Radio with @34billy42 Pre 530CT

Chuck Swirsky

3rd straight season @Joakim Noah has registered 250 assists- only 3rd center in 20 years to accomplish that joining Hakeem and Vlade.

KC Johnson

Worth revisiting how Bulls acquired Butler and Mirotic in same draft, which they started with picks 28 & 30. chicagotribune.com/sports/basketb…

Chuck Swirsky

Major props to the Bulls scouting/ front office for locking in on @Nikola Mirotic He's as good as advertised. Plays with spirit, joy,confidence.

Sam Smith

Nikola Mirotic's March march keep the Bulls high stepping. blogs.bulls.com/2015/03/miroti…

Pau Gasol

Great win at home tonight! Incredible atmosphere at the @UnitedCenter! Very happy to have jimmybutler… instagram.com/p/0mUnimn2HR/

[UPDATED] Mirotic's game-high 28 points helps #Bulls clinch playoff spot: bit.ly/1BddHM2 http://t.co/var2kPJvY4

Sam Smith

Butler on Mirotic missing 2fts w/31 secs left to cost fans free food: "If you want to hate someone, hate Niko; I had nothing to do with it."

Sam Smith

Butler after missing 11 games; "I definitely got (shots) up with my 20 balls (6-20); got to be aggressive, that’s what Pau told me to do."

Sam Smith

Butler on Mirotic: "Dude can play. He’s basically carried us this month, to tell you the truth; he’s confident."

Sam Smith

Butler 19 & 9 in return: "Timing wise I’m off; it’s different when you miss that much time, but 40 minutes is enough to test yourself."

Sam Smith

Pau on 47th dbl/dbl, 27 & 12: "It’s my career high, so to be able to establish career highs in your 14th year is something to be proud of."

Sam Smith

More Pau on Mirotic: "This month he has been spectacular; it’s very difficult for a rookie to put up numbers like that, great poise, too."

Sam Smith

Gasol on Mirotic w/28: "What Niko is doing right now with this team in the situation we are in I think is remarkable; give him credit."

Chuck Swirsky

Post game locker-room interviews with @jimmybuitler @Pau Gasol and @Aaron Brooks now up on Bulls.com Enjoy!

Mike McGraw

Jimmy Butler after going 6-for-20: “You've kind of got to shoot the rust out. That's what Pau told me to do." #Bulls

KC Johnson

Butler on Mirotic: "Dude can play. He has basically carried us this month."

KC Johnson

Kirk Hinrich passed Luol Deng for 4th all-time in Bulls franchise history in minutes played. Trails Jordan, Pippen and Sloan.

Nikola Mirotic

What an environment tonight at United Center! So happy to get a big win and get into the playoffs @Chicago Bulls http://t.co/pZ91JWKvzO

Nick Friedell

Only in Chicago can you score 28 points, dominate in the 4th, and still get booed by some fans for not getting them a Big Mac.

Nick Friedell

Mirotic pointed to his chest and appeared to be apologizing to fans. He missed two free throws that could have gotten them to 100.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls win 98-86 Niko 28-8.....Gasol with 27-12...Butler 19-9 7-10FTA

Nick Friedell

Butler dribbles out the clock and looks up at scoreboard as some fans boo because the Bulls didn't get to 100 and earn a Big Mac for fans.

KC Johnson

Bulls clinch playoff berth. Mirotic scores 14 of his 28 in the 4th quarter. Butler with 19 points, 9 rebounds in 1st game back.

KC Johnson

This is Mirotic's 7th double-digit 4th quarter in March.

Sam Smith

Mirotic with the Montenegro flyin, Maxiell cryin, glass breakin, teeth shakin, Hornets quakin, Thibs achin dunk to about close it out

Chuck Swirsky

Gasol with his 47th dbl- dbl ties Oak for most by a Bulls player since 86-87

Nick Friedell

Give Mirotic credit: He went right back after Maxiell a possession later -- got crushed -- and finished for an and 1. Just getting better.

KC Johnson

In the midst of Mirotic's highlight reel, Gasol posted his league-leading 47th double-double.

Vincent Goodwill

The two meet at the rim again, Niko lefty layup and Maxiell foul, his 6th. 93-82. 1:27 left

Nick Friedell

Niko Mirotic just put Jason Maxiell on a poster. Oh my.

Vincent Goodwill

Niko just detonated on Maxiell. Wow

Sam Smith

Bulls hanging on with 89-82 lead despite being walloped on boards by mini Hornets; that does sting

Nick Friedell

It's that time in the night for the: Niko Mirotic just keeps getting better and better tweet. He's got 23 points in 28 minutes tonight.

Chuck Swirsky

Threeeeeeekola Bulls 89-82 Niko with 23 2:33 left 4th

Vincent Goodwill

Kemba misses easy tip in, Niko hits corner triple in transition. Crucial swing. 89-82, 2:33 left

Sam Smith

Like Butler's never been gone; has played 33 of first 42 minutes, leading team in minutes, shots (tied with Gasol at 18) and fts; 84-76 Chi

Chuck Swirsky

Butler---with a 15-6 game.;..5-18 fgs....BUT 8FTA...

Vincent Goodwill

Niko with a great step back on Marvin Williams. Funny even with Butler out there, Niko’s still taking the big shots

KC Johnson

Mirotic now has 7 20-point games in his last 13 after recording 2 in his first 59.

Vincent Goodwill

Touch’. Anomaly, right? Swept Memphis in 13 WCF RT @Ethan J. Skolnick: Dallas took them 7

Sam Smith

Few run worse breaks than Bulls, who committed another t/o on 3-on-2. Apparently they're such good people they don't like unfair advantages

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 76-71 8:53 left 4th

KC Johnson

Forgot to include Gasol's last make. He's 12-for-22. Overall point remains: He's good from 3-point range this season.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls fans...thoughts as we go to the 4th quarter? Thanks for listening to Bulls Radio

KC Johnson

At 11-for-21 from 3-point range, Gasol has shattered career-highs in made 3-pointers and percentage.

Chuck Swirsky

Gasol continues to add to his career high made 3 point fgs....his 12th Bulls finish 3rd Q up 74-69

Sam Smith

Bulls finally get another three from really their only reliable three-point shooter, Pau Gasol, now 12-22 3s on season; 74-69 Bulls end 3

Nick Friedell

Gasol having a big night. As usual. 25 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists. He has been the Bulls' most consistent offensive player all year.

Vincent Goodwill

Pau with another corner triple to end the third. Bulls up 74-69 after 3. He’s got 25. Kemba with 20 for the Hornets

KC Johnson

Pau Gasol has made his last 5 3-pointers.

Sam Smith

Hornets with 21-3 edge on three pointers as Bulls lead 71-64; Yes, and Hinrich has the only three

Vincent Goodwill

No third quarter collapse for the Bulls tonight. Outscore Hornets by 8, lead by 7, 71-64. Brooks got going in the third, has 13 on 10 shots

Sam Smith

Nice defense from Mirotic switch onto Walker forcing 24-second violation, though Kemba did dribble between his legs 16 times for UC record

KC Johnson

Less hung up on Butler's 4-for-14 than impressed by 8 FTAs in first game back.

Vincent Goodwill

I can think of plenty worse off the top of my head RT @bullsfan531: its because shes the worst ref in the league

Chuck Swirsky

Brooks to the rack,.....Bulls 65-60 5:39 left 3rd

Vincent Goodwill

Some refs catch it from players/fans equally. Disproportionately, players don’t get on her as much as fans do. Not by a long shot

Vincent Goodwill

With the exception of a few notable names, not many refs catch hell from opposing fans like Violet Palmer, still. She’s been at it since 97!

Vincent Goodwill

Brooks just made Kemba fall off the dribble, pops a jumper. 57-56 Bulls

Vincent Goodwill

Trying to put a bow on that MVP trophy RT @Candace Buckner: James Harden. 41.

Vincent Goodwill

Bulls have gotten rocked in their last two third quarters, we’ll see if that continues tonight.

Vincent Goodwill

My condolences? RT @SportsVentz: watching Hinrich play in from of Moore does that to you lol

Vincent Goodwill

Bulls trail Hornets 49-48 at the half. Kemba Walker and Mo Williams giving the Bulls fits on the perimeter. Niko Mirotic with 14-5 boards

Chuck Swirsky

Halftime Hornets49-48...Niko-14 Gasol-12

Mike McGraw

Noah Vonleh is at least 2 inches shorter than Mirotic. Both are listed at 6-10. #Bulls

Sam Smith

Hornets, who have won 2 of 3 from Bulls this season, giving Bulls buzzness again and lead 49-48 at halftime

Vincent Goodwill

You sound like a frustrated Bulls fan RT @SportsVentz: Lance has scored 20 once this season... Against the #Bulls smh

Nick Friedell

Yo @ESPNChiPowers why haven't the Blackhawks retired Chris Chelios' jersey yet?

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 46-44 1:22left 2nd Q Gasol-Niko- 12pts Butler-10

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 39-36 5:56 left 2nd Q Niko-Pau each with 12....

Nick Friedell

In his first game in 3 weeks, Jimmy Butler is now 1-for-7 from the field. Needs time to shake off the rust.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 33-30 8:51 left 2nd...Gasol-Mirotic=21pts...

Vincent Goodwill

Stephenson again, taking Bulls players off the dribble. If only his head were on straight...

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 28-26 after 1--Gasol with 12---Niko with 7

Vincent Goodwill

Born Ready has some pop in his step tonight. Definitive moves, quick. Could be an issue for smaller Hinrich

KC Johnson

Mirotic is averaging 7.6 free throws per game in March.

KC Johnson

Aaron Brooks went to the bench, thinking Hinrich checked in for him. Instead, Hinrich checked in for Dunleavy. Oops.

Chuck Swirsky

Charlotte 15-12...Gasol-8pts ...

Vincent Goodwill

Butler’s missed first 3 shots. Jumpers coming up short and flat. Impending doom, right?

Vincent Goodwill

With Gasol at the 5, he’s getting a steady diet of midrange jumpers, as Jefferson is reluctant to contest.

KC Johnson

This is the Bulls' 21st different starting lineup.

Vincent Goodwill

Butler’s elbow has a sleeve on it, and misses his first attempt, a driving layup

Sam Smith

Noah with soreness out tonite; didn't seem mad at anyone so perhaps physical; Butler returns after missing 11 games (5-6).; 21st diff lineup

Mike McGraw

At the moment, Charlotte is No. 8 in the East; half-game ahead of Pacers & Celtics. Since Feb. 7, CHA is 2-0 vs. #Bulls; 6-11 vs. all others

Chuck Swirsky

Jimmy Butler is back http://t.co/sdff9JD58I
