HoopsHype Chicago Bulls twitter
Most any night seeing live music is a good night. Sometimes, without amplification, it can be sublime.
Kansas City is ready to party. Only problem is this is the most disorganized parking scene I've ever seen. Cars stuck everywhere.
Mike Moustakas just made @sportscenter's play of the day. His teammates held up play to watch the replays of that catch.
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.
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
Better yet instead of shortening pre season games from 48-44 min. How about 4-6min quarters! Lol .
No Bron or Irving tonight..Cavs and Bucks on TV...welcome to my world...NO complaints..Very fortunate! Love it.
It's awesome to see how excited some cities still get about being on national TV. Kansas City is enjoying the moment.
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.
If you're lucky enough to be able to take your dad to a game take advantage of it. http://t.co/DCOzdfdiiE
If NBA wants to shorten games, shouldn't it start by eliminating the clear path foul? That's probably 10 minutes of watching replays.
Rose, on whether Thibodeau's constant pushing ever gets tiresome: "I'm numb to it."
Rose said he's "numb" to Thibs concerns and complaints.
DRose downplayed Thibodeau's concerns over how team is playing, said Bulls will be fine. Said everyone entitled to opinion.
Rose said everyone's entitled to their opinion.
DRose doesn't agree with Thibs at all concerning the state of the team's progress.
Gasol had the day off because of minor back soreness.
Thibodeau said Gasol had minor tightness in back.
Thibodeau said Gasol got a maintenance day today. I need a maintenance day.
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.
NBA will experiment with a 44-minute game (Nets-Celtics). League is tripling TV revenue, but wants to give the fans less to watch?
The Rose ESPN Magazine piece is incredible A must read. Great insight with new and different layers of Derrick that we learned .Well done
NBA experimenting with a 44 min pre season game. As a fan what changes would you make to enhance your love of the game ?
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.
Noah on Butler's recent performance: "Jimmy doesn't have any rust, I'll tell you that. No rust. No rust for the Jimbo."
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.
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."
Just dawned on me that Gasol took Boozer's old locker.
Thibs: "We need to get an edge. We don't have an edge right now."
Gasol with 4 more blocks vs. Nuggets. Now has 12 in 4 games.
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
Bulls finally a .500 preseason team again with 110-90 victory over Nate Robinson's Nuggets after trailing by 21 in second quarter
Bulls beat Denver 110-90 after trailing by 21 late 2ndQ. Butler 21, McDermott 16, Rose & Taj 15 each, Mirotic 11.
Final score: Bulls 110-Denver 90. Butler Player of the Game.
Bulls win 110-90 Butler 21-6 Rose 15-5-5 Gibson 15-4 McDermott-16 Niko-12
Solid outing by McDermott -- 16 pts, 5 rebs, 1 TO, 2 fouls. He's been productive without a lot of rookie sloppiness.
Good win for the Bulls tonight. Came back from being down 21 and dominated the Nuggets in the 2nd half. 110-90 final.
Bullw with a huge second half...once trailed by 21 in the 1st half..excellent 2nd and 3rd quarters
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.
McDermott has gone from almost being replaced by Tony Snell to dropping in 13 points and grabbing 5 rebounds tonight.
Snell and Bairstow in, as well as Moore.
Mirotic now 1-for-5 from three after he finally hit an open one to put the Bulls up 98-85.
Quincy Miller getting some run for Nuggets. Former Baylor freshman grew up in North Chicago.
Nurkic scored 15 points tonight, but fouls out in 14 minutes of action. He's good on the offensive end, no doubt.
Second unit now allowing Thibodeau to sleep tonight ... at least after four hours of film watching in his office.
Very apparent thus far in preseason: McDermott spaces floor whether his shot is falling or not. Defenses pay attention to him.
Pre season or no pre season..21-thousand plus here at the UC..and the game ops department is bringing it
Brooks with a floater low right---Bulls extend their lead 87-75
Bulls go to the 4th up 83-75 Butler 21-6 Rose 15-5-5...
Taj Gibson basically has to coach Mirotic on the floor.
Bulls lead 79-75 and the second unit is in. Ruh-roh!
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.
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.
Robinson hits a "Hail Mary" 3 ball from 40 feet with the clock expiring....only Nate can do these things-seriously
Then he goes all Nate, and hits a miracle three-pointer as the shot clock hits zero.
Nate being Nate
Nate Robinson gets a nice ovation from the crowd. People will always remember that Brooklyn game in the playoffs where he went off.
Nate Robinson acknowledges crowd after receiving solid ovation after first check-in.
Fans cheer Nate Robinson....
Nate Robinson finally in the game ... loud applause.
Check that, 20:33 of PT for Rose. Point of previous post remains.
Value is only going up, Bulls front office. Pay the man!
Butler is flat out awesome
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.
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.
Since a few minutes left in the first half, Bulls have played their best stretch of preseason basketball. Do with that what you want.
Butler doing it all..another strip and a foul to the cup
Jimmy Butler just went NBA2K on that move.
Butler with a steal..a wrap around drive past Lawson...Butler with 17 67-67
Thibs wants the ball to "hop.'' So far this preseason, it's kind of stumbling along from player to player.
Starters still look clunky on offense.
Noah gets his 5th foul at 8:35 mark of 3rdQ.
Noah picks up his 5th foul....Denver 64-62 837 left 3rd
Jimmy and Nate exchanging friendly expletives before the start of second half.
The new "C'' logo on the Bulls warm-ups has to go. Put the Bulls logo. The only "C'' belongs to Cleveland ... C-Town.
Midnight practice cancelled? We'll see. Second half coming up.
