James Jones is NOT gonna like this RT @Houston Rockets: Long live the new King. http://t.co/ecsKqMtYuh

Sam Smith

Bulls lose to Clippers and lose another starter to injury. blogs.bulls.com/2015/03/bulls-…

Chuck Swirsky

Way too many people are leaving us...RIP one of the ALL TIME greats Gordie Gillespie. A man of character and integrity.

Chuck Swirsky

Are you sure you re all right? You sure?

Chuck Swirsky

Really ,really good NBA game ....

Chuck Swirsky

LeBron channeling Chris Dudley.

Chuck Swirsky

So remember the NBA releases last 2 min on officials calls at crunch time. Last Rockets sequence was rather bizarre.

Chuck Swirsky

I want Cavs and Rockets to play nine overtimes.

Chuck Swirsky

Prior to the game caught up with legendary referee of 38 years Joey Crawford and no he did not tech me up http://t.co/htpTPl6y2u

Vincent Goodwill

Harden put somebody in a blender!!! Pardon me, in partaking this at a Harold's. Chicagoans say this is some of the best y'all have to offer

Vincent Goodwill

Butler's elbow, Gibson's ankle, the injuries keep piling up for the Bulls: bit.ly/1EZ1m0O #BullsTalk

Pau Gasol

Congrats to my good friends @RafaelNadal for his victory in Buenos Aires and @DavidFerrer87 in Acapulco!

Pau Gasol

Felicidades a mis buenos amigos @RafaelNadal por su triunfo en Buenos Aires y a @DavidFerrer87 en Acapulco!

Sam Smith

Thibodeau on Hinrich 0-7: "Kirk is battling through injury; we’re shorthanded and he is giving us what he has."

Sam Smith

Mirotic: "The most important thing with our team is whenever something happen here we are together and we really try to find a way."

Sam Smith

Mirotic w/29 pts and 9 rebs: "I am trying to play well, but we lost the game and I have a bad feeling about this game."

Sam Smith

Mirotic on career hi 29: "Tough game for us because we lost. Without Derrick without Pau without Jimmy, so somebody need to shoot the ball."

Sam Smith

Thibs on 31% shooting: "When your primary scorers are out it’s going to be a struggle. But we’ve go to be able to find a way to win."

Sam Smith

Thibodeau on Butler leaving in 3rd: "It’s a hyperextension of the elbow; he’ll have an MRI tomorrow; so we’ll find out more then."

Sam Smith

Thibs on Gasol 4&15: "I want to give Pau credit, Pau is sick, very sick. He knows we’re shorthanded; he got out there and gave us everything

Sam Smith

Thibodeau on 96-86 loss: "You’ve just got to find a way to win; that game was winnable down the stretch and we just didn’t get it done."

Nikola Mirotic

A few missed opportunities today, time to get ready for Tuesday @Chicago Bulls

KC Johnson

Taj Gibson is in a walking boot. Jimmy Butler has Monday MRI scheduled. And Rose out 4-6 weeks. Same old story for Bulls.

Nick Friedell

Taj Gibson is in a walking boot.

KC Johnson

Derrick Rose continued his rehab today and continues to say he'll return this season.

Vincent Goodwill

Gasol is still very sick, Thibs said. Likely contributed to his 2-13 performance and struggles against Jordan

Vincent Goodwill

Hyperextended elbow for Butler. MRI upcoming

Nick Friedell

Thibs says Butler has a hyperextended elbow and will have an MRI tomorrow.

KC Johnson

Thibodeau said Butler will have MRI on hyperextended left elbow on Monday.

KC Johnson

Thibodeau credited Gasol for playing through illness because Bulls were shorthanded.

Nick Friedell

Thibs says Gasol is still very sick. Gave him credit for getting out there and playing.

Nick Friedell

The last Bulls FG by a player other than Mirotic came with 3:10 left in the 3rd -- Tony Snell hit a 3.

Nick Friedell

Mirotic was 11-for-23 from the field. The rest of the Bulls were 16-for-64. Unbelievable.

Chuck Swirsky

LAC 96-86 --Final Jordan with 26 reb Niko with 29-9

Nick Friedell

Nikola Mirotic finishes with a career high 29 points. Crazy part is that he was only Bull to score FG in 4th according to @JeffGurt.

KC Johnson

Playing without Taj Gibson and losing Jimmy Butler to a sprained left elbow, Bulls shoot season-low 31 percent and fall to Clippers.

Sam Smith

Mirotic gets his career hi in points with 29 as the Bulls struggle to keep shooting above 30 percent; now 31.4; 33.3 season low

KC Johnson

New career-high of 29 points for Mirotic.

KC Johnson

With 1:14 left in 4th, Joakim Noah's free throw is first 4th-quarter point for Bulls by somebody other than Mirotic.

Chuck Swirsky

The loss of Butler too much to overcome.

Sam Smith

Bulls go to intentionally fouling DeAndre Jordan; in those 6 possessions Clips outscore Bulls 7-2; strategy only works if you can score

Nick Friedell

Hinrich isn't the only problem on offense today. Pau Gasol is 2-for-13 from the field. Butler was 3-for-9 before he left.

Vincent Goodwill

CP3 hits a jumper and that’ll likely do it. 92-82 with 1:50 left

Sam Smith

Bulls shooting 32.9% w/2:41 left, third game in last four they'll shoot well below 40%; maybe need a 4 p.m. start; noon and 7 not working

Nick Friedell

Hinrich is hurting more than he's helping today. I know Thibs trusts him, but he is no threat offensively.

Mike McGraw

Mirotic has 26 points, Gasol has 4. #Bulls trail Clips 88-82 with 2:41 left & Jordan going to line.

Vincent Goodwill

Pau tells the ref: “I’m gonna foul him” then pats DeAndre Jordan on the back after a love tap of a foul. 88-82 Clippers

Mike McGraw

Seemed like this game was building to a "Bulls can't score in 4th quarter" conclusion.

Sam Smith

Bulls start grabbing DeAndre Jordan; officials initially not calling foul as must have figured it was one of those NBA player hugging things

Vincent Goodwill

Nikola hits a jumper and then hack a dre, Part 2 begins. Jordan hits 1 of 2

KC Johnson

Hack A Jordan has begun. Bulls used Hack a Drummond in Detroit loss.

Sam Smith

Mirotic w/22, five off career hi with 5:25 left and Clippers ahead 82-78.

Chuck Swirsky

Butler's loss is huge in many ways..left game with just over 9 min left in 3rd

Chuck Swirsky

Clippers 82-78 5:25 left 4th

Chuck Swirsky

Jordan with 22 rebounds

Vincent Goodwill

Jamal Crawford starting to cook. Almost taunting the Bulls with his ability to create shots

Sam Smith

DeAndre Jordan enter w/8:22 and Bulls ahead 76-75; foul him; Yes! Even when the Bulls have the ball

Sam Smith

Mirotic with the pump after back door cut and score on beauty of a pass from Noah, Hans and Franz; 75-73 Bulls

Chuck Swirsky

Niko had a tremendous ballgame...19 points ( 3rd highest scoring game) 75-73 Bulls 848 left 4th

Nick Friedell

Mirotic is hyped. Bulls are going to need him down the stretch. Especially if Gibson and Butler have to miss a few more games.

Vincent Goodwill

and Nikola is lighting Matt Barnes a new one. Another backdoor layup and foul. 75-73 Bulls

Vincent Goodwill

Butler is out for the game

Nick Friedell

Bulls PR says Jimmy Butler is done for the game because of a left elbow sprain. It did not look good.

Vincent Goodwill

Joey Crawford better watch it with jumping off that bad knee. He’s just coming off a surgery

KC Johnson

Bulls PR now say Butler won't return with sprained left elbow.

Nick Friedell

Kirk Hinrich is 0-for-6 on the night. Continues to struggle offensively.

Chuck Swirsky

Butler will not return

Vincent Goodwill

Butler is questionable with a left elbow sprain. Tie game at 69 headed to the last 12 minutes. CP3 with 21 and 11. Jordan with 20 boards

Mike McGraw

Yep, those are the 2 choices RT @suzannesublette: Then V-G says the Bulls "may or may not" match a top offer on Butler.

KC Johnson

Bulls at 32.8% shooting through 3 quarters vs. Clippers. Season low is 33.3% vs. Utah in early January.

Mike McGraw

#Bulls and Clips are tied 69-69 at end of 3Qs. Brooks (14 pts) coming alive & Bulls are 9-19 from 3-pt land. Jordan held to 3 rebs in 3rdQ.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls in 3rd quarter 5-9- 3s... 2 point fgs in 3rd 2-14fg tied at 69 we go to the 4th

Chuck Swirsky

Butler- left elbow sprain..questionable to return

Mike McGraw

Did I see that right, Jamal just blocked Gasol? #Bulls

Vincent Goodwill

Noah gets huge applause from crowd on his way out for Mirotic

Mike McGraw

Thibs, Gar & Pax are all good at what they do. Just need to get in synch. #Bulls

KC Johnson

Snell shot 52.2% from 3-point range in February. He's 3-for-4 vs. Clippers so far.

Vincent Goodwill

Back to back triples from Snell and Brooks, bouts of scrappy play puts Bulls up 67-64

Sam Smith

Butler to locker room with elbow injury to join Rose and Gibson; anyone seen E-Rob or Ron Mercer?

Nick Friedell

Butler went to the back. The freeze frames of that elbow don't look good. Bulls already really shorthanded.

Vincent Goodwill

CP3 just worked Brooks for a crossover and jumper. Bulls up 2 though

Chuck Swirsky

LAC on a 6-0 run....Paul with 21- Bulls 61-59- 5:29 left 3rd

Vincent Goodwill

Butler to the locker room. That can’t be good news

KC Johnson

Butler has left the bench and headed to locker room.

Mike McGraw

Jimmy Butler going to locker room. #Bulls

Vincent Goodwill

According to my timeline, Jeff Van Gundy has started in on the Bulls mgt

Mike McGraw

On press row, we're all wondering what Van Gundy is saying about Thibs, Gar & Pax right now. #Bulls

Vincent Goodwill

Check that, left arm for Jimmy Butler. Quick brain fart

Vincent Goodwill

I had left arm in my head, said “Right”…long day already LOL RT @alanjmr29: left arm

Mike McGraw

#Bulls are slowly doing an '05 White Sox reunion -- Jermaine Dye today, Joe Crede earlier this week.

KC Johnson

In late November interview, Noah said "there's no doubt in my mind" he'd get past offseason knee surgery by season's end.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 52-48 early 3rd

Vincent Goodwill

Butler’s in a lot of pain after running into a DeAndre Jordan screen. Hurt his right arm, receiving attention now

KC Johnson

Borderline broken record, but Noah has been different player since day of Warriors game when he said he felt best he's felt all season.

Mike McGraw

Butler leaves after hitting left elbow on a DeAndre Jordan screen. Hopefully just a funny bone mishap. #Bulls

KC Johnson

Snell in for Butler, who is holding left arm after hitting Jordan screen.

Nick Friedell

Butler being checked out of the game. Grabbing his left arm, near his elbow.

Chuck Swirsky

Butler leaves-left elbow

Chuck Swirsky

Noah with season high in FTA (12)
