Impressive win for Rockets over Pacers Houston plays Bulls Thursday in Chicago. Rockets back to back home wins over Heat and Pacers
Thibs was not pleased with how his team played but as he walked out of press conference he stopped to give Brenda Rose a hug and a kiss.
My bad, Thibs called last 5 minutes of 3RD quarter a disaster (not 4th, but it could have been).
Thibs: Last 5 minutes of the 4th quarter were a disaster.
That's first time in 12 games that the Bulls have been outrebounded.
Bulls offense stalled out in this one: They didn't score in the final 3:15 of regulation.
Bulls with one field goal in last 5:36 of 85-77 loss, but that was a nice one
Grzz 85-77 Final Taj with 18 Noah 15-8-6
Bulls' 5-game home win streak ends. And this season-high, 6-game homestand isn't getting easier. Heat, Spurs, Rockets and Thunder coming.
Quick stat of what is about to be Bulls loss to Grizzlies: Memphis reserves have more offensive rebounds than entire Bulls team. g'night
Memphis reb 2nd half 27-14 10OR Grzz 85-77 21sec left
Difference in this close game: The Bulls are 2-for-13 from beyond the arc. Augustin just air-balled an open look.
Doesn't happen often to Bulls, but Grizzlies outhustling Bulls to loose balls. Bulls players do appear a bit frightened of bear on jersey
Memphis 81-77 254 left 4th Grzz reb in the 2nd half 21-12 OR Memphis 7-2-Koufas with 4OR
Bulls down 77-75 536 left 4th=---Taj and DJ each with 14 Noah 15-6-6 ...
FYI, Taj ha double figures in 14 straight games.
See? Much less effective going right.
If Boozer sits rest of way, which is likely, that will be the 7th time in 9 games he has played 25 minutes or less.
Can't let Jo drive left.
Bad sequence: Jo on the break with chance to cut it to 3. TO on jump pass instead, Memphis scores on offensive board after transition 3.
Grzz 72-65 930- left 4th
Jo draws 5 seconds on Z-Bo in the post. He'll feel that tomorrow.
Bulls 45% in 3rd Q Grzz 59%-3Q Memphis 14-7 reb in 3rd
Memphis 65-63 after 3--Mike Miller with 2-3s late in the period
Bulls need to get something from Dunleavy in 4th to win this game. He's 2-for-10 tonight.
DJ with his dramatic buzzer-beater heaves and poses.
Bulls in a grind it out game leading 61-54 255 left 3rd Noah with a 15-4-4
Jo with the lefty jump hook from a little deeper than usual.
From the start of the 2nd Q..Bulls shooting a whopping 70% wowza
Hinrich for 3---Bulls 55-48 time out Grzz 642 left 3rd
James Johnson is battling a sore ankle and hasn't played yet. Looked good in previous meeting in Memphis in December.
Conley, another 1 of the league's nice guys, much more aggressive in the 3rd.
Jo with words for TA on bench after that last J. Tony can only laugh.
Love all the in game tweets---awesome and if you're here at the UC..appreciate the focus!
Whether you re listening on Bulls Radio Network. ESPN 1000 or Sirius XM thank you. You are appreciated !
D.J. Augustin gave the Bulls a big jolt. He's got 12 of their 39 points. All in the 2nd quarter. Bulls up 4 at the half.
Bulls 39-35 at the break...DJ and Noah=23pts
Taj and DJ have 20 combined, Bulls starters have 19 after that Jo layup.
Noah 9 pts 4reb...Bulls 35-29 1: 24 left 1st half
Bulls 30-29 Two teams 14 turnovers 244 left 2nd Q
Thibs draws league leading 10th technical among coaches; Rasheed Wallace now has pictures of Thibs on his walls.
Bulls 30-29 244 2nd Q
Thibs T'd up.
DJ has it going in the 2nd. 12 in the quarter, changed complexion of low-scoring game.
With the Bulls the first to reach 30 with 3 minutes left in first half, United Center releases balloons and confetti
We're finally in the 30s here at the ol' UC. With 3:35 until halftime. Bulls 30, Grizz 29.
27-24 Memphis 557 left 2nd Q DJ 60 of last 61 fts wowza
DJ the hoop and harm....Bulls down 23-18 825 left 2nd
Tony's teammates might give him a hard time when that missed layup comes up in film session from the looks of the bench.
Tony Allen just went to greet former fellow Celt Thibs as he checked into game. Thibs fell backward and asked for a charge
Bulls down 15-12 21% Grzz - 33% end of 1
27 combined points after 1 quarter. Exactly what everybody expected -- an ugly, ugly game.
Memphis 13 Bulls 12 - Bulls 23% 0-6 3s
Gasol and Boozer each with 2 fouls
Now they exchange buckets.
2nd on Carlos, Gasol rigth back with an offensive foul.
Bulls 8 Grzz 4- Bulls 28%fg 1-9 outside the paint Memphis 2-10 fgs
If Boozer ends up on Gasol most of the night the Bulls are in trouble. Expect to see Gibson even more tonight.
...are more like Detroit/New York or Brooklyn, and put an emphasis on forcing Jo right off the dribble/limiting his playmaking.
Bulls with 8-4 start first six minutes over similarly defensive Grizzlies. Teams shooting 50%: Bulls 28, Grizzlies 22
2 things I'm watching for tonight: Jimmy's FTA's (12-14 from the line vs. that physical Memphis D in December) and whether the Grizzlies...
Here's a first---thanking TV for the start time.
That would mean paying him close to $30 million in 2018-19 when he's 34.
One significant question re: Carmelo's future is will the Knicks even offer him a five-year max deal?
During 10-2 stretch, Bulls have had 8 different players score at least 19 points. Taj has done it 5 times; Noah & Augustin 4 each.
Zach Randolph, who missed last game with flu, is in vs. Bulls.
Walls have appeared on the Bulls new practice facility. http://t.co/ffdggPskLF
The Bulls will honor the late David Reinsdorf by wearing a patch on their jerseys with his initials (DJR) for the remainder of reg season
The NBA announced time change for Bulls at NY April 13 is now scheduled for a 630CT tip
Noah didn't want to address the 'gossip', as he called it, going around. Very careful not to say Carmelo's name during media session.
"Gossip" is how Jo describes Melo recruiting rumors.
Noah very upbeat about thumb. Wouldn't address Carmelo story. Said whether happened or not doesn't matter for this team.
Noah says his thumb is fine. He has it wrapped. Says he'll be able to play through it.
Noah says he doesn't want to address Carmelo rumors. Asked if it was accurate he said, "it doesn't matter." Never said No.
Thibodeau on Noah's sprained thumb: "From a medical standpoint, the ligament is fine."
Thibs: Jo will play through sprained thumb tonight, participated in shootaround.
Thibodeau says Noah will play.
Thibs says Noah will play tonight. Just a sprained thumb.
Never a big believer in the cliche it's "his/her team" Bulls based on sharing the ball, unity, toughness and heart. Noah would agree.
Noah s popularity is soaring and for good reason http://t.co/kaTVHJIN8j
Game night from the UC. 6pm tip. 530CT pre Bulls Radio Net. ESPN 1000 vs Grzz. High of 43 in Chicago Mich Ave 8am http://t.co/SETcbaNRpa
Can't watch the Lakers. This is really bad. Good night Twitter world .
Wow. Spurs by 15
Initial tests on Noah's thumb showed a sprain, according to a league source. Should get another update tomorrow from Thibs.
James Johnson in town Friday w/ Grizz. Athleticism always evident. By all accounts, he's taking game, commitment to fitness more seriously.
Bulls are off today but early indications are Noah's right thumb injury isn't serious.
Never met Devin Hester. Don't know the man but as a Bears fan thank you for your tremendous accomplishments.
D-League Canton forward Kevin Jones departs today to sign with San Miguel Beermen in Philippines for rest of season, source tells RealGM.
