Nick Friedell

Dunleavy gets a flagrant 1 foul. Lillard gets 3 shots and the Blazers get the ball back.

Joe Cowley

Thought that had flag 2 all over it.

KC Johnson

Flagrant one on Dunleavy and offsetting Ts on Wes Matthews and Brooks. Don't agree with that call. Dunleavy should've been tossed.

Joe Cowley

Meanwhile, "Boogie'' is sitting at home, saying ... "I told you about that Dunleavy ... I told everyone!!!''

Sam Smith

Those battlin' Bulls: More contretempts. Ejections likely coming perhaps for Dunleavy and Brooks and Portland Matthews while 63-45 Portland

Nick Friedell

Meanwhile, Noah appears to be OK -- but he has taken way too many hard falls this year.

Joe Cowley

Was told Aaron Brooks had crazy eyes before he signed with the Bulls. Finally had a chance to see them.

Nick Friedell

Replay being shown -- Dunleavy fouled Lillard hard. Matthews came over and pushed Dunleavy. Crowd is not happy.

KC Johnson

Nobody left Bulls' bench area. But assume that will be a flagrant 2 on Dunleavy.

Joe Cowley

Goodell just fined Dunleavy $25,000.

Joe Cowley

... Dunleavy might have an early night.

Nick Friedell

Noah fell hard on the floor and Bulls ended up getting into shoving match around center court. Couldn't see exactly who was involved.

Joe Cowley

Noah hurt, tempers turn ugly.

Nick Friedell

Some Portland fan convinced Pau Gasol to take a selfie with him as Gasol walked to bench to start 2nd half. Don't worry, he gave a thumbs up

Joe Cowley

Unfortunately, they are going to continue play.

Chuck Swirsky

Portland 61-43. Lillard having a monster game

Joe Cowley

61-43 at the half. Bad, bad, bad ... Varsity beating up the freshmen team. Play the young guys, live to see another day.

Joe Cowley

Noah is a minus-21, but Mirotic's beard is a +15. So that's good.

Joe Cowley

Plus/minus for Lillard tonight ... +35. Wow.

Sam Smith

Noah and Butler in but doesn't do much to stop 14-0 Portland run for 59-39 lead w/1:39 in half. Hear orange slices at halftime look good

Chuck Swirsky

With Lillard on the floor Blazers have out scored the Bulls50-15. Wow

Nick Friedell

The wheels have come off again for Bulls. Blazers up 20. Noah and Butler have been non-factors tonight.

Joe Cowley

Not a good night for the Noah knee ... coming off the back-to-back ... and Snell just got put on a fathead.

Joe Cowley

Noah just got Lillard!

Nick Friedell

Here's one area where Bulls miss Rose/Hinrich a lot. RT @JeffGurt Portland has outscored the Bulls 42-15 with Damian Lillard on the floor.

Sam Smith

Portland got its starters back in; Thibs tries to ride the Four M's and Tony a bit longer. Oh well. Back to 51-39 Portland.

Nick Friedell

Bulls' 2nd unit has played very well but it's time for Thibs to go back to starting group. Blazers have all the momentum again.

Nick Friedell

Paul Allen cross-promotion. Blazers have a Seahawks night at the end of the month when fans can get a picture with Lombardi trophy.

Sam Smith

Four M's and Tony M. Snell get Bulls within 39-35 w/7:18 in half.

Joe Cowley

Ride it out Thibs! Let the kids grow up.

Mike McGraw

Thibs, why wasn't E'Twaun Moore playing more before tonight? Who's going to ask that one? #Bulls

Joe Cowley

Eat that, @Sun-times_hoops!

Joel Brigham

I'm loving this Bulls second unit right now!

Nick Friedell

Bulls' 2nd unit of Moore, McDermott, Snell, Mirotic, Nazr playing with confidence right now. Bulls' bench races off floor to give them love.

Chuck Swirsky

Portland 37-27 837 left 2nd

Joe Cowley

Thibs being very positive with this group as they came off the floor. It's a kinder, gentler Thibs here in Portland.

Mike McGraw

That was E'Twaun Moore's third shot of the season, first points. #Bulls

Joe Cowley

And this lineup still beats the Knicks .... YOU HEAR THAT, MELO??

Nick Friedell

Overheard from a Bulls fan in the stands after Moore knocks down a jumper: "All right! I didn't even know that guy was on our team."

Mike McGraw

Interesting Mirotic moment -- rips down defensive rebound, goes coast to coast and draws foul. #Bulls

Joe Cowley

Blazers finding it hard to shoot ... while laughing.

Sam Smith

Bulls lineup to open 2nd: McDermott, Moore, Mohammed, Snell and Mirotic. Players ask Snell to change last name so they can be the Five M's

Nick Friedell

The backup for Brooks is Moore. He's running the point right now.

Joe Cowley

Or as I like to call it .... SHOWTIME 2.0!!

Joe Cowley

Starting second with ... sit in chair first ... Nazr, Snell, Mirotic, McDermott and Moore running the show.

KC Johnson

Bulls open 2nd quarter with Snell, Mirotic, Mohammed, Moore and McDermott.

Chuck Swirsky

32-21 Portland 66% Bulls 21%

Joe Cowley

32 points allowed in the first quarter. Not exactly how Thibs drew it up.

Sam Smith

Gibson draws third foul late in 1st qtr; Nazr in playing his second minute of season

KC Johnson

Taj Gibson has 3 fouls. Nazr Mohammed over Cameron Bairstow tonight. Mohammed has played 1 minute before tonight.

Nick Friedell

A Nazr sighting in the first quarter @WaddleandSilvy

Nick Friedell

Snell and McDermott getting some early run tonight. Bulls need offense from somewhere. The pair is on floor with Mirotic, Brooks and Gibson.

Joe Cowley

This would be an awesome Summer League lineup right now for the Bulls.

Sam Smith

Aldridge told media no longer holds grudge against Bulls for trading him in draft; Said went hard against them. Has 10 pts; Bulls down 28-11

KC Johnson

In the Bulls' current six-game losing streak here in Portland, they lost 116-74 in 2008 and 122-98 in 2009. It's 28-11 so far tonight.

Joe Cowley

Welcome to R.I.P. City!

Chuck Swirsky

Aldridge with 10. Blazers 28-11 246 left 1st

Joe Cowley

Good thing this game doesn't count. #Roseapologists

Joe Cowley

"The White Flag Game.''

Joe Cowley

The Bulls don't play well in Portland at full strength. At half-mast? Forget about it.

Sam Smith

Bulls start 1-11 shooting. Lots of support in huddle for Aaron Brooks with only basket as everyone's asking how he did it

Nick Friedell

Bulls getting rolled early. Down 16-3 already and are getting run up and down the floor. Bulls just 1-for-11 from the field.

Mike McGraw

Hope there's another game ESPN can switch to. #Bulls fall behind Blazers 16-3. Bulls 1-11 FGs, Por 7-8.

Sam Smith

Bulls early strategy appears to be to give Blazers overconfidence. Portland 16-3 start. Yes, it's working.

Chuck Swirsky

16-3 Portland. That's all I got

Joe Cowley

K.... time to turn the attention to Utah.

Joe Cowley

Lots of good facial hair on and off the court at the Modacenter.

Mike McGraw

Blazers haven't played since Monday. It'll be a surprise if #Bulls can even stay in the game tonight.

Nick Friedell

The Aaron Brooks Show is going down tonight. He's going to play a lot of minutes, score a lot of points. Question is: On how many shots?

Joe Cowley

You know what's gotten real quiet? All the Kevin Love is unstoppable supporters.

Nick Friedell

Bulls' starters tonight: Brooks, Dunleavy, Gibson, Noah and Butler.

KC Johnson

Aaron Brooks, a Pacific Northwest guy, gets the start in Portland.

Sam Smith

More Kirk on rib: "I never really thought it was broken. Just took a really good shot and having trouble with any type of movement really."

Sam Smith

Kirk Hinrich out: "Very sore; just one of those things where I got banged up pretty good and didn’t have enough time to recover for tonight"

Sam Smith

Hinrich hoping a short stay out with rib injury. blogs.bulls.com/2014/11/10871/

Joe Cowley

Rose didn't just refuse to talk. Gave the throat slash refusal when asked. Guess Portland really is a bad memory.

Joel Brigham

Covering my first game in Indianapolis tomorrow, by the way, and I'm thrilled. It's the Phoenix Suns, too, so it should be delightful!

KC Johnson

Rose declined to talk about being in same building where he tore meniscus a year ago Saturday.

Joe Cowley

Rose not talking. So there you go.

Nick Friedell

Hinrich says he's still sore. Says it's actually bruised ribs. Took a few hard shots on them before taking charge from Cousins.

KC Johnson

Hinrich said injury occurred before he took charge from Cousins. Bruised ribs. Hurts to take deep breaths.

Joe Cowley

Moore is indeed your backup Bulls point guard. Butler also an option.

Chuck Swirsky

Dinner with the "enemy" my son TC , Trailblazers coaching staff intern . http://t.co/lg5Jw6yVLO

Nick Friedell

Thibs says Moore could get some more run tonight as a backup point guard. Butler could be used a little in that role as well.

KC Johnson

Thibodeau said Moore and Butler are backup PGs.

Nick Friedell

Thibs says Hinrich is still very sore. He's day to day. So is Rose.

KC Johnson

Thibodeau said Hinrich is day-to-day but is very sore today.

Nick Friedell

Two Bulls jerseys near center court right now: A Hinrich jersey and an MJ 45 jersey.

KC Johnson

Bulls' bus has arrived. Nevertheless, it still doesn't possess many healthy PGs.

Joe Cowley

Bulls warming up in Portland. http://t.co/9hOhsb6QVd

Joe Cowley

Bulls team bus is late. Maybe they stopped to pick up a backup point guard from the Portland Y.

KC Johnson

Bulls' bus stuck in traffic and running late. No players on court warming up yet.

Chuck Swirsky

Movember continues. Beard City in Rip City. Bulls- Blazers 9pm CT pre Bulls Radio Network ESPN 1000 http://t.co/y3E00s0cJh

KC Johnson

Crazy to be here almost one year to the day of Rose meniscus tear. Tomorrow is anniversary. http://t.co/13k2eaHbuc
