HoopsHype Chicago Bulls twitter
Nate Robinson fined 25-thousand dollars by NBA for public criticism of officials.
Ex-Heat camp guard Charlie Westbrook has been claimed by Miami's D-League affiliate - Sioux Falls - in waiver process, sources tell RealGM.
Stay warm Chicago. High of 25 today.
Good night/good morning Twitter world...thank you for the tweets and for listening to Bulls radio. You are appreciated! Great Bulls win !
Noah on Rose: "I want to win with Derrick Rose. What Derrick represents to this city, there's not a lot of players who have that."
Joakim Noah: "People in this city, they don't like (the) Miami Heat. We don't like the Miami Heat. It always feels good to beat them."
Thibodeau may be happy that the All-Star Noah returned on the court. Beat writers are happy the All-Star quote returned off it.
Noah: "What Derrick represents to this city, there’s not a lot of players who have that. He brings a lot of hope to the city. I feed off it.
Asked Noah why he doesn't like the Heat: "A lot of battles. A lot of scars. A lot of tough losses. A lot of seasons ending because of them."
Noah very eloquent tonight in how much the loss of Rose has affected him. Also, this: "We don't like the Miami Heat."
Thibodeau: "I told our players today: ‘We’re moving in the right direction. We don’t have anything to show for it. But I see it coming.'"
Stat of the night: The Bulls out-rebounded the Heat 49-27.
Awesome game for the Bulls and Bulls fans !
Bulls win 107-87..Boozer 27-9 Noah 17-15 Deng 20 (6th straight game 20 or more) Gibson 19 and 6
Best win of the year for the Bulls given circumstances. 107-87 Final. Carlos Boozer had 27 points. Noah had 17 points and 15 rebounds.
Bulls equipment manager John Ligmanowski just ordered Heat jerseys for all visiting teams in the United Center: Bulls 107-87
Bulls up 107-85 30sec left
Bulls about to beat Miami after Detroit beat Heat in Miami. If that doesn't say Bulls/Pistons Eastern Conference finals....
Good W overall for Bulls in sense they returned to playing way they need to w/out Rose. Defended. Rebounded. But best not to overreact.
Bulls 10 of 19 3s...Bulls up 20
Some big Bulls numbers: Noah 17 and 15; Boozer 21 and 8. But Gibson is making every big play and Heat can't guard him
Deng with a huge three as the shot clock expires. That should do it. Bulls up 98-81 with 3:56 left. Bulls have out-rebounded Heat 46-24.
Deng from downtown a 3 ball Bulls 9 of 18 Bulls 98-81 356 left 4th
Heat cut deficit to 93-79 w/6:10 left. Might have to play LeBron again
Miami making a run Bulls 93-79 610 left 4th
Bulls 89-71 835 left 4th
Everything's going right for the Bulls tonight. Noah even started using the finger guns again.
Jo put them back in the holsters 1 time.
Noah broke out the finger guns after that jumper.
4th quarter coming up Bulls fans..thoughts after 3 ?
End of 3 85-63 Noah 4th dbl-dbl 11-12 reb Boozer 21-8 reb Bulls 8-15 3s
End of 3Qs, Bulls lead the rebounds 40-14. Booz has 21 pts, Taj 15, Deng 14, Hinrich 13, Noah 11 & 12.
Like how little emotion Snell shows on the court. Just plays, good or bad.
Taj Gibson continues his solid play. He has taken the next step in his progression this year.
The Bulls are beating up on the Heat like its Game 1 of a playoff series: 83-61 late 3rdQ.
Taj has that work on the block...so confident right now and Thibs keeps calling his number
Bulls are up 17 and have missed 9 of 25 free throws.
Love the action here at the UC 22, 125 at the UC..Bulls once again playing hard
Bulls 78-59 253 left 3rd Noah 4th dbl-dbl 11-12reb Boozer with 21-7
flagrant 1 for Cole...tech for Kirk
Hinrich and Cole separated by official Ed Malloy
No one handles the regular season HEAT like the Chicago Bulls. I'm rolling my eyes so hard right now. Wish you guys could see it.
Nice half for Boozer: 19 pts, 7-12 FGs, 4 rebs. Bulls lead 58-44.
Bosh is 2-8 FG for 6 pts, 0 rebs in 17 mins.
Heat could use some inside scoring, Bosh isn't doing it.
Bulls up 58-44 at half. Boozer had 19 points. Noah has 10 rebounds. Bulls out-rebounded Miami 27-9. Best half of season given circumstances.
Halftime Bulls 58-44. Boozer-19 Noah 10 reb Bulls 55% James- 17pts Hope you're enjoying the broadcast if not the tweets
Boozer called for foul in lane holding Bosh. Almost as if he thought Bosh might go for a rebound.
Odds Boozer plays for the Heat next year after getting amnestied?
With LeBron's second foul in less than two minutes, NBA calls in to change officiating crew at halftime
There should be a name for LeBron's disgusted walk after he disagrees with a call. It's kind of unique.
Bulls 53-37 153 left 1st half..got to love it
Bulletin just in James picks up a foul..details at 10
Bosh is starting to look like Rasheed Wallace the way he never sets foot in the paint.
wow-wow-wow Bulls by 16
Kirk back for Marquis, bench showed him love. I give Thibs credit for letting him stay out there longer than expected, even to rest Kirk.
Bulls appear to be rotating and helping on defense. When did they decide to do that?
The UC crowd is fired up--love it
LeBron with worst plus/minus thus far for Heat with Bulls ahead 43-28. Same old story, how do they win with him?
UC is going bananas..Bulls 43-28 Bulls 6-6 3s Dunleavy buries left corner 3 ...
The Bulls have a 15 point lead. Noah looks like a different player. Boozer leads all scorers with 10 points. All good right now for Thibs.
This little stretch should do wonders for Marquis' plus-minus.
Beas is unhappy on the bench...meanwhile, Dunleavy hits a trey off a missed-FT o-board and his own save
As far as I can see, Beasley has been in the wrong place on every defensive play so far. But it is early.
Alshon Jeffery with by far the biggest cheer of the dozen or so Bears players shown on the scoreboard so far tonight.
Opponents used to put out lineups like this when Tim Floyd was coaching: Coles, Haslem, Beasley, Lewis, Mason Jr. Your two-time champs
The crowd gives Alshon Jeffery a big cheer as he is shown on the JumboTron.
Bulls are 5-5 from 3 early, 63.6% from the field, 9 dimes on 14 buckets, 18-6 edge on the glass
Taj bustin it again...6pts off the bench... Bulls 36-24 849 left 2nd Q Bulls 63%fg
Bulls finally getting some calls vs. Heat and are 3-for-8 at foul line.
Taj is unaware or simply doesn't care about Beas' new defensive rep.
Gotta believe facing the Miami Heat beats playing the Erie Bayhawks for Marquis Teague.
Bulls up 9---29-20 Boozer with 10pts Hinrich-8pts Bulls 61%fg Bulls 4-4 3s Reb 15-4
Typical Bulls-Heat. Shorthanded home team up 29-20 after 1stQ. Booz 10, Hinrich 8, LBJ 7. Bulls lead rebounds 15-4.
Deng drains a three. Bulls play their best quarter in a week. Bulls up 29-20 after 1. United Center is rocking early.
Norris Cole has given the Bulls problems...let's see if that changes tonight
Marquis checks in for Kirk.
Carlos being aggressive inside is always a positive vs. a small Heat team
Julius Peppers is in the building. Man, that guy sees a lot of Heat games.
Chris Andersen had six points, eight rebounds, two blocks and two steals in season opener vs. Bulls. Impacted game against Bulls active bigs
Bulls up 13-3 in rebounds right now vs. Miami, but I'd expect Rashard Lewis to turn that around.
Heat checking if Bosh can be credited with a rebound if he's within three feet of ball
Where's this Noah been?
Been difficult for Noah to get into games this season, but no trouble tonite: 7 rebounds in first 7 minutes. Heat: 3, all LeBron
When you hear players say things like, "This is 1 of 82." Don't believe them. Intensity on the floor with these 2 teams is always different.
Bulls 14-11 512 left 1st half...Hinrich-8pts---Noah 7 reb.
Bulls PGs have a history of big scoring nights vs. MIA: CJ, Lucas, of course Derrick...Kirk next? I know, too soon
Tony may already be Bulls' best wing handler/passer, esp. in transition...Lu does it, but not necessarily his forte. Jimmy can be reluctant
I thought the Butler-Deng lineup looked pretty good on opening night, but that Snell-Dunleavy sequence was brutal.
Curious how Tony Snell does tonight after his rough emergency duty on opening night. He's been quiet so far.
...regardless of personnel on the floor. No Derrick or Jimmy, but no Wade or Birdman either.
That lack of fear the Bulls have for the Heat, even if hasn't resulted in winning playoff series, means regular-season games are toss-ups...
Noah looks more energized in the first few minutes of this one than he has been since Rose went down. He hates the Heat.
