Niko with a slam....(3-3 fgs) 26-24 LAC early 2nd

KC Johnson

Note to opponents: Mirotic likes to pump fake. Does it almost every touch.

Sam Smith

Clips 26-18 after one. Early start, Rose and Gibson out, not in rhythm, they said snow and didn't snow much, forget to change calendar...

Vincent Goodwill

Ref Joey Crawford walks 8 feet from media table, stares us all down, looking for familiar faces. Spots @Sam Smith, head nods

Mike McGraw

#Bulls barely hanging in against Clips, trail 26-18 after 1stQ. Chris Paul in control -- 8 pts, 2 asts. DeAndre Jordan has 9 rebs already.

KC Johnson

Thibodeau hasn't liked using E'Twaun Moore at PG but he's played well in his limited role this season. Wonder if he gets shot with Rose out.

Nick Friedell

Butler, Gasol and Brooks are a combined 2-for-12 after the first quarter.

Sam Smith

Austin Rivers in for Clippers; same surname as coach. Kind of amusing coincidence

Chuck Swirsky

No Neil and Stacey so the local call on Bulls Radio and @espn1000 http://t.co/TwNuXogLhJ

Vincent Goodwill

Chris Paul is gutting the Bulls today. 26-18 Clippers lead. He’s getting to the lane, compromising Bulls D. They may have to double him

Chuck Swirsky

End of 1---Bulls down 26-18 Jordan with 9 reb. LAC 10-2 in the paint

Mike McGraw

Jamal Crawford is going to turn 35 in three weeks. Yikes. #Bulls

KC Johnson

Brooks hasn't run with starting assignment. Problem is, Bulls want to keep Hinrich's minutes in 20-24 range. Hinrich prefers that anyway.

Mike McGraw

Besides the Van Arsdale twins

Mike McGraw

DeAndre Jordan: 11.2 pts, 14.2 rebs, .409 FT pct. Andre Drummond: 13.0 pts, 12.9 rebs, .394 FT pct. Most similar guys in NBA history.

Vincent Goodwill

A struggling Brooks goes out, Hinrich in and Butler is now guarding CP3. Thought this would happen

Nick Friedell

The Bulls' offense looks disjointed. 3-for-13 from the field so far.

Vincent Goodwill

Redick just hit a triple over 2 Bulls. Clippers are quicker to the ball all around.

KC Johnson

Noah in last 6 games: 7.7 points, 13.3 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 1 block in 34 minutes.

Pau Gasol

Many thanks to all those who have collaborated! Today is the last day to get your shirt bit.ly/17laiCm

Mike McGraw

#Bulls showing a clear strategy of no dunks for DeAndre Jordan. He's 1-for-4 from foul line.

Vincent Goodwill

Redick steps on line, then barks to ref on the way down, giving Dunleavy enough room to hit a rhythm triple. Can’t do that

Chuck Swirsky

Jordan with 5 first Quarter rebounds 8:02 left

Pau Gasol

Muchas gracias a tod@s los que habéis colaborado!Hoy definitivamente es el último día para conseguir nuestra camiseta bit.ly/17laiCm

Vincent Goodwill

Will be curious to see if the Bulls go to Gasol on the block vs. D. Jordan or put him on the perimeter/midpost

Mike McGraw

Like how these light blue Clippers uniforms have a little Buffalo Braves look to them. #Bulls

Sam Smith

Clippers intros underway; Thibs calling for someone to foul DeAndre Jordan; officials say not yet

Chuck Swirsky

Two St Johns legends http://t.co/2KkYpLKOBP

KC Johnson

Thibodeau called Gibson day-to-day and Gibson is fast healer. But he still can't put full weight on it. So should miss more time.

KC Johnson

Bulls starters: Brooks, Butler, Dunleavy, Noah, Gasol.

Mike McGraw

Blake Griffin is still out with an elbow issue. Clips have been starting Spencer Hawes at PF. #Bulls

Mike McGraw

As expected, Taj (ankle) is out, Gasol will play today vs. Clippers. I suspect Taj will miss a week or two. #Bulls

KC Johnson

Derrick Rose is at Bulls-Clippers. Will address media in coming days.

Chuck Swirsky

A pre game picture before Joey Crawford gave me a tech http://t.co/Cnwco6qi2u

KC Johnson

Thibodeau is considering starting Hinrich vs. Clippers.

Nick Friedell

Thibs says Gibson is out today. Gasol will play.

KC Johnson

Gasol will play vs. Clippers. Gibson will not.

Chuck Swirsky

And......Jerry Krause belongs in Springfield, MA.

Chuck Swirsky

Since I'm on my soap box... it's about time both baseball and basketball recognize the contributions of Jerry Reinsdorf .

Chuck Swirsky

I just don't understand the Baseball Hall of Fame committee... Why isn't Minoso in Cooperstown?

Chuck Swirsky

Who will have the mojo for the Bulls vs Clippers? 11:30 CT pre on Bulls Radio Net. ESPN 1000.

Bulls-Clippers---no local TV..ABC National....so catch myself and @34billy42 with the radio call on Bulls Radio Network and ESPN 1000.

Mike McGraw

With Toronto's loss to New York on Sat, #Bulls are the No. 2 seed in the East at the moment. How long will it last?

Chuck Swirsky

in 24 hours the Blackhawks have seriously upgraded their roster--big time

Chuck Swirsky

Awesome job by @BTN on its 1989 "Flying Illini" --tremendous job. That team and Hakeem's Houston Cougars best teams never to win NCAA title

Vincent Goodwill

You’d think but… RT @cedhorton: good thing this is your Twitter profile and you can tweet about whatever you want..geesh

Vincent Goodwill

It’s smooth. He doesn’t take a lot of space to do his thing RT @Tony Jones: Khris Middleton can play.....love his game

Vincent Goodwill

One night doesn’t make AD any less great of a rebounder RT @jcobey9: I wouldn't even say great.. how many off rebs did amundson have again?

Vincent Goodwill

Drummond is a great rebounder but has to come up with that board there. That’s the difference between playing after April 15 and going home

Vincent Goodwill

Dinwiddie just pulled a Nique! A slow Nique but a Nique nonetheless

Vincent Goodwill

The Wizards are allowing a tired Pistons team to come back on them on the road, after a double-OT game. Danger, Wizards, danger

Vincent Goodwill

Paul Pierce is waiting on a wheelchair

Chuck Swirsky

Officials better tighten things up. Illinois and Northwestern are getting after it Elbows and then some .

Catching Wiz-Pistons. John Wall is a blur . Washington up 21.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls report: Derrick Rose (right knee) is out. Taj Gibson (left ankle) is doubtful. Pau Gasol (illness) is questionable.

KC Johnson

Bulls call Gibson doubtful and Gasol questionable vs. Clippers. Gibson virtually guaranteed to sit. Thibodeau thinks Gasol will play.

KC Johnson

Something would have to go very unexpectedly wrong during Rose's rehab for him not to play for Bulls this season.

Vincent Goodwill

Thibodeau: Rose 'in good spirits' one day after surgery - bit.ly/1EWvqu9 #BullsTalk #Bulls

KC Johnson

Rose will address media in coming days. But he's in good spirits, walking fine, began rehab. Very confident he'll play this season.

Nick Friedell

Rose isn't talking to media yet, but he seems to be in good spirits. Just saw him walking out of the Advocate Center.

KC Johnson

Mirotic on Rose: "We know it’s a tough moment for him. Everyone is here to support him. I really feel bad, still in shock what happened."

KC Johnson

Thibodeau believes Gasol "will be fine" for Clippers.

KC Johnson

Thibodeau said Rose's rehab is mapped out and he's in good spirits.

Nick Friedell

Thibs says Rose started his rehab today. Bulls are 'cautiously optimistic' and that rehab plan is already mapped out.

Nick Friedell

Thibs says Gibson is doubtful for tomorrow. Hopeful that Gasol will be able to play tomorrow.

KC Johnson

Thibodeau said Gibson is sore and didn't practice. Rose started his rehab. Gasol got up shots.

Nick Friedell

Scottie Pippen at practice today.

Pau Gasol

Triste por la noticia de la muerte de Anthony Mason a los 48 años de edad. Jugué contra él. Un gran competidor. #FamiliaNBA #RIPAnthonyMason

Vincent Goodwill

Column: Bulls' title window as fragile as team's health #BullsTalk csnchicago.com/bulls/goodwill…

Pau Gasol

Sad & shocked to hear about Anthony Mason passing at 48. I had a chance to play against him. Fierce competitor. #NBAFamily #RIPAnthonyMason

Vincent Goodwill

Best scene in the movie. Pops: "Hey Marcus, I hear some lady at the office..."

Chuck Swirsky

Wow....RIP Anthony Mason.

Sam Smith

Jimmy Butler heeds the advice of Derrick Rose and continues to star. blogs.bulls.com/2015/02/bulls-…

Been rocking the Kobe IX's but I had to go back home and rock @kdtrey5's #KDVII. Felt just as comfy… instagram.com/p/zok7EXt0Ja/

Sam Smith

Dunleavy on Butler: "He’s really evolving from a guy that can get baskets to handle the ball and get baskets to now make plays for people."

Sam Smith

Butler on Rose return: "Four to six weeks as long as it may sound, I think we can handle that; it’s better than all year."

Sam Smith

More Butler on Rose: "He’s been telling me that (to lead the team) all year. I think it’s a little more now that he's not here."

Sam Smith

Butler on talking to Rose: "He said get out there and get it done, be aggressive and step up; he told me to lead this team."

Sam Smith

Thibs on Butler: "Guards everyone, has a very high basketball IQ. He knows the plays as well as anyone on our team at all the positions."

Sam Smith

Thibs on Butler w/28 &12: Jimmy played a little bit of point, a little 2, a little 3 and a little of the 4. He did just about everything."

Sam Smith

Rare light response from Thibs on Bulls playing more high post offense with Gasol out: "I don’t know what we were doing."

Sam Smith

Thibodeau on Gibson ankle sprain: "Will see tomorrow what it looks like. It is the same one (left) that was giving him trouble before."

Sam Smith

Flip Saunders on Bulls: "Their wings are Dunleavy at 6-10 and Butler at 6-7 and built like a football player. They got rebounds physically.”

Vincent Goodwill

Believe I said “Pau” but we can go to the replay center in New York! RT @ChadUmbarger: are you saying "Paul Gasol"?

KC Johnson

Bulls defeat Timberwolves but lose Gibson to sprained left ankle. trib.in/1LTNY05

Nick Friedell

Butler on relief of hearing Rose timetable: "4-6 weeks as long it may sound, I think we can handle that. It's better than all year."

Chuck Swirsky

No Rose. No Gasol. No Gibson (last three quarters). Bulls grind it out and win !

KC Johnson

Gibson limping badly in postgame locker room.

Mike McGraw

Taj limping badly in locker room, now hopping on one foot to training room. #Bulls

Gibson comes in locker room, limping heavily

Nick Friedell

Gibson limping badly in locker room. Putting no weight on left ankle.
