Derrick Rose has played over 40 minutes in two straight games for the first time since January 2012.
Hill open 19 footer left wing...(26 points)--Bulls down 114-109 with 153 left double OT
"... I could care less .... "
Derrick Rose quotes in 30 minutes: "I'm going to keep taking the shots they give me ... I've got to learn from tonight and move on ...
The only ones pulling for triple-overtime right now are the Suns.
Huge update: Tom Petty not in his courtside seat for start of 2nd OT.
The killer for the Bulls is that all the starters, minus Mirotic, have played heavy minutes and they've got PHX tomorrow night.
Rose misfires right wing 23 footer...double OT here we come 106-106... In 174 games between Bulls-Lakers first double OT between two teams
Spurs would have had five passes on that possession, ending with some back-door cut and basket that makes your eyes tear up.
Derrick Rose misses at the buzzer. No lift on that jumper after 38 minutes. We are headed to double OT at Staples.
I have no words ...
What a ballgame....thanks for listening!
Butler or Rose?
Hill knocks down 17 foot top side jumper 106-106 16sec left in OT Bulls ball
Nine-game losing streak on the line for the Lakers right now. Dignity on the line for the Bulls.
Noah with a big block on Ellington drive ahead 2 w/20 secs in overtime. Screams in delight. Gets 3 screen test offers for Rebel w/o Cause
Bulls have to be very, very encouraged with how Joakim Noah has moved these last two games. He said it's best he has felt all season.
Bulls 106-104 -Lakers ball 9 on the clock 20 sec left in OT
Somebody gif Noah's reaction after that block.
Bulls 105-102 Lakers ball 57 sec left OT
Bulls up 105-102
The squad the Lakers have on the floor right now will be a hell of a D-Team next season.
Rose now 7-for-22 ... Rose-ettes: "At least his turnovers are down...''
... Make that All-Madden, as defense is now swarming Lakers bum team.
Must have been a league memo Bulls not supposed to play defense until 11:30 central time
Bulls just flipped the game difficulty from Rookie to All-Pro.
Both Tom Petty and David Beckham staying in their separate courtside seats for OT.
What have we learned: Butler deserves All-Star, and the Lakers can't break an 8th-grade diamond press.
Bulls second straight overtime game; maybe just want to stay extra in California
Free basketball !!!!! You have got to love it
This is the first time the Bulls have even been tied all game. They've never led. OT after 9-0 in final 1:29 of regulation.
We are headed to overtime at Staples tied at 98. Bulls finally woke up late -- they should win this game by 10 in OT now. The Lakers stink.
Great move by Thibodeau with the no timeout on that possession.
How the heck did that happen? 9-0 Bulls in last last 1:18 to tie game at 98 with 11 seconds left. Hollywood!
Bulls were down 9 with about 1:30 left -- they've tied the game with 11.0 seconds left. The Lakers are really bad.
Beating Bums 101.
Gasol ties the game with a follow up tip 11 sec left 98-98 Lakers ball
This feels like an NCAA tourney game when the #15 seed gets close to the upset and then the #2 seed wakes up at the end.
Butler playing like an All Star with 31 Bulls don 98-94 Lakr ball 52 ec left
Rose--here we go again--limped over to the bench with about two minutes left after twisting awkwardly. But he quickly went to check back in.
98-89 Lakers on a hill fade left of the lane...129 left
The Bulls look frustrated -- but they have nobody to blame but themselves. Terrible effort all night.
Lakers have tied an opponent-season-high with 62 points in the paint.
Limping back into game.
Rose hurt. Out of game.
Lakers Hill at the line.....92-87 LA with 240 left 4th
Thibs looks like he is about to lose his mind.
Lakers have scored 8 str to take a 92-83 lead with 539 left 4th
Thibodeau has changed his mind on Mirotic at SF often this season but this is first time he did so during a game. Hasn't played in 2nd half.
Bulls down 84-83....Bulls with 4 team fouls.
Lakers 80-76 ...after 3. Butler 22---12 of 14 free throws
Signs of life from the Bulls. It only took three quarters.
This is Jimmy Butler's first double-digit FT attempts game since Dec. 29.
After an impressive --- 61 boards vs Warriors being out boarded by Lakers 31-20
Trap game for the Bulls.....down 71-60 454 left 3rd..intensity has picked up--defense has not
The great Tom Petty http://t.co/pEFR7rFi03
The Bulls should be embarrassed. They are losing 59-48 at halftime. Getting out-rebounded 22-12. They have just 3 fast break points.
Bulls allow 59 first-half points and 58.7% shooting by the Lakers.
Bulls down 13, being beaten up on boards. And now the bad news. Boozer back in game for Lakers
Such a bad effort from the Bulls so far. They look like they are just going through the motions.
Bulls seem lifeless against a bad team. Stop me if you've heard that one before.
Lakers 8 of 12 fgs in 2nd
Bulls trail Lakers by 11 -505 left 1st half.
Lakers 38-29 826-1st half...Lakers shooting 60%..came in avg 43%-26th
They don't have the energy to play tonight ... I don't have the energy to tweet.... done...
Bulls have it going according to usual plan: Down 12 in first quarter to lottery team, trailing 28-19 after one; Carlos Boozer high scorer
Lakers 28-19 after 1....Lakers 56% fg
Always so many Bulls fans in Staples. It really is like another home game most nights for Bulls. Well, it's louder here than in UC.
Bulls down 22-14 246 left 1st
Energy Bulls stayed in San Francisco and went straight to Phoenix. We get Don't Care Bulls tonight I guess.
Lakers 16-8 Bulls 33%
Boozer's revenge! Loose ball and jumper, offensive rebound and putback. 16-8 Lakers. Hey, he's a free agent after this season
The people watching at Lakers games is still top notch -- even if the team stinks.
No one likes Boozer ... anywhere he plays.
Mirotic gets second start start in 16th different Bulls starting lineup as mad scientist Thibs at it again with Mirotic at 3 ; Dunleavy out
No Dunleavy again. Mirotic getting a start and stretching out the floor. Bulls should rack up plenty of points with this lineup tonight.
Got to love that the theme from "Welcome Back Kotter" played as Pau's video rolled on the JumboTron.
Pau Gasol getting a standing ovation from Lakers fans.
Bulls starting Mirotic, Gasol, Noah, Butler and Rose.
Bulls starters http://t.co/HZ04fZ9pGb
Dunleavy out for 15th straight game.
Butler on All-Star: "I still feel like I have a long way to go to get where I want to get, to get where we want to get as a team."
Butler: "So if you see me diving on the floor and people are like, "What is he doing? I can't help but be the player that I am."
Butler joked that he would still play D in the All-Star Game: "They might not, but I do."
Jimmy on ASG "I think everybody would love to make the All-Star team in their career. I feel like I've come a long way since I started here"
The Pau Gasol shirt that fans are getting tonight. http://t.co/JyE24SvvZC
Jimmy Butler, smiling, when reminded defense isn't played much at All-Star games: "They may not. But I do."
Thibs on Butler: "We’re thrilled for him. He has worked extremely hard to put himself in that position. His teammates are excited for him."
Dunleavy looks frustrated. He's out.
Dunleavy will warm up and then make a decision.
Biggest snub in the East? The Korver!

Wonder what the Bulls will do in the 2016-17 season for Derrick when he comes back into town as a Laker .... hmmmmm.....
Lakers planning Gasol tribute tonight, and handing out T-Shirts to honor their former big man.
This is the 14th time in franchise history the Bulls have at least two All-Stars. Pau Gasol is a starter and Jimmy Butler a reserve.
