NBA Playoffs: Bulls defeat Cavaliers 99-92 in second round opener

CLEVELAND: The Bulls closed out the fourth quarter in Quicken Loans Arena with significant contributions from a Big Three featuring Derrick Rose, Pau Gasol and Jimmy Butler to defeat the Cavaliers 99-92.

NBA Playoffs: Bulls lead Cavaliers 81-70 at end of third quarter in second round opener

CLEVELAND: The Cavaliers drew even with the Bulls twice on the scoreboard in the third quarter, but Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler and Pau Gasol didn’t seemed faze one bit. Rose and Gasol were key cogs in a 15-0 run by Chicago in the third quarter. The Cavaliers tied the score at 51-51 and 53-53 following layups by Timofey Mozgov and Kyrie Irving, respectively. The Bulls remained composed under coach Tom Thibodeau, and put together a 10-0 run to lead 63-53 and force Cavs coach David Blatt to call a timeout with 7:14 to go in the quarter. Butler and Rose each accounted for five points...

NBA Playoffs open thread (May 2nd)

Game 7!!!!!!!!!! SAS @ LAC When: 8 p.m. Where: TNT Series tied 3-3 The 2014-2015 NBA season was shaping up to be the best/most competitive season we've seen in a long time, if ever. LeBron James was back in Cleveland with new friends Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, the Warriors are beginning a potential dynasty, the Spurs continue to do Spurs things, Anthony Davis begins his reign over the Earth, Derrick Rose is back to lead his Bulls to the Finals, and many more story lines. The West was as competitive as ever and even the East was giving us something new with the Atlanta Hawks running...

How to rest Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler in a playoff game

The Bulls are wearing down Rose and Butler. The Bucks are exploiting that. Enough has been said at just about every media outlet that Tom Thibodeau does not rest players enough. He unapologetically plays Jimmy Butler for league-leading minutes, as he did Luol Deng; plays Pau Gasol and Derrick Rose for full quarters. After opening the first round of the 2015 NBA Playoffs with a commanding 3-0 lead over the Bucks, the Bulls have failed twice to close out the series, losing Game 4 92-90 and Game 5 94-88. Milwaukee forward Jared Dudley credits Thibs unwillingness to more economically manage...

Quick, someone tell Derrick Rose the Bulls need him to stop stinking

Everybody knows Jimmy Butler is the Bulls’ best player, except for Bulls’ game-night people who insist on introducing Derrick Rose last.

Bulls vs. Bucks: Game Five Second Half Open Thread

Bucks beating the Bulls 52-49 at the half. Milwaukee is actually shooting over 40% and have hit four threes. Best shooting performance of the series for them. On the other end, the Bulls are cold from the floor. Only a .477 eFG%, 3-for-11 on threes (excluding Derrick Rose's heave at the end of the half). Jimmy Butler has ten points, but 3-of-9 shooting; Rose with four turnovers to go with only seven points. Michael Carter-Williams has 14 points on 6-for-8 from the floor, so the Bucks shooting performance is obviously unsustainable. Butler and O.J. Mayo gettin' chippy. LOL Mayo. LET US SECOND...

Bulls Win Rollercoaster 2OT Thriller in Milwaukee

Bulls tried hard to blow this one, but D-Rose and the Bucks wouldn't allow it. What. A. Game. This was a crazy go round, in a lot of ways. The Bulls looked like they were going to get blown off the floor early in the second quarter, following a 22-4 run by Milwaukee, but quickly raced back to draw to a just 4 point deficit at the half. Chicago then grabbed a 3 point lead at the end of the third quarter and the lead was all the way up to 10 points with less than 3 minutes to go. Somehow, on the back of some timely shot-making from Khris Middleton and an untimely missed free throw from Rose...

Bulls vs. Bucks Game Three final score: Derrick Rose secures double-overtime victory

Bulls take a 3-0 series lead In a wild contest that reached 2 overtimes it probably shouldn't have, the Bulls ultimately prevailed after a dominating 2nd overtime to defeat the Bucks . Though the team had to exert itself more than you'd like in a game they had in hand, with the series now a 3-0 lead for the Bulls they have a chance to close things out Saturday and get plenty of rest. This game had a ton of ups and downs, the ups usually coinciding with some brilliant plays by Derrick Rose. Rose had the long-ball working early (including one banker) and started adding explosive drives from...

Bucks vs. Bulls Game 2 preview: Chicago looks to go up 2-0

Kirk Hinrich is out for the second straight game. The Bulls opened the 2015 NBA playoffs in just about the perfect way on Saturday. Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler had big games, the three-pointers were falling and Milwaukee looked incapable of consistently scoring against the Bulls' defense in the half court. It was only one game, but it couldn't have gone much better. On Monday night, the Bulls will look to push the series to 2-0 by defending the United Center vs. the Bucks yet again. The spotlight is going to be on Derrick Rose once again. Rose was tremendous in Game 1, finishing with 23...
