Bucks vs. Bulls Final Score: Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler wear down punchless Bucks

Derrick Rose figured out how to shoot, the Bucks did not, and the end result was about what you'd expect. Well at least the first quarter was entertaining, eh? The Bucks' return to the playoffs proved to be a losing one on Saturday night in Chicago, as a competitive start gave way to a punchless finish in a 103-91 loss to the Bulls. Derrick Rose (23 pts/7ast) and Jimmy Butler (25 pts/6 ast) punished the Bucks inside and out, while the Bucks had precisely no one punishing the Bulls outside and only John Henson doing anything of consequence inside. Which reminds us: If John Henson (5/6 fg, 12...

Bulls vs. Bucks final score: Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler lead Chicago to easy 103-91 victory

So, um, D-Rose looked pretty good. Derrick Rose didn't get off to the best start in his first playoff game since 2012, but he turned it up as the game went along, and he even started knocking down three-point shots in the third quarter. Rose finished with 23 points on 9-of-16 shooting, and he also added seven assists in a 103-91 Bulls victory. Jimmy Butler led the way with 25 points, shooting 8-of-14 from the field and also dropping six assists. The Rose-Butler duo was stupendous pretty much all game, and the Bucks proved no match for them. The Bulls' defense was questionable at times, but...

Butler: Bulls not focused on seed, just wins

TORONTO -- The Chicago Bulls don't have the best record in the league, but they might lead the NBA in confidence. Despite all the ups and downs they've dealt with on and off the floor this season, the Bulls believe they can knock off anybody. That confidence was on display in a 116-103 win over the Raptors on Wednesday as the Bulls outscored Toronto 39-21 in the fourth quarter. "We don't play to lose that's for sure," Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler said.

Jimmy Butler slated to return against Hornets tonight

[Thanks to Jeff for today's game preview -yfbb] Just as I was starting to put pen to paper (or in actuality, fingers to keyboard) to prepare the game preview for the Bulls’ 2nd game against the Charlotte Hornets in 10 days, news came through the pipeline that Jimmy Butler will be making his much awaited, and needed return, from an elbow sprain that has kept him out of the team’s last 11 games. The Bulls have gone 5-6 during this period. Before I get to Butler, there are a couple of points to address. To say the Bulls loss on Saturday night in Detroit could have been predicted, is too...

Butler expected to play vs. Hornets

CHICAGO -- Jimmy Butler went through all of Monday's shootaround and is expected to make his return Monday night against the Charlotte Hornets after missing the last three weeks because of a left elbow injury. Butler, who injured the elbow in a March 1 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, was expected to be out 3-6 weeks after an MRI confirmed the ligament sprain. But the All-Star swingman has been making good progress in his rehab and Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau is hopeful that Butler will be able to play against the Hornets.
