Can Gasol sustain this heavy workload?

PHILADELPHIA -- Pau Gasol is tired. He just played 43 minutes in a 104-95 overtime win over the Philadelphia 76ers, the end of a five-games-in-seven-days stretch, in the 66th game of the Chicago Bulls' season. And he looks like he could use a long nap. Gasol is in the midst of a monster season -- he was named as a starter in the All-Star Game for the first time in his career and is averaging 18.2 points and a career-best 12.2 rebounds. He set a new career high on Wednesday night, racking up his 44th double-double of the season after scoring 27 points and grabbing 16 rebounds against the...

Bulls vs. Grizzlies final score: Gasol on Gasol crime hands Bulls 3rd straight loss

After what was an ugly, yet evenly-matched first half between the Chicago Bulls and Memphis Grizzlies, the 2nd half saw alternating runs by both teams, but the final one going to the Grizzlies for a 101-91 win. Pau Gasol started the game strong, seemingly energized facing his younger brother (and fellow All-Star) Marc, but only had 4 points after halftime while getting worked on the defensive end. Though Marc Gasol did alright on post-ups, it was when he was the screen-setter and out in space where they really attacked Pau. It was a story we've seen a lot of this season, though maybe due...

Margin of error too thin for Bulls

SAN ANTONIO -- Pau Gasol summed up the Chicago Bulls' 116-105 loss to the San Antonio Spurs very well. "If you turn the ball over 24 times, I think, against a very good team like they are, I don't think there's a way you can win it," The Bulls only turned the ball over 22 times on Sunday, but it's easy to understand why Gasol mixed up the numbers. They didn't value possessions the way they should have and they didn't execute the way they needed to against a championship team playing its best basketball of the season.

Bulls vs. Timberwolves final score: Short-handed Bulls grind out 96-89 victory behind Jimmy Butler

Butler scored 28 points and helped the short-handed Bulls pull out a hard-fought win over Minnesota. On a down note, Taj Gibson hurt his ankle again. With Derrick Rose on the shelf for the time being and Pau Gasol sick, the Bulls were already short-handed as is heading into their game against the Timberwolves on Friday night. Things got even worse in the first quarter when Taj Gibson exited the game with, you guessed it, another ankle injury. What followed was a performance reminiscent of the past few years, a performance featuring a lot of bricks, a lot of offensive rebounds and just...

Joakim Noah returns to 'point center' role

CHICAGO -- Joakim Noah was back in his comfort zone on Friday night. Without Derrick Rose (knee), Pau Gasol (illness) and Taj Gibson going down with an ankle injury after just nine minutes, the remaining Bulls had to pull together and do a little more. For Noah, that meant he was back in a familiar role as a "point center," a role he played extremely well over the last two years without Rose on the floor. With Noah back at the high post, he looked more confident on the floor racking up 11 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists in a 96-89 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Timberwolves at Bulls Game Thread

The Wolves are in Chicago tonight to take on the Bulls, who will be without both Derrick Rose and Pau Gasol. Wolves at Bulls7:00 pm CSTFS North The Chicago Bulls host the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight without two of their most important players, as Derrick Rose is out following meniscus surgery and Pau Gasol is ill. Fortunately for the 36-22 Bulls, Gasol shouldn't miss more than tonight's game, but it certainly gives the Wolves a better chance at grabbing a rare road win. The Bulls still do a good job at limiting opponents' good looks while not fouling, a trademark of Tom Thibodeau's...

Rose return would help exorcise bad mojo

CHICAGO -- On my way into the United Center for Gar Forman’s "State of the Derrick Rose" press conference, I saw Pau Gasol walking to his white Range Rover. Given that the Chicago Bulls' shoot-around for Friday’s game against Minnesota was just beginning, it seemed like an ominous sign. But as it turned out, Gasol is just sick and Rose’s knee is in better shape than we thought after seeing Tuesday night’s apocalyptic press release.
