Bulls vs. Hawks video highlights: Al Horford goes off

I could do without the clips of uncontested defensive rebounds, but the video above of Al Horford's play last night does also serve as a look at slowness of the Bulls defense. And yes, it's pretty exclusively on Pau Gasol*. Some of Horford's one-on-one attempts you could probably live with, but too often the jumpers are left wide-open (and by my recollection, on several missed attempts as well), and the transition defense is tough to watch. Gasol did play nearly 40 minutes the night after he played over 36, which is pretty crazy, so we can cut him somewhat of a break. But the Bulls really...

Bulls vs. Hawks final score: Tired and old legs fail in Atlanta

So, the Hawks are pretty good. And worse, a bad matchup for the Bulls, especially a unit without Joakim Noah. Atlanta plays small and stretches the floor with their big-man tandem of Al Horford and Paul Millsap, and time and time again the Bulls bigs slow to rotate and gave them way too much space. Horford was missing quite a few wide open midrange jumpers, but ultimately was the Hawks leading scorer with 21 points as the Hawks won this game 93-86. This was just not the kind of game for Pau Gasol to thrive. He did have another double-double, but had 15 shots to get his 13 points, and I...

Chicago Bulls vs. Portland Trailblazers game preview, lineups: Noah out again

[Thanks to Alex for today's game preview. Reminder it's an unusually early (6pm) start due to the ESPN telecast. Hey, that means no Neil&Stacey either! -yfbb] So, in addition to JoNo and Dougie McBuckets being ruled out in surprisingly un-Thibs-like fashion, which is to say, a full day in advance of the game, it looks like two other Bulls are questionable for tip-off tonight after being held out of practice yesterday. Pau Gasol apparently took a hard elbow to the chest from Brooklyn's Sergay Karasev (who got the starting nod ahead of Mirza Teletovic in the Bulls' awesome drubbing of the...

This week in the Bulls: One month with Pau Gasol

Thinking big picture with the Bulls' 34-year-old big man. This Week in the Bulls: Derrick Rose wore an "I Can't Breathe" shirt and every other basketball player followed his lead; the Bulls got run of the gym by the Warriors, just like everyone else; Chicago out-scored the Nets 54-29 in the second half to blowout Brooklyn; Taj Gibson came back but Doug McDermott went out. We need to talk about Pau Gasol. Gasol has been more productive than even the most optimistic fans would have thought when the Bulls quickly pivoted from Carmelo Anthony to make him Plan B in free agency. Though 18 games,...

Pau Gasol making presence felt in Chicago

CHICAGO -- Pau Gasol admittedly didn't think he'd be able to put up these kinds of numbers this quickly for the Chicago Bulls. But now that he is, now that he appears to have turned back the clock, he wants to make sure the world has an accurate count on what he has been responsible for each game. When asked after Thursday's practice if he expected to be a 20-point, 10-rebound player at this stage of his career, Gasol was quick with a retort. "20 and 12," Gasol said.

Noah, Gasol, two others held from practice

CHICAGO -- Bulls big men Pau Gasol (shoulder/chest) and Joakim Noah (knee/ankle), along with second-year swingman Tony Snell (personal reasons) and rookie Doug McDermott (knee), did not practice on Thursday. Gasol, who said he took a shot to the chest from Brooklyn Nets guard Sergey Karasev in Wednesday night's win, expects to play on Friday night against the Portland Trail Blazers. Noah's status remains unclear. He missed Wednesday's game because of ongoing problems with his knee and ankle.

Two of a kind: Gasols earn mantle as NBA’s big bros

Two of a kind: Gasols earn mantle as NBA’s big bros

There are Bernard and Albert King, Dominique and Gerald Wilkins and Gus and Ray Williams among several others of note, but, on this December day, allow us to go ahead and declare Pau and Marc Gasol the best brothers to ever grace the NBA.But while you may grant they’ve conquered the league, there’s another battle still to be decided. The Spaniards’ own. And even at age 34 and in his 14th NBA season, Pau Gasol is not ready to relinquish the Best in Family designation to the Memphis center.

Gasol will play against Spurs

Memphis big man Marc Gasol is dealing with a right knee injury, but plans to play through it tonight against the Spurs.

Gasol scores 19, Bulls defeat Hornets

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Pau Gasol addressed his new Chicago Bulls teammates following their double-overtime loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night.

Pau Gasol fitting right in with tough Bulls

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Tom Thibodeau doesn't love soft players. He doesn't have respect for guys who go through the motions and don't give everything they have to the team. That's why, after just one month of the season, it's so interesting to hear Thibodeau speak about Pau Gasol after games. Fairly or unfairly, Gasol developed a "soft" tag over various points in his career. Thibodeau, who detests the idea of one of his players being "soft," knows how important Gasol has been to the development of a team that appears destined for championship contention later this season if it can stay...
