TELANDER: First the Blackhawks, now the Bulls let one slip away

OK, Chicago, what’s the deal in the postseason? The Blackhawks just gagged away two games. And now the Bulls choked on their opener against the Washington Wizards, like it was an Easter egg they forgot to peel. Wizards are magicians, but the Bulls took a 13-point third-quarter lead and made it disappear in a 102-93 loss. It was just so odd, that period when the Bulls had the Wizards on the run. They seemed to get cocky for a couple of minutes, trying to run wild...

Wizards’ Nene hard for Bulls to handle

Exactly eight weeks after his last start, the Washington Wizards’ Nene drove from the left wing to the rim for a dunk, with the Bulls’ Carlos Boozer doing little to stop him. It was 27 seconds into Game 1 of the Bulls’ first-round playoff series Sunday against the Wizards at the United Center, but it was telling. A layup, a driving layup and a jumper later, Nene jogged to the bench for the first time, having scored eight points in six minutes. He couldn’t...

Wiz Insider: Wizards vs Bulls: The matchups

Who’s ready? (Photo by Jared Wickerham/) The Wizards and Chicago Bulls came together for the first time in Rio de Janeiro in late October, practicing in the same tiny, musty gymnasium with fluffy nets and a creaky court. The Bulls were considered a championship contender when they arrived in Brazil, emboldened by the return of Derrick Rose, who missed the previous season with a torn ACL in his left knee. The Wizards were just hoping to make the playoffs after missing out the previous five seasons. After a week of practice, the two teams played an exhibition, the first NBA game in South...

Bulls, Wizards ready for Game 1

Underdog Wizards aren’t intimidated by Bulls

It’s a nice badge to carry into the playoffs: The team no one wants to play. It even has a tinge of intimidation to it, that is, if the Bulls were actually facing a team that was susceptible to intimidation. But they aren’t. The Washington Wizards have little to lose, especially when all they’ve been hearing is they’re destined for elimination by next week. “Why would they pick us?’’ Wizards center Marcin Gortat told the Washington Post on Friday when...
