Hinrich scores 26 points, Bulls beat Hornets

CHICAGO – The Chicago Bulls' closer is almost back at full speed.

Derrick Rose takes next step in Bulls win

CHICAGO -- Taj Gibson spoke for the entire Bulls' organization Sunday night when he described what it was like to have Derrick Rose back on the floor to close out games as he did in a win over the Charlotte Hornets. "It's a dope feeling," Gibson said. "We know who's going to take the shot. Either Pau [Gasol], Derrick. We got Joakim [Noah] making solid plays. We got guys that's back in the rotation, and even with Derrick, he's stepping in and taking that strong midrange when he needs to take it, and it showed tonight.

Derrick Rose has best preseason game, Hinrich scores 26 as Bulls top Hornets

It was nice of Derrick Rose to finally join his teammates in the fourth quarter of an exhibition game. Just in time to help teammate Kirk Hinrich put on a show. Thanks to Hinrich’s game-high 26 points, the Bulls held off Charlotte, 101-96, at the United Center on Sunday night, improving their preseason record to 4-2. More importantly, the paranoia surrounding the Rose-minutes-watch can ease up a bit. It was in the comeback win over Atlanta on Thursday, in which...

Butler out for remainder of game

CHICAGO -- Jimmy Butler will miss the rest of Sunday night's preseason game against the Charlotte Hornets after he injured his left thumb. The injury, dubbed a sprained thumb by the Bulls, occurred with about five minutes left in the first quarter, when Butler went for a steal. He stayed in the game at the time but was taken out toward the end of the first quarter and never returned. Butler, who is having the best preseason stretch of his career, has been the Bulls' most consistent all-around player since training camp opened.

Halftime Update: Tannehill, Dolphins lead sleeping Bears

Kickoff time was at noon, but the Bears missed the memo. After crowing all week about wanting to finally win a home game, the Bears have yet to show up, trailing the Dolphins, 14-0, at halftime. Jay Cutler has completed 8-of-12 passes for only 50 yards and one interception, while Matt Forte leads has 11 rushing yards on only two tries. The Bears have totaled two first downs, the Dolphins 14. Miami has 155 more total yards than the Bears’ 54. The Dolphins’ first...

Thibs ready to shift into regular-season mode

CHICAGO -- By coach Tom Thibodeau’s timetable, the last of the Chicago Bulls' preseason games will take place Sunday night at the United Center against the Charlotte Hornets. Sure, two more unofficial games remain before the team’s season opener at New York on Oct. 29, but Thibodeau will treat Monday’s contest at Cleveland and Friday’s tilt against Minnesota as if it were the real thing. “The last two, you sort of narrow it down to get more toward your rotation,” Thibodeau said after shootaround Sunday morning.

Healthy Bulls await official starting five

CHICAGO – The run of relative good health has continued for the Chicago Bulls, despite coach Tom Thibodeau’s intense preseason regimen. The latest scare came in practice Saturday when forward Nikola Mirotic took a finger to the eye, but he participated in shootaround Sunday and is expected to play his full complement of minutes in Sunday night's matchup with the Charlotte Hornets. Forward Mike Dunleavy twice has been slowed by a sore knee and did not play Thursday, but Thibodeau did not list the veteran among the ailing Sunday morning.

Bulls’ Pau Gasol has closing role on his mind

Former Bulls forward Carlos Boozer should feel fortunate that he never has been teammates with Pau Gasol. The truth would have hurt. The veteran forward was asked Saturday if he ever has played for a coach who sat him in the fourth quarter of games, and he was brutally honest. “No, no, that’s not a good sign when you’re put in that position because the coach doesn’t rely on you to deliver in those minutes,’’ Gasol said. “So basically he doesn’t trust...

Bulls' closer role important to Gasol

CHICAGO -- Pau Gasol would take it personally if he wasn’t on the floor to close out games for the Chicago Bulls. “That’s not a good sign,” Gasol said after practice Saturday. “That’s not a good sign when you’re put in that position because a coach doesn’t rely on you to deliver in those minutes. So, basically he doesn't trust you. He trusts somebody else to do that job. So, it’s not a good sign for you.
