Bulls 103, Knicks 97 "That's usually how it looks."

If there's such a thing as a moral loss...this was it. My sister's basement flooded today. She had to call a plumber, which ain't cheap. The plumber noticed something and suggested she contact the fire department. Turned out there was a potentially far more serious problem in her house, one she would never have been aware of if her basement hadn't flooded. The universe unfolds as it must. It doesn't matter if we understand why, or if we like how it unfolds. All we can do is trust it. This is the mindset I bring to the 2015 Knicks. The 2015 Knicks are designed with 2016 and beyond in mind....

Horford scores 21, leads Hawks past Bulls

ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Hawks have shown they can beat up on the NBA's weaker teams.

Numbers point to more aggressive Rose

ATLANTA -- Derrick Rose missed 15 of the 21 shots he took in Monday night's 93-86 loss to the Atlanta Hawks. He turned the ball over six times. He was 0-for-7 from the three-point line and made several poor decisions with the ball in his 31 minutes and 30 seconds of play. But as a tired Bulls squad got dressed and made their way on to the bus awaiting them outside Phillips Arena, Rose and Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau believe Monday's game was a positive development.

Bears GM Phil Emery 'disappointed, upset' by Aaron Kromer situation

Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery said he was very angry last week after offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer admitted to and apologized for disparaging quarterback Jay Cutler to an NFL Network reporter, who anonymously sourced the criticism in a report on Dec. 7.

Bulls' Noah out again vs. Hawks

ATLANTA -- Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah will not play Monday night against the Atlanta Hawks. It is the fourth straight game the All-Star center has missed because of lingering ankle and knee injuries. "He's doing more and more," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said before the game. "I think he's getting close. He's feeling a little bit better. But we're just going to take it day by day, let him continue to work. He's doing more on the floor now, running, jumping, stuff like that.

Heat stifled on offense in home loss to Bulls

Mike Dunleavy scored 22 points and the Chicago Bulls overcame a sloppy start Sunday to beat the offensively inept Miami Heat, 93-75.

Bulls' decision to deal Luol Deng prudent

MIAMI -- Luol Deng made big plays and provided great moments throughout much of his 9 1/2 year tenure with the Chicago Bulls, but it was one of his last decisions as a member of the Bulls that may provide the biggest dividends for the organization in the future. That's because when Deng decided to reject the Bulls' three-year, $30 million extension in January, Bulls GM Gar Forman and executive VP John Paxson made the swift decision to deal Deng -- to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
