Wizards’ Andre Miller schools Bulls

D.J. Augustin grew up watching Andre Miller play in the NBA; the Wizards guard was drafted when the Bulls backup was 11. It would be tempting, too, to say that Augustin did plenty of Miller watching Sunday, when “The Professor” scored eight points in the fourth quarter of the Wizards’ Game 1 victory. As the series with the Wizards continues, it’s fair to wonder if Washington’s guards — be they Miller or, more likely, starters John Wall and Bradley Beal...

Taj Gibson for NBA Sixth Man Award? He thinks Ginobili, Crawford

Backup big man Taj Gibson smiled at the possibility he would bring the Bulls their second individual honor this month. And then he explained why he probably won’t win the Sixth Man of the Year award when it’s announced in the next 10 days or so. Center Joakim Noah was named defensive player of the year Monday. “It would be great,” Gibson said Tuesday before Game 2 against the Wizards. “I don’t even think I’m going to win it, to tell you the truth.”...

Bradley Beal delivers big-time for Wizards

First, Bradley Beal dissed our pizza. Then he hit Chicagoans where it really hurt: the basketball court. One day after the Wizards guard went to Giordano’s and ate the thin crust — He said the “fat pie” piece would keep him in the bathroom for “hours” — Beal all but buried the Bulls’ season. He scored 26 points in the Wizards’ 101-99 overtime win at United Center on Tuesday night, willing his team to, if not a win, then a five-minute extension of...

Joakim Noah calls NBA defensive player honor a ‘team award’

Bulls center Joakim Noah walks to the beat of his own drum, so, of course, he accepted the 2013-14 NBA Defensive Player of the Year award in his own unique style Monday. Noah took time to make fun of the statue and its “weird-looking defensive stance,’’ asked if he actually gets to keep the car that comes with the award and dedicated the honor to his mentor, Tyrone Green, who died last week. He was his usual humble self, calling it a team award, first and...

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau isn’t in the business of pointing fingers.

But that didn’t prevent the Wizards from finding that perceived weak link in the...

NBA playoffs: Wizards guards Wall, Beal eye better shooting efforts in series vs. the Bulls

CHICAGO — John Wall pulled up for a jumper from his favorite spot on the floor, just beyond the right elbow, and the shot was on target — if he had taken it, oh, about three feet back. The ball soared well over the rim and hit the base of the backboard, leaving the Chicago Bulls so stunned that only Marcin Gortat was ready to grab the rebound and convert the putback that secured the Washington Wizards’ 102-93 victory in Game 1 of their first-round, best-of-seven series.
