Bulls vs. Suns final score: Chicago melts down in 4th quarter in 106-97 loss

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ ugly stuff down the stretch The Bulls have been taking care of business against the dregs of the NBA, but Friday gave them an opportunity to get a statement win against the Suns. After an ugly start, it looked like the Bulls were going to make that statement when they went up 16 points early in the second half and then got a Luke Kornet (!!!) surge in the third quarter to hold off a Suns run. Unfortunately, Chicago totally melted down in the fourth quarter, turning the ball over 10 times in the final frame and finally succumbing to a 106-97...

Thaddeus Young’s trade value is shooting to the moon

Photo by Maria Lysaker/NBAE via at least according to NBA execs Thaddeus Young has been a revelation for the Bulls this season after a disappointing 2019-20 campaign under Jim Boylen. Billy Donovan has helped bring out the best in Young by deploying him as a two-way menace who crushes it around the basket and creates open looks for his teammates all over the court with his surprisingly brilliant passing. He’s truly having a magnificent season, averaging 11.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.3 steals while shooting 60.0% from the field. The Bulls’...

Cash Considerations Podcast: Zach LaVine is an All-Star

Jason and Ricky head to Locker Room to give immediate reaction to Zach LaVine earning his first All-Star selection. We talk about LaVine’s career season and how he has leveled up to become a guy who deserves a max contract as a foundational long-term piece of the Chicago Bulls, especially with the team winning more games.

Bulls vs. Rockets final score: Chicago uses 46-point 3rd quarter to surge to 120-100 win

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ a thing of beauty in the third The Rockets entered Monday night’s contest against the Bulls banged up and losers of seven straight, so this was a game Chicago needed to take care of to keep the momentum going. It looked like the Bulls were going to run the home Rockets off their own floor from the opening tip when they went up 22-7, but a lull to close the first quarter and open the second made things interesting ... for a bit. After taking a six-point lead into halftime, Chicago then basically pulled a repeat of the Pelicans third quarter...

Nobody knows when Otto Porter Jr. will be back from his back injury. Chandler Hutchison isn’t playing due to “personal reasons,” and it’s unclear when he’ll be available again. To cap it all off, the Bulls suffered arguably their worst loss of the season in a 105-101 defeat to the lowly Wizards, who were playing without Russell Westbrook for rest purposes.
