Jimmy Butler Scores Career High in Bulls Win

Once the injury report was released, I mentally prepared myself for a game with no redeeming qualities. A reportedly vomiting Derrick Rose snapped his streak of games played at 11 and Taj Gibson rested his sprained ankle. Meanwhile, the Knicks were without their “Big 3(?)” of J.R.

Atlanta 93, Bulls 86, Kirk 0

Let's get something out of the way off the bat - no logical fan is going to care that we lost a December road game against a good team on a back-to-back. Especially after two quality wins against good teams. Wrong. All anyone seems to want to talk about is our 48 minutes of point [...]

Game 2: Knicks 81, Bulls 82 (1-1)
