Bulls vs. Bucks Recap: Bulls Blown Out at Home 95-69 to Fall Back to .500

The Bulls lost to the Bucks for the second time in as many days thanks to terrible shooting and even worse coaching. This Bulls team continues to look more and more like the enigmatic team from last season with every passing game. Tonight was the perfect example of that, as Chicago fell to the Milwaukee Bucks 95-69 for the second day in a row. Fans may recall that this isn’t even the only time this calendar year that the Bulls…

It’s Star Wars night for Bulls-Bucks Episode II

It’s Star Wars night for Bulls-Bucks Episode II

Tonight the Bulls play the Milwaukee Bucks. You may remember them from such games as “that time Pau Gasol was good” and “yesterday”. The Bulls were thoroughly outplayed last night, with a new Niko and Canaan-less bench rotation making little difference as has already been documented on this website. As a result of last night’s shellacking, the Bulls have fallen to 13-12 in games decided by points. Not gonna get it done with those numbers! The Bulls come in very…

Can blame both roster construction and coaching in the Bulls latest loss to the Bucks

Can blame both roster construction and coaching in the Bulls latest loss to the Bucks

is the Bulls bench this inherently bad or more misused? Chicago’s flaws from both a roster construction standpoint as well as a coaching standpoint are coming to full fruition over the past couple of weeks. For many of us this isn’t surprising, more just a matter of time. Aside from a mini-rally in the fourth quarter that was far too late, the Bulls display of basketball against the Milwaukee Bucks was flat out embarrassing. No Sense of Urgency One area…

Bulls vs. Bucks final score: a waxing in Milwaukee

Bulls vs. Bucks final score: a waxing in Milwaukee

bonus: weird rotations! The Bulls were essentially routed in Milwaukee tonight, eventually falling 108-97 to the Bucks in the first leg of their home-and-home. The score is a bit misleading, as the Bulls were down 27 in the first half and entered the 3rd quarter down 22. In what was the first 4th quarter they’ve won in ages, the Bulls did get the deficit down to 8 with 3 minutes remaining on a Jimmy Butler three-pointer, but in the following…

Bucks vs. Bulls game preview: Chicago and Milwaukee play first of back-to-back games

Bucks vs. Bulls game preview: Chicago and Milwaukee play first of back-to-back games

The Bucks and Bulls play both Thursday and Friday night. Up first: a date in Milwaukee. In a weird NBA scheduling glitch, the Chicago Bulls get a back-to-back dosage of the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday and Friday night. Last season, the Bulls faced the same situation against New York, and dropped both games against the 32-50 Knicks on consecutive nights. A double dosage of the Milwaukee Bucks means the Bulls get to face old friend Tony Snell for the first…

A first-hand account of Thibs’s return

A first-hand account of Thibs’s return

what it’s like seeing Thibs stalk the UC sidelines again Jon Greenberg at The Athletic (which, since it’s Christmas time, you might as well buy a subscription for somebody as it’s cheap and useful) had a fun idea for a column: So I bought two seats as close as I could get to the Wolves bench — close enough to see the hurt in Ricky Rubio’s eyes when he caught Thibs’ scorn — and spent more time studying the coach’s…

Another Bulls loss where the crunch-time offense devolved into isolations

Another Bulls loss where the crunch-time offense devolved into isolations

The Bulls struggled to score when the intensity ratcheted up After blowing a 20 point first half lead, the Bulls had plenty of opportunities to right the ship in a close fourth quarter. They began the final period down just three points and held the Timberwolves to a game-low 21 points. Unfortunately, the Bulls managed just 19 points of their own in the fourth quarter and continued a frustrating trend of complete offensive stagnation with the game on the line….

Jimmy Butler bails out the Bulls again (and other Bulls vs. Heat takeaways)

Jimmy Butler bails out the Bulls again (and other Bulls vs. Heat takeaways)

Chicago’s offense bogged down in the 4th quarter again but Jimmy Butler was there to save the day and lead Chicago to victory In the 4th quarter during a closely contested game, the Chicago Bulls offense began to sputter and it looked at the moment that it opened the door for their opponents, the Miami Heat, to steal the game. But Jimmy Butler quickly slammed that door shut by taking over offensively when Chicago needed him the most. Butler scored…
