Noah leaves Cleveland media hanging

Posted by GameSetMatch on 19th April 2010

A day after making derogatory comments about the city of Cleveland, Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah did not address reporters following a morning shootaround in advance of Monday night’s Game 2 against the Cavaliers.

Noah told reporters on Sunday that he was not enjoying his time in Cleveland. When asked by a reporter whether the boos he endured during a 96-83 Game 1 loss on Saturday bothered him, he responded: “What? That Cleveland sucks?”

On Monday, a large horde of reporters waited for Noah off to the side of the Quicken Loans Arena court. After initially appearing to walk toward the group, Noah was escorted to the visitor’s tunnel by a Bulls spokesperson. It was believed that he had to tape a segment for the TNT telecast and would be back out in 10 minutes.

But soon after another Bulls spokesperson came out and said Noah would not be address the media. Several Cleveland media members expressed displeasure.

Bulls keep up the fight

Posted by GameSetMatch on 14th April 2010

After six months and 81 games, this roller coaster of a season for the Bulls comes down to the regular- season finale tonight in Charlotte.

A win will send them to the playoffs for the second consecutive year and the fifth time in six years. A loss could send them into the offseason.

The Bulls set up the drama with an impressive finish in a 101-93 victory Tuesday over the Boston Celtics at the United Center.

Derrick Rose led the way with a career-high 39 points on 15-for-22 shooting, and Kirk Hinrich added a season-high 30 points on 11-for-20 shooting, including 4-for-7 from three-point range.

”Derrick just kept attacking, and Kirk hit some big shots down the stretch,” coach Vinny Del Negro said. ”[Hinrich] stepped up big for us, and our energy was fantastic. Everyone contributed.”

Del Negro: Report on his fate untrue

Posted by GameSetMatch on 29th December 2009

Chicago Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro said an ESPN.com report that a decision to fire him already has been made is “totally not accurate.”

Citing sources with knowledge of the Bulls’ thinking, Chris Broussard of ESPN The Magazine reported on Sunday night that a decision has been made and the Bulls are just waiting to find Del Negro’s replacement.

The coach said he and Bulls management are on the same page, and Del Negro told reporters to ask vice president of basketball operations John Paxson or general manager Gar Forman about the situation. Forman declined to speak to reporters after practice Monday.

Phone messages left for Paxson and Forman were not returned on Sunday, but in text messages to ESPN The Magazine on Sunday night, Paxson neither confirmed nor denied the report.

“It’s just funny to me,” Del Negro said. “There’s really nothing to say. You have all these people that have rumors, and everyone has their sources. It’s just not accurate.

Bulls need quick turnaround with familiar rivals on schedule

Posted by GameSetMatch on 30th November 2009

History has shown that it’s never too late for the Bulls to turn things around.

In 2004-05, they started 2-13 and recovered to win 47 games. Last year, they won 12 of their last 16 to finish with a .500 record.

So to call the coming week a critical stretch for the Bulls would be an overstatement. But it would help if they could end a run of four straight lopsided losses before the team’s chemistry and confidence suffer lasting harm.

Good start on Western road trip for Bulls

Posted by GameSetMatch on 19th November 2009

Bigger challenges await them down the road, but the Bulls began their five-game Western trip with an impressive and mostly comfortable — save for a few minutes in the fourth quarter — 101-87 victory over the Sacramento Kings late Tuesday.


“That fourth quarter wasn’t real pretty, but fortunately we got some stops when we needed to and came out with the victory,” Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro said. “A good start to a long trip.”

This was the first meeting of the teams since that big trade last February, so it was only fitting that guard John Salmons, the key to the deal from the Bulls’ perspective, busted out of his recent shooting funk to led the team with 23 points on 9-for-18 shooting.

Bulls use balanced attack to stop Spurs

Posted by GameSetMatch on 30th October 2009

Luol Deng scored 17 points and added nine rebounds as the Chicago Bulls used a balanced scoring attack to beat the San Antonio Spurs 92-85 in their season-opening game on Thursday.

Derrick Rose finished with 13 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Bulls, who lost to the Boston Celtics in a hard-fought seven-game first round playoff series last year.

Tyrus Thomas also scored 13 points, while Kirk Hinrich added 14 points off the bench. Joakim Noah had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Bulls.

Tim Duncan scored a game-high 28 points and 16 rebounds for the Spurs who had only one other player in double figures. Manu Ginobili scored 12 points and had six rebounds for San Antonio, who opened the season Wednesday with a victory over New Orleans.

Restless Derrick Rose ready for Act 2 with Bulls

Posted by GameSetMatch on 23rd October 2009

Whether he was shooting a video game commercial with Kobe Bryant or coaching teens in China with Dwight Howard, Derrick Rose had no trouble finding things to do during the offseason.

He wound up with some unwelcome downtime the past few weeks. The reigning Rookie of the Year for the Chicago Bulls was sidelined most of the preseason by an inflamed tendon behind his right ankle.

So as the curtain rises on the second act of a promising NBA career, Rose is just a little restless.

“It’s hard knowing that I want to play against some of the good players that are out there, be with my team,” Rose said. “We’ve got so many new players on the team. They’re young. They’re still trying to learn. We just need to hurry up and jell quick because we can make it far in the season.”

Bulls injury updates: Rose, Thomas still day-to-day

Posted by GameSetMatch on 13th October 2009

Because the injuries to Derrick Rose and Tyrus Thomas have lingered longer than initially expected, everyone — reporters, coaches and players — is finding new ways to ask and answer the same questions on a daily basis.



After Monday’s practice at the Berto Center, coach Vinny Del Negro was asked if Thomas ”did anything today.”

”He didn’t practice,” Del Negro said. ”He had breakfast and did a few other things.”

Rim shot, please.

Both players were injured in the Bulls’ first preseason game on Oct. 2 and were listed as day-to-day. Neither is expected to play tonight when the Bulls face the Milwaukee Bucks at the United Center.

With more than two weeks to go before the regular-season opener Oct.29 against the San Antonio Spurs at the United Center, there’s no sense of urgency to get both players back on the court just yet — but don’t try convincing Rose of that.
