  • Bulls’ Gibson still all about team Oct 1, 2014 9:10 PM
    If Carmelo Anthony chose to sign with the Bulls this summer, Taj Gibson would most likely be the team's starting power forward. Instead, the Bulls added Pau Gasol, who will almost certainly be the starter. Gibson was in no mood to complain about his role, however, after Wednesday's practice.

     
  • Bulls’ rookies know playing time won’t come easy Sep 30, 2014 9:29 PM
    Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau supplied a grim outlook on Tuesday -- no team since the 1975 Warriors has won an NBA title with two rookies in the playing rotation. The Bulls can either buck that trend behind Doug McDermott and Nikola Mirotic or sit them down, which isn't likely.

  • Rose getting ever closer to being back for Bulls Sep 9, 2014 9:01 PM
    Derrick Rose took a step in the right direction in Tuesday's Team USA win over Slovenia, finishing with 12 points and 5 rebounds. He hadn't played well in the first six games of the tournament, but that's hardly cause for concern.

     
  • U.S. basketball wraps up No. 1 seed with win over Dominican Republic Sep 4, 2014 1:01 AM
    They were expected to be in Barcelona. They hope to finish their trip in Madrid. First, they had to take care of Bilbao. The Americans wrapped up the No. 1 seed in their group Wednesday, improving to 4-0 at the Basketball World Cup with a 106-71 victory over the Dominican Republic. Kenneth Faried, whose shooting percentage dropped after he missed three shots, scored 16 points for the U.S. DeMarcus Cousins came off the bench and added 13 points on 5-of-5 shooting. The Americans will finish Group C play in Bilbao on Thursday against Ukraine — when U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski will coach against longtime friend and former NBA coach Mike Fratello — before playing their round of 16 game Saturday night in Barcelona against the fourth-place team from Group D, which is still to be determined. A few wins there and they would play for gold in Madrid, but nobody was looking past step one. “Obviously we have to take care of here. Nothing’s given,” forward Rudy Gay said. “We’ve worked hard, we’ve been tested and we’ve overcome that, and also got some pretty big wins.” The Americans surpassed 100 points for the second time in the tournament — and they were “held” to 98 points in their other two games. Even after having to overcome a halftime deficit in one game, they came in averaging a tournament-best 103.3 points and were winning by 35.7 per game. All 12 players scored, and the ones who weren’t in the game were up cheering when back-of-the-bench centers Mason Plumlee and Andre Drummond hooked up on an alley-oop in the final minutes. “I believe everybody felt pretty good how they played tonight,” Cousins said. “That’s what we’re going to need to continue this path.” The Americans led by only three points after one quarter but had no trouble extending that as the game went on, as the Dominicans’ willingness to push the pace simply played into the Americans’ hands. Faried made 8 of 11 shots, a 73-percent clip that actually lowered his percentage for the tournament to 78.4 percent after the Denver forward came into the game hitting 81 percent. Victor Liz scored 15 points for the Dominican Republic (2-2), which will face Turkey on Thursday, still in position to advance. The Dominicans played without Houston Rockets forward Francisco Garcia, who entered the day’s play tied for fourth in the tournament with 21 points per game. He appeared to turn an ankle late in the Dominicans’ victory over Finland on Tuesday, and though he finished the game, was walking gingerly Wednesday as he went to the bench after his teammates had come out to warm up. “They were short-handed. We knew that,” Krzyzewski said. “I thought we did a good job tonight.” The Americans ended up winning nearly as easily as their 105-62 exhibition victory on Aug. 20 in New York, though the Dominicans hung with them a little longer than that night. The U.S. lead was just 25-22 as the Dominicans attacked fearlessly but didn’t have any answer for the Americans’ bigs. Faried had three straight baskets, a couple of them powerful dunks, and Anthony Davis knocked down a jumper to turn a seven-point lead into a 44-29 cushion. Gay got the final four points of the half, making a pair of free throws after he was clobbered intentionally on a breakaway by Edward Santana, then banking in a jumper that make it 56-41. A 25-point third quarter was followed by 25 more in the fourth, capped by a series of dunks down the stretch. DeMar DeRozan finished with 11 points, and Davis and James Harden each had 10 as the U.S. shot 56 percent. Cousins said the Americans were a little sluggish early and still have to start their games better, but nobody was complaining about the finish. “We felt we were going to win and how you play overall, I thought everyone left the court feeling good about how they played,” Krzyzewski said.

     
  • Rose held to 2 points in U.S. win Aug 31, 2014 5:17 PM
    BILBAO, Spain — Kenneth Faried scored 22 points, Anthony Davis all of his 19 in the second half, and the U.S. rebounded from a rare deficit at halftime to beat Turkey 98-77 on Sunday in the Basketball World Cup. A night after beating Finland by 59 in its biggest rout ever while using NBA players in the former world championship, the Americans couldn’t take control against Turkey until early in the fourth quarter. They trailed 40-35 at halftime and Turkey led by six early in the third before the Americans could finally get the game into the quicker tempo they prefer and pull away to win the rematch of the 2010 gold-medal game in Istanbul. The Bulls’ Derrick Rose showed his timing still isn’t back after a nearly two-year absence, missing both shots, turning it over twice and not getting an assist. Rose didn’t get back into the game until the U.S. had opened the big fourth-quarter lead. He finished with 2 points. It was a much tougher game than expected after the Americans hammered Finland 114-55 while Turkey was being outplayed for most of its opener by New Zealand before pulling out the victory. James Harden added 14 points for the U.S. It was tied at 59 with 3:10 left in the third before the Americans closed the period with a 7-1 burst to lead 66-60 after Faried’s basket. The U.S. then ran off 10 in a row to open the fourth and open a 76-60 cushion. The Americans haven’t lost since the semifinals of the 2006 world championship and outside of their victories over Spain in the last two Olympic gold-medal games, haven’t been in danger much since then. But they needed a long time to start looking like the team that is so considered the tournament favorite by so many. It was 16-all after one, and Turkey controlled the tempo in the second quarter, getting to the foul line against a U.S. team that showed moments of frustration with the pace and some calls that went against them. Baris Hersek and Emir Preldzic made consecutive 3-pointers late in the half to give Turkey a 38-32 lead, and it was 40-35 when the teams went to the locker room. Unable to force the turnovers or missed shots to get their transition game going, the Americans looked ordinary in the halfcourt. Davis, who scored 17 points in the opener and had been the Americans’ best player this summer, was scoreless with one rebounds in the half, playing just 10 ½ minutes while picking up two fouls. The Americans are off Monday before continuing pool play Tuesday against winless New Zealand.

     
  • U.S. beat Slovenia in basketball exhibition, Rose has 3 points Aug 26, 2014 7:23 PM
    Mike Krzyzewski’s big men had barely finished pushing around Slovenia when he was asked how they would match up with Spain’s imposing frontcourt. “I’m not going to compare. I haven’t seen Spain play,” Krzyzewski said. “If we play Spain, it’s a long way away. So I’m just concentrating on U.S. and trying to get better.”

     
  • One final hurdle for Rose to clear Aug 22, 2014 11:49 PM
    Derrick Rose returned to action for Team USA in a 112-86 win over Puerto Rico on Friday in New York. Barring a relapse in knee soreness, he appears a lock to make the final roster for the FIBA World Cup, which begins Aug. 30.

     
  • Rose sits out US exhibition vs Dominican Republic Aug 20, 2014 6:30 PM
    Derrick Rose is sitting out the U.S. national’s team exhibition game against the Dominican Republic on Wednesday night, with coach Mike Krzyzewski saying he wants to look at other guards. Rose has sat out the last two practices as he works his way back into shape after sitting out most of the last two seasons, though there has been no indication from the Chicago Bulls star or U.S. officials that he is hurting. Rose said after Tuesday’s practice he just wanted extra rest.
