PHOENIX – Chicago's Carlos Boozer had 28 points while Luol Deng and Joakim Noah added 21 each as the Bulls blew an 18-point lead in the third quarter but recovered to score on their first five possessions of overtime to beat the Phoenix Suns 112-106 Wednesday night. Luis Scola had 24 points and 13 rebounds before fouling out early in overtime and Sebastian Telfair added 17 off the bench including three 3-pointers for the Suns, who rallied from 26 points down to beat Cleveland here five days ago but couldn't make it all the way back this time. Down 79-61 with three minutes left in the third quarter, the Suns roared back to tie the game twice, the last time on PJ Tucker's three-footer with 9.4 seconds to even the score at 100. Hamilton had a chance to win it for the Bulls but had his shot blocked by Shannon Brown and both teams went to overtime for the first time this year -- and for the Suns, the first time since April 11 of 2011 (75 games). But the Bulls gained a s...

It has been a while since we heard about Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose and his road to recovery after suffering a horrific left knee injury during last season's playoffs. He has been documenting his recovery through some adidas ads and now it seems he has begun to cut on his surgically repaired knee which should be seen as a huge step in the right direction for him and the...
PHOENIX -- This year's rewritten Phoenix Suns script seems to be offering considerably more than a changing of the point guard.
Evidence of the differences is everywhere.
There's a new offensive structure (which wasn't working very well), a fresh paint job for the U.S. Airways Center floor and nine players who worked somewhere else last season.
One additional -- and...
Nate Robinson is short (for the NBA) but still gets most of his publicity for big dunks above the rim. On Wednesday night, however, it was some lower-altitude moves that have fans marveling at Robinson’s skills once again. With under three minutes left in the Bulls’ game against the Suns, Robinson received a pass near the left baseline and pump faked. Sebastian Telfair, who was...
This video was too great not to share. Former Celtic Nate Robinson makes use of his 5'8" frame and goes through Sebastian Telfair's legs before making a lay-up. Hilarious.

SMU coach Larry Brown has signed three players to national letters of intent to be part of the Mustangs' debut in the Big East Conference next season.
The signing class Wednesday included a pair of standout high school players from the Chicago area, 6-foot-4 guard Sterling Brown and 6-8 forward Ben Moore, along with 6-11 junior college forward Yanick Moreira.
Brown, the Hall...
We have seen numerous dribbles between defenders, but it is not that often that we see an entire person go under a defender’s legs. On Wednesday night when the Bulls took on the Suns Nate Robinson used his 5′ 9″ height to his advantage. Nate made a great ball fake which Sebastian Telfair fell for, Telfair jumped to block the shots, but Nate hit the brakes and Telfair flew...
The Celtics were cold in the 4th quarter. If they weren’t dunking the ball, that ball wasn’t going through the hoop.
Lucky for the Celtics, pulled off two plays that got them the high-percentage shots they needed at crucial times. Actually… it was the same play… just run on opposite sides of the floor.
Here’s the first one:
The play really happens at the :13 mark with...
PHOENIX (AP) -- Carlos Boozer had 28 points and 14 rebounds to help the Chicago Bulls outlast the Phoenix Suns 112-106 in overtime Wednesday night.
Boozer, who scored 31 against Phoenix in the previous meeting last season, was a force at power forward again. He made 11 of 20 shots and had his way inside as the Bulls scored 50 points in the paint. Luol Deng added 21 points and center...
After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.
Offense: 20 points on a very efficient 10-16 shooting. He hit 5 of 6 shots at the rim, and 5 of 8 from everywhere else inside the 3-point line. A few of his turnovers were sloppy, but a few of his passes were spectacular.
Defense: He played the passing lanes...
