Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau preaches 48 minutes of effort to his team. He didn't quite get that against the Mavericks on Wednesday night, but it was much better than the last time out.
Luol Deng had 22 points and six rebounds as Chicago cruised to a 101-78 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.
Five players scored at least 11 points to help the Bulls (7-7) beat the Mavericks for the fourth straight time. Chicago recovered from a 93-92 loss to Milwaukee on Monday, in which it blew a 27-point third-quarter lead, largely due to the proficiency of its reserves.
''The bench was great,'' Thibodeau said. ''The starters got us out to a good start. We needed everybody.''
Nate Robinson had 14 points and a game-high six assists for Chicago, and fellow reserve Jimmy Butler scored a career-high 13, including 9-of-10 shooting from the free throw line.
''I feel like we're coming together, getting more comfortable out there,'' Butler said. '...

Being that he was a free agent and a close friend of Derrick Rose, OJ Mayo was on Bulls fans radar this offseason. Ultimately, Mayo chose more money with Dallas and that was that. However, he did have some nice words to say about D Rose before being pummeled by the Bulls in Chicago last night:
“We grew up together,” Mayo said. “We started playing each other since we were...
The Dallas Mavericks, it seems as of late, have a problem with the start of games. After suffering such a loss at home against the Los Angeles Lakers, one would have thought that they would not want that type of game to happen to them again anytime soon, right? Well, I sure wouldn’t, but as it looked at the beginning of the game against Philadelphia, they had not had enough humiliation...
NBA players are quite good at starting fads. From their shoes to headbands to finger sleeves to any other accessory you can think of, they make simple things look cool on the court. One trend was the “baller bands” that became much more prominent during the 2000 Sydney Olympics when Team USA had regular rubber bands around their wrists. From there, an invention would...
There is not proof that Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has banned the Power Balance bracelets from his teams locker room because Mark Sanchez once said "PowerBalance keeps me focused and balanced...

The Dallas Mavericks will sign veteran point guard Derek Fisher on Thursday, coach Rick Carlisle announced after a 101-78 loss to Chicago.
Dallas played Wednesday without Darren Collison, who had started 14 of the Mavericks' 15 games at the point, because of a sprained right middle finger sustained in Tuesday's loss to Philadelphia. Third-year guard Dominique Jones started...

1: Brand, Collison come off the bench, fails to jump start Dallas
Dallas does not have Dirk Nowitzki, and so any thoughts of making final statements or analysis of the team is likely incomplete. O.J. Mayo has been thrust into a starring role for the Mavericks and has generally done...
The Mavericks started Dominique Jones at point guard instead of Darren Collison in their previous game.
With the Dallas Mavericks needing some point guard depth, they turned to a veteran. Derek Fisher and the Mavericks have agreed to a one-year deal, and Fisher will officially make his return to the NBA. He has not played since finishing up the 2011-12 season with the Oklahoma City Thunder. According to Brian Windhorst and Marc Stein of ESPN Dallas, Fisher could step in and fill...
