PHOENIX -- After blowing an 18-point, third-quarter lead and being forced to overtime by the scrappy reserves of the Phoenix Suns, Chicago's veterans knew that the tone for this five-game road trip might be set by the way the Bulls performed in overtime here Friday night. Luol Deng, Richard Hamilton and Joakim Noah combined to erase a dismal fourth quarter by combining to score on Chicago's first five possessions, as the Bulls regained control of the game and rolled to a 112-106 win. Carlos Boozer snapped out of an early-season scoring slump to register a game-high 28 points, while Deng and Noah had 21 each and Hamilton had four of his 15 on back-to-back jumpers as part of a 10-1 run over the first 3:37 of the extra period. "In overtime, it's all about possessions. You only get six or eight possessions in overtime and you have to concentrate on each one to make sure you get a stop and get a score," Hamilton said. "We let our defense slip when we had ...

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...
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.

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.

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...
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...
With the diverse array of remarkable athletes currently playing in the NBA, it’s an extremely common occurrence to see or hear about players rising up over the defense to finish a dunk or a layup. Sometimes, a guy will even leap right over a defender’s head, as LeBron James did to John Lucas III just last season. Just how frequently, though, do you catch a ball handler ducking...
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...
