by far the most disappointing and embarrassing loss of the season, sad night to be a Bulls fan. Hate to say it but Rose cost us this game

Pretty awful call there at the end, but the game should never have come down to that. Tyrus played really well again, good to see him string a couple solid games together. Derrick was pretty atrocious tonight, out-played to the end by Augustin. Just a really bad loss overall.

This team is just atrocious on the road. 2 games in the last week to near bottom feeder teams.
While the Memphis loss in retrospect is understandable, as they have a winning home record and now have a 5 game win-streak this loss to a team with a 7-game losing streak and giving up 110 points to the worst offense in the league in unacceptable.
But, anyone remember a number of years back The Twin Babys led by another Rose won 36 home games but missed the playoffs because they only won 3 road games the entire season.
Rose is going to have bad games, that's a given, too bad there aren't other guys on the team who can pick up the slack.

This why this team is in difficult position if they want to make the playoffs. They're bad enough to give away games to awful teams and good enough to compete with the good ones.

It was Derrick Rose's worst game as a pro.

This guy can hit a 15-20 footer occasionally, great. But man, somebody needs to tell him that those turnaround fadeaways is not his role. If thats what hes gonna do, why dont we just play him at the two? I would be much more comfortable playing Thomas way more than Gooden because at least he seemingly has learned that his strong point is attacking the basket, even if he did shoot a few jumpers tonight. Drew Gooden takes this whole offense out of rythym everytime he shoots those stupid shots. He is so painful to watch it makes me almost want Ben Wallace back, and thats saying something. Words cannot express how relieved I was when he fouled out.

that was some real home cooking tonight .. what was the difference in the free throw between these teams tonight? 40 for the Bobcats and 20 for the Bulls? How you can win in that kind of home cooking is beyond me!! And don't even mention that call at the end of regulation to the rookie Augustin .. I mean Stacey is right, rookies don't get those calls (as evidenced by Rose not getting a lot of calls when he drives to the lane) but why give it to Augustin? Man .. home cooking I tell yah

3 point foul cost us the game.....Derrick Rose needs to lead us to winning games....if he don't score 15 or better we are not going to win......Ben Gordon needs help right now.....I wish we could trade Nacioni & Deng because every time they come into the game they don't play like they want to "WIN". If he wouldn't have got that technical foul probably the results would have been different.

we need a trade NOW....include Kirk in that package....

I agree, Gooden is one low IQ basketball player. He never passes the ball ands he is always making dumb turnovers.

Games like this makes you wonder if the Refs are on the up and up.

Eli Roe=Tim Donaghy. That guy must have had something on the game. Forty free throws for the Bobcats. Hard to overcome that. Anyway, Bulls will lose some of these as well as win some of these. Unfortunately, the Bulls are a fringe playoff team at best. I can live with that for now. The best thing is developing Derrick Rose, Tyrus Thomas and Noah and getting a low post scorer.

Tyrus was OK, two games in a row....
But why is he taking 16 shots--can Vinnie Boom-Batz get him under control?????????? 16 shots????

Where is Deng the highest paid core guy..he is barely average. Let Hughes play more minutes, he is not a mope like Deng........

No-Shot Noah is so weak, he may have a prostate infection or is it a hangover??????????

rose is a rookie. Noci is a good bench player. Thomas can stay commited to his strengths. Gooden is a solid veteran if he came of the bench. Gordon would benefit with a big time scorer at his side. Deng doesnt know how to play with a good PG but has a solid jumper, thats about it. Noah is the biggest piece on the team. Hinrich needs to come back to his previous form. Hughes needs to pass the freaking ball. The White Panther lol needs to lose weight and try harder, then he would be above average. Still this team surprises me sometimes. All they need is a low post scorer (Gasol) and a go to guy (kobe). Its sad that we could have had both of them. I wonder what Paxson is not gonna do this season.
