From the tough defense to the rugged rebounding and passing big men, the Memphis Grizzlies and Chicago Bulls are practically mirror images.
The Chicago Bulls didn't get a great night from their starters Wednesday. Their backups made sure they didn't need one.
Tony Parker had 22 points and seven assists in his return from a six-game absence, leading the San Antonio Spurs' balanced attack in a 112-106 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday night.
The Chicago Bulls were open all over the floor, so Joakim Noah kept collecting assists. Jumpers for Jimmy Butler and Kirk Hinrich. A dunk for Taj Gibson, another jumper for Butler, and on and on it went.
Taj Gibson didn't worry when Chicago fell behind Dallas early, and he wasn't concerned when the Mavericks made a late run for the lead.
The Chicago Bulls are showing they can score points as well as limit them. And when they do both, they can make beating even a good team look easy.
Kirk Hinrich made all the right moves for the Chicago Bulls in the final minute of the game.
LeBron James watched from the bench in a stylish gray suit, and with the game deadlocked at halftime, he took off his necktie.
Aaron Brooks watched attentively as Denver assistant Melvin Hunt used a laptop to go over the Nuggets' system. Jan Vesely also kept a close watch on the screen from his seat on the other side of Hunt.
This one was all over in the first quarter, right about the time Jimmy Butler's only 3-pointer made it a 20-point game.
Before his team faced the surging Bulls, Toronto coach Dwane Casey praised Chicago for being "at the head of the class" when it comes to defense.
Joakim Noah led the Chicago Bulls past the Atlanta Hawks and gave the fans an added bonus in the process.
Joakim Noah played the final 6:53 with five fouls. Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau didn't want to take him out with the Bulls' double-digit lead slipping away, and that's just the way the All-Star center wanted it.
Alan Anderson scored 19 of his 22 points in the second half, helping the Brooklyn Nets pull away from the short-handed San Antonio Spurs for a 103-89 victory Thursday night.
A trip to the desert was enough to get the Chicago Bulls back on track.
"It's really all my teammates," he said. "I think we're getting better every game."
"I think they really wanted that game today," Noah said of the Hawks. "We really wanted that game, too. It wasn't pretty at times. I'm just happy we were able to come out with the win."
