The Knicks on this night gets a game-high 26 points from the "Bully of MSG" and that would be 'Melo Anthony as he added nine boards. D-Rose chipped in with 17 points as this is the 2nd time he has faced his old mates and he is 2-0. New York led 64-51 at the break and never looked back and stretched that lead to 86-65 after three.
The Bulls "D" has been non-existent to say the least as New York shot at nearly a 48% clip coupled with %82 from the charity stripe. No Jimmy Butler for Chicago Wade County led the way with 22 points with Jerian Grant adding 14 off the bench. This Bulls Team started out fairly well but has slipped dramatically to the point to where Bulls lead man Fred Hoiberg probably wishes he was right in the middle of Big 12 Action and playing home games at Hilton Coliseum.
The Knicks bouncing back from a horrible "L" last night at the hands of the Liberty Bell Boys dba Philly Sixers on a buzzer-beater. New York has its own issues with 'Melo running on fumes and D-Rose playing like he is not in a contract year.
Chicago will face Chicago Native the "Brow" of State Bird Louisiana Hoops on Saturday Night from the Madhouse. That will be the first of back to back home/motel swing as they swing to the Grindhouse for a Sunday Night Tilt with the 24-17 Grot and Grind Grizz playing well under Fiz Ball!
