Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks have known for quite some time they wouldn’t be going to the postseason this year.
However, while it is a small consolation prize, they have a chance to play the spoiler role when they meet with the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday.
Chicago continues their push for a playoff spot as they battle at the bottom of the Eastern Conference.
The Knicks fate could be determined before the game even starts.
Carmelo Anthony has been one guy to make it known he hasn’t quit on this season and wants to finish it strong, but he was held out of the game on Sunday with a migraine, as the Knicks just are a different team offensively without him. New York fell for the third straight time, which also marked the 3rd straight game they scored less than 90 points in a game.
There hasn’t been too many positives for the Knicks this season, but relishing the spoiler role down the stretch and developing their rookies would be a solid turnout for them.
Kristaps Porzingis and Jerian Grant continue to be a crucial part of this team and while the growing pains have been there, it hasn’t stopped them from really showing off some skills at times. The duo will offer a bright future for the Knicks and these kinds of games are perfect to get them experience.
The Bulls have battled injuries all season long, but are really using this homestand to get players healthy and start what could be a playoff push winning streak.
Chicago got Pau Gasol back in the lineup on Monday as he provided a spark with 14 points and 14 rebounds as the Bulls came from behind to knock off the Kings 109-102. The win was the 3rd straight for Chicago to start this home stand.
With the recent surge, Chicago is now back in 8th, by percentage points as they are tied with Detroit.
With Gasol back in the lineup, the Bulls finally had their full starting lineup back in tact. Gasol, Rose, Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson and Mike Dunleavy all were starting for just the 2nd time this year.
While it’s been a disappointing season for Chicago in terms of their position in the standings, it’s remarkable they’re in a playoff spot with that being just the 2nd time their starting lineup has been back.
