Wednesday, January 10 finds Eastern Conference rivals the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks squaring off at the Mecca. The Bulls arrive in New York on the heels of back to back losses to the Rockets and Pacers and losers of their last five of six. The Knicks meanwhile got a rare road victory beating the Mavericks in Dallas. New York are also experiencing a tough patch losing seven of their past nine games.
Last season, the squads played three times with the Knicks sweeping the Bulls, but this year the Bulls switched the narrative winning the first two matches. The Bulls hold the all-time record having bested the Knicks 120 of their 224 matches.
The big news in Chicago is Zach LaVine will make his long awaited debut this weekend. Although he won’t be able to suit up for the match versus the Knicks this news is sure to bolster the Bulls mindset as they prepare for LaVine’s return. For this evening the man who might be missing in the Bulls lineup is Nikola Mirotic who missed the last outing due to an illness and it is not known if he’ll be able to go tonight in New York.
Denzel Valentine is showing signs of taking the next step at the pro level. In the Bulls last outing he scored 19 points adding 5 rebounds and 8 assists. This is the type of all around production the Bulls anticipated from the wingman when they drafted him. Kris Dunn equaled Valentine’s 19 points and Bobby Portis notched a team high 22 points off the bench.
Much of the reason why the Bulls suddenly began winning was tied to Nikola Mirotic’s return and having more floor spreading options. The Bulls are now thrust into the position of whether they actively tank or push to try for the eighth seed in the East. If they chose the latter they’ll need to make up 7.5 games on the eighth seeded Pacers who have eight fewer losses than the Bulls
New York Knicks
The win in Dallas was just the fourth time in 18 opportunities for the Knicks. Clearly the team offers a Jekyll and Hyde persona at home where they are 15 and 7. For the Knicks to make a run at the postseason they’ll need to learn how to win on the road consistently. With only 18 games played on the road the Knicks have ample opportunity to fix this issue with a further 23 games to play outside the warm confines of Madison Square Garden.
Entering the match Michael Beasley may not be available as he nurses an ankle sprain which caused him to miss the game the Dallas. In addition Tim Hardaway Jr. continues to deal with a lower leg injury which has caused him to miss the past 19 games. Hardaway is expected to return in the middle of January.
