On Wednesday, April 28th, the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks meet for the third and final time this season. The teams split a two-game Chicago series on February 1st and 3rd. The Bulls won the first game 110-102 while the Knicks won the second 107-103.
The Bulls hold the all-time record between the clubs with 124 wins in 234 meetings. Last season, the teams played three times with the Knicks taking two of the three contests.
Having lost ground on the 10th seed during a six-game losing streak, the Bulls have rebounded well despite missing Zach LaVine. Chicago has won four of their last six games with three critical wins against seeded clubs.
The most recent being the victory versus the Miami Heat who are equally invested in moving up.
Nikola Vucevic delivered a double-double of 24 points and 11 rebounds to lead his Bulls. Equally impressive was Daniel Theis who stepped up to deliver his own double-double of 23 points and 12 rebounds.
Chicago moved within a game of Washington for 10th place in the East and the last berth in the play-in tournament. The Wizards lost earlier Monday to San Antonio.
“We have to focus on ourselves, make sure we bring it every night and we approach every game as if it’s a win-or-go-home type of mentality,” Vucevic said. “Try to take care of business ourselves, and hopefully things work out from other teams.”
Coby White (17), Bulls: Lauri Markkanen (12), Garrett Temple (10), and Thaddeus Young (10) were the other Bulls registering double-figure scores.
Troy Brown (ankle) and Zach LaVine (protocols) both missed the game Monday are listed as day-to-day.
New York Knicks
The winning streak ended at nine with the Suns defeating the Knicks on Monday, but it doesn’t take away from how well the Knicks are playing.
What the Suns exposed, however, is teams with a superstar(s) could pose a problem for the Knicks to defend or to match with a counterpunch.
Certainly, Julius Randle has been stellar but if playoff teams build a defense around limiting him – – who on the Knicks can rise to offer a similar offensive punch? Sure, RJ Barrett has made strides but he’s still a sophomore and this will be his first postseason experience.
As much as it’s good for the NBA to have the Knicks performing well it sure feels like they need another superstar to join the top trio in the East who have distanced themselves from the pack.
New York needs to be cognizant of the chase pack. COVID hampered the Celtics, Heat, and Raptors. Plus the rising young clubs like the Hawks, Hornets, and Bulls are only going to get better with constancy and experience.
In the loss to the Suns, Randle scored 18 while Barrett and Reggie Bullock each scored 17. Derrick Rose was the top scorer with 22 points off the bench.
Alec Burks is questionable while he deals with safety protocols while Mitchell Robinson is out indefinitely with a fractured foot.
