The New York Knicks have (finally) been eliminated from playoff contention. That’s not a bad thing (for fans inside or outside New York) considering everyone across the Association has known this was going to happen for quite a while now.
The shocking part (as far as these two teams are concerned) is that the Chicago Bulls are seemingly back in the postseason hunt.
At this point in the year, Chicago is back in seventh place and is an entire game ahead of the eighth-place Miami Heat.
In case you haven’t figured it out up to this point, one of these teams has a lot more to play for than the other.
*All standings, statistics, records, rankings and trends are current as of this writing at 6:00 p.m. ET on Monday, April 3, 2017.
The Bulls, despite losing Dwyane Wade for the year to injuries and being a major upset most of the 2016-17 season, have worked their way back into playoff contention.
And it looks like they’re getting in.
At this point in the season, Chicago is riding a four-game winning streak. Over their last 10, the Bulls are 6-4.
On the year, this team is scoring 102.6 points per game. That number is good enough for 23rd in the league.
Defensively, this squad is giving up 103.3 points per night. That number is good enough for eighth in the league.
New York Knicks
This game, as far as the Knicks are concerned, is all about who plays. New York has sat many key contributors throughout the late part of the season, but by all indications, Carmelo Anthony will be back for this one.
On the year, this team is scoring 104.6 points per contest. That number is good enough for 19th on the year.
Defensively, this squad is giving up 108.3 points per game. That number is good enough for 24th in the Association.
Against Chicago, it comes down to stopping Jimmy Butler at this point.
Then again: Do the Knicks want to shut down the opposing team’s best player?
New York is in full tank mode. There’s little reason to believe they come away with the win in this one.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
Think of this contest as one that epitomizes what the league has to offer at this point.
The Bulls aren’t the best team in the East by a long shot, but they’re likely better than three-point dogs against a Knicks team that doesn’t care one lick about winning at this juncture.

Give this game to the Bulls, and don’t be shocked if it pushes double-digits.
