The Bulls and New York Knicks play a home and home, back to back, as they shift the series to New York on Thursday night.
The teams will meet in Chicago on Wednesday night, as the Knicks really have a chance to play spoiler here and put a dent in the Bulls playoff hopes.
Chicago will conclude their home stand in the first leg of this home and home and then hit the road to play one at MSG.
Things haven’t been kind to the Bulls one the road this season. Chicago has gone just 12-21 SU away from the United Center and only 13-20 ATS in that span. Defense has been the issue for them on the road, as they give up nearly 107 points per game.
Pau Gasol has been a major key for Chicago this season. When many of the veterans went down with injuries, it was Pau Gasol who stepped up in a big. Gasol needs just one more double-double, to record his 40th on the year. This would mark the 5th time in 7 seasons he has reached that achievement.
The New York Knicks drafted PF Kristaps Porzingis in the first round of the NBA draft and hoped he would be the future along side Carmelo Anthony.
While Porzingis has had some growing pains, one thing is for sure, he does have a bright future.
He’s been very up and down this year and is in a stretch where he has been very inconsistent. Prozingis has shot just 31.3 percent over the past 6 games.
Jerian Grant has also provided a spark for them. Grant, a rookie, has shot 47% since the all star break.
