Sunday, November 21st, finds the New York Knicks facing the Chicago Bulls in their second meeting of this season with the first on October 28th, in a contest the Knicks won 104-103.
New York played Saturday on the front side of their back-to-back garnering a 106–99 win versus the Rockets. This is the first game back home after a five-game Western road trip for the Bulls that finished with a win in Denver.
Last season, the teams played three times with the Knicks taking two of the three contests. The Bulls hold the all-time record having bested the Knicks in 124 of their 236 matches.
New York Knicks
After jumping out to a 5-1 start to the season the Knicks arrived at the weekend having struggled with a 3-6 record through their last nine matches. They got back on track Saturday with a matinee win versus the Rockets.
Despite losing to the Magic on Wednesday, the Knicks starters still struggled and fell behind by double-digits to Houston who’ve won only a single game this season.
The game ball goes to Alec Burks who did everything to ensure the victory including connecting on a career-best six 3-pointers amassing 20 points, five rebounds, three assists, and five steals.
Burks came alive in the fourth scoring 17 points, drilling five of his 3-balls and snaring four of his five steals. Julius Randle registered a double-double of 16 points and 10 rebounds.
Evan Fournier (19), Immanuel Quickley (13) and RJ Barrett (11) were the other double-figure contributors.
Although the Knicks will be happy with the win that’s two games in a row they’ve struggled against lottery-bound teams.
It’s the starting unit that is having issues and while they only lost 64 to 61 to the Rockets starters if not for Burks this would’ve been another loss.
The Knicks starting unit ranks 26th scoring 66.9 points but their bench ranks third with 40.7 points. Taj Gibson (groin) is questionable to play Sunday.
The five-game Western road trip for the Chicago Bulls ended with a victory allowing them to come out of this opposite coast swing with a winning 3-2 record and a 7-4 record through their last 11 games.
Chicago got the fortune of playing the Nuggets without reigning MVP in the lineup as Nikola Jokic sat to rest his sprained wrist. Despite the Nuggets missing numerous players from the core, they battled Chicago pushing them to clutch time where the Bulls pulled through.
Zach LaVine led the Bulls with 36 points including hitting four of his nine 3-pointers adding five rebounds, four assists, and a steal.
DeMar DeRozan had a rough shooting night (7 of 21) but notched 26 points including hitting all 12 free throws and added six rebounds, four assists, and two steals.
Derrick Jones Jr. (16) and Ayo Dosunmu (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Jeff Green (ankle) is questionable for Sunday. Nikola Vucevic (COVID) remains out with no definitive return date. Patrick Williams (thumb) is out for the season.
