The Knicks will face against the Bulls Wednesday Night in the Windy City for the second time in three days. The two faced off on Monday with Chicago prevailing and covering the spread with a 110-102 victory. It was a 3 point differential heading into the 4th quarter but Chicago was able to score enough against the Knicks ferocious D to pull away late.
The Bulls were led by Lauri Markannen who dropped his second straight 30 point game along with 5 rebounds. Julius Randle had a stellar night despite the loss for the Knicks with 23 points 11 rebounds and 7 assists.
New York Knicks
New York has dropped 4 of their last 5 games after Mondays defeat to the Bulls, dropping them down to the 10th spot in the Eastern Conference. The team started well under 1st year coach Tom Thibodeau but have slowed down as of late. RJ Barrett has turned a corner as he is finally scoring consistently and efficiently over his last ten games. In that span, Barrett has scored at least 17 points in nine of ten games while shooting at least 42% from the field in each game.
Rookie Immanuel Quickley has become a fan favorite thanks to his signature running floater. Quickley is coming off of a huge week as he scored 25 points or more in three of the Knicks’ four games
The Knicks have been a defensive minded team all year as is expected under the coaching of Thibodeau. New York is 3rd in league in defensive efficiency but only 24th in offensive. If they want to get back on track they’ll need to start shooting the ball better.
Chicago had their hearts ripped out on Saturday as Damian Lillard did to them what he does best and that is hit game winning shots. Lillard hit a 3PT as time expired to hand the Bulls a 123-122 loss. However, Chicago learned from their mistakes and were able to win in another down the stretch on Monday night against New York.
The Bulls are led by Zach LaVine who is 11th in the NBA with 26.9 points per game. LaVine has taken his scoring to another level as he ranks in the 100th percentile in points per shot attempt among combo guards.

Free New York Knicks vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction:
Chicago and New York has the probability of going down to the wire as these two teams are familiar after playing just 2 nights ago. That game was close all the way through and I expect that to be the case again. The line is small again as the oddsmakers expect what I do as well which is a low scoring defensive affair. With the points practically being an extra bucket to either side I’ll take the Knicks as the ML underdog. I like New York to bounce back in this spot and secure the late game win after letting Chicago steal it late on Monday.
