Knicks 120, Bulls 112
Just going to make a quick post here, because we should have another more lengthy article up some time tomorrow. The Knicks won their first tough game of the season in Chicago, 120-112. Douglas led the team with 30 points on 14 shots, and Gallo came out of his slump with 24 on 11 field goal attempts. Felton had 20 points on 11 shots, coupled with 10 dimes. Amar’e continued his turnover fest with 8. The team hit 16-24 from downtown (66.7%).
Oddly enough the Bulls sat out their star players Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah for most of the 4th quarter. Coach Thibodeau stayed with his reserves down the stretch, perhaps because many of them helped to come back from a 28 point half time deficit. The Bulls fans were cheering for Rose with about 3 minutes left, to no avail. Chicago relied on Kyle Korver’s shooting late in the game, but were unable to come back from such a large deficit.
