Now it looks like the Bulls are again in the way of the Knicks continuing a 13 game winning streak.It took overtime but the Bulls gored the Knicks 118-111. The Bulls also stopped the Miami Heat’s winning streak at 27 wins.
Nate Robinson scored a season-high 35 points for the Bulls in the win and Carmelo Anthony scored 36 in the loss.
Anthony missed a potential winner at the end of regulation, and Robinson took over down the stretch, scoring eight points in overtime to lift the Bulls to another streak-breaking win.
”It would have been nice if Melo knocks down that shot,” Woodson said. ”We could have walked out of here with a win. It didn’t happen.”
”For us, we’re not focused on stopping streaks,” Robinson said. ”We’re just trying to get better as a team going into the playoffs.”
The Knicks finally tied it at 105 with 14.5 seconds left when a driving Anthony got fouled by Butler and hit both free throws.
Robinson started overtime with a three-point play to give Chicago a 108-105 lead, and after Anthony scored, the Bulls started to pull away.
