 Knicks 85   Bulls 93   Boxscore This game from the start was a grind out defensive game from two defensive minded teams. Turnovers hurt the Knicks early  on in the game, but the defense of the Chicago Bulls was tremendous. Their 3 point defense and on the ball aggressiveness is tops in the league. They made the Knicks rush shots all night and constantly look over their shoulders throughout the game. Raymond Felton tried to carry the team on his back with no success. He did hit some key shots to keep them within 2-4 points during the game, but the lack of offense and Chicago’s rugged defense was too much for NY tonight. Carmelo Anthony was truly missed tonight. Tyson Chandler had another great game with 14 Pts. and 18 Rbs. His intensity is what every player on this team should strive for. Steve Novak took only 4 shots in 30+ plus minutes. His lack of shots was due to Chicago’s mission to take Steve and the Knicks out of the game. Overall I thought NY was sloppy, but give credit to the Bulls stifling defense. They are no joke as we all saw. The Knicks are now 14-5 and their 5 game winning streak was broken. As a Knicks fan and follower, their is no way you could be upset at this loss. Were the Knicks sloppy? Yes, but give the Bulls some respect. Put this game past you and get ready to defend home court tomorrow night at MSG against the run and gun Denver Nuggets. NY has a tough schedule coming up this week, so focus and not criticism is what this team needs.   Peter A. Knickswag Chief Editor
