Bad Boys II

Somewhere, Chuck Daly looked down and smiled as he saw the Bulls versus Knicks game a few nights ago.  The Bulls took a classic page out of the old Bad Boys team, and got in to the heads of the Knicks, with hard physical play and pushing the Knicks out of their comfort zone and that achieved their goal of getting the win versus a more talented team.  For the third time this year...
