The Bulls and Knicks are both coming off the heels of a classic between the teams on Sunday. Carmelo Anthony had 43 points in the game at the Garden on Sunday to lead them to the important eastern conference win. Derrick Rose scored 29 points in his return from injury, but it took him 26 shots to get his 29 points. Iman Shumpert played good defense on him for the Knicks all day long.
The Bulls have lost 3 of 5 overall, but they are still one of the most solid teams in the league and has been so all season. New York has been impressive lately as well, but they have lost the last 4 on the road by an average of 11.6 points per game. We are feeling the Bulls pulling away late especially considering they still have the effects of Sunday’s loss still fresh in their mind so bet the Chicago at best sportsbooks online.
