Knicks vs. Bulls (Game 26): Dec. 21st, 7:30 PM EST
New York Knicks: 19-6 (11-1 at home)
Chicago Bulls: 14-10 (6-4 on the road)
Head-to-Head: Bulls Lead 1-0
Last time we played the Bulls, it was the last game of a long road trip and there was no Melo.
Chicago ended New York’s five game winning streak.
There was no answer for Marco Bellinninininnini or Luol Dong.
Well, the Knicks are rested, we’re at home and Melo is in the line-up. Things should be different this time around.
Key Matchup: Melo vs. Boozer - this will be a tough cover for both.
What 2 Watch:
- Defense - Bulls rank second in the league in points allowed at 90.3. They are a very good defensive team. Tonight’s is going to be a pretty low scoring game.
- Felton - he took 30 shots last time, making only 9 of them… had to carry most of the offensive burden with Melo out. No need this time, just do your normal thing tonight Ray.
Let’s keep the home dominance going.
Betting Line: Knicks by 6 (O/U 188.0)
