Anthony helps Knicks beat Bulls 100-91

Jimmy Butler grows wings on insanely high alley-oop

Former Ohio forward Maurice Ndour made his first career National Basketball Association start Tuesday night for the New York Knicks in a 100-91 win over the Chicago Bulls.

The writing, of course, is that the Knicks are moving on and that playing and developing younger players is moving front and center and it likely means less of a role for Anthony, despite his no-trade clause in his contract. Then again, there could be a solution that fits both sides.

NY (30-48) swept the series with Chicago 3-0.

The first two quarters were evident of that. Porzingis was out with a sore lower back.

His first start came at a unusual time. We need these. There's nothing we can do about this one now.

Rajya Sabha passes GST bills
Replying to the 8-hour-long debate, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley also gave credit to the previous UPA government for the GST. On agriculture products, he maintained that it will remain outside the purview of GST in zero rate.

He has repeatedly said he hopes to remain a Knick, but his tone seems to be changing. "Guys were set to play defense".

Jimmy Butler who had 26 points, tried to help the Bulls get the lead back in the third quarter. The Knicks star said that he just wants to enjoy the game as the Knicks close out another lost season.

"They (Knicks) did a good job of scrambling, helping each other out", Hornacek said.

The Knicks outrebounded the Bulls 53-36. "We weren't playing as a unit on that defensive side of the floor". (Tuesday night) we just got kicked on the boards. "That's not how you win games".

At halftime, the Knicks led 54-40.

The Knicks have a hard schedule to finish the season.

Only the reflexes of Jakupovic prevented Boro from quickly halving the deficit as he tipped Rudy Gestede's far-post header onto the crossbar.

"If we know the offense than Phil and (GM Steve Mills) and those guys will talk about players while envisioning how they fit in this system", the coach said "Some guys may be better in a wide open court".

With Anthony back and the Knicks getting an unexpected lift from undrafted rookie Maurice Ndour, they reached 30 wins with a 100-91 victory over the Bulls Tuesday night at the Garden. "They whipped our tail in every aspect of the game".

NY shot 55 per cent from the field in the first half, compared to 33 per cent for Chicago. If things play out as they should, this might really be the last go for Carmelo Anthony in a Knicks jersey. It is more important the franchise cornerstone is healthy and ready to go at the start of the 2017-18 season, when the Knicks will look to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2012-13. He is the first Bull to earn three Player of the Week honors since Michael Jordan in 1997-98.

Bulls: Anthony Morrow scored 15 points, and Robin Lopez had 11. The teams on the left of the average line are teams the Bulls perform worse against than the league in general.

The Knicks were without Kristaps Porzingis, along with former Bulls Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah, but they still dominated thanks to a much stronger effort overall.
