The New York Knicks have become a dreadful team since Carmelo Anthony returned to the lineup for the team. We are now finding out why George Carl was willing to trade Anthony away from the Denver Nuggets. The Knicks have lost five straight games and as Carmelo returns there is no defense played on the court. Sound familiar? New York Knicks have allowed 110 points and 47% shooting over the teams past five games. Opponents are making nearly 40% from the three point line against New York during this span.

Chicago is running well right now with nine wins over their past ten games. In their past five games they are holding teams to just 42.1% shooting while on the offensive end of the court the club is averaging nearly 100 points and 47 ½ point shooting. Point guard Derrick Rose seems to be in an ideal matchup tonight against Jeremy Lin who struggled against elite point guards. Kyle Korver has shot the ball very well from the outside for the Bulls which stretches the opposing defense and that creates space on the court for Derrick Rose to drive the basket and create high percentage shots for his teammates as he dishes often to open players. On the injury report for Chicago forward Luol Den is doubtful tonight with a wrist injury which forced him to miss Saturday’s game against Utah.
