Game 1 of the TNT doubleheader has the Chicago Bulls playing host to the New York Knicks at 8PM Eastern Time. The New York season is heading toward the lottery as the team enters play at 5-22 on the year. They are simply not showing any signs of buying into the triangle offense being taught by first year head coach Derrick Fisher. The team is 28th and third last in scoring offense as they push across just 93 points per game. Their latest loss was on Tuesday as the hosted the Dallas Mavericks and was routed 107-87. Carmelo Anthony leads the Knicks in scoring at 23 points per game and is hitting on 45.7% from the field. Chicago is 15-9 on this young season. They will look to bounce back from a 93-86 defeat at Atlanta on Sunday that broke their three game win streak. The Bulls are not putting up the defensive numbers from the past but still respectable as they allow 98 points per game and 43% shooting. The offense has increased big time over last year as Derrick Rose is healthy and the team acquired Pau Gasol.

The late night game will feature the two Western conference champion contenders as Stephen Curry and the Golden St Warriors will host Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder at 10:30PM Eastern Time over TNT TV. Golden St will try and bounce back after a loss to Memphis on the road on Tuesday that snapped the clubs 16 game win streak. They were dumfounded by a Grizzlies 20-0 run in the second quarter. The Warriors are the top team in the league in defensive field goal defense by allowing just 41.3% shooting per game. Oklahoma City is now healthy with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook back in the rotation. As a result OKC has won seven straight games after a 12 point road win at Sacramento on Tuesday night.
