MSG Showdown: Bulls at Knicks

New York Knicks Kristaps Porzingis

You’ll have to forgive the Chicago Bulls if they’re looking a little tired tonight against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Chicago is coming off a 147-144 loss to Detroit that took four overtimes – just the longest game of that length since 1976 – ending a solid homestand that saw them take four of five games at the United Center.

Shark Bites
  • The Bulls are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. the Eastern Conference.
  • The OVER is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings between the Bulls and Knicks in New York.
  • The Knicks are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games following a ATS win.

Chicago hasn’t hit the road in 10 days, but playing in back-to-backs hasn’t been a problem for them this season. The Bulls are 2-0 in the second game of back-to-back contests this year, but then again, they weren’t in this spot with the aforementioned marathon game the night before.

When the Bulls and Knicks get together, high-scoring games tend to follow. The OVER is 4-0-1 in the last five meetings between the Eastern Conference squads.
