Prediction

The Knicks have been pretty good lately and playing tough defense like they used to play past seasons as they have allowed an average of 92 points in their last 4 wins. The Bulls have been up and down this season but they have won their last 3 games at home. With the Knicks playing so good defense and the under cashing big time when these two teams have met I think that's the best play.
