Chicago
New York

[NEW YORK] — The New York Knicks played host to the Chicago Bulls last night and the homeside took care of business. A 104-89 win has the Knicks and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps New York's record up to 18-22 on the season, while the loss drags Chicago's down to 19-21. Though a win's a win and Knicks fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Carmelo Anthony's 23 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists, 0 blocks and 1 steals in 33 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Ask anybody, however - Anthony included - and the most important part is that the Knicks walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Joining Anthony in the winning effort was Kyle O'Quinn. Had it not been for O'Quinn rounding out the Knicks's attack with 12 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

New York's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Bulls, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Knicks will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Knicks will be a date with the Toronto Raptors while the visiting Bulls will look to bounce back in a matchup with the New Orleans Pelicans.
