Bulls Vs. Knicks Score: New York Holds A Narrow Halftime Lead

Despite being locked into their playoff seeds, the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks are playing like there's still something on the line tonight. Both teams' starters played the entirety of the first quarter and a good chunk of the second quarter, and it appears that most of the stars for the two teams will play close to 40 minutes tonight. What Tom Thibodeau and Mike D'Antoni are thinking, I'm not exactly sure, but their questionable decision making has produced a pretty entertaining basketball game. At halftime, the Knicks lead the Bulls narrowly by a score of 55-52.

Derrick Rose continues to do random impressive things, but they truly are at random. He's not shooting well from the floor, and he's gone into the locker room with just two first half dimes to his name. Carlos Boozer isn't shooting well either, but Luol Deng is doing his part, while C.J Watson has been good off the bench.

Carmelo Anthony is shooting well for the Knicks, but the real player of the game so far has been Chauncey Billups, who has 10 points and 7 assists. Amar'e Stoudemire's absence has predictably led to the Bulls out-rebounding the Knicks by a significant margin, but the Bulls are only the better team in that department, as well as producing TV highlights plays. In every other aspect of the game, it's all Knicks.
