    Game Preview

    NEW YORK -- Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah will get another shot at their former team when the New York Knicks host the Chicago Bulls on Thursday at Madison Square Garden.

    With the Bulls (19-20), Rose was the MVP in 2011 and Noah was the league's Defensive Player of the Year for the 2013-14 season. The duo was part of an offseason makeover by the Knicks, who haven't made the playoffs in three seasons.

    The Knicks (17-22) won the first meeting, 117-104, in Chicago on Nov. 4. Rose scored 15 points and dished out 11 assists, while Noah recorded 16 points and nine rebounds.

    But that is ancient history. New York has dropped nine of its last 10 games and the news surrounding Rose hasn't been positive. He never showed up for the game against New Orleans on Monday at the Garden, a 110-96 loss, leaving his teammates and coach Jeff Hornacek holding the bag on his unexcused absence.

    Rose returned to practice on Tuesday and offered an explanation.

    "It was a family issue," Rose said. "It had nothing to do with the team or basketball. That's the first time I ever felt like that emotionally and I had to be with my family."

    He returned on Wednesday, scoring 25 points in the Knicks' 98-97 buzzer-beater loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.

    The Knicks fined Rose the sum of $200,000 for missing the contest without notification, the New York Post reported on Thursday.

    In the second quarter, New York led by as much as 17 points. Philadelphia stormed back on a 15-3 run to close the half and started the third quarter on a 13-4 run. It erased a 13-point deficit in the final 8:49 of the game.

    "We have to go out and win the next one and keep our heads up," Rose said.

    The 76ers had lost 78 straight games when trailing by 15 or more points.

    "It's a tough way to lose," said Hornacek. "We let them (Philadelphia) come right back. We weren't able to finish it."
    Carmelo Anthony poured in 28 points, passing Robert Parrish for the 26th on the all-time scoring list with 23,337 points. Charles Barkley is 25th at 23,757.

    The Bulls are dealing with their own issues at guard. Chicago will have a rejuvenated Rajon Rondo on Thursday. Rondo, who played 27 minutes in Tuesday's 101-99 loss to the Washington Wizards, was coming off a five-game benching by Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg.

    "I got a slight explanation from another guy on the (coaching) staff," Rondo said. "The guy told me that he was saving me from myself.

    "Save me from myself?" he said. "I've never heard that before in my life. I guess he was trying to do the best thing for me."

    Rondo finished with 12 points on 6-for-13 shooting, six assists, four rebounds, three steals and two turnovers in 27-plus minutes.

    The Bulls will need that kind of production from their mercurial guard as they will be without Jimmy Butler and Nikola Mirotic, who missed the Washington game with illnesses.

    Noah n Rose started the game scoring the first two baskets as if they were gonna blow-out there previous team, then ISO-Melo got into the scoring act, then coach Horn takes Noah out the game 5 minute into the first quarter .. Jennings looking terrible he cant do anything to stop Rondo or ex-Knicks Jerian Grant from scoring or dishing.
    Quinn/Willy/Kuz/Holiday looked good as a 2nd unit 2-way lineup.
    Lance Thomas is our biggest weakness, since Lance came back from injury all he did was help us lose repeatedly.
    ISO-Melo was lighting it up at the end of the first half .. Half-time Knicks lead 54-51

    One thing Melo can still do is finger-roll

    I thought we would have a chance with Butler out. Quinn having a very nice game along with Noah. Going to have to see the game tomorrow but this looks like the boys picked up the D tonight even w/o KP.

    Kuz has finally been given some green-light to score a season high 19 points on 8-15 fga .. Our BIG-3 Melo/Rose/KP has been selfish in sharing the scoring with teammates .. I actually believe the Knicks need to trade with the Grizz for Vince Carter to teach Melo n Rose the other aspect of the game beside just Isolation-scoring .. the fundamentals of winning.

    KUZ looked better than mcDermott. He's a keeper.... very good role player who might be a decent player for a few years. Rose clearly still can penetrate.... If Phil can't get something of value for Lee And Rose he should quit. Still, Rose the best PG we've seen here in years.

    Just think how Ainge swiped IT at deadline last year. Let's see what young player we could steal.

    Tonight was product of CHI being a bad team. I'm still rooting for a lottery pick but won't scream
    if we get the 6th seed.

    Horn did something right tonight .. Horn took advantage of the Bulls two missing starters .. Bulls defenders had no answer for Kuz moving without the ball through open lanes with Noah or Quinn or Willy providing screens for spacing .. Kuz DUNK was all about spacing and movement.
    Melo gave out most of his 6 assist to teammates that were cutting through the lane ..
    Rose had 3 assist n Jennings had 1 assist .. problem!
    In the 2nd quarter coach Horn put an all bench lineup on the court for 7 minutes that help stretch the lead .. having Quinn on the court for 9 straight minute in the first half then 8 straight minute in the 2nd half of the game payed off

    Thanks Kiya for the recap. Beating the Bulls w/o their best player and a scorer in Mirotec doesn't prove anything but Horn has to start putting the best team out there which means Quinn and Kuz over Noah and LT. Noah has picked up his game but Quinn gives you a guy that can pick and pop along with making the occasional 3 and is a more reliable FT shooter. Raps will be a better test than the Bulls but Quinn and Kuz have to be more involved from here on out.
