    Game Preview

    One day after losing to one of the Eastern Conference's coldest teams after the offense went frigid, the New York Knicks return to Madison Square Garden on Monday night to face another of the conference's worst teams as the Chicago Bulls come to town for a 7:30 p.m. matchup.

    The Knicks have a quick turnaround after dropping a 108-95 contest at Washington on Sunday, when no starter had more than 11 points. As a team, the Knicks (3-7) shot a paltry 42 percent from the field a 19 percent from 3-point range, obscuring what was a sound defensive effort. The Wizards shot just 43 percent and 23 percent from long range.

    The Bulls, losers of four straight, take the mantle as the East's most frustrated squad from the Wizards, who snapped a five-game losing streak in the win over New York.

    Chicago (2-8) fell, 96-88, to the Houston Rockets on Saturday, capping off an 0-4 home stand. The Bulls won the first, second, and fourth quarters individually (28-27, 28-27 and 25-21), but the Rockets held them to seven points in a 21-7 third quarter.

    "We won three of those quarters," Chicago head coach Fred Hoiberg said after the game. "Unfortunately, we lost the fourth one big, and you can't have those types of lapses, especially as depleted as we are right now," Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said. "We're battling, we're growing defensively as a group. We've just got to be more consistent for 48 minutes."

    One of the few bright spots for the young Bulls this season has been the play of rookie Chandler Hutchison. The No. 22 pick out of Boise State had 12 points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 27 minutes off the bench for the Bulls against Houston.

    "It's just continuing to learn every game with the opportunity I've been given to make an impact and help the team win," Hutchison said. "Whenever I see an opportunity, the more that it comes, the more comfortable I'm going to be out there. I'm starting to kind of find my role with this team."

    Similarly the Knicks are getting contributions from an unexpected source, as well, as undrafted rookie Allonzo Trier. He drew praise from head coach David Fizdale following the loss after scoring nine points, two days after scoring a career-high 23 in a 118-106 win at Dallas on Friday.

    "I want our whole team to be that way," Fizdale said after the loss. "That's the identity - that's Knicks DNA. Every player, if you go back through the history of the toughest teams, that was the attitude."

    Hutchison told BullsTV after the loss that while he was eager to get to Madison Square Garden, he was more eager to snap Chicago out of its funk.

    "Some of the guys have talked about (MSG) a little bit," he said, "talked about the atmosphere, and the people you see, and the crowd. But you know, focus on the win. That kind of trumps everything. It's not worrying about who we're playing or where we're playing. It's about getting some momentum."

    Knits 0-10 from downtown last 3 games. Knox should return tonight. Let’s go!

    Kanter tweets a “.” In a supposed jab at Fizdale for replacing him with MRob in the 4th... did Kanter not see his awful defense and inability to score off the horrific defensive stalwart ex-NYK bum Smith?

    First look at rookie Chandler Hutchinson...

    Hopefully we get rid of kanter after this season. After KP, KD and Zion we’re not gonna need another scoring big man, so kanter will be expendable.

    Just read online that both THJ and Knox are “available” for tonight.

    On a separate note, reading Courtney Lee’s quotes about his neck “injury” makes it sound like the most made up BS.

    Thanks Rady for the Game-Thread .... after last night miserable Dolan's Puppet-Coach loss to a 1-7 wizard team that beat us with a 7-Man rotation ..
    How will our puppet-coach Fizdale lose tonight game? By giving players that only played in 3 games this season 30 minute of playing time to let us know this is more of a TANK season than a developing season for the young core players.
    Did the Knicks hire Rasheed yet? Did the Knicks hire Chauncey Billups yet?
    If both of the above questions are NO, then the Knicks are not developing young players this season .. look for the Knicks to trade Trier and Dotson soon SMH

    Last season the two worst teammates in a lineup together in the NBA were Timmy & Lee .. Fizdale got orders to give Timmy all the playing time Timmy wants .. Timmy gets the Melo treatment.
    Melo & Amare couldn't co-exist in the same lineup what happen ???

    Dum Dum Fizdale were spose to put MitchRob or Vonleh or LT in the lineup along side Kanter in the 4th qtr. instead of having a small-ball lineup vs the Wizards trio front-court Bigs of Howard Morris and Green. Fizdale decision making receive 99.9% of the reason the Knicks loss last night !!!

    I did not think we would see a starting lineup with Trier and Dotson, but here we are.

    Great chase down block by Trier sparking our 1st field goal after missing our 1st 9 shots. The game is 8 - 4 Knicks after almost 6 minutes. 1st one to 50 wins?

    Kanter’s 1st 2 touches are a missed shot and a turnover.

    Look at Vonleh performance .. Why Fiz didnt give Vonleh any playing time in the 4th qtr. last night when he defended Howard so well

    If you like ugly basketball, then tonight’s your lucky night. 14 - 14 at about 9 minutes played.
