Knicks Fight, But Fall Short To Bulls

Taj Gibson grabbed eight of Chicago’s 22 offensive boards and defending MVP Derrick Rose scored 32 helping the Bulls get past the Knicks 104-99 at the United Center Monday night.

Gibson  finished with 15 points and snatched 13 of Chicago’s 56 rebounds versus just 38 boards for the Knicks.

Carlos Boozer had 15, as well, with Joakim Noah scoring a dozen and adding ten boards.

For the Knicks, who dropped their sixth-straight to fall to 18-24, there appeared to be a renewed sense of urgency on defense as they hung around against a much better team. But, poor shot selection in the second half kept the offense out of sync.

Carmelo Anthony scored 21 points on 8-of-21 from field to go along with eight rebounds. Tyson Chandler recorded a double-double, 13 points and 10 boards. Amar’e Stoudemire had 20 points and Jeremy Lin added 15 and eight assists.

Chicago won Monday with two starters missing from the lineup – Luol Deng (wrist) and Richard Hamilton (shoulder).

New York has dropped into a tie with Milwaukee for the eighth and final playoff spot in the East. The Knicks host the Blazers on Wednesday night at MSG.
