Justin Holiday scores 16 points with 9 rebounds in Bulls' win

Kristaps Porzingis finished with 24 points on 24 shot

So Markkanen's averages of 15.4 points and 7.6 rebounds may not have him at the top of his class after the first half of his first season in the league, but he has shown a knack for the big shot at the right time.

They also ran their home losing streak to three-straight games after a deflating, 122-119, defeat to the Bulls Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.

Robin Lopez and Denzel Valentine each scored 20 points for the Bulls in their third narrow victory over the Knicks this season.

"We got a date", LaVine told reporters on Tuesday.

"In the Eastern Conference, man, we have opportunities, but we can't waste them or keep letting games like this fall by the wayside, like we can just make them up". But they continue to have trouble against the Bulls. The Knicks have already beaten the Bulls twice in December but both games were decided by a combined seven points so I'm expecting another close contest. But he was scoreless in the overtime periods.

In Milwaukee, Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 26 points, Khris Middleton added 22 and the Bucks turned up their defensive intensity after a porous first quarter to beat Orlando. Chicago covered as a 2-point favorite and the game finished with a total of 179 points, which was 29 points below the projected point total of 208 points. He finished with a career high 33 points, 10 rebounds, and he made eight three pointers.

Andre Drummond scored 22 points and grabbed 20 rebounds while Tobias Harris had 22 points, as the Detroit Pistons blew past the Brooklyn Nets 114-80. They rank 5th at avoiding errors (turnover percentage of 13.1 percent), while the Knicks force the ninth-fewest turnovers in the National Basketball Association (opponents' turnover percentage of 13.5 percent).


"He had an wonderful game", Porzingis said. But with Dunn finally finishing with a driving bank shot. Williams shot 16 for 27 with a career-best eight 3-pointers and made all 10 of his free throws. Markannen was fouled intentionally with 6.8 seconds left and he sank both free throws for the final points of the game. I wasn't going to try it, honestly.

Ekpe Udoh scored 16 points and Joe Johnson had 16 off the bench for the Jazz, who had lost 13 of 16 in between meetings with Washington. Jack used some trickery to tie the score.

After Dunn forced Porzingis to miss a 9-footer with 42.3 seconds left, the teams traded turnovers before Chicago's Justin Holiday hit two free throws with 13.9 seconds to go.

The Bulls took a 112-110 lead on a Lopez put-back with 39.9 seconds left. Damian Lillard made a layup on the other end, but Paul cut through three defenders to make an off-balance layup to push the lead to 113-106. Porzingis came around to a double screen and was wide open. Beasley had seven, with four coming off offensive rebounds.

On the next trip, Markkanen misfired on a three-pointer. The refs initially ruled Knicks' ball. The game starts at 7:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, January 10, 2018, and will air on NBC Sports Chicago.

The Bulls didn't get a good shot as Kris Dunn air-balled a step-back jumper.
