(CHICAGO) — The Chicago Bulls (35-9) received 32 points, six boards and seven assists from point guard Derrick Rose as they handed the New York Knicks (18-24) their sixth straight loss, 104-99.
“We got to keep plugging away no matter what,” Knicks center Tyson Chandler said. “We got to keep a positive outlook…Come ready to work. If we start getting down things aren’t going to get any easier from here.”
The Knicks are two and eight since the return of star forward Carmelo Anthony. Previous to that, they had won eight of nine and where one of the biggest stories in the league.
The Knicks can break their losing streak Wednesday when they take on Portland.
