(CHICAGO) — Joakim Noah recorded the fifth triple-double of his career with 13 points, 12 rebounds and 14 assists to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 109-90 beatdown of the New York Knicks Sunday.
“It’s really all my teammates,” said Noah, whose 14 assists are the most for a center since 1979. “I think we’re getting better every game.”
Noah wasn’t the only Chicago player to contribute to this win. Seven Bulls scored in double figures and the team set a franchise record by committing only three turnovers, giving Chicago its ninth win in 10 games.
D.J. Augustin scored 21 of his game-high 23 points in the fourth quarter for Chicago (33-26), which has gone 21-8 since the start of this year.
As for the Knicks (21-39), they have now lost six straight.
“It’s embarrassing,” said Carmelo Anthony, who scored 21 points in the loss. “It’s frustrating and it’s embarrassing.”
