Thibs says Taj will travel with team to Memphis. Rose might go tomorrow if he feels better. #bulls

Nick Friedell

Thibs says Gibson is going with the Bulls to Memphis. Sounds like Rose is not. Although Thibs leaves door open he could join them tomorrow.

Joe Cowley

Rose not flying with Bulls. Revisit it tomorrow.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls get a win and it's off to Memphis

Nick Friedell

Bulls close it out 103-97. Butler finishes with a career high 35 points, 7 assists and 5 rebounds. His agent, Happy Walters, is $miling.

Steve Aschburner

Tomorrow's game at Memphis can't be an issue for Bulls if you go down to final minute to beat this Knicks team. CHI 103, NYK 97. Butler 35p.

Sean Highkin

Bulls win 103-97. Have to play better than this in Memphis tomorrow night.

Sam Smith

Bulls finally get off reb; Noah with 13 secs and Bulls up 3; passes to Brooks, fouled; Pau rebs second. Plan was to wait; titillate TNT

Chuck Swirsky

Gasol and Brooks big time free throws..Bulls 103-97 with 10 sec left

Chuck Swirsky

Gasol with a layup from Brooks...100-97 Bulls 52 sec left NY ball

Steve Aschburner

That decibel level was for pushing the Bulls' lead to three, 100-97, and for the free burgers if they win. Not necessarily in that order.

Chris Herring

Career-high 35 pts from Butler. Bulls lead 96-91 with 2:35 left.

Sam Smith

Knicks pull within 90-89 w/4:12 left. 76ers checking schedule to see when they get Bulls

Chuck Swirsky

NY on 12-3 run Bulls 90-89...412 left 4th

Nick Friedell

Win or lose, I'd be shocked if Thibs didn't light his team up after this one. The Knicks just want this game more than the Bulls do.

Mike McGraw

Jimmy Butler has scored 32 pts, but he's let Tim Hardaway Jr. score 20, 4 short of season-high. #Bulls

Sam Smith

Timeout w/6:02 left to get oxygen for Butler. Has 32 points, 7 assts, 5 rebs, 4 stls, taped ankles at half and cut oranges; 87-81 Bulls

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 87-81 602 left 4th

Tina Cervasio

Butler fast break on #Knicks TO could be momentum changer. #Bulls before that looked disinterested. Butler has 30 points on 10/17 shooting
