Several Bulls waiting to do postgame interviews until ND-Kentucky finish. Reporters and players standing around watching.
That's the Knicks' franchise-record 60th defeat. Bulls move to within 2 games of the Cavaliers for the No. 2 seed in the East.
Bulls win Bulls win Bulls win 111-80 Bulls 45-29 ..Knicks franchise worse14-60
Bulls just committed 13th turnovers, snapping their streak of games with 12 or fewer at 7. That was longest streak since 96-97 season.
Bulls 109-74.....Niko with 24--Bairstow enters with 2:43 left....every player dressed plays tonight
Joakim Noah's streak of 14 straight games with 5 or more assists will end vs. Knicks. Longest by center since Vlade Divac in 2004.
Mirotic has 8 20-point games in March after posting just 2 from November though February.
84-53 at the end of the third. Gaol with 19-12-4 assists. Butler with 18, Niko with 16
After 3---Bulls 84-53......Gasol 48th dbl-dbl of 19-12 Butler-18
Bulls lead by 30. “The Wave” has started in the United Center. No lie
Interesting look by the Bulls - really super jumbo package.
Gasol back to back hoops...Gasol dbl-dbl 48 Bulls 77-51
Butler following up his 23-points-on-8-shots performance in Toronto with 18 points on 9 shots thus far vs. Knicks.
Butler 4 steals tonight
I know it’s the Knicks but Jimmy Butler looks very active tonight. Tone setter. Very Alpha-male like
League-leading 48th double-double for Gasol, who wouldn't be here if Carmelo Anthony had said yes to Bulls.
Butler with a spin and score Bulls 65-45
Fan sitting in expensive seats talks trash to Shane Larkin. My question is why? Wouldn’t you save your best work for the playoffs?
Bulls fans...thoughts on the 2nd half.....you are listening...right? Right?
Mirotic's 3 3-pointers in the 1st half pushed him past Marcus Smart for most by a rookie this season. Mirotic now has 82.
Bulls up 54-34 at the half. Niko, Brooks, Gasol and Butler in double figures. Bargain with 8-6 for the Knicks
Bulls 54-34 at half.... Gasol 13-7,
This game looks to be over. Bulls up 52-32. 1:26 left in the first half. Glorified scrimmage
Bulls already with 4 double figure scorers....Niko-Gasol each with 11 Brooks and Butler each with 10 Niko leads all rooks in 3s made with82
Bulls up 52-32 1:26 left 2nd quarter
Spurs-like ball movement on the Niko splashdown.
Noah asked Galloway twice if he was OK after both players fell to ground there.
Bulls up 42-27. I don’t know if Derek Fisher is or isn’t a good coach but houdini couldn’t work magic with this bunch
Bulls 8-0 run over 49 sec.
Bulls in a blow out 42-27 5:48 left 2nd quarter
Bulls 33-23..8:44 left 2nd
They’ve got Niko at the 3, so he put Cleanthony Early on the block, scores and gets a foul. Nice recognition
Further evidence that Phil Jackson is great at living in a mansion ... terrible at building one.
Bulls up 28-17 after 1. Margin should be wider. Bulls shooting 57%, Gasol 11-6. Lance Thomas, apparently he’s still in the leaguem with 5
Bulls 28-17 after 1--57% fg Gasol with 11pts
Jumbo package of Gasol, Gibson and Mirotic - almost 21 feet of problems for the Knicks.
Bulls 23-13...3rd straight game Gasol has scored 10 or more in opening quarter 2:42 left 1st
Gasol has very little work to do on defense against a frontcourt of D-League talent.
Mirotic had a big advantage coming from Europe, where they let big men be basketball players.
Just think Kaminsky has same skills as Mirotic -- score inside, shoot 3s, put the ball on floor and play with speed.
Good win for the Bulls ... next game Wednesday in Milwaukee.
17-9 Bulls --6:56 left 1st Bulls 8 of 10
Bargnani scores, Bulls PA announces his name. Fan next to me: “That’s who he is, I knew him from somewhere"
Bulls and Knicks underway. We’ll see how long this lasts before a TKO is called

In some ways, Frank Kaminsky might be a better comparison to Nikola Mirotic than anyone in the NBA right now.
Today is 25th anniversary of Jordan's career-high 69-point game and 20th anniversary of his 55-point "double nickel" outing vs. Knicks.
Bulls forward Doug McDermott (back soreness) is out tonight versus the New York Knicks.
Bulls starters - Dunleavy, Gasol, Noah, Butler, Brooks - Knicks starters: [get ready to Google] Thomas, Amundson, Bargnani, Galloway, Larkin
Derek Fisher on Gasol:"You combine his All-Star,potential Hall of Fame skills with a guy who really is just about team success, that’s good"
I see Frank Kaminsky is getting the Laettner treatment from the officials
If Bulls defeat Knicks, the Knicks will set a franchise record with their 60th loss.
Does Mirotic think he should win ROY? "I don’t know. And I don’t think about this. The most important thing is how the team is working."
McDermott (back) out. Rose participated in shootaround, but no change.
Thibodeau said McDermott had setback with back issues and will be inactive vs. Knicks.
Trice was huge for MSU. Not sure if they can pull it off against Italian restaurant Ricky, but been a good run thus far
My Final Four bracket is far from perfect, but I did get ALL EIGHT of my Elite 8 correct. I'm on a roll!
Some good offense in this MSU/OU game. Yeah, good and terrible
Dawson Disappearing act?
Where’s the foul there? MSU getting the early whistles?
Michigan State big guys aren’t even looking at the rim when getting offensive rebounds. Playing for the three-ball
This might be over quick, Spartans
Knicks at 14-59 in Chicago Sat. Join us on the Bulls Radio Network ESPN 1000 6:30CT
Are they using real refs in this Duke-Utah game?
It was a pleasure getting to know Hot Rod over the years..saw him twice per season and he was always approachable with a sense of humor .
4 Tops performing at halftime at MSG....like they're at least 80 plus of age and they're putting on a better show than the Knicks.
Wizards signed Will Bynum to 10-day contract, per Washington Post. Chicago native, long-time Piston played in China this year.
Rose (right knee) is out. McDermott (back soreness) is questionable. Vs New York
I wonder if these guys play too much and don’t give their bodies a chance to truly rest in the offseason…along with KD coming back too early
DePaul and St. John's looking for head basketball coaches .
Dunleavy's wry sense of humor prevails. Asked about Rose in non-contact practice: "He looks good. Unfortunately the games are full contact."
Derrick Rose didn't go through contact practice today, per Thibs. Hinted maybe next week it could happen
Thibodeau said Rose likely cleared for contact next week. Bulls have 3 offdays between Knicks and Bucks.
