  • Misfiring Kris Dunn, rookie Lauri Markkanen help Bulls top Knicks

The Bulls Thursday (AEDT) endured, survived, stumbled and then triumphed in a wild 122-119 double-overtime victory over the New York Knicks.

This is the Bulls' first win without Nikola Mirotic in the lineup since their November 17, 2017 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.

"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".

"He made me taste raw fish, or raw steak", Markkanen told the Daily News.

There's a lot to like about how the Chicago Bulls played last night.

Utah played without two starters, and second-leading scorer Rodney Hood was ejected in the second half.

Bucks 110, Magic 103: Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 26 points, Khris Middleton added 22 and host Milwaukee beat Orlando, which lost its 15th game in its past 16.

The team closed out a tight game with a win, which is rare.

Hornacek had teased the possibility of playing big at the end of games more. The 20-year-old Arizona product ended the game with a has a career-high 33 points on 10-of-22 shooting line from the field, which includes a spectacular performance from beyond the arc. "He made passes. He had a couple turnovers, but a great all-around game for him".

Chicago Bulls forward Lauri Markkanen revealed Wednesday that the former New York Knicks president made him eat some form of raw meat during a meeting in New York.

The Finnisher closed out the game with a pair of crucial free-throws and proved he has ice in his veins. The 7-foot, 230-pound power forward swished eight 3s to pace the Bulls, who shot 45.9 percent from the field and 45.5 percent from long distance. But they didn't get a shot off. Jack's side-out-of-bounds lob to Beasley hit the rim and time expired. He then zipped an entry feed to a cutting Porzingis for a one-handed stuff for a 112-112 tie to force a second overtime.

Markkanen is going to be a high-end player in the National Basketball Association for years to come. A running bank shot by Kris Dunn gave Chicago a 118-116 lead with 58.7 seconds to go. The game starts at 7:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, January 10, 2018, and will air on NBC Sports Chicago. Until they do, Porzingis' shooting percentage will continue to plummet toward 40 percent. But, it was warranted. Smith, who struggled with his shot, going 5-14 for 11 points, was gracious in his appraisal of Ntilikina but downplayed the comparisons after the two engaged in a demonstrably friendly exchange on the court after the game.

The game reached the second overtime when Porzingis blew past Markkanen in the lane and forged a 112-112 deadlock by making an uncontested dunk moments before time expired.

He kept shooting, and eventually hit the shot that put the Bulls on top for good.

Chicago won both earlier matchups at the United Center.

Dunn's attitude is admirable.

The Knicks have been a much better home team than on the road this season, but they have lost the last two they have played at Madison Square Garden.
