Chicago Bulls at New York Knicks preview for January 10 Video

Kristaps Porzingis finished with 24 points, including a dunk at the buzzer to force the second overtime.

"We got a date", LaVine told reporters on Tuesday. But they continue to have trouble against the Bulls.

Chicago comes into the contest with records of 14-27 straight up (SU) and 22-16-3 against the spread (ATS).

"Against a team you're equal to, when you have a lead at home that's when you've got to put the hammer down", Jeff Hornacek said.

Unfortunately, the Bulls have defeated the Knicks in three consecutive games-a streak that has many pondering if it's time to go back to the drawing board. But he was scoreless in the overtime periods. Cousins was 2 of 10 from the field entering the fourth, but scored 14 points in the final quarter.

Jack finished with a triple-double: 16 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. The Bulls have lost five of their last six games and lost its last road game by 41 points at Indiana. "He made passes. He had a couple turnovers, but a great all-around game for him". Robin Lopez was huge against the Knicks as he had two dunks in the second overtime. They rank 5th at avoiding errors (turnover percentage of 13.1 percent), while the Knicks force the ninth-fewest turnovers in the National Basketball Association (opponents' turnover percentage of 13.5 percent). Beasley missed twice on the ensuing possession. Despite the loss, Porzingis was the game's leading scorer with 23 points.

"The mid-range, that's my shot, and I kept getting to my spots", Dunn said. Jack inbounded the ball to himself off Dunn's back to score a tying basket.

Holiday made two free throws with 13.9 seconds left for a 120-116 lead.

Tyreke Evans scored 28 points, including a pair of free throws with 5.9 seconds left that helped the Memphis Grizzlies beat the New Orleans Pelicans 105-102. I wasn't going to try it, honestly.

Ekpe Udoh scored 16 points and Joe Johnson had 16 off the bench for the Jazz, who had lost 13 of 16 in between meetings with Washington. Damian Lillard made a layup on the other end, but Paul cut through three defenders to make an off-balance layup to push the lead to 113-106. The Knicks rebounded and called time with 4.8 seconds left. Porzingis had 24 points on 11-of-24 shooting as the Knicks shot 50 percent. Porzingis came around to a double screen and was wide open.

Jimmy Butler scored 26 points, grabbed seven rebounds and had eight assists for the Minnesota Timberwolves in a 104-98 win against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

On the next trip, Markkanen misfired on a three-pointer. The refs initially ruled Knicks' ball.

Kris Dunn had a rough game as he had multiple chances to win the game for the Bulls. The Knicks rank fourth in offensive rebounding percentage (25.5 percent), while Chicago ranks second in defensive rebounding percentage (81.0 percent). The Knicks rebounded and called timeout with four-tenths of a second left. By the time Kanter met Markkanen at the rim, it was too late.
