Bulls and Knicks NBA prediction:
The Bulls play the Knicks for the second night in a row. Chicago will be without two regulars (Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevich) and could be without two more (Kobe White and Patrick Williams) depending on their injuries on Wednesday. The Bulls were soundly beaten by the 76ers on Tuesday night, 110-97, and could be in for another tough night at Madison Square Garden.
The Knicks won their first game on New Year's Day with new small forward OG Anunoby in the lineup. They beat the Timberwolves 112-106 at home on Monday. Anunoby was instrumental in the victory as he had 17 points, 6 rebounds and 2 steals in 35 minutes of play. I think New York can keep the momentum going and beat the Bulls by double digits at home on Wednesday night.
