Bulls trounce Knicks, 122-119, in double overtime

Markkanen was one of the players former Knicks president Phil Jackson expressed interest in when reportedly shopping Porzingis ahead of the 2017 draft. "I'm just happy to be able to go back". You get those butterflies and that anxious feeling, about to go out and do what I do again.

Michael Beasley made his first five shots and led the Knicks with 26 points and 12 rebounds. Kristaps Porzingis finished with 24 points, including a dunk at the buzzer to force the second OT.

Bryan had a special guest column for The Knicks Wall this week, where he discussed the below-average job Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek has done this season.

The third loss was the most troubling of all, as the Knicks fell 122-119 in double overtime, despite saving itself from defeat with clutch plays at the end of the fourth quarter and the first overtime. Wednesday night, he was instrumental in a double overtime win over the Knicks, going off for 33 points while hitting eight three-pointers and finishing one monster dunk. He also grabbed 10 rebounds and made all five free throws. At age 29, he is the second-youngest player behind LeBron James to reach the 20,000 mark.

Rockets 121, Trail Blazers 112: Chris Paul scored a season-high 37 points, Eric Gordon added 30 and Houston withstood a late run by Portland. Kris Dunn, along with Jerian Grant, David Nwaba, Justin Holiday and Denzel Valentine will need to be in attack mode throughout the game and aggressively look drive the ball deep into the paint to create confusion for the Knicks' defense.

In Indianapolis, Goran Dragic had a 20-point performance and Wayne Ellington made the decisive 3-pointer with 23.2 seconds left, helping Miami fend off Indiana's late push.

Victor Oladipo scored 26 points and Lance Stephenson provided a late boost of energy that almost allowed IN to erase a 10-point deficit IN the final 9:57. Markannen was fouled intentionally with 6.8 seconds left and he sank both free throws for the final points of the game.

Now, the hard work begins as he attempts to rebuild Nebraska's program to where it was during his playing career. Neither Nick Saban or Kirby Smart will admit it, but they both have to be glad they don't have to play UCF .

For the Pelicans, DeMarcus Cousins had 29 points and eight rebounds. The Wizards were routed 116-69 in Utah on December 4.

Porzingis sank a 3-pointer with 7.5 seconds remaining.

Markkanen was fantastic all game.

Russell Westbrook had 38 points and 10 rebounds for the Thunder. Meanwhile, the Knicks are 13-5 ATS in their last 18 home games, 9-4 ATS in their last 13 home games against a team with a losing road record and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games playing on two days' rest. After a hot start though, wins have been few and far between.

Courtney Lee contributed 16 as did Jack, who added 10 assists and 10 rebounds for his second career triple-double.

Pistons 114, Nets 80: Andre Drummond scored 22 points and grabbed 20 rebounds, Tobias Harris had 22 points, and visiting Detroit led by as many as 40 points in blowing past Brooklyn.
