The Knicks (3-1) and Bulls (4-0) meet for the first time in 2021-22
The New York Knicks have a chance to leap frog into first place in the Eastern Conference with a win over the Chicago Bulls on Thursday. Obviously, it’s early in the season but the Knicks and Bulls are both off to strong starts.
The Knicks dismantled the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday to end a 15-game losing streak to Philly. Meanwhile, the Bulls are taking care of business against bad teams (Pistons twice, Pelicans, and Raptors).
With the Knicks and Bulls looking to make some noise in the Eastern Conference, this will serve as a good litmus test for both teams.
Let’s take a closer look at the broadcast information, odds, injury report, and projected starting lineups.
