Porzingis cut it to 120-119 with a three-pointer with 7.5 seconds remaining. The Knicks held the Mavericks to an offensive rebounding percentage of 15.5 (below the 23.0 mark opponents have averaged against NY this season) and an effective field goal percentage of 0.413 (below their season average of 0.523). The Knicks are 0-3 against Chicago (14-28). Lopez finished the night with 20 points.
He kept shooting, and eventually hit the shot that put the Bulls on top for good. 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). According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Knicks are a 4.5-point favorite on the spread line. Westbrook was 15 of 23 from the field, while his teammates were 17 of 56 (30.3 percent).
Tim Hardaway Jr. was a full participant in practice on Tuesday, and his return is imminent, though NY has not given him a specific return date.
Kent Bazemore scored 14 points and Ersan Ilyasova had 10 points and nine rebounds for the Hawks, who never trailed after the first quarter.
His absence will be a boon to the Knicks' low-post game, which has lacked production of late as Kristaps Porzingis' scoring has dropped. But when they take the home hardwood it has been a completely different story as so far they have compiled an impressive 15-7 mark at the Garden.
When allowing below 100 points, Chicago is 5-5 and NY is 9-1. Chicago must also step up its defensive effort along the 3-point arc, especially whenever Porzingis or former Bulls sharpshooter Doug McDermott linger around the bend.
Is there any other way to explain being able to bank home the eventual game-winning basket on a night he shot 4-for-18? Denzel Valentine and Markkanen made a couple of threes to make it a four point game at halftime.

Chicago rebounded it, but Dunn missed over Jack.
The result may have been disappointing, but Jack did everything in his power to lead the Knicks past the Bulls.
Michael Beasley, who missed the previous game with a sprained left ankle, led the Knicks with 26 points.
In Denver, Dennis Schroder had 19 points and 10 assists, Taurean Prince scored 16 and Atlanta topped the hosts to end a 10-game road losing streak. 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 Bulls' average margin of defeat in their last five games has been 11.6, up from 6.3 for the season. Entering this season, the Knicks had beaten Chicago in five straight head-to-head meetings.
