The Knicks continue their home stand tonight, looking to keep up the momentum they earned against the Nets, as they take on the Chicago Bulls. This is the first time the Bulls will play at MSG this season. The Knicks are 0-1 against the Bulls this season, losing in Chicago, without Carmelo, 93-85 on December 8th.

Steve Novak, out with the flu on Wednesday, will play tonight. Rasheed Wallace and Marcus Camby are out once again tonight with foot injuries.
