Bulls vs Knicks Prediction & Pick

The Bulls' physicality turned out to be the difference on Friday as they constantly searched for contact on offense. It ended with Chicago going 30-for-36 from the free throw line. However, it's going to be tougher to excel with that strategy this time around given Sims' presence in the paint.

New York enters this one with all the momentum. The Knicks shot 48.7% from the floor during their first game and only turned the ball over 12 times. Five different players scored in double digits, all of whom are likely fighting for bench roles this upcoming NBA season. That cannot be overlooked.

I'll back a Knicks team filled with talent to cover the -5.5 spread here (-104).
