Knicks Take Down The Big Bad Bulls And Ruin Joakim Noah Night To Seize First Place In The Eastern Conference

"You can never start looking at the playoff picture too early" - Red Auerbach, Pat Riley, and John Naismith (Probably)

HOW WE FEELING THIBS?

Same, Thibs. Same. 

That was quite an enjoyable game for about two hours before it turned into every other Knicks game in the history of the Knicks. Not the best shooting night for Julius Randle, who finished an assist short of a triple double and two Bulls points short of a bunch of Knicks fans losing their minds on Twitter about him not being able to close things out when it mattered. 

Of course the end of game offense still could use some work. But I've seen the Knicks lose way too many games like that to complain after a win on the road to an undefeated team. Kemba again led the team in scoring, Joakim Noah Night was ruined, and Mitch survived his daily potential devastating injury scare (which admittedly was pretty badass since he Zion'd himself).

Add that all up and I chalk tonight up as a massive W since it looks like Knicks vs. Bulls is #back, which just feels right even if I have to hate my brothers in Barstool Chicago the four nights a year they see red against my Knicks. 

Hey, it's time to push some merch!

If you ain't down with that, I got two words for ya...
