Chicago Bulls vs. New York Knicks game preview, injury report, lineups

[thanks to BoozerDPOY (HEY! GET DAT!) for today's game preview. Answered the bell last-minute -yfbb] Oh hey! The Bulls play the Knicks today!

The next trip up the court, Utahs star small forward played against the shot clock, waited until the last possible second and hit a 3-pointer. Much has been made about Haywards progression this season. But with each passing game, it is clear he is becoming more and more comfortable with the idea and the challenge of being the ...
