Knicks to see future of East in Cleveland

NEW YORK -- LeBron James' much-anticipated return to the Cleveland Cavaliers will have an All-Star Game feel to it. Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons will perform pregame. Comedian Kevin Hart will provide the jokes. And then the New York Knicks hope the laughs won't continue after they jump ball. The Knicks looked like a joke in their season-opening 104-80 loss to the Chicago Bulls Wednesday. Only two Knicks players (Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire) reached double figures in scoring as the team managed to turn the triangle into a punchline on Twitter.

Bulls 104, Knicks 80: Bench dominates

NEW YORK -- Taj Gibson and the new Bench Mob changed the pace of the Chicago Bulls' season-opening 104-80 victory over the New York Knicks on Wednesday. With the Bulls struggling to find a rhythm, Gibson and veteran guard Aaron Brooks checked in and found a way to get to the rim and get a consistent offense going. Pau Gasol made a nice first impression with 21 points and 11 rebounds, but Gibson led the way for a second unit that is hungry to prove itself.

Derrick Rose meets Melo, the player he didn’t want

Derrick Rose has said all the right things since Carmelo Anthony opted to return to the New York Knicks rather than sign with the Bulls as a free agent during the summer.

Rose not worried about doubters ... or Melo

NEW YORK -- Derrick Rose wants to prove all of his doubters wrong, but he's trying not to let all the doubts about his game get into his head. As Rose gets set to open a new season against the New York Knicks on Wednesday night (ESPN, 8 ET), the former MVP sounds excited about being back on the floor after playing in just 10 games over the past two seasons because of two serious knee injuries. "I can't get caught up in that," he said of the doubters.

Jimmy Butler out for Bulls’ opener

“Next man up,’’ has come out of the mouth of Tom Thibodeau way too many times the past few years. Whether if it’s been injuries to Derrick Rose, Carlos Boozer, Luol Deng or Joakim Noah, the Bulls coach has been very consistent with that mentality.

Story of Bulls’ season: Can Derrick Rose do this?

RICK TELANDER: Whatever the Knicks might become this year as Phil brings the triangle offense out of the dustbin, this game is about the Bulls. Who are they? How will the new guys play together? How will coach Tom Thibodeau handle them? And, above all — like a question from the spirit mind of Dr. Naismith himself — how will Derrick Rose be?

Bulls can afford to be patient with Rose

NEW YORK -- Tom Thibodeau defends harder than his team does on most nights when it comes to certain topics. The most notable example of this over the past three years is in the way the veteran coach has generally protected Derrick Rose as the fragile superstar tries to make his way back from yet another knee injury. Thibodeau has always publicly stood behind the decisions Rose has made in regards to his body, even if he was frustrated that his best player wasn't on the floor.

Butler (left thumb) questionable for opener

CHICAGO -- Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler remains questionable for Wednesday night's regular-season opener against the New York Knicks because of sprained ligaments in his thumb. Butler did not practice on Tuesday, but he did continue taking jumpers with a taped up thumb. "I feel better," Butler said. "Go put some ice on it here now and see how it feels in the morning." Butler initially injured the thumb in a preseason game against the Charlotte Hornets on Oct.
