Explain how can the Knicks beat Chicago which is leading the Eastern Conference.

Chicago at least by 10 points

Knicks on a losing slide, Chicago riding high. Only problem is all those points. If they can lose by 10 to 76ers in NY, maybe they can lose by 10 in chicago.  Small lean to the home team.

The line is easily explained... if you think Kyle Korver can stop Melo tonight take the Bulls.

Yes, Korver is starting with Deng (bang), Watson and Hamilton all out.

Tough game to cap, the Bull should win at home even w the injuries but but who is going to stop Carmelo tonight?  Even worse, will be the defense that Boozer puts on Amare.  Carlos is known as "The Matador" amongst Bulls fans for his total lack of heart on D. 

These two mismatchs should keep the NY close and the Knicks can't lose every game with this much talent.  I'll take the +8.5 and the Over for these reasons.
