Hello everybody! Whatever holiday you might be celebrating today, have a happy one. Meanwhile, the Knicks are back home this afternoon to face the Bulls. It feels like a pretty big game, eh? Here are some reasons to believe this is a pretty big game:
1. It's nationally televised (on ABC).
2. The Knicks and Bulls are currently positioned to play each other in the first round of the playoffs.
3. The Knicks are currently just half a game ahead of the Bucks and one game behind the Sixers (who play the Celtics today). So, they could drop to ninth with a loss or pull even with Philadelphia if everything goes well.
4. Derrick Rose will play for the Bulls. Amar'e Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin will not play for the Knicks, but Jared Jeffries and Bill Walker will. Will.i.am will not play for either team.
6. Sports. Sports games.
Exciting! So, stop by here to comment along if you're watching and check out Blog a Bull for Chicago things. As always, please do not post photos, .gifs, illegal streams, or chapters of your novel about ceiling fans in the game thread. Tip-off is at 1:00.
