Bulls go to 3-0 against Knicks

(Continued)

NEW YORK —

“We definitely don’t want to lose. We’ve got to bounce back, take it one day at a time, one game at a time,” Anthony said. “Sunday is our next game, New Orleans, and that’s a game that we have to go get. It’s a must-win.”

Rose is practicing and nearing his return after tearing up his knee in the opener of last season’s playoffs. The Bulls have managed to stay among the top teams in the East without him, and three times have outclassed a Knicks team that has been in or near the conference lead all season.

“We’ve showed it this year, when we really focus and lock in, whoever we play we’ve been able to play with them, all the top teams, play them close whether we win or lose,” Deng said. “We know that when we show up, and you know, stick to the game plan, we can really play with anyone in this league.”

Richard Hamilton had 14 points as Chicago won for the fourth time in five games.

J.R. Smith shot 4 of 17 for his 13 points as the Knicks lost for the fifth time in seven games. Tyson Chandler grabbed 18 rebounds.

The Bulls held the Knicks to then-season lows of 85 points and 32 percent shooting in an eight-point victory in the first meeting, a game Anthony missed because of a finger injury.

Hawks 103, Jazz 95: Devin Harris scored a season-high 24 points and Atlanta rallied from 15 points down in the second half.

Randy Foye had 25 points to lead Utah, which had won four of five but was denied its first back-to-back road wins of the season. Al Jefferson had 23 points and 10 rebounds and Paul Milsap had 20 points and 13 rebounds for the Jazz.

The Hawks, who trailed 75-60 in the third quarter, played from behind before taking their first lead of the second half on consecutive baskets by Al Horford. The second basket by Horford, set up by Josh Smith’s pass, gave Atlanta a 94-92 lead with 2:44 remaining.
