New York, NY (Sports Network) - Luol Deng posted a double-double in a wire-to-
wire victory for the Chicago Bulls, who fought off the New York Knicks,
110-106, in a chippy battle at Madison Square Garden.
During a physical game that featured a combined 50 personal fouls, nine
technicals and four fourth-quarter ejections, Deng scored a team-high 29
points and pulled down 13 rebounds to help Chicago to its sixth win in its
last seven tries against New York.
Joakim Noah totaled 15 points, 12 rebounds and six assists, but was ejected
for picking up his second technical foul after he got tangled up with Tyson
Chandler, who received a double-technical and was also thrown out.
Chandler, Carmelo Anthony and Knicks head coach Mike Woodson were all tossed
from the game within two minutes of each other in the fourth quarter. Anthony
and Woodson each picked up a second technical for arguing with the officials
before Chandler and Noah got into an altercation.
Anthony scored a game-high 29 points and J.R. Smith followed with 26 points
and 10 rebounds for New York, which has lost two of its last three contests.
