Watch Knicks vs Bulls Online Basketball Game 2013

The New York Knicks have a shot at opening the 2013-14 NBA schedule with two consecutive wins, but they will need to drop the Derrick Rose-led Chicago Bulls in order to do so. Chicago looked rusty against the Heat in their opener on Tuesday, so look for them to play a tighter game tonight when watch New York Knicks vs Chicago Bulls online free live streaming NBA on TNT Thursday night basketball game by following the links presented below.

Rose would just assume forget his big return to the league after sitting out an entire season. With emotions pumped up to the max, he and his Bulls teammates showed little energy against the Heat as they fell 107-95. The game wasn’t even that close as the Heat controlled the tempo early and literally ran a lethargic Bulls squad right out of the building.

Instead of putting up the big MVP-type numbers that Bulls fans are expecting, Derrick Rose was anything but special in his first game back. He scored only 12 points on 4 of 15 shooting and never looked entirely comfortable being back out on the court. Some drives to the rim were impressive and brought back memories of the Rose of old, but he’s still got some rust to chip away at before the big numbers start to fill the stat sheet.

When it comes to playing against the NY Knicks, there’s no other team the Chicago star would rather face. Rose has averaged 27.8 points per game over his last nine against the Knicks and 24.7 over the course of his career. He’s especially sharp playing at home, as has the team having won 20 of the past 23 there against New York, and will have his fans behind him and cheering on his home debut when we watch Knicks vs Bulls online free live stream on TNT for a potential Rose explosion of points.

The Knicks 2013-14 season began last night and got off to a tremendously hot start as they built a 25-point lead over the Bucks. That lead would eventually evaporate until Carmelo Anthony took control of the game down the stretch and helped steer NY to a 90-83 opening night win.

As Rose plays well against the Knicks, so does Anthony against the Bulls. He has average a huge 35.2 points per game in his last five contests against Chicago and will be called upon for a big scoring output tonight on TNT live NBA basketball online with J.R. Smith sitting the first five games for violating the league’s anti-drug rules.

The Knicks got a scare against the Bucks when Raymond Felton injured his hamstring. The injury appears to be minor and Felton is expected to play tonight. He scored 18 points in the opener so that’s a lof of offense that would be missing if Felton struggles due to the injury.

Tonight’s first Thursday Night NBA game between the 1-0 New York Knicks and 0-1 Chicago Bulls will tip off at 8pm EST / 5pm PST and be televised on TNT. Be sure to check your local listings for what channel TNT is on your cable or satellite system.

The Bulls were embarrassed on national television on opening night so I expect Derrick Rose and his teammates to come out hungry and win big over the Knicks on TNT tonight.
