Tonight’s contest in Chicago will be the first of a three-game road trip for the Knicks, and they’ll play six of their next seven games on the road and 16 of 20 away from home.
2. KANTER COMING OFF MONSTER GAME
In the Christmas Day loss to the Sixers, Enes Kanter had an unbelievable game, as he scored a season-high 31 points and tied a career-best with 22 rebounds.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Kanter joined Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell and Bob Lanier as the only players with a 30-20 game on Christmas.

4. BULLS RUNNING
Though Chicago is only 11-22 on the season, the Bulls have been playing much better basketball as of late, winning eight of their last 10, and five straight on their home court.
