3 BACK FOR HOME COOKING

The Knicks return to their home court where they are a solid 15-7 this season.

4 BEASLEY QUESTIONABLE

Michael Beasley talks with Rebecca Haarlow about the extent of his injury after not playing in the Knicks win over the Mavs.

After not playing in Sunday’s win over Dallas, Michael Beasley was limited in Tuesday’s practice and is listed as “questionable” to return against the Bulls.

Beas, who turned 29 Tuesday, has been terrific as of late, putting up back-to-back 20-point performances off the bench in the two games prior to the injury.

5 JACK ON THE ATTACK

Jarret Jack gets the walk-off interview with Rebecca Haarlow after the Knicks' road victory in Dallas, explaining how they won the physical game and his now-guaranteed contract.

The Knicks guaranteed Jarrett Jack‘s contract for the remainder of the season earlier this week and the point guard is paying dividends.

In the last five games, Jack is averaging 11 points and 5.7 assists, including a strong 12-point, eight-assist night in Sunday’s win over Dallas.
