Luol Deng added 17 points for the Bulls, who are 2-0 since Jim Boylan became the interim head coach last week, three days after Scott Skiles was fired. Boylan's first decision was to ask Gordon to give up his starter's role, and it paid off immediately.
Gordon, the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year as a rookie in 2004-05, scored 31 points Friday in a victory over Milwaukee. Sunday, he made 11 of 15 shots in another good outing at Madison Square Garden, not far from where he grew up in Mount Vernon, N.Y.
Zach Randolph shot only 8-of-23, but had 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Knicks, who have lost four straight and fell to 8-21. Nate Robinson led the New York with 19 points.
New York played without leading scorer Jamal Crawford, who bruised his right hand in practice Friday. Fellow starting guard Stephon Marbury was back with the team but not in uniform. He has missed most of the month following his father's death.
