NBA FREE PICK: Take New York. According to latest NBA trends, Bulls are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game. Knicks are 11-3-1 ATS in their last 15 games playing on 0 days rest, 16-5-1 ATS in their last 22 games following a S.U. loss, 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games vs. a team with a winning road record,  31-12 ATS in their last 43 home games and 15-7 ATS in their last 22 vs. NBA Central.

Carmelo Anthony returns to the lineup for the Knicks, who certainly missed him against Indiana. Without him, the Knicks put up just 77 points in a loss to Indiana, shot 35% from the field and 20% from beyond the arc.  Anthony, who is averaging 29ppg and 6.1rpg, served a one-game suspension for his attempts to confront Boston's Kevin Garnett after a home loss to the Celtics on Monday. The Bulls are coming off a bad home loss to Milwaukee, 104-96, giving 6 against a team that just fired their head coach (Scott Skiles). The Knicks will get a big game from J.R. Smith, who is averaging 17.1ppg off the bench. Amar'e Stoudemire (9.8ppg) is getting better each night returning from knee surgery. Expect the Knicks to bounce back from a rough loss the night before as they get a lift from Anthony.
