(CHICAGO) – Javonte Green threw down a dunk so vicious his teammate got a technical for celebrating on the sideline. It was that kind of night for him. Green set career highs with 25 points and 13 rebounds, Ayo Dosunmu scored 24 and the Chicago Bulls beat the New York Knicks 108-100 on Friday night. DeMar DeRozan had 20 points and 10 assists while Nikola Vucevic added 16 points and 13 rebounds. Andre Drummond had 10 points and 16 rebounds. The Bulls overcame a 35 point and 11 assist effort by Jalen Brunson to win the first of three meetings between the two teams over the final 10 days of the regular season. Ninth-place Chicago leads Atlanta by a game in the Eastern Conference. The Bulls, who own the head-to-head tiebreaker, would host a play-in game if they finish with identical records.
