Chicago Bulls vs. New York Knicks: Postgame Grades and Analysis
USA TODAY Sports

In a battle between two of the Eastern Conference's elite, the Chicago Bulls defeated the New York Knicks by a score of 110-106.

The most dominant four-point win in NBA history.

It was a night in which Carmelo Anthony, Mike Woodson, Tyson Chandler and Joakim Noah were all ejected. J.R. Smith joined them by fouling out.

As for the game itself, Luol Deng finished with 29 points and 13 rebounds for Chicago. Their defense smothered the Knicks for 48 minutes and did not allow anyone but Anthony and Smith to get started offensively.

The refs let them play and lost control. The Knicks, however, displayed immaturity in not responding to adversity.

Knicks play-by-play announcer Mike Breen said it best:

"The New York Knicks have to stop arguing these calls. Even though they've had a legitimate beef, there has to come a point where you stop complaining and just play."

Something NYK failed to do.

So how do we grade this debacle?
