Chicago Bulls win a wild one against the New York Knicks

With 6.8 seconds left Markkanen made the two clinching free throws and Jarrett Jack missed a desecration runner.

Without a timeout, the Knicks were forced to go the length of the court, and Jarrett Jack missed a potential tying 3-pointer with 2.8 seconds remaining.

Rookie forward Lauri Markkanen, who has drawn comparisons to Kristaps Porzingis, put on a show in the Bulls' 122-119 double-overtime victory over the Knicks, notching 33 points and 10 rebounds.

In Charlotte, Harrison Barnes had 25 points and 11 rebounds, Yogi Ferrell made seven 3-pointers and scored 22 points and Dallas fended off fatigue to beat a fresh Hornets team. He also grabbed 10 rebounds and made all five free throws. The Knicks couldn't steal the inbounds so they purposely fouled and Justin Holiday made two at the line with 13.9 seconds left to make it a four-point game.

At one point in the second quarter the Bulls missed seven straight shots.

It's the sixth straight win for the Heat.

Who the Trends Like: Chicago is 0-4 ATS in its last four meetings in NY and 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings overall. Part of that equation is Tim Hardaway Jr.'s absence and the Knicks point guards not being prolific 3-point shooters (or being able to draw the D and kick out for open 3s), but the other part is the coaching.

The Bulls rank 16th in points off turnovers allowed per game (16.5) while the Knicks rank 25th (18.4).

Grizzlies 105, Pelicans 102: Tyreke Evans scored 28 points, including a pair of free throws with 5.9 seconds left that helped Memphis beat New Orleans. Robin Lopez had 20 points and Holiday 16 points. Moore had 16 points and Rajon Rondo had 14. The Wizards were routed 116-69 in Utah on December 4. David Nwaba then played strong defense to block Beasley's shot in the lane. The Wizards were embarrassed 116-69 in Utah on December 4.

John Wall had 35 points and 11 assists for Washington, but committed eight of its 23 turnovers.

Not only will the Bulls be without LaVine, who was acquired during the offseason in the trade that landed Minnesota former Chicago star Jimmy Butler, but they might be without the services of fourth-year power forward Nikola Mirotic, whom head coach Fred Hoiberg said was battling a stomach virus.

Markkanen was fantastic all game.

The rookie added 10 rebounds. Westbrook was 15 of 23 from the field, while his teammates were 17 of 56 (30.3 percent).

The Bulls moved to 15-27 after having lost five of six. Bobby Portis led the Bulls with 22 points off the bench while Kris Dunn and Denzel Valentine each finished with 19. Ellington was one of three Miami players with 15 points. Kemba Walker had 41 points for the Hornets.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 26 points, Khris Middleton added 22 and the Milwaukee Bucks turned up their defensive intensity after a porous first quarter to beat the Orlando Magic.
