Bulls Vs. Knicks Score Update: Chicago Trails 31-19 After One Quarter

With Derrick Rose returning to the lineup, the Chicago Bulls were supposed to get things back on track on Sunday. Instead, things looked worse than they have a while as Chicago trails 31-19 against the New York Knicks after one quarter at the Madison Square Garden.

Chicago has struggled lately on offense, but Rose's return was supposed to fix what ailed the Bulls' attack. Instead, Chicago looked utterly overwhelmed by New York's defense in the first quarter, shooting a startling 6-of-20 from the field after finishing the quarter strong.

Rose hasn't even played well, having more turnovers (three) than points (two) in the first quarter. Meanwhile, the Knicks have had little trouble scoring against the Bulls, who simply don't look like themselves on either side of the court today. The Knicks are shooting 13-of-22 from the field so far with assists on 11 of those baskets.

Luol Deng leads the Bulls with six points, but he's just 2-of-8 from the field. Carmelo Anthony leads the Knicks with 12 points on 5-of-5 shooting and Landry Fields has eight points on 4-of-5 shooting.
