Bulls Vs. Knicks Score Update: Chicago Trails 53-45 At Halftime

The Chicago Bulls stopped the bleeding but they still trail 53-45 at halftime against the New York Knicks on Sunday afternoon. The Bulls trailed 24-6 with just a few minutes left in the first quarter, but they've worked to prevent things from getting any worse.

Unfortunately, the Bulls haven't exactly made great progress in their comeback. Shooting has continued to be an issue, with Chicago making just 37 percent of its shots from the field in the first half, including 1-of-8 shooting from three-point range. The ten turnovers really haven't helped, either, with Derrick Rose being especially wild.

Rose's return was supposed to ignite the Bulls, but the reigning MVP has looked like a shell of himself. Rose has made just one of his six shots thus far, scoring most of his points on free throws, and he's already turned the ball over five times while recording just one assist.

Luol Deng leads the Bulls with 11 points, but he's just 3-of-10 from the field so far. Taj Gibson and Carlos Boozer have added seven points apiece. Carmelo Anthony leads the Knicks with 22 points on 8-of-14 shooting and Landry Fields has added 10 points.
