Bulls Vs. Knicks Score Update: Overtime Is Next After Chicago Blows Late Lead

The Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks are going to overtime after regulation ended in a 91-91 tie on Sunday afternoon. The Bulls were losing by double-digits in the first half but came back to take a 91-81 lead with just a few minutes remaining in the game.

Chicago fell apart at that point, though, failing to muster anything on offense to expand the lead. The biggest issue came at the free throw line, though, where both Luol Deng and Derrick Rose missed two shots apiece to extend a three-point lead. On the next play, Carmelo Anthony hit a game-tying shot from ridiculously long distance.

The Bulls had a chance to put the game away in the final seconds, but Rose wasn't able to knock down a buzzer-beater.
