For those keeping an eye on lottery odds: the Knicks' win tonight moved them 3 games ‘behind' Chicago in the race for the NBA's 8th-worst record. They are percentage points ‘ahead' of the Lakers in the race for the 9th worst record. Competition for 9th worst record between NYK, CHA & LAL is tight. A team can fall no further than three spots back in the lottery.

Knicks snap an 8-game losing streak with a win in Orlando. Trey Burke led New York with 26 points on 12-for-22 shooting and tied Tim Hardaway for a team-high with six assists. Frank Ntilikina played 29 minutes and Emmanuel Mudiay started and played 22 as the Knicks began to look at their younger players. Veteran Jarrett Jack didn't play against the Magic.

A spirited first half from the Bulls. They lead 69-67 at halftime. Bobby Portis leads everybody with 21 points. Bulls showed a lot of fight to crawl back from an 18 point deficit. They seem to be motivated playing the role of underdog with veterans Robin Lopez and Justin Holiday not dressing for this game.

Trey Burke has been the best among the Knicks' three young guards tonight. He gave NYK a lift in the first half with 14 points off the bench. Starter Emmanuel Mudiay distributed the ball well but the Knicks struggled defensively during his time on the floor, getting outscored by 12 points.

The Knicks' lineup change - starting Emmanuel Mudiay - hasn't helped its perimeter defense. Orlando has hit nine of its first ten threes in the first quarter and has a four-point lead.
