Rookie guard Immanuel Quickley caught fire in the fourth quarter as the New York Knicks quickly returned to the win column.
The Knicks (35-28) notched their 10th win in 11 games after taming the Chicago Bulls, 113-94, Wednesday night at the Garden.
Quickley dropped 11 quick points in a 15-2 Knicks run at the start of the fourth quarter. The Bulls never recovered.
By the time Quickley went out after picking up his fifth foul, the Knicks had transformed a precarious one-point lead to a dozen, 91-79, with 6:39 left.
The Knicks stepped on the pedal with Nerlens Noel anchoring their interior defense and Julius Randle bringing them home with his seventh 30-point game in their last nine.
Quickley finished with 13 points off the bench. Noel was all over the court with five shot blocks and four steals that went with eight points, eight rebounds, and three assists.
Randle had a game-high 34 points on 12-of-23 shooting. He added seven boards and three assists. RJ Barrett was also efficient with 22 points on 9-of-15 shots. He also stuffed the stats sheet with seven rebounds, six assists, two steals, and one block.
