New York doesn't play today, Milwaukee sits 1 game back of 8th 2.5 back of 7th 5 back of 6th place Orlando (who is freefalling fast)
I love how ESPN was showing the Knicks/Bulls highlight like it was some sort of late round playoff preview, like two heavyweights battling. It was a huge upset, plain and simple, there's no way that if the Bucks beat Chicago they'd cover it the same way. ESPN just wants the Knicks to be good, can't wait to see them miss the playoffs and get all the coverage while the Bucks get in almost unnoticed.
On the other hand, Philly is falling fast, right now Philly and New York are in a 7th place tie just one game ahead of ninth place Milwaukee, definitely not out of the question to pass both of them.
Nice to see Monta playing better lately, he's a bit inconsistant, but man, late in the game he has that ability to just take over, kind of similar to John Salmons in '09-'10
