Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- Bill Cartwright and Jalen Rose know what it takes to win on the road. Unfortunately, the rest of the Chicago Bulls are at a loss. In a complete turnaround from 24 hours earlier, the Bulls dropped their 17th straight road game with a dispirited 98-86 setback to the New York Knicks, who took total advantage of being at home. Allan Houston scored 26 points and Kurt Thomas added 24 and 13 rebounds for New York, which appeared lethargic and out of sync in Monday's 101-94 loss at Chicago. Back in the friendlier surroundings of Madison Square Garden, it was the Knicks who looked sharp and the Bulls who looked lost. Chicago quickly fell behind and trailed by as many as 21 points. It shot less than 38 percent (31-of-82) from the field, committed 20 turnovers and displayed very little poise. "Where we are right now, I feel like we play good basketball (at home)," said Cartwright, who has five championship rings as a player and coach with the Bulls. "We play solid for the most part. We don't turn the ball over. We do the right thing - we look to attack inside and try to establish ourselves. On the road, we don't do that." "I think it's a testament to a young team," said Rose, who has an NBA Finals under his belt and a load of experience to impart to his youthful teammates. "When you play at home, everything kind of works in your favor. You're in a comfort zone and you feel confident when you take the court. It's the opposite when you get on the road. Things don't work in your favor. You're sleeping in a hotel, you're eating room service, the crowd's against you." Nowhere was that better illustrated than in the games of Tyson Chandler. At home on Monday, the second-year 7-footer had eight points and a career-high 19 rebounds. On the road Tuesday, he had four points, five rebounds, four turnovers and a technical foul in 15 minutes. "I was on the floor last night," Chandler said. "Tonight I couldn't stay on the floor." Since upsetting Boston at the FleetCenter on opening night, the Bulls (14-24) have not won on the road. They have dropped 17 straight away from home, 11 by double digits. The club record is 25 straight road losses, established two seasons ago. "We have to understand what it takes to win out here and you're not going to have that same support you have at home," Cartwright said. "You have to buckle down, you have to guard hard, you can't expect any calls. You have to be a lot more solid than we were." The Bulls have seven players on their active roster born in 1978 or later. They start a rookie point guard in Jay Williams, a second-year shooting guard in Trenton Hassell and a second-year center in Chandler. With the exception of swingman Eddie Robinson, all of the reserves have been in the league for less than three years. "That's the tough thing about being on a young team," Rose said. "The guys really want to learn. The majority of our guys haven't played over five years in this league and a lot of them don't have the pedigree and the understanding of what it takes. We're learning on the fly." When asked what it would take for the Bulls to win on the road, third-year forward Marcus Fizer said, "I have no clue. We're trying our best, but our best ain't getting one." The Knicks (14-22) gained a split of the home-and-home series, winning the finale of a back-to-back set for the first time in eight tries. They also evened the all-time series at 85-85 and improved to 10-11 at home. "I think the home court is more meaningful if you have teams that are very similar," Knicks coach Don Chaney said. "I think when you're at home and you don't have that dominant factor, home court plays a big role." Rose scored 23 points and fellow veteran forward Donyell Marshall added 22 and 14 rebounds for the Bulls, who had won the last three meetings between the clubs. Chicago's only lead was 2-0 before New York immediately ran off eight straight points. Houston and Latrell Sprewell scored eight points apiece in the first quarter, which ended with the Knicks holding a 27-21 lead. The Bulls never got any closer. During the period, Chandler sat down with two fouls and a technical. Fizer came on for him but took a seat a minute later with his second foul. "I just waved the call off becuase I thought it was a bad call," Chandler said. "I didn't say anything; I just waved." Shandon Anderson provided a spark with 11 of his 12 points in the second period, and the Knicks took a 56-48 lead into the locker room. Thomas made 12-of-21 shots. He scored 10 points in the third period, including a jumper that made it 80-63 with a minute to go. On consecutive possessions, Williams rushed a fast break and turned the ball over. He missed all seven of his shots and committed four turnovers. "They're still a very young team," Thomas said. "There's a lot of youth in the NBA. In another two, three, four years, those guys will understand what to do on the road and down the stretch in games." A 3-pointer by Houston and a free throw by Anderson gave New York its largest lead at 86-65 with 9:46 to go. Rose and Crawford rallied Chicago within 91-84 with 3:34 remaining, but Rose missed a fadeaway jumper and Houston drilled a 3-pointer to rebuild the lead to 10 points with 2:36 to play. Sprewell scored 16 points for the Knicks, who shot 44 percent (40-of-91) and committed just 11 turnovers. Crawford scored 15 points and Fizer added nine and 12 boards for the Bulls, who held a 54-43 advantage on the glass but could not overcome their inexperience. "Youth probably is a factor," Houston said. "When you're on the road, there's a different emotional level. The other team plays better most of the time because they're more comfortable. And it takes some poise."
