Bulls Down Knicks 93-79, Force Game 7 Decisive Clash Set for Sunday in New York


Ap, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


They felt the emotional surge from their home crowd in what might have been their final game at Chicago Stadium. Once energized Friday, the Chicago Bulls didn't falter.

The Bulls beat the New York Knicks 93-79 with rebounding, defense and hustle. Now the three-time defending National Basketball Association champions head to Madison Square Garden on Sunday for the deciding Game 7 in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

"We wanted to attack and be aggressive, especially early in the game. Our energy was great," said Bulls guard B.J. Armstrong, who scored 20 points.

The Bulls finished with a 52-35 rebounding edge and were 25 for 31 from the free throw line. The Knicks were 17 of 22 from the foul line. New York was hit with 30 fouls, compared with 17 on Chicago.
