The Chicago Bulls have halted the New York Knicks' five-game winning streak with a 93-85 home win, continuing their home dominance at the United Center.

The Bulls have now won 19 of the last 22 home encounters against the Knicks, who were still without Carmelo Anthony.

Chicago were led by Luol Deng and Marco Belinelli who scored 22 points apiece, improving to 11-8 and strengthening their lead in the Eastern Conference Central Division.

Raymond Felton notched up a game-high 27 points for the Knicks but couldn't drive his side to victory like he did against the Miami Heat.

New York dropped to 14-5 but remain top of the Eastern Conference.

How do you expect the Breakers to perform in this season's Australian NBL?

Last season was a blip, they'll be champions once again

They'll go close to another title, beaten finalists I'd say

Playoffs for sure, but can't see them going any further

Not too excited, they'll miss the playoffs again
