After the New York Knicks win over the Bucks on Sunday, the team is back in Chicago to play the Bulls. It's the second-to-last time the Knicks will play the Bulls, as Chicago will be at MSG on Sunday for the regular-season finale.

The Bulls got the best of the Knicks on Friday in a 108-100 win. Josh Hart was ejected after 11 minutes for a Flagrant 2 foul on Javonte Green. Officials said Hart intentionally kicked Javonte Green in the head. Hart made sure to clap back at Scott Foster for the absurd call.

On Tuesday, you can bet Hart will be sure to keep his limbs to himself. He logged 37 minutes in New York's win over Milwaukee. With the Knicks a game back from the No. 2 seed in the East, every minute of their final four games of the regular season matters.

Chicago is coming off a 113-98 win against Orlando. The Magic have the same record as the Knicks (46-32) but own the tiebreaker over New York. The Bulls were without one of their starters, who is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Knicks.

Chicago holds the No. 9 spot in the East with a 37-41 record, one game ahead of Atlanta at No. 10.
