The Bulls may have reached a new low Thursday night, but Derrick Rose reached new highs.
Rose soared in for his first dunk of the 2015-16 season midway through the second quarter, helping the Bulls in their attempt to come back from what was a nine-point first quarter deficit to the Knicks.
Rose continued his stellar play since the All-Star break, scoring 30 points and handing out three assists in 39 minutes. But the Bulls couldn't get any stops defensively, resulting in a 106-94 loss in New York.
With the loss the Bulls move 1.5 games behind the idle Detroit Pistons for the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference, and two games behind the seventh seeded Indiana Pacers.
The Bulls are struggling down the stretch, but the former MVP is playing the best basketball of the year at the right time.

On Friday ESPN revealed that the next film in their award-winning 30 for 30 series will focus on the life of former Bull and Hall of Fame forward Dennis Rodman.
The film—which is titled "Rodman: For Better or Worse" will detail Rodman's journey to becoming a Hall of Famer and five-time NBA Champion. The documentary will detail Rodman's difficult upbringing in Dallas, his dominant run at Southeastern Oklahoma State and his development into one of the greatest rebounders in NBA history.
While Rodman is no doubt one of the greatest talents in NBA history, he is just as famous for his intriguing and oftentimes shocking off the court exploits. Rodman: For Better or Worse will discuss Rodman diving into international diplomacy issues and all of the deeper reasons behind him becoming the interesting character that we know him as today.
The documentary will feature interviews from former teammates and coaches of Rodman's, including Bill Laimbeer, John Salley, Isiah Thomas, Michael Jordan, and Phil Jackson.
Rodman: For Better or Worse will be directed by Todd Kapostasy.
Kapostasy is a seven-time Emmy Award winner. He wrote and directed 2016 documentary 'Confessions of a Cubs Fan: A Century of Waiting', which focused on the idea that winning isn't everything in sports amid the backdrop of the Cubs winning the 2016 World Series.
“Rodman: For Better or Worse” released on September 10, at 8 p.m. CT

It's that time of the year when every fan and player loses their mind over arbitray video game ratings that mean nothing.
That is, unless you're Coby White.
The rookie found out his rating for NBA 2K20 in a video posted to Twitter on Thursday and, much to the delight of this author, was pleased with his 76 rating.
"It's solid," White told Ronnie 2K. "Everybody be wanting their grade to be higher than what it is but I haven't played a game in the league yet so I understand why it's a 76. But I feel like after the season it'll be higher."
White said he hopes he can get his rating up to at least an 80 by the end of the season. Bulls fans would be pleased with that development, too.
White also said he was happy with his likeness in the game, which you can check out below.
