CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls were open all over the floor, so Joakim Noah kept collecting assists. Yeezy 350 v2 Lundmark Pas Cher . Jumpers for Jimmy Butler and Kirk Hinrich. A dunk for Taj Gibson, another jumper for Butler, and on and on it went. The All-Star centre put on quite a show. Noah had 14 assists in his fifth career triple-double, leading the streaking Bulls to a 109-90 victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday. "Its really all my teammates," he said. "I think were getting better every game." Noah also had 13 points and 12 rebounds in his second triple-double of the season, but it was his deft passing that really stood out. It was the most assists by an NBA centre since at least the 1985-86 season and a franchise record for his position. "What can you say? He is playing MVP basketball," Gibson said. "He is doing everything in all facets of the game." Chicago had seven players score in double figures and set a franchise record by committing only three turnovers in its ninth win in the last 10 games. The Bulls also reached 100 points for the fourth consecutive game for the first time since Oct. 30-Nov. 5, 2010. D.J. Augustin had 21 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter as Chicago (33-26) improved to 21-8 since Jan. 1 and a season-high seven games above .500 overall. Butler scored 19 points and Carlos Boozer had 14. "Weve hit a stretch where we have guys that are healthy playing that I think they know what to expect from each other," coach Tom Thibodeau said. "I think theyre playing to their strengths." While the Bulls are galloping through the weak Eastern Conference, the Knicks are floundering. Carmelo Anthony scored 21 points and Tyson Chandler had 22 rebounds, but New York dropped its sixth consecutive game. The Knicks (21-39) are just 6-16 since Jan. 14. "Its embarrassing," Anthony said. "Its frustrating and its embarrassing." Swingman Iman Shumpert had three points on 1-for-6 shooting in his return to the lineup. He missed five games after he sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee during New Yorks 98-91 victory over New Orleans on Feb. 19. Noah rolled his right ankle at the beginning of the second half and got it re-taped before coming back in at the start of the fourth quarter. He heard more chants of "M-V-P! M-V-P!" when he went 1 for 2 at the line to make it 89-70 with 9:26 to go. There were more loud cheers when Jimmer Fredette checked in with 3:08 left after joining the Bulls earlier in the day. The sharp-shooting guard drilled a long jumper on his first shot, making it 107-83 with 2:16 remaining. Fredette, the 10th overall pick in the 2011 draft, was bought out by Sacramento on Thursday and cleared waivers on Saturday. His contract with the Bulls covers the rest of the season. "It was great. I mean, these guys did a great job the whole game and got a big lead and I was able to get into the game," Fredette said. Led by Noah, the Bulls jumped all over the Knicks right at the start. He capped Chicagos opening 16-1 run with a driving layup and rebound tip-in. It just kept getting worse for New York, which shot 32 per cent from the field in the first quarter. Butler scored 10 points and also found Gibson for a big dunk as Chicago jumped to a 37-16 lead, setting a season high for points for the opening period. "They came out with more energy than we did, took advantage of us," Chandler said. "On the defensive end, backdoor cuts that pretty much changed the game." The lead grew to 25 early in the second before Anthony and Amare Stoudemire started to heat up. Anthony made a nice pass to Stoudemire for a reverse layup that got New York within nine with 3:33 to go. Anthony drove the baseline for a smooth jam, but Noah found Butler for a jumper that lifted Chicago to a 59-48 halftime lead. Noah had 11 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds at the break. "You cant come on the road and start like that and expect to win," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. NOTES: Anthony has said he plans to become a free agent this summer, and there was at least one sign calling on him to come to Chicago. "I cant see next year," Anthony said. "I cant even see tomorrow at this point." ... Stoudemire and Tim Hardaway Jr. had 14 points apiece for New York. ... The Bulls improved to 14-2 this season when they score 100 or more points. ... The Bulls and Knicks have one more scheduled meeting, on April 13 in New York.

The Florida Panthers have enjoyed a similar experience due to their own exceptional rookie, Aaron Ekblad. Having proven their ability to the league, the two elite rookies can prove it against each other tonight when the Panthers head to Calgary for their final meeting this season. Gaudreau scored in Calgarys previous meeting with the Panthers - a 6-4 victory on Nov. 8 - and ranks second among rookies with 31 points, trailing only Nashvilles Filip Forsberg.

Ekblad has tallied an assist in his last three games and his 23 points rank first among rookie defensemen, leading second place by 10.

Backup goaltender Karri Ramo suffered an upper-body injury and rookie center Josh Jooris aggravated a recurring upper-body injury. The ailments come just as Calgary had returned several key players from injury, most notably Mikael Backlund, whose performance against the Red Wings stands as one of the few positives in the loss. After dealing with an abdominal injury for most of this season, Backlund had a goal and an assist in his first game since Oct. 28. Backs is probably one of the most underrated two-way players in the league, coach Bob Hartley said. (Wednesday), that was exactly the Mikael Backlund that we know, and thats exactly the Mikael Backlund that we need. The loss was Calgarys second in a row after a four-game win streak and kept it two points outside of the playoff picture at the halfway point in the season.

Panthers winger Jonathan Huberdeau continued his best stretch of the season with two goals and an assist. Huberdeau has seven points in six games, but has been held scoreless in two career matchups with the Flames. Theyre developing into great players, and this is just the beginning for us, Luongo said to Floridas official site about the teams young players. Were excited for what is ahead of us here. Jiri Hudler expects to be back for Calgary after he missed Wednesdays loss following the birth of his first child. Hudler is tied for the team lead with 13 goals and has 23 points in his last 19 games. Hudler has been particularly strong against the Panthers in his career, posting six points while winning all eight meetings. Calgary defenseman Mark Giordano has been held pointless in a season-high four consecutive games during an otherwise stellar season. Giordano has 10 goals, 25 assists and tallied a season-high three points in the Flames previous matchup with Florida.
