The Bulls ended up crushing the Knicks by 27 points on Friday, but the game wasn't yet that out of hand to where Nikola Mirotic would have been justified in taking this kind of shot.

Chicago led by 13 with a little over six minutes remaining, but with nine seconds still on the shot clock, Mirotic rose up from 31 feet away and launched a three-pointer, which ended up being the dagger that sealed things even with so much time left.
