    Thumbs up Our Biggest Win Of The Year!

    Billups remains the same proud championship quarterback he's always been, and so he hardly surprised himself when he made the endgame steals and runner and 3-pointer that the world's most gifted player, LeBron James, could not make.

    But the most significant big-picture development in Knicks 91, Miami Heat 86, was the defense Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire played on James in the final, frantic seconds, when LeBron dribbled left and darted into the lane for what he believed would be the winning basket and a rejection of the Knicks' master plan to unseat the uncrowned Heat.

    The first seed in this seminal moment was planted in the middle of the fourth quarter, when Anthony sidled up to teammate Bill Walker and told him they needed to trade defensive assignments, told him he wanted to cover LeBron James down the stretch.

    Anthony had his reasons. He entered this game with an 8-4 head-to-head record against James, and with a long history of engaging LeBron in summertime duels on the AAU circuit. James' high school in Akron, St. Vincent-St. Mary, met Anthony's Oak Hill Academy in 2002, and Melo won that faceoff, too.
    This was our biggest win of the year.
    Held a Top team under 100 points

    Went on a 16-0 run to close out the 2nd quarter

    Our new stars close it out.

    My order of Top Victories:
    Nov. 4th Win over the Bulls

    Dec. 3rd Win over the Hornets

    Dec. 12th Win over the Nuggets

    Dec. 22nd Win over OKC

    Dec. 25th Christmas Win over the Bulls (again)

    Jan. 22nd Win over Portland

    Feb. 23rd Win over the Bucks (with new look roster)

    And of course Last night

    This win was reminiscent of the days of old. Defensive intensity, stars closing it out with big shots.

    The biggest thing we can take from this is...

    1. With defense we really can beat anyone. Our leaders recognize this and are making a concerted effort. Bravo

    2. We have "spurtability". We can score in bunches, and are never out of it.

    3. Once we get geling which with Stat, Melo, Billups should be quicker than normal, we will have confidence to excel in the playoffs.


    Did I miss any games? Your thoughts.

    Btw, I think the earlier wins with our old roster were important for a variety of reasons. Mainly because it was a step in the right direction.

    Defense-Defense-Defense!!!!

    That's NYKnicks basketball.

    MIAMI -- With the game on the line, LeBron James got past Carmelo Anthony.

    Not Amare Stoudemire, however.


    For a change, New York's defense didn't rest as the Knicks eked past the Miami Heat in South Beach on Sunday night...

    And just like that, the New York Knicks -- with defense, no less -- knocked off the Miami Heat

    Chauncey Billups made the go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:01 left, Stoudemire blocked James' layup try with 7 seconds remaining to protect a one-point lead, and the Knicks finished with a 13-2 run to beat the Heat 91-86 on Sunday night.

    "The bigger the game, the bigger the stage, the bigger they play," Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said.

    Anthony scored 29 points and Stoudemire added 16 points and 10 rebounds. Billups had 16 points for the Knicks, who rallied from a 15-point, first-half deficit and improved to 2-1 since the megatrade with Denver that dramatically changed their roster.
    And we should be adding Jeffries any minute now.
