I'm just proud of NY for playing with the type of heart that could bounce back & recover from a disaster month losing 6 consecutive & 9 of 10 overall.
Beating Orlando was something to build off of. We competed against an Eastern Conf contender.
We finally beat Cleveland. That win couldn't erase the fact that we lost to the worst NBA team 3 consecutive times, but I feel it became a step in the right dirrection; a step of leaving the Cavs disaster as a thing of the past. We moved on from there.
The NJ victory was special for this team. We were down by as many as 15 & went into the half trailing by 10. We never quit & we came back focused. Played an outstanding 2nd half of basketball with defensive effort, intensity & pride during entire 2nd half.
Beating the Raptors down was nice to see. Toronto made a run, but we were simply too much for the weaker team to handle.
Last night was huge. Went into Philly & took down a strong home team fighting for the 6th seed. Excellent team defense. 2 games above .500.
