Today in Knicks history
November 23, 1976 Walt Frazier records a triple-double with 21 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists in 100-98 loss to Kansas City at the Garden.
April 9, 2013 New York jumped out to a 36-23 lead after 12 minutes and never looked back as the Knicks cruised to a 120-99 victory over the Washington Wizards to extend its winning streak to 13-games. New York was led by Carmelo Anthony’s 36 points and eight rebounds over 31 minutes. Anthony ties Bernard King with his fifth straight 35-point performance. J.R. Smith recorded 17 points on 7-14 shooting over 32 minutes. Chris Copeland (17 points) and Steve Novak (12 points) combined to contribute 29 points for the Knicks off the bench. Iman Shumpert added 18 points on 7-10 shooting. Washington was paced by John Wall’s 33 points, three rebounds and three assists over 33 minutes. Cartier Martin added 16 points off the bench. The Knicks 13-game winning streak is the third best winning streak in franchise history. Carmelo Anthony is the first Knicks player with five consecutive 35-point games since Bernard King accomplished this feat in the 1984-85 season. March 1, 2013 New York rode erased a four-point deficit entering the fourth quarter where they held Washington to 11 points on 3-17 shooting (.176) and force six turnovers as they rode a 9-0 game-ending run to a 96-88 victory over the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center. Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 30 points and six rebounds over 43 minutes. J.R. Smith posted his fourth double-double of the season with 13 points and a career high 12 rebounds over 33 minutes. Raymond Felton recorded 23 points, six rebounds and four assists over 32 minutes to help the Knicks defeat the Wizards. Washington was led by its rookie Bradley Beal who posted 29 and 11 rebounds over 39 minutes. John Wall added 16 points and six assists. New York trailing 77-73 entering the final quarter used a 10-0 run to grab back the lead an 83-77 with 8:32 left in the game. Washington didn’t quit as it cut the New York lead to 89-87 on a Beal free throw with 3:21 left to play. Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks answered with a three-pointer that ignited a game-ending 9-1 run that gave the Knicks a road victory 96-88 over the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center.
A road trip might be exactly what the New York Knicks need, considering their inability to win on their own floor. Opening against the Washington Wizards should help before the competition gets a lot tougher.
After extending their losing streak at home to six games, the Knicks will try to continue their recent dominance of the Wizards when they begin a four-game swing Saturday night.
The Knicks (3-8) were in control throughout Wednesday's game against Indiana before the Pacers rallied late in regulation and dominated overtime for a 103-96 victory.
New York, which opened the game on a 13-0 run, held an 89-86 lead with 9.2 seconds left, but Iman Shumpert fouled George Hill on a 3-point attempt and Hill sank all three free throws to force the extra period.
"It don't really matter what I think or what happened," said Shumpert, who appeared to barely touch George in TV replays. "They called the foul."
The Knicks seemed completely deflated after Hill's clutch shooting from the line and went on to play a lethargic overtime.
"I thought we had the game won," said Carmelo Anthony, who had 30 points and a season-best 18 rebounds. "And in overtime, I don't know, they just walked away with it."
J.R. Smith added 21 points and Beno Udrih had a season-high 19 for the Knicks, who remained winless at home since a season-opening victory over Milwaukee on Oct. 30.
The Knicks were again without injured starters Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton, while Amare Stoudemire also didn't play on the second night of a back-to-back.
New York has displayed a far more aggressive defense on the road than at home this season. The Knicks are allowing 105.1 points per game at home - the third-highest average in the NBA - but have given up just 89.0 while going 2-2 on the road.
The Knicks will need to maintain that trend to have any chance on a trip that also features games against Portland, the Los Angeles Clippers and Denver - three of the top eight scoring teams in the league.

F**k even the lowly Wiz have a better record. This is a must game, have to start winnig the games we're supposed to.
Wizards are good now, don't know why people think they're a bad team.
Any NBA team with a healthy Nene will contend.
John Wall is emerging into the next level with his mid range jumper and Beal has also stepped into the next level as a top 10 SG.
Webster is having a good year and Wizards getting Gortat for cheap gives them a very good PF/C combo in Nene-Gortat. A lot of size and strength and it may be too much for the Knicks to handle.
I think Wizards right now look like a top 5 team in the East, if they stay healthy things will stay that way.
A well put Game-Thread Rady .... I like the Possible Starters (Woody is undecided)
I'm looking for "Amare, K-Mart, and Meta," to put this team on their back tonight for a blow-out WIN.
If we play ISO-Melo above 32 minutes in a game vs the Bullets aka Wizards, or give rookie THJ playingtime with a 3-8 record .. then Woodson need to be FIRED. WIN or LOSS
We're in a desperate need of a winning streak. Moreover, these Knicks have to make a statement. Not today, but as soon as next week. Blazers, Clippers and Nuggets await the Knicks as the O&B are about to go West. We could be 3-12 as soon as next Friday. But we could also be 7-8. Let's hope this team finally got their **** together.
We got this guys....Wizards aren;'t playing the greatest ball either. What did they win, one more game then us. And the refs blew at least 2 of our games.....we start our winning tear here
.333 winning pct does not make you a top 5 team in the East. They should have a better record with that roster but it hasn't translated in wins/losses, seems like the same story every year and I bet it's like in NY where the fans are blaming Wittman like they're blaming Woody in NY.
This 20-25 minutes can make his next injure Nene vs STAT i only hope not much TO's and travelling
Udrih vs Wall much better than Felton which was alltime outplayed by Wall.
Lets hope we get this W gentlemen
Thank god Beno is starting.
some nice passing
bargsanity with the post up fade away!!
