Today in Knicks history
December 18, 2006 Stephon Marbury hits a driving, buzzer-beating layup to give the Knicks a 97-96 (OT) win over Utah at Madison Square Garden. Knicks dressed the minimum, eight players in the contest, as it was the first game following a melee with the Nuggets.
October 30, 2013 The New York Knicks opened the teamís 68th season of NBA basketball at the newly transformed Madison Square Garden with a convincing victory over the visiting Milwaukee Bucks 90-83 for its first win of the 2013-14 season. New York was led by Carmelo Anthonyís 19 points and 10 rebounds over 38 minutes for his first double-double of the season. Raymond Felton added 18 points, three assists and three steals over 34 minutes of play. Iman Shumpert posted 16 points and four rebounds over 33 minutes. Milwaukee was paced by Gary Nealís 16 points and five assists off the bench. Caron Butler added 14 points. Milwaukee was short handed as they saw its starting guard Brandon Knight leave the game two minutes in. New York, once up 25-points, saw their lead dissolve but thanks to a Tyson Chandler put back dunk and two straight Anthony jumpers late in the fourth quarter put the Knicks up five points, a lead they would not relinquish. New York, after a slight hiccup, regained its control over the game and cruised to a 90-83 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on opening night. April 5, 2013 On a night where the New York Knicks honored the 1972-73 NBA championship team, the Knicks had a first half to forget before scoring a season-high 42 third quarter points- 18 points from Carmelo Anthony and 12 from J.R. Smith- as they rolled the Bucks in the second half outscoring Milwaukee 65-38 en route to a 101-83 victory to extend its winning streak to 11-games. The 11-game winning streak, which is tied for the third longest in franchise history, is the longest since the 1993-94 season (15-games). Carmelo Anthony posted 41 points on 17-28 shooting and 14 rebounds over 37 minutes for his seventh double-double of the season. This was Anthonyís third consecutive 40-point performance tying the franchise record for consecutive 40-games (Bernard King- three straight in 1984). J.R. Smith recorded 30 points on 11-22 and 10 rebounds over 34 minutes for his seventh double-double of the season. This is the second game this season that both Anthony and Smith each posted at least 30-points in the same game. Milwaukee was led by Brandon Jenningsí 25 points and four rebounds over 37 minutes. Larry Sanders added nine points and 12 rebounds over 31 minutes.
