Today in Knicks history
February 3, 2010 Knicks legend and Basketball Hall-of-Famer Dick McGuire, who helped shape the franchiseís destiny for more than half a century, passed away at the age of 84. McGuire, who had been part of the Knicks for 53 of the franchiseís 64 seasons, served the team as a player, head coach, assistant coach, chief scout, and in his most current position of senior basketball consultant. His jersey No. 15 was retired on Mar. 1, 1992 and hangs from the rafters of Madison Square Garden. In 1993, McGuire was enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
December 18, 2013 In a thrilling, double-overtime road game in Milwaukee, the Knicks outlasted the Bucks 107-101 for their eighth win of the season at BMO Harris Bradley Center. Carmelo Anthony led the way with a team high 29 points and nine rebounds over a career high 55 minutes. Beno Udrih posted 21 points and five assists over 40 minutes. Tyson Chandler in his first game back from injury recorded nine points and nine rebounds over 37 minutes. Brandon Knight paced the Bucks with a career high 36 points over 50 minutes. John Henson added 20 points and 14 rebounds over 51 minutes. Khris Middleton posted 20 points and nine rebounds over 52 minutes. 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.
