Today in Knicks history
March 26, 1999 Patrick Ewing becomes the 12th player in NBA history to reach both 20,000 career points and 10,000 rebounds by recording his 10,000th board in 94-87 victory at Phoenix.
January 26, 2014 New York outlasted Los Angeles on a Sunday afternoon as the Knicks outscored the Lakers 15-11 over the final seven minutes to record their second straight victory at Madison Square Garden. New York was paced by Carmelo Anthonyís 35 points, five assists and four rebounds over 40 minutes. Raymond Felton recorded 20 points on 8-10 shooting and five assists over 36 minutes. This was Feltonís first 20-point performance of the season. Tyson Chandler recorded a double-double with 13 points and 14 rebounds over 30 minutes. Tim Hardaway Jr. added 18 points and J.R. Smith added 16 points off the bench. Los Angeles was led by Jodie Meeks 24 points (8-13 FG) and three rebounds over 43 minutes. Pau Gasol posted 20 points and 13 rebound for a double-double over 39 minutes. February 3, 2013 New York fell behind early 13-3 but took complete control of the game as they went on to score 117-68 the remainder of the game as they cruised to a 120-81 victory over the Sacramento Kings at the Garden. New York drilled 19-triples which is tied for the second most in franchise history. The 39-point victory is the largest margin of victory since Mar. 14, 2012 win vs. POR when they won by 42-points. The 30-15 record is the best record after 45-gmaes since 1996-97. The Knicks grabbed a season high 52 rebounds and dished out a season best 34 assists. The 120 points are the second most points scored this season. New York was paced by J.R. Smithís 25 points, six rebounds and four assists over 22 minutes. Amaríe Stoudemire finished with 21 points on 10-10 shooting and six rebounds over 21 minutes. The 10 FGM without a miss fell one short of the Knicks all-time franchise record (twice- B. King and J. Newman- 11-11 FG). Tyson Chandler posted 11 points and 20 rebounds for his 18th double-double of the season. He has now grabbed 20-rebounds in consecutive games. Carmelo Anthonyís streak of 31-straight 20-points games was snapped as he posted nine points, five rebounds and three assists over 27 minutes. Sacramento was led by DeMarcus Cousinís 25 points and nine rebounds over 33 minutes. Jimmer Fredette added 14 points. After falling behind 13-3 in the first quarter, the New York Knicks answered with a 38-4 run in the first half to take a 46-33 lead at the half. The Knicks continued their success in the third quarter as they outscored the Kings 41-19 and never looked back. The New York Knicks cruised the rest of the way and defeated the Sacramento Kings 120-81 at the Garden.
After lastnite ..............................
Outlaw scoring more than he averages in the season in one quarter. Why not?
"Knicks Are Back".....
Don't blow it fellas
Jr on Fire!!!
Melo played a pretty good game too....but that's why he gets paid the big bucks
JR 9-12 from three damn Rhianna must have finally called him back lol...but giving up a 24 point lead... does anyone know if Kmart is ever coming back to beef up our defense???
BTW MELO had 22 of the KNiCKS 44 second half points
A win over the LOTTERY 25-46 record Kings without their star PG does not lift my optimism as a Knicks Fan of making the postseason games.
30 wins, and 10 games remaining in the season (???).
Out of the 10 remaining games 9 of the teams are .500 record teams.
Where's the confidence???
