I don't know.
More, please! I have to fight not to get hyped on these last few games. But we might be "back." Finally. The next few games will give us undeniable proof.
I know what to be thankful for, the Knicks looking good and back to .500. Hope the Knicks continue their wining ways.
Great game. What a finish from Amar'e. The block, the free throws, then the out-of-control spinning and creating in the lane finding Fields.
First 5-game winning streak in 5 years.
NY now owns tiebreaker vs CHA.
If MIA losses tonight, NY will trail the Heat by a mere half game. Who would predict that after 16 games.
Great win. Knicks need to keep rolling!
Now we believe again!
Overall good game

Don't get me wrong I love what's happening but we need someone who can rebound. Pat R "rebounds= rings"....come on Walsh do your magic
I'll take good defense and shotblocking over meaningless defensive rebounds anyday. David Lee grabbed a ton of boards but he did it at the expense of poor defensive positioning...I'm OK with us being outboarded so long as we, I dunno, WIN GAMES.
Great game tonight. Felton bringing it in front of the home crowd...I like it.
fundenmentals and basics are what win games and there is nothing more basic or fundemental about the game of basketball then rebounding. Learn the game son and then we can talk.
how many blocks were in fact pointless tonight? several of them, in everygame, the opponent gets ball back and scores anyway...the idea is to block and get the ball. when teams miss, get the ball.
rebounding is most important.
These things will bite them in the ass eventually and they'll blow the game, when they get cold...just like the minnesota game. rebounds let the other team win from a 20plus point defficit.
They've been hot...but it won't last forever(i wish) but they are good enough to win when they go cold if they rebound...no second chance points.
Yeah we didn't get too many offensive rebounds but we made up for that by getting back on defense very quickly and blocking a ton of shots especially in critical situations such as STAT's block of Jackson in the late 4th. Plus it might have just been a terrible rebounding night for the team, but they made up for it by playing good D down the stretch and I'd say that's by far more important
You're right about the blocks not being all THAT important, but it doesn't change the fact that the team is hustling to get back on D and I think that was a huge factor in our success. I don't know if it necessarily means giving up the offensive rebound, but I'm not complaining about a win. I'd be more worried about our lack of offense in the 4th quarter
What a win!!!!
What a ****ing win!!!!
Our captains took the game for us. Gutsy, gritty, flat out EARNED victory.
STAT's blocks, Ray Gun's all star effort, Chandler's smash oop.
I think I just jizzed.
True, that play sealed the game but I thought that if Amare didn't make that block and Charlotte scored on that possession, we probably lose the game. However, even if Felton doesn't make that play on the missed free throw, we still would have been leading and needing only one stop to ice it.
The great thing about the last two games, is that the Bobcats run didn't have this frustrating feeling like last year. The Bobcats are tough, and when it got very close, something within us made stops, scored, and picked up the win.
