Carmelo Anthony wasn’t at full health last night, but the Knicks look like they have healed fast on this two-game weekend road trip that ended emphatically last night in Motown.
Coach Mike D’Antoni’s hot seat feels more comfortable after the Knicks crushed the Pistons, 103-80, at the near-empty Palace. Back-to-back road wins have moved the Knicks to .500 at 4-4 with a Garden rematch against the Bobcats on tap tomorrow.
“We can build on these two road wins,’’ said Anthony.
The Knicks got a balanced team performance with a hampered Anthony spreading the wealth, finishing with seven assists, 13 points and three blocks after deciding to play with a back/groin injury.
