The Knicks sweated it out for a half, which is the most they have sweated this season.
After falling behind at halftime and actually looking beatable, the Knicks swatted their first challenge away with the ease of the NBA’s lone undefeated team.
Holding the Mavericks to 37 points in the second half, the Knicks romped to 4-0 for the first time since 1993-94, posting a 104-94 Garden victory over the Mavericks. It was their fourth straight double-digit win to start the season — a franchise record.
Carmelo Anthony had 31 points, seven rebounds and two first-half blocks despite being in foul trouble and center Tyson Chandler, a beast on both ends, ransacked his former club with 11 points and nine rebounds.
