Today in Knicks history
January 11, 2001 Knicks set an NBA-record, holding their opponent to under 100 points for the 29th consecutive game, but lose to Houston 76-75 at Madison Square Garden. The streak breaks a 46-year old NBA record set by the Fort Wayne Pistons in the 1954-55 season.
February 24, 2013 New York coming into the game with its longest losing streak under Mike Woodson, used strong defense in the first half and strong bench play late to defeat the Philadelphia 76ers 99-93 at Madison Square Garden. New York was led by their leading scorer Carmelo Anthony’s 29 points and seven rebounds over 40 minutes. Amar’e Stoudemire led the way off the bench with 22 points and five rebounds over 22 minutes. Raymond Felton and J.R. Smith both added 14 points apiece. Philadelphia was paced by Jrue Holiday’s 30 points, five rebounds and five assists over 44 minutes. Evan Turner posted 21 points, eight assists and six rebounds over 41 minutes. Thaddeus Young recorded a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds over 36 minutes. The Knicks were able to grab a big lead early as they held Philadelphia to 40 points in the first half on 16-42 shooting from the field (.381) and out rebounding the 76ers 28-21. Philadelphia made a late run in the fourth quarter cutting the once 20-point New York lead to five with :43.9 seconds remaining. The run proved to be a little too late and just short as the Knicks’ defense stood strong late and prevailed to the 99-93 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on a Sunday night at Madison Square Garden. January 26, 2013 In a game New York never led, Philadelphia jumped out to a 12-2 lead and never looked back and they cruised to a easy victory and New York was defeated by the Philadelphia 76ers 97-80 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
