But Lee is on fire right now. Tie game. 99-99.

KP added 2 to make Knicks lead 107- 102
Holiday comes in to replace KP .. What about replacing Dolan boy Melo LMAO

KP puts nail the coffin (first bucket of second half).... hard to believe still within 3 games of the 6th seed. Lol.
 
Unexpected grit from this team tonight to get the comeback win. Maybe other teams should be trying to see what it will take to get Courtney Lee from us before the trade deadline.

Hornets got it down to 2 with Batums 3 but Melo hits a 9 ft jumper and FT to seal it. Knicks win a close one 110-107.

Game ball to CLee. Quinn had an impact. I agree with Kiya how can you give steady minutes to Noah and not to Quinn.

Knicks entered 4th down by 5.... now have a 2-23 record when trailing after 3....
Finally, NY avoid a 5th brutal home loss in a close game in jan.

Two very effective games in a row by CLee, thats the guy I thought we signed. I hope he continues to step up, Ron Baker is not better.
