In 25 minutes off the bench, Beasley also added 12 rebounds and finished with a game high plus- of 18! His performance was so good that chants of “MVP” started to be heard from the crowd for him

The Knicks built a 14 points lead early in the first quarter, then fell behind by 9 in the third, only to comeback in the fourth and win the game 102-93.

Enes Kanter marked another double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds, Jarrett Jack and Courtney Lee contributed each with 12 points while Doug McDermott, Kyle O’Quinn and Frank Ntilikina scored 8 points each.
