The Knicks eventually fell to the Pistons after climbing out of the 27-point hole they dug themselves, but even in defeat, Langston Galloway’s pump-fake, spin-move, step-back short-corner splash remains a pretty big winner.
The Knicks snap their 7 game losing streak tonight as they beat the Minnesota Timberwovles 118-106. Leading the way was none other than Carmelo Anthony who finished with 33 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists.
Welcome back to the winners circle, hopefully you’ll stay for a while!
Time flies! It’s been almost 4 years since Kobe Bryant was introduced to Linsanity on February 11th of 2012. That was the day when Jeremy Lin 林書豪 scored a career-high 38 and dished out 7 assists against Kobe (34 points & 10 rebounds) in a Knicks win.
Tonight, Lin scored 13 points in a Hornets win over Kobe (20 points on 5 of 20 shooting) and the Lakers.
The Knicks barley survived tonight, but they are leaving Philly with a 93-92 victory, keeping their winning streak alive! In doing so, they also kept the Sixers losing skid alive, extending it to 23 straight!
With their backs up against a wall and time running out the Knicks stepped up and dismantled their rivals tonight, beating the Nets 110-81.
It was solid team effort as they shot a season high 60% and took a commanding hold of the game from the start. Leading the way to victory was J.R. Smith who finished with 24 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists, while Melo added 23 points and 10 rebounds. Tim Hardaway Jr. also did his thing, not letting his sprained ankle stop him, as he contributed 17 points.
Aside from this impressive win, with the Hawks losing to the Bulls tonight the Knicks have swooped in on Atlanta’s territory and are now tied for the 8th seed in the East.
With no margin for error and only 6 games left, the Knicks must continue to play the season out with this kind of intensity if they hope to make it to the post-season,
Ok, where is Roger Bomman aka Joseph Gordon-Levitt hiding? Clearly, there has to be something magical happening in the Big Apple, because the Knicks have miraclously turned things around and have now won five games in a row. And not only are they winning, but they are doing so in convincing fashion, as they’ve won all of their past five games in double digits. Sure, they’ve been victorious over teams below .500, but hey, it’s a start!
Next up they face the tanking Bucks, so you have to think they will be up to six by the end of the week. However, the true test will come next Wednesday, when they take on the Pacers. If they are able to beat one of the best teams in the league, I think everyone will be eating their words.
The Knicks are rolling, is it time to believe the hype?
