The Knicks defeated the Cavs 102-98 after trailing by 22 points and having Carmelo Anthony leave with a knee injury. Amare Stoudemire had 22 points on 10-15 shooting to lead the Knicks and Maurice Speights had 23 points on 10-14 shooting.
I wouldn’t be the first person to observe that the Knicks’ remaining schedule is brutal. Most people point to the two obvious metrics: opponent’s records and road games.

This past weekend, during the halftime of the Syracuse vs. Georgetown game, Carmelo Anthony’s #15 Syracuse jersey was retired. In order to honor ‘Melo even more, members of the Syracuse team wore a special colorway of the M9s. The pair they wore featured White, Orange and Navy.
The Knicks snapped a four-game losing streak by defeating the Philadelphia 76ers, and retaining first place in the Atlantic Division.
