Apparently, there is a script that this new Knicks squad led by Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony must adhere to when they play the Celtics in Boston. Take a double-digit first half lead, blow it in the third quarter and then lose in heart wrenching fashion in the fourth quarter.
Tonight, the Knicks kicked off their one and only back-to-back-to-back with an energy filled loss at home against the Bulls, by a score of 102-105. Now, like many times this season, the Knicks played three quarters of good basketball, but were debilitated by one quarter. Tonight, that quarter was the second.

Tonight was the New York Knicks’ most important game of the young season, so far. The 76ers were coming into town with an offense that was aggressive and tough to defend; Their defense was ranked first in points allowed coming into tonight. They were coming in as one of the hottest teams in the league.
The Knicks defeated the Charlotte Bobcats, 91-87, at MSG, to move over .500 (5-4) and improve their record to 2-2 at the World’s Most Famous Arena. After losing by eight points on the 4th, the Knicks were able to pick up the defense to get some revenge against the Bobcats.
