In a game that for sure left fans at the edge of their seats, biting off their nails, screaming at their TVs and gasping for air, the Knicks pulled out a huge win over the Bucks in Milwaukee, 111-107. Carmelo Anthony continued his hot streak, leading New York with 32 points and 10 rebounds. Monta Ellis had his best game as a Buck, scoring 35 points and filling the stat sheet with 10 assists, six rebounds and four steals.
I’m still on overdrive after the Knicks comeback win over the Chicago Bulls today, Easter Sunday. It was a game full of resurrections (D-Rose and Bulls in third, Carmelo and the Knicks in late fourth and overtime). Here’s a special edition of the Three-Man Weave.
Two national TV games versus Orlando. Two Knicks blowouts. Nice.
The Knicks defeated Orlando for the second time in as many weeks, as they blew out the Magic 96-80. Tyson Chandler led the way with a solid 12 points and 12 rebounds. He shut down Dwight Howard for the 3rd time this season, holding the Magic center to 8 points and 8 rebounds. The scoring was balanced as five different Knicks scored in double figures.
Iman Shumpert: The Knicks rookie guard is making a strong case that he should be in the starting lineup. In his last four games, Shump is averaging 17.8 points, four rebounds and over two steals. His shooting numbers are just as impressive (47% from the floor, 47% from beyond the arc on 12-for-26). Meanwhile, starting SG Landry Fields has endured a stretch of 11 consecutive games in single figure scoring and is shooting just 35% from the floor since Mike Woodson took over as interim coach.
With his sudden emergence onto the NBA stage, Jeremy Lin has been added to the roster of the 2012 Rising Stars All-Star Game. Lin, along with fellow rookie Norris Cole, was a late addition, made by acting commissioner Kenny Smith.
The Knicks lost to the Milwaukee Bucks, 100-86, Friday night, at Madison Square Garden, because the defense was, again, not what it needs to be. They allowed the Bucks to shoot 48 percent from the field, which is too high.
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.
One excuse some might have for the loss is that Amar’e Stoudemire did not play for the second straight game, as a result of a sprained ankle, but they easily beat the Sacramento Kings without him.
The New York Knicks gave all of their fans a nice Christmas present by defeating the Boston Celtics in thrilling fashion, 106-104, as Carmelo Anthony led the way.
During a matinee game against their rivals from the north, the Knicks started out strong, ending the first quarter with a 34-23 lead. Renaldo Balkman, and rookies Josh Harrelson and Iman Shumpert, came off the bench and gave valuable minutes, while the starters were resting. New York was able to successfully limit the impact of Rajon Rondo in the first quarter, who is one of the top three point-guards in basketball, especially when he is making his jumpers.
I have a ton of graphics dropping in the coming week… Stay tuned!
Landry Fields was drafted by the New York Knicks in the second round of this year’s draft.
Many people, including myself were a bit skeptical about the pick, and questioned Donnie Walsh for passing on Lance Stephenson, among others.
This is hilarious.
