Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett jawed from baseline to midcourt, and Anthony still had more to say. So the Knicks forward went toward the Celtics locker room after the game to keep shouting.
Carmelo Anthony scored 40 points as the Knicks defeated the Magic in Orlando 114-106. The Knicks have won two straight overall and four in a row over the Magic, dating back to last season.
One characteristic we have seen this Knicks team show several times this season is their ability to rise to the occasion. They haven’t done it every time, but many times when the Knicks see a top opponent in front of them they play their best basketball.
Sometime between Stephen Jackson’s sideline stumble and J.R. Smith’s soaring slam, the San Antonio Spurs realized this wasn’t their night. Too much fatigue and way too much Knicks defense.
There was a lot of paper and ink wasted Wednesday morning on stories about Amar’e Stoudemire. But what about the real issue?
James Johnson made a 3-pointer at the buzzer Friday night, lifting the Sacramento Kings to a 106-105 victory over the New York Knicks after blowing an early 27-point lead.
The return of Stoudemire shouldn’t really be a big deal. It’s very clear that Anthony, the main man no matter who is on the Knicks, has to get the overwhelming majority of his minutes at the four.
Knicks point guard Raymond Felton won’t need surgery on his broken right pinky finger and is expected to be out at least a month.
Raymond Felton told reporters on Wednesday night that he has a fracture in his right pinkie, which was found after he underwent an X-ray at halftime.
But in truth, perhaps the biggest difference maker of them all this year has been Jason Kidd. He looked washed up last year, but at some point in the offseason he either found the Fountain of Youth or built a DeLorean.
Without Carmelo Anthony in the lineup, J.R. Smith embraced the role of crunch time go-to guy and delivered another clutch game-winning shot.
J.R. Smith sank a baseline 21-footer at the buzzer after a Phoenix turnover with a second to play, giving the depleted New York Knicks a 99-97 victory over the Suns on Wednesday night.
On December 2, Felton bruised his left hand against the Suns. Then, on December 13, he bruised his right hand against the Lakers. His Christmas gift from Santa on Tuesday was a sprained ligament on the pinky finger of his shooting hand. He’s a mess.
The Lakers avenged an embarrassing loss at MSG by beating the Knicks at Staples Center on Christmas Day.
The Knicks are the talk of the town at 18-6. It couldn’t be any better, could it? Well, yes. It could.
