Knicks Magic at the Garden!
Knicks showed some life, some magic at the Garden tonight! ‘Melo declared pre-game “a must-win”, and the Knicks pulled it out. They were a little shaky closing out with the lead, but in OT Mr. Big Shot and ‘Melo shined. Dwight Howard was ejected in OT (for six fouls), and added his 17th T(echnical) which helped the Knicks cause. ‘Melo was scrappy on D and dropped 39, his highest points as a Knick plus 10 boards. Stat added 20 and nine (boards).
”I said that. That’s how I felt, that’s how we felt as a team, that it was a must win for us,” Anthony said. ”We, as a team, backed it up tonight.”
”Carmelo helped, he was on fire out there.” Stoudemire said. ”They had no answer for him, and then we played great defensively, we got after it, chasing down loose balls, really, really showing the effort to want to win and it showed tonight.”
