“Sometimes, when you lose consecutive games, you start pressing and start over-thinking,” said Anthony (6 of 18 from the floor) who was called for a flagrant foul 1 in the third quarter when emotions boiled but did not explode. “We were much more aggressive on the defensive end. When you start off aggressive like that, it’s easier to pull back when we need to. Everybody fed off each other on the defensive end.”

“After losing four straight, it’s never a good feeling so tonight we came out with the intensity from the start that we needed,” said Stoudemire, who was huge inside, particularly during a 17-2 run that started the second quarter. “I was just taking what the defense gives me, being aggressive, being patient. My teammates were looking for me out there and they were executing.” – nypost
