“It means a lot. It means we’re headed in the right direction,’’ coach Mike Woodson said. “When you set goals and you accomplish them, it means a lot to your franchise and your fans.’’

“It was our No. 1 goal,” said J.R. Smith, one of six Knicks in double figures with 17 points. “Coming into camp, we kept talking about it, and the coaching staff put it in our minds we can do it and we will. Fortunately we did. It’s a great thing to achieve one of our main goals; now we just have to go get that gold ball. We still have so much to prove not only to everybody else but to ourselves. We want to be a great team.’’ – nypost
