New York in the second half just took control of the game and proved itself to be the better team. Tyson Chandler was aggressively rolling to the rim as Orlando struggled to shut off penetration from Raymond Felton and Carmelo Anthony. Chandler was ever-present on defense, helping suffocate Jameer Nelson offensively after he went off int he first half.
More than that, the Knicks could not be stopped offensively. They hit seven 3-pointers in the fourth quarter to expand a six-point lead into a 113-97 victory at Madison Square Garden on...

Late in the second quarter, Jameer Nelson went up for a floater, doing all he could to keep the Magic afloat in a poor offensive first half. The shot hit off the back iron and Paul Pierce went up for it grabbing the rebound. Nelson tried to be sneaky and make a play on the ball.
