Knicks 96 Bucks 86
The New York Knicks took on the surging Milwaukee Bucks tonight at MSG in a test to regain home court dominance. Early on, the Bucks took it to the Knicks and had them on the ropes at the half. In the 2nd half the Knicks did what they have become known for-shut down defense. With 20 rebounds from Tyson Chandler and the “Hakeemesque” moves form Amar’e, the Knicks took off like an Angry Bird and cruised to a solid home win 96-86.
Things That Looked Good:
- Melo had an off game, well off for Melo I guess. He had 25 points on 7-22 shooting and 7 turnovers, but he also contributed in other ways. He hit the boards with 8 rebounds and dished out 6 assists.
- Stat’s “bag of moves” was impressive to say the least boys and girls. Amar’e will have a whole second career if he can master the baby hook and powerful spin moves. Amar’e had a solid game with 17 points and 7 rebounds in 24 minutes. He also was 7-8 from the line, which has been a positive part of his gam...

Twenty-five-point games aren’t really anything unusual from JR Smith. He’s had seven of them this season and probably a hundred in his career. Plus the Knicks played the Kings on Saturday. If you don’t drop 25 on the Kings then you basically aren’t an offensive player of any consequence.
So, why exactly am I presenting you with the news that JR Smith scored 25 points...

The Milwaukee Bucks have enjoyed plenty of success against the Atlantic Division this season, but like many teams, they had none when they faced New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony in November.
The Bucks seek to even the season series with the Knicks, and they have played well at Madison Square Garden in recent seasons heading into Friday night's matchup.
Earlier this week, the Knicks spent the day in Newtown, Connecticut (photos/videos) – showing their support to the grieving community nearly two months after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. For the second time this week, the team will gather with the community – only this time the Knicks are hosting.

Final Score: Kings: 81 Knicks: 120
Tonight the Knicks were able to extract some revenge from earlier in the season when they lost in Sacramento on a buzzer beater by blowing the Kings out of the Garden tonight. The game got off to a slow start, as the starters just did not have it in the beginning; it was a different story once the bench got into the game...
The Magic got to spend three days in the New York area and had two chances to get big wins against two good opponents. Each game, Orlando did a lot of things right and had a fantastic opportunity to score the two wins.
Unfortunately, there just was not enough of the good for 48 minutes and the team's depth and inability to keep things going with the bench players in. And...
