New York Knicks weekly breakdown: 12/16 – 12/22
The Knicks saw their undefeated run at home come to an end, losing games to the Rockets and Bulls at Madison Square Garden. New York did however win the third Battle of New York by taking down Brooklyn on Wednesday night.
Despite losing two of three games, the Knicks still hold a five and a half-game lead in the Atlantic Division, along with a share of the top spot in the Eastern Conference with the Miami Heat.
Return of Linsanity:
As if it were early February of last season, Jeremy Lin put on a captivating show in front of the Madison Square Garden crowd during a Knicks game on Monday night.
This time, though, Lin was in an opposing uniform and the Knick-faithful crowd helplessly watched Jeremy drop 22 points while dishing out eight assists in a 109-96 Houston victory.
Carmelo Anthony missed the game due to a left ankle injury.

The Knicks of old not only lacked a killer instinct...
Superstar forward Carmelo Anthony rightfully said anything shy of an appearance in the Eastern Conference finals would be an “unacceptable” outcome for the New York Knicks in 2013. At 20-7, and despite being a collection of Golden Girls in high … Continue reading →

The Bulls frustrated...
NEW YORK -- Carmelo Anthony already had been ejected with his second technical foul about midway through the fourth quarter when the Knicks star forward prepared to walk toward a hallway outside the team's locker room.

New York Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudemire, who hasn't played all season as he returns from a surgically repaired left knee, will not play Sunday, but will join the team for next week's road trip.

Bulls vs Knicks: MSG 730pm
The Bulls come into the Garden for the first time this season. Another long time rivalry renewed.

Most of it had to do with Chicago’s top flight defense. The Bulls...
NEW YORK (AP) -- Blame the Christmas carols.
In a "Bah humbug!" moment, Carmelo Anthony jokingly suggested the halftime music messed up the mood, offering that among a couple of reasons for the Knicks' slow start Sunday.
He made sure no excuses were needed at the end.
Anthony scored 19 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter, rallying New York to a 94-91 victory over...

Anthony, cold from the floor for most of the game and down to his last foul with 3:04 left in the game, finished with 33 points, scoring the Knicks' last 12...
The Knicks were thoroughly beaten despite the final score by the Chicago Bulls a few nights ago for the second time this season. Of the Knicks seven losses this season, you can argue that four have come at the hands of teams that play a very physical style of play.
The first sign that a physical team could be the Knicks’ kryptonite was the 105-95 loss at Memphis, when Carmelo...
