January 24, 2014 Carmelo Anthony set a career high and franchise record with 62 points in Madison Square Garden against the then Charlotte Bobcats. It is only fitting that Anthony reached his 20,000 career point milestone against the now Charlotte Hornets as well.
Iman Shumpert started the game off very aggressively, possibly because of his contract not getting extended Friday night. Trying to make a point? Possibly…Shumpert looked for his shot early and often, scoring nine points in the opening five minutes, but was overly aggressive on the defensive end, collecting an early second personal foul, forcing him to the bench. With back to back threes, New York held an early double digit lead, 15-5. Carmelo Anthony’s three also put him in the 20,000 career points club.
Gary Neal kept Charlotte in the game, scoring eight of the ten points by the Hornets in between the end of the first quarter and beginning of the second quarter. Neal finished the game with 17 points. New York would lead by as much as 15 points in the first half, going on a 7-0 run capped off by an Iman Shumpert baseline slam dunk, giving the Knicks a 43-28 lead. The Hornets answered with a 22-9 run powered by Al Jefferson, scoring ten points working the low post, cutting the deficit to 52-50 by the end of the first half. Continue reading
The Knicks are on their longest losing streak of the season and Unibrow and company are on their longest winning streak of the season. Both of those things need to change right now. Comment below as the game goes on.
To the Pelicans. That’s not a joke. Here’s a sneak peak at their new logo:
Thanks Leang and Evan!
The version of the Knicks that beat Miami came out swinging tonight. The team has driven us crazy lately with their up and down moments and tonight was an up night. The Knicks, minus Billups, looked in control all game. They looked cool and calm like Brad Pitt in Fight Club.
- T.Douglas looked awesome tonight. 24 points, 10-13 from the field. I am shocked that our combo of TD and Carter was so good.
- Carmelo and Amare looked awesome tonight and Shawne Williams is our best bench player when he doesn’t start
- I am not saying Chris Paul is unhappy in New Orleans but if you are a real estate broker in the New Orleans area you may want to pass him your card.
- Roger Mason shot 2-2 which quadrupled his season’s FG%. I am fairly certain Mason deserves a cake from Carvel for that.
