Melo’s 40 Carries Knicks Past Magic
Final Score: Knicks 114, Magic 106
Record: 23-10 (1st in Atlantic, 2nd in Eastern Conference)
Current Streak: Won 2
I wasn’t able to catch the game live (damn Saturday night games), but caught the replay late in the night.
Melo was going to let us lose this game as he dropped 16 of his 40 points in the fourth quarter.
Kind of a strange game as each quarter was just one team completely outplaying the other.
Post Game Knotes:
- Lost in Melo’s big night was Jason Kidd’s ridiculous stat line - 15 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists
- Amar’e gave 17 solid minutes last night… looking like he’s finding a groove. He’ll be back to form in no time.
- I’m really like this Camby/Chandler starting front court
- Vucevic was going to be trouble keeping off the boards and he was, grabbed 18 total.
- Kidd/Prigioni weren’t able to slow down Nelson (29 points, 8 assists), but we still found a way to win.
Over/Under Game Results:
- Vucevic 10 Rebounds: OVER (18)
- JR Smith 20 Points: UNDER (18)
- Melo 20 Shot Attempts: OVER (29)
- Prigioni 5 Assists: UNDER (2)
- Novak 2 Three’s Made: PUSH (2)
KNOTEWORTHY KNICK OF THE GAME: Carmelo Anthony - 40 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 steal
