NEW YORK KNICKERBOCKERS: It's Cool To Be Right Sometimes. But Tonight, It Was Even Better To Be Wrong.
First, the straight version.
The New York Knicks beat the NBA's Top Team tonight 128-115 and improved their record to 20-14.
The fans at Madison Square Garden celebrated their 10th home win but got to participate in yet another uproarious night against the NBA's elite.
One thing I said about the Knicks still holds true. If Ray Felton and Landry Fields do not score in double digits together in the same game, the Knicks don't win. Felton scored 28 and Fields dropped 13.
But tonight Wilson Chandler was The Dude. He dumped 31 points all over the Spurs. Amar'e said it best after the game, "They didn't have an answer for him tonight." But part of that was because Amar'e kept making passes. He had 6 assists tonight.
Here's another...! Wilson Chandler and Stoudamire were high rebounders tonight with both getting 9 boards apiece.
Oh wait! Here's another... No GALLO tonight! He's hurt. Remember?
WAITER?! Some Crow please?
I believe in my last Knicks posting, I said Tim Duncan was going to put on a clinic in MSG tonight. I was questioning if the Knicks would have an answer for the Big Guy. I said he still has a whole-lotta Ball in his big body.
The Knicks didn't just have an answer, they took the NBA's best team, at the moment, completely out of their game. Coach Pop was upset!
But I couldn't be more happier being so wrong, not necessarily about Tim Duncan, but about the Knicks' chances tonight.
How about these guys..huh?!
