Whatever message coach Mike Woodson gave to his team as they stared at a 13-3 deficit against the Sacramento Kings, worked. From the moment they came out of that timeout the Knicks outscored the Kings 117-68 for the rest of the game to romp to an easy 39-point victory.
The best part about the Knicks win was it was a total team effort. Franchise player Carmelo Anthony finished with 9-points (4/12 shooting), but he did have 5 assists and after the game he spoke to reporters waiting in front of his locker about the night.
Anthony touched on his lack of offensive contribution tonight: “Tonight was one of them games where, [I] try to find it elsewhere. We didn’t need my scoring tonight.Everybody contributed from that aspect of it. Just find guys, open, create something for everybody else. We made shots [which] opened the game up.”
