The Knicks continued their winning ways last night with another victory at Madison Square Garden. They yet again steamrolled their opponent and have now won five straight games. This was another solid team effort, and I’m starting to think that the Knicks are reading my blog this year and can contribute their success to my words of wisdom. No seriously, they are buying what Mike Woodson is selling. They are sharing the basketball, playing team defense, and showing a balanced offensive attack. You know what they say, shooting is contagious. I personally would like to see them jack up less three point attempts so they don’t have to rely on it come playoff time. However, I’m a firm believer of, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.”
As for last night’s game, I know everyone is saying, okay great you beat the Pistons. We can only play the teams that are on our schedule, and it’s only a positive that they continue to beat poor teams handily. Carmelo looked like Carmelo and scored 27 points on 10 of 17 from the field. Amar’e continues to impress with his scoring and most importantly his offensive efficiency(he had 20 points on 8 of 14 from the field). Last but certainly not least, Tyson Chandler has been a beast on the boards ripping down 20 rebounds for the third straight game. He became the first Knicks player since Willis Reed in 1969 to accomplish such a feat.
It’s all smiles in Knicks land of late, and they need to keep taking advantage of their easy schedule. They will look to keep the ball rolling against the Washington Wizards, Wednesday night @ 7:00 P.M.
