With 0.1 seconds left in double overtime against the Charlotte Bobcats last night, Jamal Crawford inbounded the ball right over the top of the cylinder, where David Lee curled off his defender to come open for a tip in that would win the game. It was the Knicks second buzzer beater in a row, and New York is now 2-0 since their brawl with the Nuggets.
The Knicks were down by almost 20 points in the first half, with the Garden crowd booing constantly. It looked as if the team was giving up, when they began to come back in the final minutes of the first half. Led by Channing Frye (30 pts. in the game), the Knicks charged back into a second half that they controlled the whole way. Lee had 10 points to go along with his 19 rebounds. Eddy "The Monster" Curry put up 29 points to continue his all-star caliber play that has come to be expected night in and night out.
At 11-17, the Knicks are only 1.5 games out of first in the underachieving Atlantic Division. As I said in a previous post, this three game stretch will be important. Tomorrow night the Knicks take on the Chicago Bulls, where a win would make a statement for this team, considering they have been playing without Steve Francis, Quentin Richardson, aand their three suspended players: Jared Jefferies, Nate Robinson, and Mardy Collins.
It seems as if the brawl has brought the team a bit closer together. They know they are going through this mess as a family, and seeing the team embrace each other after Lee's tip was a good sign. With wins aganst the Bulls and Sixers, this team could be on track.
NEWS AND NOTES:
- Michael Jordan was in attendance last night, as well as former Knicks Patrick Ewing, Charles Oakley, and John Starks. All players received a standing ovation, even Jordan...
- Also of note was that Spike Lee was NOT in attendance for one of the best games in the past couple years...sorry Spike.
- Stephon Marbury eclipsed the 15,000 point mark...congrats to Starbury.

Well, I just wrote an entire goddamn F*****g post about 3 pages long about the brawl tonight, but dumbass blogspot deleted it somehow. I'll write more about it in the next couple days.
For now I put the video up there, so enjoy. What are my thoughts? Quickly I'll say there's pros and cons:
Pros: The players defended each other, and wouldn't let any crap go down on their home court.
Cons: This team still sucks.
By the way...Stephon Marbury: 31 points, 8 assists. Too bad his best game of the year so far will be overshadowed by this fight that is for sure going to be blown out of proportion all over ESPN for the rest of the NBA season.
Also, Carmelo: I love you, but you were a little bitch tonight. You sucker punched Mardy Collins and ran away like a girl. Terrible. That's not the Melo I know and love from Syracuse.
More on this fiasco later. It's the weekend so I'll be back probably Monday.
