I’m sure Ray Allen would have rather faced Tim Hardaway Sr’s crossover as opposed to Jr’s pounding.
Let’s face it, things have not exactly gone the New York Knicks way this season, but for some reason good things happen when they face the Miami Heat.
The Knicks thrilled the Madison Square Garden Crowd with their fourth victory over the Heat in their last five regular season games with a 102-92 stunner.
Knicks 102 – Heat 92 - New York was led by Carmelo Anthony’s 29 points and Raymond Felton added 13 points and 14 assists. However, the most encouraging performance came from Amar’e Stoudemire who also had a double-double with 14 points and 11 boards.
Miami once again struggled on the glass as they were outrebounded 43-32 and outscored in the paint 52-42. LeBron James scored a game-high 32 points and Dwyane Wade added 23.
Nuggets 101 – Thunder 88 - Denver’s Randy Foye pumped in a season-high six three-pointers for the Nuggets — who have won four in a row after dropping eight straight. Ty Lawson added 16 points and 14 assists.
Half of Kevin Durant’s game-high 30 points came from the free throw line. Serge Ibaka grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds.
Here are some of the top plays from last night’s action.
