Knicks defeat Spurs: 'Astounding, exhilirating gem of a win'

Jason Kidd - Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

The New York Knicks continued their hot start to the season, going to 6-0 with a victory over the San Antonio Spurs.

The New York Knicks accomplished something Thursday night they had not done since 2003, defeating the San Antonio Spurs in San Antonio. The come-from-behind 104-100 victory keeps the 6-0 Knicks perfect on the season and provides further evidence that the Knicks may indeed be an elite team this season.

A very pumped up Seth Rosenthal of SB Nation's 'Posting and Toasting' called the Knicks' victory "an astounding, exhilarating gem of a win." Here is some of the other post-game reaction from around the Inter-Google:

Dime Magazine (dimemag.com) : The Knicks Can’t Be Stopped Even When ‘Melo Is; LeBron Puts The Nuggets To Sleep
It was a pretty game to watch what with New York only turning the ball over seven times and the Spurs’ starters combining for just two turnovers. J.R. Smith (17 points in 37 minutes) is not your average Sixth Man so far this season, but then again this isn’t your older sibling’s Knicks team. At 6-0 and playing mean defense with an offense where anyone can hit a shot, this actually might be your father’s Knicks team.

Guards spark perfect rally for statement win - NYPOST.com
Mike Woodson knows nobody can scoff at the Knicks’ unbeaten start now, not after last night’s comeback from 12 points down in the final seven minutes to stun the powerhouse Spurs, 104-100, at AT&T Center.

"It shows me that this team is for real,’’ said Woodson, who had never won in San Antonio as a head coach. "We beat a great team tonight.’’

We should just name one of these stars after LeBron at this point. Aside that, the story of the night was the Knicks dramatic comeback win, so the two guards that led that charge are getting stars tonight.
