Phil Jackson Could Be Offered Huge Deal To Coach New York Knicks, According To Report

Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire have both supported New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson, giving their votes of confidence to the interim coach who helped turn around the Knickerbockers' season. But regardless of how well Woodson coaches, rumors will fly that the Knicks want a bigger-name coach to take over after this season.

The latest rumor sounds a little far-fetched, if only for the amount of money the Knicks are reportedly prepared to offer Phil Jackson. According to the Racine Journal-Times, the Knicks are willing to offer Jackson an enormous contract if they are knocked out in the first round of the NBA playoffs.

If the Knicks don't advance beyond the first round of the playoffs, I'm hearing they'll make a major -- repeat, major -- push to lure legendary coach Phil Jackson out of retirement. With money being no object, the scuttlebutt is the Knicks brass may offer the 'Zen Master' a four-year, $50 million deal.

Glen Grunwald Earns Full General Manger Status, Mike Woodson Could Be Next

The New York Knicks went from post-season outsiders to possible first-round upset favorites, and the man in charge of their front-office moves, general manager Glen Grunwald, was rewarded for the success Tuesday. Grunwald, who was given the interim general manager and executive vice president tags after Donnie Walsh stepped down last July, was officially handed the jobs by owner James Dolan.

The Knicks will officially announce the news Wednesday before they host the Los Angeles Clippers in their second-to-last regular-season contest.

"Glen has done a terrific job this season," Dolan said in a statement. "He is an intelligent, seasoned executive and we look forward to him continuing in the role of general manager for many years to come."

Meanwhile, many are now speculation that interim head coach Mike Woodson is next in line for a promotion. Especially, since star forward Carmelo Anthony said he'd love to see Woodson, who has helped lead the Knicks to a 16-6 record since taking over for Mike D'Antonio in March.

Knicks-Hawks Score: Carmelo Anthony Nets 39 As New York Clips Atlanta 113-112

Carmelo Anthony scoring a game-high 39 points, including the game-winning shot with 1 minute, 40 seconds remaining Sunday, to help lead the New York Knicks past the Atlanta Hawks 113-112 at the Phillips Center. Anthony scored the Knicks' last seven points, while rookie Iman Shumpert played outstanding late-game defense to help New York pull out the road victory.

Amare Stoudemire added 22 points and 12 rebounds for the Knicks (34-30), who did not play a lot of defense -- center Tyson Chandler was held out for a day of rest -- but scored enough points to improve to 34-30 with two games remaining on the regular season schedule.

Marvin Williams scored a team-high 29 points for the Hawks (38-26), who led 112-111 with 1:50 to go after Joe Johnson nailed a 3-pointer. However, the Knicks quickly got down the court and a Hawks' defensive lapse led to Anthony being wide-open for a go-ahead jumper, which gave New York a 113-112 lead.

Next week, the Knicks close out their regular season schedule when they host the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday, and then play at the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday.

Hawks Vs. Knicks: Tyson Chandler Will Not Play Sunday; Jared Jeffries Out For Remainder Of Regular Season

The New York Knicks visit the Atlanta Hawks Sunday afternoon (1 p.m. ET on ESPN), and will need to collect a victory without center and defensive presence Tyson Chandler, who will be receiving a much needed day off, reports via Twitter. The Knicks (33-30) and head coach Mike Woodson can afford to do this, as it already has locked up a Eastern Conference playoff spot.

Cervasio also is reporting that Jared Jeffries is shutdown for the Knicks final three regular-season games, as he's trying to recover from inflammation and soreness in the knee. Jeffries said he will be ready for the postseason, however, is not sure how many minutes he will play.

On Sunday, New York lost to the Miami Heat 93-85, however, the loss didn't hurt the Knicks when it comes to the playoff race, because both the Philadelphia 76ers and Bucks lost their respective games. New York is tied with Philly for seventh place.

Entering Tuesday's showdown, the Knicks are expecting center Tyson Chandler, who banged his knee in Sunday's loss, to play, however, star forward Amare Stoudemire is not expected to play as he's trying to recover from a bulging disc in his back.

Knicks Vs. Heat Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The New York Knicks will host LeBron James and the Miami Heat on Sunday, in a matinee at the Garden. Today's game could very well be a preview of things to come in the NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs. As it stands, the Heat (two seed) would play the Knicks (seven seed), if the season ended today. It's no guarantee, though, because the Sixers – who could pass the Knicks over the last few games – have the same record as the Knicks.


Has Jeremy Lin Played His Final Game As A Knick?

Sunday will be the third and final meeting between the Knicks and Heat this regular season. The Heat have won the previous two by double digits.

The Knicks will either gain or lose ground on the Sixers, who are idle today.

Knicks Roster 2012: Jerome Jordan Re-Assigned To D-League

If a NBA franchise is trying to develop a player for the future, an NBA playoff race is probably not the best to do it. That's probably why the New York Knicks decided to re-assign center Jerome Jordan to the NBA D-League on Monday.

The 7-footer, who has split time overseas but has seen a lot of the bench while with the Knicks, will play for the Erie Bayhawks. In just 19 games with the Knicks this season, Jordan averaged 4.8 minutes, 1.4 points and 1.2 rebounds.

Reports have Jordan joining the Bayhawks on Tuesday, and will be avaible to play for them Saturday night against Sioux Falls Skyforce on Saturday. During his two previous trips to Erie, Jordan averaged 18.0 ppg, 8.6 rpg in 32.6 mpg.

Knicks Vs. Bulls Final Score: Carmelo Anthony's Heroics Help New York Beat Chicago, 100-99, In Overtime

With his team needing a miracle on Easter Sunday, Carmelo Anthony provided two of them to help the New York Knicks collect a 100-99 victory over the Chicago Bulls at Madison Square Garden. Anthony scored a game-high 43 points, and not only made a last-second, game-tying 3-pointer at the end of regulation to help send the contest into overtime, but, he won the game with the same type of shot with 8.2 seconds remaining in the extra session.

The victory helps the Knicks (29-27) hang on to their slim one-game lead over the Milwuakee Bucks, who are trying to surpass New York for eighth place, the last playoff spot, in the Eastern Conference standings.

New York blew a 31-19, first-quarter lead, and trialed by nine points with five minutes left in the fourth quarter, however, with the odds stacked against them, they found themselves in the game with about a minute to go.

Trailing 91-88 with 19.4 second remaining, Chicago's Derrick Rose missed two free throws and gave the a final possession, which featured Anthony making this game-tying 3-pointer with 11.2 seconds to go in the fourth. The shot helped force overtime.

In overtime, the Knicks trailed by four, 99-95, with 2:51 to play and, again, rallied behind good defense and Anthony, who made a driving layup and sank the game-winner in legendary-like fashion.

Of course, it must be noted that on New York's final possession there were three missed shots and three rebounds, two by Anthony, who collected the ball with about 15 seconds to go and pulled-up for the win.

Knicks Vs. Bulls: New York Hosts Chicago In Big Eastern Conference Showdown

To say a Sunday victory for the New York Knicks would be huge is a understatement. That's because the Knicks, who own just a half game over the Milwaukee Bucks for the last playoff spot in Eastern Conference, host the first-place Chicago Bulls at 1:00 p.m. on ABC.

A loss for the Knicks (28-27) would lead to a two-way tie with the Bucks (28-28) for the last postseason spot with 10 games remaining on the regular-season schedule. A victory, however, would push New York's lead back up to a full game.

On Thursday, the Knicks earned a hard-fought victory at the Orland Magic, despite not having forward Amare Stoudemire, who may return sometime next week, and guard Jeremy Lin, who's more than likely done for the season.

The Bulls (43-13) have been in cruise control all season, even though, star point guard Derek Rose has been battle back spasms, which has forced him to miss a few games. Rose is a game-time decision come Sunday's contest.

Overall, this will be the third of a four-game series between these two teams. The Bulls won the first two contests, which were both close.

Pacers 112, Knicks 104: Knicks Blow Fourth Quarter Lead In Indiana

There were times during the New York Knicks' visit to the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday during which the Knicks looked the better, crisper, more motivated team. However, most of those moments came in the second and third quarters, and when the horn sounded, the Knicks found themselves on the losing end of a game that could be yet another huge turning point in this most tumultuous of seasons for New York. A 17-point lead wasn't enough as the Pacers poured in 40 fourth quarter points to knock off the Knicks and drop them back to the .500 mark at 27-27.


Recommended Reading: SB Nation New York NBA Power Rankings

Carmelo Anthony had his best scoring game of the season, scoring 39 points on 17-of-31 shooting, but the offense wasn't the problem for the Knicks. Sure, they became stagnant in a fourth quarter in which they only scored 17 points, and the rest of the roster largely struggled from the field. But the Knicks seemed to lose their composure and defensive intensity in the final quarter, allowing Danny Granger to score 14 of his 27 overall points.

Both teams came out of the gate on fire as the first quarter ended 31 apiece. As the shooting tailed off on both sides, the Knicks were able to open up an eight point lead heading into halftime, finishing the second quarter on a 15- run. In the third quarter, the Knicks ran everything through Anthony and had success. He looked as good and as fluid as he has all season, posting up his defenders, making jumpshots over them or driving right past them for high-percentage shots. But the Knicks let their foot off the gas just a bit and weren't able to ratchet it back up, leading to the poor fourth quarter.

It seems to be an unpopular view among Knicks fans, but the type of offense the Knicks ran tonight - through Anthony, posting him up, isolating him with mismatches - is what will serve the Knicks best the rest of the way. As long as Jeremy Lin and Amare Stoudemire are out injured, Anthony will be the unquestioned main guy. If the Knicks are to hold off the Milwaukee Bucks for the final spot in the playoffs, the offensive performance they showed tonight will likely do.

The defense? That will have to improve.

NBA Standings And Schedule 2012: Knicks Clinging To Last Playoff Spot

The month of April arrived Sunday, and that means two things: April Fools pranks and the conclusion of the 2012 NBA Season is drawing ever so closer. For New York Knicks fans the next 26 days could be some of the most stressful, as their team is clinging onto a 2 1/2-game lead for the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot.

On Friday, the Knicks downed the Cleveland Cavaliers, 91-75, to keep thier slim margin over the Milwaukee Bucks idle, however, there's still a lot of work to do in the next month. First, the Knicks overcome the loss of point guard Jeremy Lin, and then try to weave their way through the toughest schedule left in the NBA.

J.R. Smith came off the bench to score a team-high 20 points Saturday to help the New York Knicks roll past the Cleveland Cavaliers, 91-75, at Madison Square Garden.

Coming off their impressive victory over Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic, the New York Knicks will look to gain more ground in the Eastern Conference standings as they travel to Atlanta to face the Hawks on Friday.

The Knicks are currently third in the Atlantic Division and eighth in the Eastern Conference. They only trail the Sixers and Celtics by 2.5 games in the Atlantic, and catching both would earn New York a top four seed.

Knicks Vs. Magic Final Score: New York Coasts To 108-86 Blowout Win

The New York Knicks hosted the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden and more or less put on a clinic. The Magic brought their stellar 32-18 record to town, but the Knicks were attempting to stay hot, looking for their eighth win in their last night games and the victory that would put them over .500. In the end, that desire won out, as the Knicks overcame a shaky first quarter and coasted to a 108-86 win.


Anthony Needs Help With Stoudemire Out | Should Knicks Start Thinking Big?

The Magic outscored the Knicks 29-25 in the first quarter, but after that it was all New York. In particular, the Knicks gained their momentum in a 32-12 second quarter and just kept dropping in buckets. They entered halftime with a 16-point lead and opened the second half with a stunning 29-8 run, leading by 39 at one point. The Magic began turning things around at the end of the third quarter and into the fourth quarter, going on a 22-3 run of their own, but still trailed 20 points.

The Knicks were shorthanded, playing without Jeremy Lin and Amar'e Stoudemire due to injuries. They ended up getting key contributions up and down the lineup. Steve Novak put up 16 points in 19 minutes. J.R. Smith had 12 points. Baron Davis contributed 11 points and seven rebounds, while Carmelo Anthony and Iman Shumpert led all scorers by each putting up 25.

Knicks Vs. Magic Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

On Wednesday night, the New York Knicks and Orlando Magic meet in Madison Square Garden for another important game in this compacted NBA season.

The Knicks are waiting on pins and needles to find out who will be in the lineup Wednesday night, with Jeremy Lin (knee) and Carmelo Anthony (groin) both questionable. Jared Jeffries (knee) and Amare Stoudemire (back) are out for at least the next several games.


Injury Updates: Amare Stoudemire | Carmelo Anthony | Jeremy Lin

New York is trying to build off of some nice momentum. The Knicks took care of the Milwaukee Bucks - albeit in a brutal game to watch - on Monday and are looking to make it three in a row tonight.

If New York can grab a victory, it would be the first time the team is over .500 since Jan. 12th.

The Magic are well entrenched in the playoffs sporting a 32-18 record, good enough for third in the East right now only behind Chicago and Miami. Even the Dwight Howard drama couldn't bring this team down. After winning its last three games, the Knicks will have a hot team on their hands.

TV: MSG and ESPN

Time: 7 p.m. ET

Knicks vs. Bucks: Carmelo Anthony, New York Grind Out Crucial Victory Over Milwaukee

With two of the New York Knicks' top players down and out with injuries, it was time for Carmelo Anthony to step up.

Despite suffering a groin injury of his own, Anthony scored 28 points and hauled in 12 rebounds in his best scoring effort in quite some time to help the Knicks to a 89-80 victory over the visiting Milwaukee Bucks. The win got the Knicks back to .500 at 25-25 and put them 2.5 games ahead of the Bucks for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.


Carmelo Anthony Re-injures Groin | SI: Knicks' Playoff Hopes Rest With 'Melo

It wasn't an offensive basketball fan's dream. The teams combined for 36 percent shooting from the field and 43 turnovers. Early on, however, it looked like the Bucks might run away with the game thanks to the white-hot shooting of Mike Dunleavy. Off the bench, Dunleavy had 24 first half points, helping the Bucks to a five-point advantage at the break. At one point in the second quarter, Dunleavy had 12 straight points and the Bucks led by nine, but the second half was a totally different story. The Bucks scored just 26 points in the third and fourth quarters, with Dunleavy scoring just two.

It wasn't a brilliant shooting night for Anthony, who made eight of his 20 shot attempts, but the Knicks' best scorer found his way to the free throw line 12 times and made each one. It was the type of game the Knicks needed from Anthony, with Amare Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin both sidelined with injuries. Stoudemire is out indefinitely with a bulging disk in his back, and if he's out for a long period of time, more of the scoring load will fall on Anthony. Hopefully for the Knicks' sake, Anthony's groin doesn't become a bigger issue.

Free throw shooting in general was huge for the Knicks, as they scored just about a third of their points from the stripe. They needed it badly, given that most of the team struggled mightily from the field. Baron Davis started in place of Lin and played a season-high 34 minutes, finishing with 13 points on 3-of-12 shooting and seven assists. Davis also committed eight of the Knicks' 23 turnovers. Off the bench, J.R. Smith was only able to make three out of 13 shots, but found another way to contribute by pulling down 10 rebounds.

Just as the Knicks struggled, the Bucks (22-27) helped out with poor shooting of their own. Brandon Jennings, who usually gives the Knicks fits, attempted 22 shots but made just six. Newly acquired Monta Ellis was silent, finishing with just four points.

The Knicks can't afford to have any more of their key players miss time. Anthony figures to play through his groin injury as long as possible, just as he has all year through other nagging injuries. Whether or not the Knicks are at full strength, they'll have to win games the way they did on Monday, by grinding it out.

Amare Stoudemire Injury Update: Knicks Forward Out 'Indefinitely', Will Undergo Non-Surgical Treatment

The New York Knicks announced on Monday that forward Amare Stoudemire will be out indefinitely while he undergoes non-surgical treatment for a bulging disc in his back.

Knicks interim head coach Mike Woodson was not certain that Stoudemire could return for the playoffs.

Stoudemire averages 17.6 points, 8 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game in 33.2 minutes per game for the Knicks this season. He is second on the team in scoring and rebounding this season. With the loss of Stoudemire, the Knicks are starting a three-guard lineup Monday night against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Knicks Vs. Bucks Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The New York Knicks host the MIlwaukee Bucks at Madison Square Garden Monday night (7:30 p.m. ET, TV: MSG, Radio: ESPN 1050 AM) in a critical game. The Knicks (24-25) are 1.5 games ahead of the Bucks (22-26) for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Both teams have fewer than 20 games remaining.

"That is a real big game for us. Going up against them, fighting for that eighth spot. The way we have been playing...we want to continue to keep playing. We need that game. We are going to be doing everything in our power to get that game," Carmelo Anthony told Knicksnow.

The Knicks will face the Bucks without reserve center Jared Jeffries, sidelined for the next two weeks due to inflammation in his surgically repaired right knee. Amar'e Stoudemire, who was experiencing a back issue Saturday vs. Detroit, expects to play.

Milwaukee hold the tie-breaker advantage over New York, having won both meetings between the teams thus far this season. That makes it crucial for the Knicks to stay ahead of the Bucks for the final playoff spot.

The Bucks have a new look since the last time they faced the Knicks. Prior to the trade deadline, the Bucks shipped Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson out of town for the prolific guard Monta Ellis. Ellis is averaging 13.8 points per game thus far with the Bucks. Ellis left Saturday's game in the fourth quarter with an injured hand and his official status for Monday is unknown.

Knicks Vs. 76ers: New York Wins Fifth Straight, 82-79

The New York Knicks seems to be a series of phenomenons this season. This time interim coach Mike Woodson has the Knicks rolling. Woodson's team won their fifth straight game on Wednesday night, beating Philadelphia by a final score of 82-79. The Knicks are now 5-0 under Woodson.

New York controlled the boards against the Sixers. Led by Amare Stoudemire's nine rebounds, the Knicks had a total of 47 on the night, topping the Sixers' 39 rebounds.


Linsanity! Jeremy Lin Rises To Challenge In Fourth Quarter

Stoudemire also led the Knicks in scoring with 21 points, hitting eight of 14 shots from the field. Jeremy Lin finished the game with 18 points and five rebounds. Carmelo Anthony had 10 points and five rebounds.

Elton Brand led the Sixers, picking up a double-double with 12 rebounds and 12 points. Jrue Holiday had 16 points, the team's top scorer.

The Knicks play in Toronto on Friday. They beat the Raptors, 106-87, on Tuesday night.

Knicks Vs. 76ers Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

After being completely left for dead – and for good reason – the New York Knicks are back with vengeance under new head coach Mike Woodson. They will look to make it five victories in a row Wednesday evening against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Since Woodson has taken over, New York is a perfect 4-0 including two very quality wins over the Indiana Pacers.

With a new-found defensive intensity even from stars Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire, the Knicks are starting to resemble contenders with a bevy of talent on the roster.

A win tonight could push them to within one game of .500, a mark they haven’t been over since January 12th.


Related: Jeremy Lin Shows He Can Play The Mike Woodson Way

The Sixers have been an impressive bunch for most of the year. However, recent times haven’t been so good for Philly.

Doug Collins has watched his team drop 11 of its past 17 games including a five-game losing streak. The good news for the 76ers is they’re coming off a win against Charlotte and beat the Knicks just a week ago. Of course, this is a totally different New York squad at the moment.

Philly still owns a solid four-game lead over the Knicks in the Atlantic Division, but a New York victory could start making fans in the city of brotherly love sweat just a little.

Knicks 106, Raptors 87: New York Wins 4th Straight Under Mike Woodson

The New York Knicks continue to play solid ball under interim head coach Mike Woodson, as they defeated the Toronto Raptors 106-87 Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden for their fourth straight win. The Knicks never trailed after the 5:20 mark of the first quarter in their second win over Toronto this season.

Amare Stoudemire led all players with 22 points, adding 12 rebounds to help the Knicks to a 46-30 advantage on the boards. Jeremy Lin also had his seventh double-double of the season with 18 points and 10 assists. Carmelo Anthony added another 17 points and eight rebounds, but shot 5-for-15 from the floor.

The Raptors were led by 17 points from DeMar DeRozan and an 11-point, nine-assist performance from point guard Jose Calderon. They couldn't overcome the Knicks' renewed defensive energy, however, turning the ball over 17 times. New York racked up 12 steals on the night.

The Knicks remain busy this week, with three games still to play. First, New York will face the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center in a nationally-televised game on ESPN. After a day off, the Knicks close out the week with a rematch against the Raptors in Toronto before returning home to take on the Detroit Pistons on Saturday.

Knicks 115, Pacers 100: Second Straight Blowout Victory For New York

Mike Woodson for mayor!

Not quite, but the interim coach of the New York Knicks has two blowout wins in his first two games at the helm. Two nights after pasting the Portland Trailblazers hours after Mike D’Antoni resigned from his coaching post, the Knicks responded with a 115-100 victory over the Indiana Pacers. The Knicks, who improved to 20-24 on the season, were boosted by Tyson Chandler, who co-led the team in scoring with 16 points, grabbing seven rebounds and playing at a +23 clip. But much like the win over the Blazers, this one was over early.


Related: Baron Davis Won't Play Saturday

The Knicks jumped out to a 50-31 halftime lead, playing efficiently on offense and defending the way their fans hope they would under Woodson. Two games is not nearly a legitimate sample size, and the Knicks have faced two offensively-challenged teams since the coaching change, but the defensive effort in these first two games has been there. Offensively, the Knicks spread things around. Carmelo Anthony had just 12 points, but did chip in with seven rebounds and five assists despite making just four of his 12 shot attempts. Amare Stoudemire only notched 8 points.

There were reports earlier Friday that Woodson might soon replace Jeremy Lin at starting point guard. But in the two games under Woodson, Lin has been very efficient offensively. Tonight, he finished with 13 points and five assists, taking just seven field goal attempts and turning the ball over three times. Lin will have to continue his solid play, as Baron Davis left the game with a hamstring injury in perhaps the only negative for the Knicks all night.

The Knicks and Pacers get right back at it on Saturday, this time in Indianapolis.

Knicks Vs. Pacers: Baron Davis Leaves Game With Hamstring Injury

New York Knicks guard Baron Davis left the team's game against the Indiana Pacers Friday night with an apparent tweaked hamstring and will not return. Davis, the backup to point guard Jeremy Lin, is no stranger to injuries at this point in his career, as he has already sat out seven weeks this season with a back injury.

Davis is currently averaging 4.5 points per game and 5.6 assists per game while playing 17.3 minutes per game.

There is no timetable yet for when Davis will be able to return.

Knicks News: Amar'e Stoudemire, 'Joking Around Has To Stop'

The New York Knicks dropped their sixth straight contest Monday, as they lost at the Chicago Bulls 104-99 in an Eastern Conference showdown. The loss knocked New York out of the playoff picture and has fans searching for answers.

Well, after the game Monday, star forward Amar'e Stoudemire gave his opinion on what the Knicks should do to start turning things around.

"We got to be in early, got to get ourselves mentally prepared, in the weight room, getting our bodies ready, watching film,’’ Stoudemire said. "Joking around has to stop at some point, especially at a time when we’re the eighth seed and not playing well. The time is now. There’s no time for fun and games.’’

Those are strong words coming from Stoudemire, who's basically calling out teammates for not caring about losing. Now, one has to think that if this is the case, and players aren't taking things seriously enough, then head coach Mike D'Antoni's job is on the line. [See: The Mike D'Antoni Watch]

Once a head coach loses his players' focus and attention, then a move needs to be made. It seems that Stoudemire is trying to get the attention for his teammates.

Bulls 104, Knicks 99: New York Loses Sixth Straight

The New York Knicks lost their sixth straight game Monday night, falling to the Chicago Bulls 104-99. The Knicks hung tough through three quarters, heading into the fourth down one point. Derrick Rose was too strong down the stretch, however, scoring 10 of his 32 points in the game's final stanza and dishing out seven assists.

The Bulls went on an 8-2 run inside the 5-minute mark to effectively put the game out of reach for the with the help of effective defense. New York shot 46.3 percent from the floor, but needed to be much more efficient to overcome a 56-38 rebounding advantage for the Bulls. Tyson Chandler and Carmelo Anthony had 10 and eight boards, respectively, but got little help from their teammates. Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah combined for 23 boards on their own.


Related: Mike D'Antoni Is Back On The Hot Seat

Anthony led the Knicks with 21 points, but needed 8-for-21 shooting from the floor to get there. Amare Stoudemire scored his 20 points more efficiently, but added just three rebounds. Jeremy Lin was abused, as many are, by Derrick Rose. He ran the offense well for the most part, however, with 15 points and eight assists to three turnovers.

The Knicks dropped to ninth place in the Eastern Conference after the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the New Jersey Nets on Monday. New York closes out the week with home games against the Portland Trail Blazers and the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday and Friday, respectively.

Knicks Vs. 76ers Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The reeling New York Knicks get a chance to get back on the winning track Sunday (Noon ET, MSG, NBA TV) when they host the Atlantic Division leading Philadelphia 76ers at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks just completed a road trip during which they lost all four games, falling to 18-22 on the season.

The struggling Knicks are in eighth place in the Eastern Conference, holding on to the final playoff spot. The Milwaukee Bucks and Cleveland Cavaliers are just two games behind the Knicks. Philadelphia (24-17) is 5.5 games ahead of the third-place Knicks in the Atlantic Division.

The Knicks are just 2-6 since Carmelo Anthony rejoined the Knicks lineup, joining Jeremy Lin. The Knicks should get a boost today as center Tyson Chandler is expected back in the lineup after missing two games. Backup center Jared Jeffries is not expect to play.

"We have a long way to go as a team but we have a lot of good pieces," forward Steve Novak said. "If we're just able to blend those and figure it out, by the end of the year were going to be tough."

Knicks Vs. Spurs: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

After losing the first two games of their four game road trip, the New York Knicks will try to salvage some semblance of respectability against the San Antonio Spurs Wednesday night.

New York is coming off of a defeat against the defending champion Mavericks. Dirk Nowitzki started off slow, only shooting 1-of-8 from the field in the first half. However, the second half was a different story as he poured in 24 points to lead Dallas to a 95-85 victory.

The Knicks have to find some continuity. On a night where Amare Stoudemire finally got going by scoring 26 points and grabbing seven rebounds, Carmelo Anthony went for a season-low six points.

New York also saw its troubles continue at the foul line. The Knicks shot 15-of-23 from the stripe. Even more concerning, they turned the ball over 16 times, adding to their league-high total.

The Spurs won't be easy to beat with that type of performance. Even though San Antonio has been alternating wins and losses of late, they're a top team. The bad news with that streak is tonight should be a victory by that metric.

Gregg Popovich has somehow coaxed another fine year out of a seemingly ageless Tim Duncan, who is averaging just over 14 points and eight rebounds per game.

The Spurs are also a very tough team to beat at home with a 14-3 record.

Mavericks 95, Knicks 85: New York's Late Run Not Enough In Dallas

An early fourth-quarter run fueled by their bench made it close, but the New York Knicks were unable to build enough momentum to avoid falling to the Dallas Mavericks Tuesday night at American Airlines Center.

Dirk Nowitzki led all scorers with 28 points, while Amare Stoudemire powered the Knicks (18-20) with 26. Carmelo Anthony scored just six points on 2-for-12 shooting, his lowest total since Feb. 6 against the Utah Jazz, when he was injured six minutes into the game.

Dallas (23-17) led by as many as 15 points and held a 77-63 lead entering the fourth quarter, but Steve Novak (13 points) and Iman Shumpert (five points, three assists and three steals) fueled a run with New York's second unit that put the Knicks ahead 78-77 with 4:54 remaining in the game. In fact, the Mavericks didn't score in the fourth quarter until Nowitzki nailed a 14-foot jumper at the 4:33 mark.

But as quickly as they had developed momentum, the Knicks lost it as the Mavericks built a 14-0 run over the next two-and-a-half minutes.

New York will remain in Texas Wednesday night for a game against the San Antonio Spurs (25-12). Tip-off is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET.

Piece netted a game-best 34 points, including a game-tying 3-pointer that helped force an extra session with less than 5 seconds to go in regulation, while Rondo tallied a monstrous triple-double (18 points, 20 assists and 17 rebounds) to propel the Boston Celtics (19-17) to a their fourth straight victory.

Down eight points to begin the fourth quarter, the Knicks rallied behind Jeremy Lin and Carmelo Anthony, who's bucket with 35 seconds to go gave New York a 101-100 lead. After a defensive stop and two free throws from Steve Novak, the Knicks led by three, but Pierce pulled the trigger on a contested 3-pointer and nailed it.

In overtime, the deciding factor was Rondo, who netted five points and dished out two assists, and the Knicks poor shooting, which featured missing their final eight shots.

Anthony finished the game with a team-best 25 points, while Amar'e Stoudemire tallied 16 points and 13 rebounds. Lin scored seven of his 14 points in the fourth quarter and dished out just four assists.

Knicks Vs. Cavaliers: 34-Point Turnaround Spurs New York To 120-103 Win

For more than a full half of basketball, the New York Knicks seemed stuck in the All Star break.

A 17-point deficit in the second quarter of Wednesday night's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers (13-20) put the Knicks (18-18) in an early hole, but a 34-point turnaround in the second half culminated in a 120-103 win at Madison Square Garden. Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 22 points and also added five rebounds and four assists, while Jeremy Lin began the second half of the season on a strong note with 19 points, 13 assists, five rebounds and only one turnover.

Trailing 61-49 at halftime, the Knicks spurred their comeback by outscoring the Cavaliers 33-19 in the third quarter. Steve Novak was especially critical in bringing New York Back, adding 17 points off the bench on 6-for-9 shooting (5-for-8 from 3-point range). Tyson Chandler notched his 12th double-double of the season with 13 points and 15 rebounds, while also playing inspired defense for the great majority of his 31 minutes on the floor.

Along with Chandler, Amare Stoudemire's 14 points gave New York a strong inside presence. The Knicks outscored the Cavaliers 68-46 in points in the paint, though New York was also able to push the ball up and down the court in the second half. The Knicks scored 17 fast break points to the Cavaliers' 10, and Cleveland's 17 turnovers played a significant role in that disparity. Chandler finished with three steals (as well as four blocks), while Iman Shumpert also added three with heavy on-ball pressure.

For Cleveland, Antawn Jamison scored a game-high 23 points while Kyrie Irving added 22 with seven assists.

The Knicks have the rest of the week off before traveling to Boston to play the Celtics Sunday at 1 p.m. ET on ABC.

Nets Vs. Knicks Final Score: Deron Williams Outshines Jeremy Lin In 100-92 Nets Win

Deron Williams scored 38 points before fouling out with 3:06 left in the fourth quarter to lead the New Jersey Nets to a 100-92 win over the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Monday night. Jeremy Lin was relatively subdued by Williams and the Nets defense, needing 18 field goals attempts to get to 21 points on the night. Unfortunately for New York, Lin was unable to prove that he could go left with much consistency, nor that he could win at the side of Carmelo Anthony.

Melo was back on the court after spending seven games sidelined with a groin injury. He didn't appear limited, playing 37 minutes. He had just 11 points in his re-debut, going 4-for-11 from the field. The hope is that Anthony still needs time to shake off the rust and build chemistry with his new point guard. Until then, questions will persist whether the two players can coexist.

Of course, Williams played a major role in the Nets win too. He hit a career high eight 3-pointers for the game, and scored 18 points in the third quarter to help put New Jersey up 82-64 heading into the final stanza. New York mounted a miniature comeback after Williams fouled out. Down 13, they drew to within six points with 12 seconds left in the game. They ran out of clock, however, giving the Nets their second win in three games.

Kris Humphries was aggressive in the lane on both ends throughout the game, hauling in 14 rebounds to go with his 14 points. MarShon Brooks also added 18 points. For the Knicks, Landry Fields had a double-double with 10 points and 11 boards. Amare Stoudemire pitched in 17 points, as well.

Knicks Schedule: Carmelo Anthony Expected Back As Knicks Host Nets

The last time the New York Knicks and New Jersey Nets played, on Feb. 4, Jeremy Lin was a seldom-used point guard who came off the bench to have a career night. It was a nice story. Now, on Feb. 20, Lin is an international superstar who has saved the Knicks' season and turned them from also-rans into contenders in the NBA's Eastern Conference. After a thrilling 104-97 victory on Sunday over the defending champion Dallas Mavericks, the Knicks (16-16) try to get over the .500 mark for the first time since they were 6-5 after a loss on Jan. 12.


Recommended Reading: Mike D'Antoni's Best Team?

And while Linsanity was born against the Nets (9-24) just a few weeks ago, the Knicks today look a lot different. After Lin led the Knicks to an improbable win that night, nobody really knew what Jeremy Lin would be. Chances were it was just a career night, and the Knicks would still be searching for a point guard while they toiled away at the basement of the Eastern Conference. Instead, Lin has enjoyed one of the most impressive runs of anybody in the league, and he's completely transformed the Knicks back into a Mike D'Antoni-type team; a lot of possessions and a run-and-gun style that heavily features the 3-point shot. The Knicks have added J.R Smith, who had 15 points in his Knicks debut on Sunday. All of a sudden, the Knicks are a very deep and talented team that is a force to be reckoned with. On Monday, the biggest question of all gets its first test: How will Carmelo Anthony fit back into this new-look, Lin-led Knicks team?

Interestingly enough, Anthony featured in the birth of Linsanity, the Knicks' win on Feb. 4 over the Nets. It wasn't pretty, as in 35 minutes he went just 3-of-15 from the field and finished with 11 points. But Anthony is the one who vouched for Lin to play originally, and many forget that Anthony has played with very good point guards in the past -- most notably Andre Miller and Chauncey Billups during his time in Denver. Anthony, who has missed the Knicks' last seven games with a groin injury, now has something to prove, which could be a scary thing for opposing teams.

Knicks Vs. Mavericks Final Score: Jeremy Lin's 28 Points Help New York Beat Dallas, 104-97

Jeremy Lin netted 16 of his team-best 28 points in the second half, including a huge 3-pointer with 2:57 remaining in the game Sunday, to help the New York Knicks down the NBA's defending champions, the Dallas Mavericks, 104-97 at Madison Square Garden Sunday afternoon.

Lin dished out a game-best and career-high 14 assists and paired with 3-point sharpshooter, Steve Novak, to combine to shoot 7-for-11 from behind the 3-point arc (Lin 3-for-6) and help the Knicks earn their eighth victory in nine games. The Knicks (16-16) are now 7-1 with Lin as the starting point guard and have reached the .500 mark for the first time since Jan. 7.

Newly acquired forward J.R. Smith played 30 minutes and tallied nine of his 15 points in the first quarter, while Novak tallied all 14 of his points in the fourth quarter. Tyson Chandler added 14 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks, while veteran point guard Baron Davis suited up but did not play.

The Mavs' Dirk Nowitzki ended the game with 34 points, but again, the story was Lin, who made big play after big play, including this steal and dunk in the third quarter.

Lin and the Knicks are at it again Monday, as they host the New Jersey Nets (7:30 p.m. on MSG).

Knicks Vs. Mavericks: Baron Davis, J.R. Smith Will Dress But Playing Time Not Guaranteed

Two more players will be wearing a New York Knicks jersey Sunday, as it's being reported that veteran point guard Baron Davis and newly acquired forward J.R. Smith will suit up for an inter-conference contest (1 p.m. ET on ESPN) against the NBA's defending champions, the Dallas Mavericks, at Madison Square Garden.

Though, both players will be in Knicks' uniforms it's not guaranteed that both players will step on the hardwood.

Early Sunday morning, Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News was reporting that Davis, who missed New York's first 31 games because of a herniated disk in his back, was expecting to see playing time, however, Knicks' head coach Mike D'Antoni wasn't making any promises before the game

Knicks Vs. Mavericks: Baron Davis, J.R. Smith Could Play As New York Hosts Dallas

Star forward Carmelo Anthony may not be in the New York Knicks lineup Sunday to help point guard Jeremy Lin take on the defending NBA champions, the Dallas Mavericks, at Madison Square Garden (1 p.m. ET on ESPN), but veteran point guard Baron Davis and newly acquired forward J.R. Smith could be.

That's good news for the Knicks (15-16) who're trying to bounce-back from Friday night's 89-85 loss to the New Orleans Hornets Friday, which proved that it will be tough for Lin -- who netted 26 points but committed a season-high 10 turnovers -- to win on his own. The loss snapped a six-game winning streak for the Knicks, who currently hanging on to the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference standings.

If Davis, who signed a one-year deal Dec. 19 but hasn't played because of a herniated disc in his back, can play he'll bring more leadership and talent off the bench, while Smith, who had been playing in China and signed with the Knicks just a few days ago, is a 3-point shooting threat.

Meanwhile, the Mavs' (20-11) enter Sunday's contest winners of their last 17 of 19 and have a five-game winning streak at MSG.

Dallas star forward Dirk Nowitzki has been on a roll lately, averaging 24.3 point per game and shooting 50.0-percent from the field in the last eight games. On Friday, Nowitzki scored 24 of his 28 points in the second half of the Mavs' 82-75 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Knicks Schedule: Jeremy Lin, Knicks Host Hornets Looking To Reach Winning Record

The New York Knicks left Boston on Friday, Feb. 3 after a crushing defeat to the Celtics. They were 8-15. The season was slipping away, and any loss thereafter could have ended Mike D'Antoni's tenure as Knicks head coach. Despite playing in back-to-back games, the Knicks had to wake up on Saturday and gear up for another game, at home to the Nets. It didn't start well. The Knicks found themselves down 12 points early.

Enter Jeremy Lin.

Now a victory on Feb. 17, exactly two weeks since that loss in Boston, and the Knicks will find themselves above the .500 mark. Calling it a stunning turn of events would be a gross understatement. A winning record at any point during the season seemed like a long shot those two short weeks ago. Now at 15-15, the Knicks host the struggling New Orleans Hornets as basketball's hottest team, with the unlikeliest of players leading the way.

There's really no rational explanation for what's happened to the Knicks, and for Lin's success in leading them on this streak. But numbers are numbers, and the only true way to quantify this thing is to look at the Knicks' record. Quite simply, they're 7-0 since Lin started getting serious minutes. His numbers have been astounding during this seven-game stretch: 24.4 points per game, 9.1 assists per game, and even his 4 rebounds per game is impressive. He's totally saved the Knicks' season, his coach's job, and a fanbase's sanity.

Of course the elephant in the room is the Knicks' prized possession, Carmelo Anthony, and since Lin's surge the question has been whether or not Anthony can assimilate himself back into the team without disrupting the good karma. Amare Stoudemire has returned from bereavement the past two games, and the Knicks haven't missed a beat, even if Stoudemire hasn't exactly lit it up yet. The Anthony-Lin tandem fears have been quelled a bit in the past few days, as reports have surfaced -- and have been confirmed by Lin -- that Anthony vouched for Lin to get playing time before the Linsanity all started.

Since coming to the Knicks, Anthony has earned the reputation as a ball-stopper. It's not completely unfounded, but there's also a reason for it, especially Anthony's play early this season. What Lin's insertion has shown is that every basketball team on earth is going to be better with competent point guard play. In today's NBA, great point guard play can make an otherwise mediocre team a good one (see the Boston Celtics with Rajon Rondo). It can make a good team a great one (see the Chicago Bulls with Derrick Rose). Where Lin falls in that discussion and where the Knicks can ultimately be remains to be seen, but the idea that Anthony will struggle with Lin is a flawed one. Anthony had his best seasons in Denver playing with Chauncey Billups and Andre Miller.

Anthony is unlikely to feature against the Hornets (6-23) as he recovers from a rash of injuries. He's expected back on Sunday when the Knicks host the Dallas Mavericks, which will pose the biggest threat to derailing Linsanity yet. But before Sunday, Lin cam help take the Knicks from 8-15 all the way to 16-15 in just two short weeks. After that, who knows. But why stop now?

Knicks Schedule: Still Buzzing After Jeremy Lin's Dramatic Game Winner, Knicks Host Kings

Jeremy Lin is about to get another hero's welcome. Tickets on the secondary market for Wednesday's game between the New York Knicks and Sacramento Kings have skyrocketed amid the chaos and Linsanity of Jeremy Lin's dramatic 3-point game-winner a night ago in Toronto. Scoring the final six points in the game, Lin and the Knicks' improbable run reached six straight games, and now the Knicks (14-15) are just one victory away from reaching the .500 mark, a plateau that seemed perhaps unreachable for the rest of the season just two weeks ago.

Jeremy Lin is about to get another hero's welcome. Tickets on the secondary market for Wednesday's game between the New York Knicks and Sacramento Kings have skyrocketed amid the chaos and Linsanity of Jeremy Lin's dramatic 3-point game-winner a night ago in Toronto. Scoring the final six points in the game, Lin and the Knicks' improbable run reached six straight games, and now the Knicks (14-15) are just one victory away from reaching the .500 mark, a plateau that seemed perhaps unreachable for the rest of the season just two weeks ago.

At this point, the task of trying to explain this whole thing is becoming impossible. The main question heading into last night's game was how the return of one of the Knicks' stars, Amare Stoudemire, would affect the synergy built during the Lin renaissance. It certainly wasn't seamless; Lin turned the ball over eight times, many coming in the first half, and the Knicks did not play well as a team to get down 17 points to an underwhelming Raptors side. The Lin-Stoudemire tandem needs more than just one game to be fairly judged, but Stoudemire did finish with 21 points and 9 rebounds, an impressive performance given the circumstances -- he's still going through a personal tragedy with the loss of his older brother just 10 days ago.


More: All video's of Lin and last night's win

Stoudemire and Lin do figure to be a perfect pick-and-roll fit, and they should get a good chance on Wednesday against the Kings to flourish, as Sacramento (10-18) is one of the league's worst defensive teams. They rank last in the league in points allowed per game (101.3), and are fourth-worst in defensive rating (108.2 points allowed per 100 possessions). The Kings can certainly score the ball, with talented offensive players in Tyreke Evans, DeMarcus Cousins and Marcus Thornton, but one thing that's been overlooked during the Linsanity is the play of the Knicks' defense.

In the Knicks' past two wins, last Saturday at Minnesota and Tuesday in Toronto, the Knicks have given up 11 and 12 points in the fourth quarter, respectively. A huge reason for that has been the defensive play of Iman Shumpert who, understandably given the way Lin dramatically scored the final six points, probably played as important a role as anyone in the Knicks' victory over the Raptors. Shumpert's pickpocket of Jose Calderon and ensuing dunk to bring the Knicks to within three points in the final moments was the exclamation point to a dominant fourth quarter defensive performance. Calderon had 25 points in the game's first three quarters while mainly being guarded by Lin. The Knicks switched Shumpert on to Calderon (props to Mike D'Antoni). Calderon finished the game with 25 points.

Tyson Chandler pulled down two huge offensive rebounds late in the game, including on the Knicks' final possession to allow Lin to make his now famous 3-pointer. Stoudemire played a very good second half after an understandable sluggish start, converting a few crucial fourth quarter hoops.

The simple point is, and what should perhaps be the biggest story of all, is that Lin's insertion into the lineup has made the Knicks a better team. It sure sounds corny and cheesy, but Lin has inspired every Knick to dig a little deeper and work just a bit harder. Some guys, like Jared Jeffries or Tyson Chandler didn't need the push, but Landry Fields and Shumpert look miles better and more motivated in the past six games. Amare Stoudemire has no choice but to buy in and start scrapping too. Carmelo Anthony, when he gets back? Same thing, no choice.

And that of course remains the elephant in the room. But it's a discussion for another day, as soon as that may be. For another day, let's all just enjoy the ride.

Jeremy Lin: SI.com Has Gone Lin-sane

Behind 20 points from point guard Jeremy Line, who knocked down the game-winning free throw in the closing moments, the New York Knicks defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves, 100-98, in a inter-conference contest Saturday. The win marked the fourth straight for New York, which hasn't lost since Lin entered the starting lineup, and has started a nationwide frenzy over the Asian-American phenom.

Over at SI.com's NBA page there is four columns written about Lin, the Harvard University grade from Palo Alto, CA. Here's a brief look at the features on Jeremy Lin.

As Linsanity grows, Jeremy Lin gets praise from Steve Nash and calls from David Letterman - Sam Amick - SI.com

"As Steve Nash sees it, Jeremy Lin's incredible path from the bench to breakout star is a good, old-fashioned sports story: an underdog athlete playing well, sparking excitement and leading a struggling franchise to victories. It's not, as some have surmised, a story of Nash's old coach, the Knicks' Mike D'Antoni, finally finding a Nash-esque point guard to plug into an offensive system that is making this mania happen."

Jeremy Lin drops 38 to help the Knicks take down Kobe Bryant, Lakers - Chris Mannix - SI.com

"For all of their star power, for all of their wealth, the man who may save the Knicks' season earns the NBA minimum, sleeps on his brother's couch and less than a month ago wore a uniform with "Erie" across the chest."

Can Knicks guard Jeremy Lin add to his legend in New York? - Phil Taylor - SI.com

"I missed on Jeremy Lin, too. And like the front offices and coaching staffs of the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets, I'm kicking myself for not realizing what was right under my nose."

Cut by Warriors, Rockets led Jeremy Lin to success with Knicks - Sam Amick - SI.com

"Linsanity," as his growing legion of fans from all over the world are calling it, had been sparked by Lin's unexpectedly exciting play. The driving and dishing of an NBA castoff has led to three straight wins for a Knicks team badly in need of a positive vibe and good point guard play."

Knicks 107, Wizards 93: New York Wins Third Straight Behind Jeremy Lin

Jeremy Lin, where you have been all season?

The second-year point guard sensation notched the first double-double of his career Wednesday night as the New York Knicks (11-15) won their third straight in a 107-93 win against the Washington Wizards (5-21) at the Verizon Center. Lin finished with 23 points and 10 assists in his second game since being inserted into the starting lineup. Tyson Chandler led New York with 25 points (two shy of his career-high) and 11 rebounds, two nights after being limited to just 22 minutes of playing time and 10 points due to foul trouble.

The Knicks started slow in being outscored 23-17 in the first quarter, but scored 35 points in the second to lead 52-46 at halftime. With the Knicks once again without Carmelo Anthony (groin) and Amar'e Stoudemire (death in the family), Lin was efficient (9-for-14 shooting from the field, 5-for-6 from the free throw line) and played a critical role in distributing the ball (New York had just eight turnovers compared to Washington's 12).

Steve Novak also continued his string of breakout performances, scoring 19 points for the second consecutive night on 6-for-10 shooting from the field and 5-for-9 from 3-point range.

For Washington, John Wall almost hit 30 points for the second straight night. Wall finished with 29 points and six assists, while Trevor Booker finished with 17 points. No other Wizard scored more than nine points, due in large part to foul trouble limiting JaVale McGee (eight points, nine rebounds and three blocks) and Nick Young (seven points and four rebounds).

Friday night, the Knicks will go for four straight wins against the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center. The Lakers travel to Boston Thursday night, which could bode well for the Knicks as the latter end of back-to-back games has been a persistent issue for teams in this shortened season.

Knicks 99, Jazz 88: The Jeremy Lin Show Continues As Knicks Win Second Straight

He couldn’t do it again, could he? Actually, Jeremy Lin one-upped himself.

A new Madison Square Garden star has been born over the past two Knicks games, and it’s a diminutive second-year point guard from Harvard. After catapulting the Knicks to a crucial win on Saturday with 25 points, Jeremy Lin led a severely shorthanded New York team to a 99-88 win over the Utah Jazz (13-10) on Monday, notching a career high 28 points and 8 assists. The Knicks have been clamoring for competent point guard play, and at the moment they’ve found their new starter in the least likely of places.

The Knicks (10-15) came into the game shorthanded, and six minutes in they found themselves decimated. Amare Stoudemire was at home in Florida after the tragic passing this morning of his older brother Hazell, and Carmelo Anthony strained his groin halfway through the first quarter. Lin, who earned his first career start, suddenly found himself having to run the offense without a safety net.

With their main offensive weapons missing, the Knicks’ defense had to be good and it certainly was in the first half. The Knicks had nine steals before halftime, which helped launch them to a 13-point advantage at the half. A main component of that was the Knicks’ bench, led by Steve Novak who hit five 3-pointers in the game for a season-high 19 points. The third quarter saw the Jazz get back into the game, setting up a fourth quarter that the Knicks easily could have given away. With Tyson Chandler in foul trouble and their thin bench being severely stretched out. But that’s when Lin again took over the game as he did on Saturday. A clearly confident Lin hit a huge three-pointer with the shot clock expiring to put the Knicks up 95-96, essentially icing the game.

Aside from Lin and Novak, the Knicks also got some under-the-radar good performances from others. Jared Jeffries finished with 13 points, 8 rebounds and also took five charges. In his post-game press conference, Mike D’Antoni staunchly defended Jeffries, saying that fans who boo him "need to re-examine a few things in their life". Jeffries surely is one of the Knicks’ best glue guys, and he has played a huge role in their past two wins.

Despite being in foul trouble, it’s pretty incredible when you realize the effect Chandler had on the game. In just 22 minutes, he led the Knicks with a +18 rating, finishing with 10 points, 7 rebounds, 3 blocks and 2 steals.

The Knicks now have a legitimate chance at winning three straight, as they visit the Washington Wizards on Wednesday. Will the Linsanity continue?

Knicks 99, Nets 92: Jeremy Lin Sparks Big New York Win

When the New York Knicks and New Jersey Nets got things started at Madison Square Garden, no one could have guessed who the hero would have been. Instead of Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoundemire or Deron Williams, it was little-used guard Jeremy Lin that owned the World's Most Famous Arena as the Knicks downed the Nets, 99-92.

The Harvard graduate came into action on Friday with a career average of 2.8 points per game, but he led all scorers Saturday night with a career-high 25, including some nifty baskets in the paint that brought the Garden faithful to their feet for most of the night. With just over two minutes remaining and the Knicks up six, Lin split defenders Deron Williams and Kris Humphris, drove for a three point play and shared a bow with Anthony.

The Nets were led by Williams' 21 points and 11 assists, though shockingly he couldn't keep up with Lin down the stretch. Kris Humphries added 20 points and 12 rebounds while Jordan Farmar poured in 19 off the bench. A Nets reserve had a career-high as well Saturday, with rookie Jordan Williams scoring 10 points in 26 minutes.

Lin hit on 10-of-19 shots from the field, handed out seven assists and grabbed five rebounds. Arguably more important than any of those numbers was his ball security, as the point guard had just one turnover in 35 minutes of action.

After being released by the Golden State Warriors in December and spending some time with the Houston Rockets, Lin has now turned in the game of his life and if the chanting of "Jer-e-my" by the Garden crowd is any indication, will be a fan favorite going forward.

Keeping things simple after his performance, Lin broke down how the Knicks came out on top.

"We play hard, we play together and we're just thankful to get out of here with a win."

New York has now taken five games in a row from New Jersey.

The Knicks will try to keep up their momentum when they welcome the Utah Jazz on Monday night. The Nets will return home to take on the Chicago Bulls Monday.
