This is not how the New York Knicks return home to Madison Square Garden was supposed to go. After completing a four-game West Coast road trip the Knicks returned home Friday night and lost to the lowly Sacramento Kings, 93-83.
Beno Udrih finished with a game-high 29 points for Sacramento and DeMarcus Cousins added 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Kings. Carl Landry added 15 points and nine rebounds.
Amare Stoudemire led the Knicks with 25 points and 13 rebounds. Stoudemire has now scored 20 or more points in 24 consecutive games, the most since Patrick Ewing did it in 28 straight contests from January 25-March 14, 1962.
Tony Douglas and Bill Walker added 21 and 11 points, respectively, for New York.
The Knicks (22-17) had only 58 points after three quarters and got booed by the hometown crowd. The Knicks will be back in action Monday at 1 p.m. ET when they host the Phoenix Suns.
