Knicks 100, Blazers 86

Posted: January 12, 2011 in Knicks

The Knicks continued their drive toward the playoffs tonight with an impressive road win at Portland. The Knicks controlled this one most of the way, getting a big game from Ronny Turiaf of all people, who scored 19 points and pulled down 10 rebounds. Turiaf is no star, but he should get more minutes because the Knicks are pretty small and get outrebounded every night. Amar’e Stoudemire had an off night, but still managed 23 points and eight boards. Raymond Felton is having a monster year and he had another nice game tonight with 17 points and 14 assists.
The Knicks are 2-1 on their West Coast road trip and try to make it a winning a trip tomorrow night in Utah. Beating the Jazz will be a tough task, especially on the second night of a back-to-back, but I’d take a 2-2 trip at this point. Then back home for a pair of teams they should beat in the Kings and Suns. Knicks are 22-15 and look like they’ve got the horses to post their first winning season in 10 years. Baby steps, people.
