Knicks 102, Hawks 90

Posted: February 16, 2011 in Knicks

For the first time in 10 years, the Knicks head into the All-Star break with a winning record.
Amar’e Stoudemire scored 23 points to help the Knicks beat the Atlanta Hawks for the first time in three tries this season, a convincing 102-90 win at Madison Square Garden.
Danilo Gallinari, who may have played in his final game as a Knick, contributed 17 points and nine rebounds. Raymond Felton added 13 points and 11 assists for New York.
Gallinari and possibly Felton could be involved in a blockbuster trade for Denver superstar Carmelo Anthony and veteran point guard Chauncey Billups.
At 28-26, the Knicks are just one win away from matching last year’s season total. The team has clearly improved, but likely needs another superstar like Anthony to team up with Amar’e Stoudemire and lead the Knicks to greatness down the road. I’ve grown attached to Gallinari, but would certainly part with him in a trade for Melo. Would prefer the Knicks hold on to guys like Landry Fields and Timofey Mozgov. If Denver takes a trade of Felton, Gallo, Eddy Curry’s expiring contract and a first round pick/or Anthony Randolph, that would be great. Can’t completely wipe away the team’s depth though. Will be an interesting week, that’s for sure.
