Knicks 91, Heat 86

Posted: February 28, 2011 in Knicks

After a dumbfounding loss to the Cavaliers Friday night, the Knicks rebounded in a big way tonight with an impressive victory over the Miami Heat.
And the Knicks won with defense, a rarity in the Mike D’Antoni era. Down the stretch, the Knicks played like they wanted it more, hitting huge shots and coming up with big stops.
Chauncey Billups, who was almost an afterthought in the big Carmelo deal, continues to show what a tremendous floor general can do for a team. He’s a leader, and he nailed a huge three to give the Knicks the lead with a minute left.
Amare Stoudemire cemented the win with a huge rejection of LeBron James in the closing seconds, a great play during crunch time.
The Knicks really showed me something tonight, as it looked like they would get blown out early. The Heat raced to a 15-point lead in the second quarter before Billups nailed a three to start a nice Knicks comeback just before halftime. Bill Walker’s three capped a 16-0 run to give the Knicks a 52-51 lead at the break. From there, the game went back and forth until the exciting final minute. A fun game to watch, a win the Knicks hopefully can build from.

    Chauncey will always be a great player. I suppose if I can’t have him back on the Pistons I guess he can be a knick.
