...the Knicks Win Two At Home and Totally Redeem Themselves
After twin come-from-ahead road losses last week (at Charlotte and Chicago, respectively) slowed the Knickerbockers headlong charge into Eastern Conference relevancy, sapping my confidence in coach D'Antoni, the team came home to the Garden and regrouped over the weekend. Well, not at first. Because, at first, they fell behind by 20 to the Clippers. But then, they did regroup and rally for a late win on a David Lee tip on Friday night. Then on Sunday, Danilo Gallinari hit (and missed) clutch free throws before icing the game with a blocked shot in the waning moments against Larry Brown and the Bobcats.
After opening the 2009-2010 campaign with a franchise-worst 1-9 record, the Knicks have hit 10 wins before 20 losses. Now, hop on the back of this moped, Isiah got it for a second rounder in 2008, and let's ride to the Eighth Seed.
