Definetly becoming a habit now. Woodsanity continued with 5 Knicks in double figures. Stoudemire led all scorers with a very strong all around game-22 points on 8 of 13 shooting and 12 rebounds. Lin was next with 18 points and 10 assists, with again only 2 turnovers. This has been a clear difference so far with Woodson-in the early going at least Lin has cut down the turnovers.
The was Anthony with 17 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists though on only 5 of 15 shooting. Chandler also had 17 points on 8 of 10 shooting.
“Everybody feels great. Having fun, enjoying the game of basketball, and that’s what it’s about,” Stoudemire said. “When you enjoy doing your job, then it makes it much easier to play and that’s what’s happening right now.”
“Guys are playing at a very high, confident level right now,” Carmelo Anthony said. “We just want to bottle that up and move on and keep it going.”
"They’re a tenacious, different team,” Toronto coach Dwane Casey said.“It’s amazing, their tenacity, the way they attack. If you don’t meet it, they take you out.”
"It’s fun. It’s fun to watch,” Woodson said. “Make no mistake about it, it was our defense that got us the spurt that we needed, and you know that’s what good teams are supposed to do. We’ve just got to bottle it up, man, and just continue to do it.”
The Knicks came into this game averaging about 112 and giving up 89 in their first 3 games under Woodson so this game score was in line. Don't know if they can last, sure is fun while it lasts.
