Knicks beat Cavs for third win in a rowPosted by Inside Hoops
The Knicks are showing life lately. Here’s the New York Post reporting on the team taking their third win in a row:
The Knicks have found a starting lineup, found a way not to panic in the fourth quarter and have found their way back into the playoff race.
With Carmelo Anthony thriving in the new Big 3 alignment, he reversed his trend of stinking out Cleveland, shaking off a bad first quarter to post 26 points as the Knicks topped the Cavaliers, 107-97 at Quicken Loans Arena for their third straight win.
Amar’e Stoudemire scored 17 points with 12 rebounds and three blocks as the new starting power forward and Tyson Chandler notched 15 points and 11 rebounds. The expensive trio combined for six blocks.
Yeah, it’s working as the Knicks had a chance to move within 3 ½ games of the eighth seed with collapsing Atlanta playing a late game at the Clippers.
