After a lot of unconvincing play against poor opponents, the Knicks finally had their first decent opponent in a while and didn't exactly make a statement. New York's perimeter defense against Chris Paul, Eric Bledsoe, and Jamal Crawford proved as flimsy as ever and aside from a huge offensive performance by Carmelo Anthony (42 points), not much got going on the other end. The Knicks had stretches of competence, but didn't really stick with approaches that worked for them.
Not fun. Recap later.
