Seven straight! That was a wire-to-wire sludgebath of a game-- the kind of ugliness that you'd think would favor a defensive team like the Pacers. But no! Carmelo Anthony fought his ass off for a RUGGED 33 points and Amar'e Stoudemire shot beautifully in the first half to buoy the Knicks scoring. And while the Knicks didn't exactly defend "well" as a unit, they exerted enough effort to get the Pacers turnin' things over early and to maintain a crucial rebounding edge throughout. I don't know how much of Paul George's horrible 4-17 shooting night can be attributed to the Knicks, but that was good, too. I really don't like that guy.
After a week or two straight of cakewalks, it was kinda nice to see the Knicks scrap out a win against a very good team, however terribly slumping they may be. THE KNICKS ARE THE BEST TEAM IN THE NBA WE'RE GONNA LIVE FOREVERRRRRRRRRRR
