Final Score: Knicks 94, Timberwolves 91

Not sure how, but the Knicks won.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Well, I'm not sure exactly how they pulled that off, but the Knicks just came back and beat the Timberwolves. New York sunk themselves with miserable perimeter defense, a poor effort on the boards, and unusually sloppy, isolation-heavy offense. Somehow, J.R. Smith's excellence, a fourth quarter full of Tyson Chandler rim protection and Carmelo Anthony drives (19 points in the final frame), and some wild refereeing (in both directions) ended with the Knicks surviving. I don't even think they played that much better during the comeback, but come back they did.

20-7. 4-2 on the home stand. Recap later.
