Final Score: Knicks 87, Pistons 77

Ohhh, the Knicks.

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

The Knicks went out of their way to make it difficult for themselves, but I guess they came through when it counted most. After blowing a big lead and actually going down double-digits in the third quarter against the severely depleted and highly terrible Pistons, the Knicks cut off a couple huge runs and and won 87-77. Despite committing seven of the Knicks' 20 awful turnovers, Raymond Felton had himself a nice offensive game, finishing with 26 points on 15 shots and four three-pointers. Amar'e Stoudemire added 22 in 31 minutes and J.R. Smith redeemed a terrible shooting night with a flurry of big threes in the fourth quarter.

Short recap comin' up soon.
