Hola FenaCatorce,
Knicks were down by 11 with 7 minutes left, then went on a 22-11 run to pull it out. Raymond Felton was lights out as was J.R. Smith. Kidd contributed a pair of clutch three-pointers down the stretch. The Spurs focused on stopping Carmelo Anthony from scoring and it worked--he ended up with only 9 points. They double and at times triple-teamed him. Late in the 1st half, a frustrated Melo had a litte pity party while the Knicks were swinging the ball around to the open man (i.e. away from him) and he responded by forcing a number of shots to no effect. From there, he wised up and contributed significantly the rest of the way by playing team ball....hitting the open man, playing defense and rebounding.

Spurs didn't not shoot well (and had two turnovers) down the stretch, while the Knickerbockers turned up the "D" and lit it up both from downtown and driving/crashing the boards. Of course the NYK will come back down to earth, but for now, I'll chirp if you don't mind (wink).....I mean one can take just so much non-stop chatter from the Late Nite West Coast-based ESPN Sportscenter about the Lakers' Phil/D'antoni/losing/panic soap opera...
