Knicks End Skid With Tough Road Win

By Bill Pritchard

The Knicks got a much needed win in New Orleans last night, beating the Hornets 101-95.

David Lee scored a team high 24 points and was one rebound shy of recording his ninth straight double-double. He is one of four Knicks’ players to score in double figures.

The loss ends a three game skid for the Knicks, whose last win came against Boston on January 4th. After losing the first three games of the four game road trip the Knicks came out firing, and recorded an impressive team total 30 assists. The teams traded off the lead for much of the 1st half, but the Knicks gained control on a Chris Duhon 3-pointer at 9:21 to go in the 2nd quarter and never looked back.

The Hornets got close towards the end and cut the Knick lead to three, but late 3-point shots by Quentin Richardson and Al Harrington kept the win intact. The Knicks showed promise by limiting New Orleans to 38 percent shooting from the field, and they caused the Hornets to commit eleven turnovers.

With the road trip over, the Knicks come back to New York for a home-and-home against the Washington Wizards, before hosting Philadelphia, Chicago, Phoenix and Memphis.

The team earned a hard fought victory over a good Hornets team and need to keep focused and playing hard. They have a home stand against some of the leagues’ weaker teams, so they should use the win as motivation. If the Knicks use the confidence they got from beating good teams like the Celtics and Hornets, then they should be able to string a few wins together and get out of last place.
