Gallo and Wil come up big in meaningless win

By Donny Shabtai
Not surprising to any real Knicks fan, last night the Knickerbockers defeated the Atlanta Hawks 99-98. Anyone who watches the Knicks knows that can be competitive for a stretch. With the losses piling up, most recently to the WNBA team that plays in Jersey, the Knicks came out ready to prove they're not as bad as their record says they are. Gallo was hot from the start, dunking on the first play of the game. After what seemed like forever (21 straight games without hitting 20 points) the Rooster finally busted out of his hen for an enormous 27 points, on 9-14 shooting overall, going 4-5 from downtown and 5-6 from the charity stripe, two spots which should be layups for Danilo, though he's been struggling from there lately.
All season long Knicks commentators Mike Breen and Clyde (as well as everyone else in the five boroughs) that Gallo needs to be more aggressive and assert himself on the offensive end. All too often Gallo puts himself in a corner and waits for the ball. Monday against the Hawks, the Rooster was coming to the ball, putting himself in position to get off his gorgeous shot.

Toney "Money" Douglas has been seeing more time on the court and has been making it count. His defensive tenacity has proven to be valuable for the offensive minded Knicks. Although he had a great game, his turnover at the end of fourth quarter could have been disastrous had Wil-the-Thrill not been there to save his butt. Don't know what I'm talking about? Take a look.
