Knicks 94, Magic 86
On the road and coming off a loss, the Knicks got exactly what they needed. The Magic couldn't buy a bucket and couldn't handle Eddy Curry (27 points), and the Knicks beat them easily with efficient shooting and strong defense. I didn't do any game notes because I wasn't at home, but one of the more important facets of the game was that Jerome James, not David Lee, started in the place of Channing Frye. James played only 15 minutes but blocked 2 shots. Frye, meanwhile, played one of his best games of the season, dropping 18 and 7, including a halftime buzzer-beating three-pointer. Darko Milicic led Orlando with 19 and 6.
Anyway, it was a much needed victory for the Knicks. They caught the Magic at the right time, and this just might spark a run to get New York back in contention. Let us hope. Back tomorrow. Peace.
