Knicks Sweep Spurs

The Knicks and Spurs were close throughout the first half. Int he third quarter, the Knicks broke things open to sweep the Spurs this season. At one point, J.R. Smith caught an alley oop that went waist high. Smith grabbed the pass and threw in a memorable reverse dunk.

Carmelo Anthony scored 23 points on 20 shots. Smith had a great game with 20 after a slow start. Tyson Chandler had 14 rebounds. Pablo Prigioni had 9 assists. Raymond Felton has been out with a fractured finger. Mike Woodson has gone with a big starting lineup with Felton out and it hasn't worked out that well because Anthony is better at power forward starting Prigioni is the answer. Amar'e Stoudemire had 10 points and Steve Novak scored 15 on 5 of 7 threes.

The Knicks 100-87 win was impressive. It ended the Spurs' 7 game winning streak, although it was their fourth game in five nights. The Knicks advance to 22-10.
