Knicks Sweep Wolves

The Knicks took the lead early against the Timberwolves in a physical game in Minnesota. Carmelo Anthony was fantastic, scoring 36 points and 9 rebounds. Luke Ridnour caught fire in the third quarter and the Wolves raced out to a double digit lead.

But Minnesota didn't have the maturity to hold on. The Knicks stormed back in the fourth and Minnesota never had a chance even though the score was close. The Knicks held all the momentum. The Knicks had three men score in double figures off the bench- Amar'e Stoudemire, J.R. Smith, and Steve Novak- which is indicative of their depth.

The Knicks have been winning of late even though New York hasn't been shooting the three ball well. The Knicks won 100-94 to move to 32-16.
