The New York Knicks were on a six game losing streak when they went into Charlotte.  They leave with the monkey off their back after beating the Bobcats 111-78.

Tyson Chandler came up big last night for the New York Knicks.  With the other stars of the team struggling, Chandler stepped up with 20 points and 17 rebounds.  Amare Stoudemire and Landry Fields would each add 18 points, while Carmelo Anthony had just one point, and was 0-7 from the field.

The Knicks are currently sitting in third place in the conference at 7-10, a game behind the second place Boston Celtics and 5 games behind Philadelphia, who continues to roll.  Next up for the Knicks are the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night from Cleveland.
