Knicks Snap Six Game Skid With 121-79 Win Over Portland

Wednesday was a roller coaster ride for the New York Knicks.  They were riding a six game losing streak, and lost their coach that morning.  Finally they would put something positive together at night.

On Wednesday afternoon the news broke that Mike D’Antoni was stepping down as head coach of the New York Knicks.  At a press conference later in the day, Knicks personnel said that they tried to reach an agreement with D’Antoni to keep him around, but nothing could be agreed upon.  Last night, for the first time since  2008 the Knicks took the floor without Mike D’Antoni, and played like D’Antoni would have wanted them too.

The Knicks beat up the Portland Trail Blazers 121-79, snapping their six game skid and allowing everyone to take a breath.  New York got big help from their bench.  JR Smith had 23 points to lead the team, and Steve Novak put up 20 points.  Novak was 6-10 from behind the arc.  Carmelo Anthony had just 16 points, and Jeremy Lin had 6 points and just 6 assists.

Mike Woodson will be the interim head coach for the rest of the season, but the Knicks said they will be looking for a new head coach for the 2012/2013 season.  Next up for the Knicks are the Indiana Pacers on Friday.
