KNICKS BELITTLE BLAZERS
Wed, 12 Jan 2011 10:25 AM EST

The New York Knicks traveled to Oregon to take on the Portland Trail Blazers yesterday, and delivered fans a well-rounded game. While it is usually the Knicks’ offense that runs the show, this time it was the defense that stepped up to lead the way to victory. New York limited Portland to 34.5% shooting, and did a good job of opening up the lane to make opportunities for the offense. With the Blazers mentally fatigued and downhearted from last week’s loss to the Miami Heat, which also ended their eight-game winning streak, the team didn’t have much a chance against the alert and determined Knicks. After regulation time, they brought it all to a close at secure 100-86. Basketball scores.

The defense set the tone and the offense followed. Amar’e Stoudemire had his first double-double in his last six games with 23 points, 10 rebounds and six blocks. It was also his 22nd straight game in which he has made at least 20 points. Player of the game Raymond Felton also finished with a double-double on Tuesday by scoring 17 points with 14 assists. Those 14 assists coupled with zero turnovers tied a franchise record for the Knicks. Ronny Turiaf started in place of the injured Danilo Gallinari, giving a season-high 19 points and keeping Portland threats Joel Przybilla and Marcus Camby out of the way. Wilson Chandler added a further 17. Overall it was the physical nature of the game really got these players going, especially in a second half filled with fouls and arguments. Still, New York came through in all areas to improve to 22-15. Basketball odds.

There were no easy baskets in this game for the Blazers. While that is partly because the Knicks brought such a tight D, it also had to do with the fact that they just wouldn’t make shots. Portland kept up well in the first half, but then fell behind with third after giving up a brief lead. The physicality they brought was not enough in the end. According to coach Nate McMillan, “We were just a step slow in everything we did.” With the loss, the Trail Blazers dropped to 20-19, and their second consecutive thrashing.
