Mon, 07 Mar 2011 04:38 AM EST

After losing Chauncey Billups to injury, there were voices which said the New York Knicks would struggle agains the New Orleans Hornets. However, Toney Douglas stepped up to the plate and replaced Billups with tremendous success. He was so good that he even managed to outshine Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. Basketball scores.

“When you have players like myself and Carmelo who demand so much attention, the game seems to open up for guys like that, so he took advantage of it,” Amare Stoudemire stated about Toney Douglas.

The first quarter was a bit odd. The New York Knicks and the New Orleans Hornets showed they are determined to win this one. At first glance, it looked like the Knicks actually missed Chauncey Billups, but they were still able to outscore the Hornets. The score of the first quarter was 25-27.

“I just think we didn’t have the fight that we’ve had this year. I had to address some things after the game personally with some guys. I’m not going to get to the summer time and have stones that are unturned,” Monty Williams, New Orleans Hornets coach, stated. “I cannot stomach guys that go out there and don’t play with passion and go out there and play afraid. That’s what I saw tonight.” Basketball odds.

The second quarter looked a lot better for the Knicks. They managed to build a commanding lead while the Hornets struggled to break through their opponents’ defense. Stoudemire, Anthony and Douglas were superb and they managed to score 70 points together. The score of the quarter was 17-25 and the overall score was 42-52.

“Nobody fears us right now,” Chris Paul stated. “We’re not playing with a lot of confidence, especially myself. It puts us in a tough situation night in and night out. We’re not playing the way we can.”

The Knicks kept it going in the third quarter and they quickly built on their already imposing lead. They were irresistible in attack and impenetrable in defense. Eventually they managed to set the score at 62-82 and, with a 20 points lead, they were sure to win this one.

“This was a big win for us to come back home against a team like New Orleans and get this win and protect our home court. That’s big for us,” Carmelo Anthony stated. “We just want to get better, offensively, defensively. We’re trying to figure it out. That’s the only thing that we’re doing right now and it’s on the fly, too.” Basketball spreads.

The Knicks kept it together in the fourth quarter, kept most of their lead and won the game, 88-107.
