Knicks Get Big Win

The last time the New York Knicks and Denver Nuggets got together, they did their best [Crips and Bloods] impersonation, turning Madison Square Garden [into a war zone](http://www.iht.com/articles/2006/12/17/sports/NBA.php). Last night, the two teams impersonated basketball players instead, and the Knicks [came out on top, 119-112](http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/recap?gameId=271106018).


New York had four players—Zach Randolph, Eddy Curry, Jamal Crawford and Stephon Marbury—who scored more than 20 points in the victory. Crawford had a team-high 25 points and eight assists, Marbury had 21 points and nine assists and Randolph had his best game as a Knick, amassing 22 points and 17 rebounds on 9-of-15 shooting.   “Coming in, you knew it was a big game,” Randolph said. “Last year and the incident, guys had a lot amped up and wanted to win.”


The Knicks rallied from a 15-point, third-quarter deficit and a 10-point, fourth-quarter deficit to steal the win against a very good Denver team. Curry, who finished with 24 points and eight rebounds, had two late buckets to tie the game at 102-102 and take a 105-102 lead, and then swatted away a Marcus Camby shot to preserve the lead. “We love the feeling that we have right now, and we want to keep duplicating that,” Curry said. “That feeling” would be winning, and it’s been so long since it happened to the Knicks, most of their players don’t even know what to call it.
