Knicks Crush Nets To End Losing Streak
The New York Knicks proved on Thursday night that they aren't the worst in New York with a 113-83 drubbing of the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclay Center.
The Knicks have ended their nine-game losing streak and subsequently broke the tie with Brooklyn for the most losses in New York.
Carmelo Anthony had 19 points and 10 boards for the Knicks, while Iman Shumpert had a season high 17. Brook Lopez led the Nets with 24 points and nine rebounds.
After a fairly even first half, the Knicks came out swinging in the third quarter, outscoring the Nets 34-16. They would dominate the half as a whole to take the 30 point victory.
"We finally put a 48-minute game together," Knicks Head Coach Mike Woodson said.
The Knicks, now 4-13, return home on Friday night for a match-up with the Orlando Magic. The Nets fall to 5-14 and are next in action on Saturday at the Milwaukee Bucks.
