Knicks Defeat Pelicans In Fourth Straight Win
The New York Knicks have their season best winning streak at four games with a 116 106 win over the New Orleans Pelicans.
Tom Thibodeau's young team has become on of the best defensive teams in the league, and its clearly helping them close out games.
New York found a way to shut down Zion Williamson in the 4th quarter, holding New Orleans to just 17 points.
This Knick team is starting to look like the 1990's team with low scoring games and stifling defense.
Julius Randle has been playing at an all star level all season, and has hit his stride, Randle had 32 points last night, and was too much for the NBA's number one draft pick in 2019 Zion Williamson.
Alec Burks dominated the fourth quarter scoring behind the arc, sinking short jump shots and finding his teammates.
The Knicks have moved into the sixth position in the Eastern Conference just a half game behind fifth place Boston.
I keep saying this may really happen, the Knicks in the playoffs, and we're not talking rings or dynasty here, but this is a very special unit, and they are playing their best basketball of the season.
The remainder of the schedule is one of the most difficult for any team in the league, but so far the New York Knicks are "Winning and Grinning"
