Winning games on the road is hard. Winning games on the road when your best player gets hurt in the final few minutes is even harder. Great teams, legitimate championship contenders, know how to do that, though. On Wednesday night, against the Charlotte Bobcats (yes, the Charlotte Bobcats), the Knicks proved why they are such a formidable group this year.
Thanks to a clutch J.R. Smith game-winner, when it was all said and done, New York emerged with a 100-98 victory.
Carmelo Anthony led the way for his squad with 23 points on eight-of-22 shooting. Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton pitched in 18 points and 17 points, respectively. Four Knicks players ultimately finished in double figures.
Meanwhile, Kemba Walker led all scorers in this one with 25 points (and 11 assists). Gerald Henderson and Ben Gordon chipped in 18 points and 17 points, respectively.
