Knicks make it four straight with 110-84 dumping of Toronto


PhilBoxing.com


JERSEY CITY -- With Chris Copeland leading the way, the New York Knicks had some little fun Saturday night and serenaded Jason Kidd, who turned 40 years old. And after 48 minutes of play, the giddy Knicks gift-wrapped a nice 110-84 victory for their teammate at the expense of the visiting Toronto Raptors at the Madison Square Garden.

It was the fourth consecutive win for the 42-26 Knicks, who overtook the 43-27 Indiana Pacers for the No.2 spot in the Eastern Conference after the Pacers fell to the Chicago Bulls, 87-84, at the sold-out United Center in Chicago.


Carmelo Anthony, who was assessed with a Flagrant-1 foul for tangling with ex-Knick Landry Fields in the third quarter, paced New York with 28 points on 9-for-19 shooting. But the continued resurgence of Kenyon Martin -- 18 points and eight rebounds in 27 minutes -- provided just as much for New York, which also got 25 points off the bench from the streak-shooting J.R. Smith.

"He's so active around the rim offensively, in terms of putbacks he's always been a good pick-and-roll player. That is a plus for us the way we play. He is a major plus for our ballclub," Knicks head coach Charles Woodsoon told NBA.com.

After a close 21-17 opening quarter, the game began to get away from the Raptors when the Knicks dropped a 38-30 run in the second quarter. The Knicks, thanks to their 51.9 percent shooting, grabbed a 15-point advantage entering the fourth quarter.

DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors with 17 points while Alan Anderson and John Lucas III added 14 points apiece. Star guard Rudy Gay did not travel with Toronto due to a jammed back and the Raptors struggled greatly on the field, making just 34 of 76 field goals and four of 23 three-point shots.

At 26-44, the Raptors are no longer in playoffs contention. (RA)
