The New York Knicks had an impressive win versus the Orlando Magic and did so with a great defensive effort. The Knicks beat the Magic, 96-80, and showed a national television audience that they can take down an Eastern Conference contender.
The Knicks bounced back strong after losing to the Pacers in Indiana and hope to continue their winning ways versus the Bulls on Sunday. Carmelo Anthony put in 19 points for the Knicks and four other players scored over ten points.
If the Knicks want to be taken seriously in the playoffs, they will have to come out with the same effort against Chicago.
