Notes From the Knicks' Victory Over the Wizards
As the Knicks have continued to cool off from what was the team's hottest start in nearly a decade, many have wondered whether they'll be able ignite that same fire again, and furthermore, whether or not they'll be able to hang with the Heat as the elder squad propels to the postseason.
With these questions continuing to swirl, Sunday's matchup at the Garden vs. Miami may prove to be one of the season's most pivotal for the Knicks as they attempt to prove something. Defeating the Heat at this stage in New York's season would prove to be quite the statement game, especially considering the team's recent ups and downs.
But before the weekend officially began, the Knicks sought out some revenge on a Wizards team that pathetically and frustratingly pummeled them while celebrating the recent return of John Wall.
Lucky for New York, they didn't allow such a defeat to occur again. Starting the weekend off on the right note, the Knicks earned a 96-88 victory in Washington. For more on the matchup, let's check out what a few of KnicksJournal.com's pals had to say:
