“We had to be on our toes here because we didn’t want to get beat by 50 points again. The way Dallas has been playing, if we didn’t bring our best effort that was going to happen again. That was motivation for us to come in and play our best.” — David Lee
“Revenge is sweet sometimes. That’s a really good team over there, but we just caught them at the right time. They were ripe for the picking. When you’ve had that much success and you know the Knicks are coming in and you feel you can score 150 points on them in your sleep — that team didn’t show up today. I guess we caught them by surprise.” – Al Harrington
“Obviously they didn’t play great tonight. But I’ve been in the West before and every game is crucial for them. I don’t know how much they overlooked us. But they just thought maybe it would be easy for them. But we played at a high level.” — Mike D’Antoni
GAME OBSERVATIONS AND NOTES:
Perhaps one of our Fanatics will kindly give us their observations of this game. Unfortunately, as I mentioned in the comments, we were among the many in almost-South New Jersey who were without power during this game. Unfortunately, I need to wait for “Knicks In 60″ to proivde some personal observations to the stats. Can somebody tell us what happened and what are Toney Douglas and Bill Walker doing to make the Knicks so uber-competitve. I am very disappointed that I missed this game.
