Knicks’ Winning Streak Snapped In Toronto
DeMar DeRozen’s dropped 30 points on the Knicks Friday night, ending New York’s five-game winning streak 96-79 at Air Canada Centre.
New York, who lost for the first time under interim coach Mike Woodson, were awful from 3-point range but continued to hoist up long balls.
Steve Novak had 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting from beyond the arc while the rest of the Knicks were 0-of-19 from the 3-point line. Amar’e Stoudemire led the team with 17 points.
Carmelo Anthony had an off shooting night, 6-of-15, for a dozen points and nine boards.
The Knicks (23-25) host the Pistons on Saturday night, leading the Bucks for the East’s final playoff spot by just 1/2 game.
