Knicks 125, Thunder 120

The Knicks played a great game today, extending their winning streak to 12 games with a road win in Oklahoma City against the Thunder.

The key factor in this game was the lack of turnovers for the Knicks. There was a small stretch of repeated turnovers, but otherwise the team team took great care of the ball. 

The ball movement around the perimeter was incredible. As a team they were giving up good shots for great shots (as usual) and coming out with a bunch of wide open threes. Jason Kidd, Raymond Felton, and Pablo Prigioni were especially good at this today.

Felton was driving to the basket with ease and able to pass for an inside-outside play. 

Carmelo Anthony was aggressive, like he should always be, always trying to get to the hoop and not shying a way from contact. He came away with 9 offensive rebounds, 4 of those coming off of his own misses. He had a disappointing game with only 37 points (such a bum, am I right?). Hopefully he can work on that heading into the playoffs. Melo was getting points from all spots on the floor. If he can be this aggressive during the playoffs, the Knicks will give the Heat a reason to worry.
