Isiah lives to fight another day
I don’t know if the Knicks saw this or not but they needed to. In this video Lou Holtz gave a big pep talk to the Knicks after their collapse in Boston. They must have because they were able to bounce back for a big win against the Bucks last night by winning 91-88.
This was a game that the Knicks would normally lose. With the crowd chanting “FIRE ISIAH” and the Knicks usual lackluster effort for most of the game. However they were able to come back to take the lead with Jamal Crawford’s go ahead basket with only 28 seconds to go. Good Job men.
I guess Lebrons gotta do everything
In a game the showcased all role players, the Raptors were able to top the Cavs 91-82. Lebron James and Chris Bosh were out for this one but it the Raptors role players who stepped up big in this one.
Bargnani and Delfino set career highs with 26 and 24 points each, and the Toronto Raptors won their third straight with a 91-82 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
