Final Score: New York 104, San Antonio 100
San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) - With their first loss staring them in the face, the Knicks did what they have done all season. They made plays, particularly veteran guard Jason Kidd. Kidd drained three fourth-quarter treys and New York used a late offensive blitz to shock San Antonio, 104-100. The onslaught included 27 points, including four three-pointers, in the final seven-plus minutes, statistics made even more impressive considering Carmelo Anthony's off shooting night. The Knicks' top offensive player managed just nine points on 3-of-12 shooting.
