GAME 82: CELTICS 112, KNICKS 102
Recap: Amar'e Stoudemire returned to the lineup, but just about every other key player for the Knicks and Celtics sat out in a meaningless regular season finale. Gearing up to face one another in the first round of the playoffs, it was a battle of the 12th men, with the Celtics coming out on to behind Sasha Pavlovic and Avery Bradley.
Key stat: The Celtics reserves tore up the Knicks reserves offensively, shooting 56.5 percent from the field.

GAME 81: BULLS 103, KNICKS 90
Recap: Playing without power forward Amar'e Stoudemire, the Knicks' bandaid bunch managed to keep with the East's best team throughout the first half, heading into the third quarter up 55-52. Chicago turned up the defense in the second half, though, and managed to pull away for the win. The outcome held no effect on the Knicks' playoff seeding.

GAME 79: KNICKS 116, NETS 93
Recap: With Amar'e Stoudemire on the bench, New York avoided a letdown, manhandling the Nets. After a high octane first quarter, the Knicks' defense stepped up, holding the Nets to 20, 21 and 21 points in the second, third and fourth quarters. The large margin enabled Mike D'Antoni to use his bench, with all 12 of the Knicks that dressed getting at least nine minutes of playing time.
Key stat: The Knicks clinched their first non-losing season since 2000-01.

GAME 77: KNICKS 131, RAPTORS 118
Recap: Both New York and Toronto opted to put on a shooting clinic at the Garden, with the Knicks winning a game of "First team to 130 wins." Jumping out to a big early lead, New York stumbled slightly in the second half, but never let the Raptors get within true striking distance, holding on for their fourth consecutive win. Couple with a 76ers loss, New York moved within 1/2 game of Philly for sixth in the East.
Key stat: The Raptors finished with just 11 assists on 45 field goals in the loss.

GAME 76: KNICKS 123, CAVS 107
Recap: Carmelo Anthony was off to another quick start scoring 19 of his 25 points in the first half helping the Knicks build a 22-point lead at one point. The frisky Cavs cut the lead down to 10 before the half but the Knicks rolled to a victory over the and secured a spot in the postseason for the first time sine 2004.

GAME 75: KNICKS 120, NETS 116
Recap: Heading into the second half down 10 after giving up 68 points to the woeful Nets in the first half, the Knicks looked primed for another letdown game. However, Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups took over for New York, combining for 72 points in a come-from-behind win.
Key stat: Three Knicks scored more than seven points: Anthony (39), Billups (33) and Amar'e Stoudemire (23).

GAME 74: KNICKS 113, MAGIC 106 (OT)
Recap: Hours after calling a home game against the Magic "almost a must-win," Carmelo Anthony delivered his best performance as a Knick. He scored 32 points in the second half and overtime combined and totaled 39 for the game. The Knicks played with good intensity throughout and moved closer to securing a playoff spot.
Key stat: Shelden Williams played 16 minutes that showed little in the box score, but his strong effort against Howard earned him an ovation from the Garden crowd when he fouled out with 1:05 left in regulation.

GAME 73: BOBCATS 114, KNICKS 106
Recap: Two pivotal games against Eastern Conference teams on the outside looking in. Two losses. Six losses in a row, altogether. Things went from bad to really, really, really bad for the Knicks, as New York fell again. The loss closed Charlotte's gap to 4.5 games behind the Knicks.
Key stat: Eight Bobcats scored in double figures, led by Boris Diaw's 20.

GAME 72: BUCKS 102, KNICKS 96
Recap: Something's awful rotten in the state of New York. The Knicks got off to a sluggish start once again, and were never able to fully rebound, dropping their fifth straight game overall. Milwaukee, currently on the outside of the playoff picture looking in, improved its chances of sneaking into the postseason, moving within two games of 8th place in the East . . . and 5 1/2 games of the Knicks.
Key stat: New York finished the game with just 13 assists.

GAME 71: MAGIC 111, KNICKS 99
Recap: Again, the Knicks held a lead late in the game. And again, on their home court, they couldn't hold on. Amar'e Stoudemire had a bad game, finishing with 13 points on just 6-20 shooting - including a 2-16 start - and New York fell to 7-10 since acquiring Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups.
Key stat: The Knicks fell below .500 for the first time since they were 7-8.

GAME 70: CELTICS 96, KNICKS 86
Recap: The Knicks played 3 1/2 solid quarters, but couldn't do anything right after Chauncey Billups converted a four-point play to give them an 82-73 lead with 7:26 to play. Boston went on a 23-4 run to close the game, a situation made worse by the fact that Carmelo Anthony sustained a cut next to his left eye that forced him to bench with 2 minutes left.
Key stat: The Knicks did not score a point in the final 3:28 of the game.

GAME 69: BUCKS 100, KNICKS 95
Recap: The Knicks scored just nine points in the first quarter and could never dig themselves all the way out of the hole. Milwaukee's Carlos Delfino scored a career-high 30 points and the Knicks never took the lead or tied the game.
Key stat: The Knicks missed 10 of their first 12 shots and trailed 32-9 at the end of the first quarter.

GAME 68: PISTONS 99, KNICKS 95
Recap: In a game of runs, it was the Pistons catching fire last. Down headed into the fourth, Detroit shut down New York's scoring attack, orchestrating a comeback to upset the Knicks at the Palace. The Pistons managed to pull off the win without Richard Hamilton. The Knicks, on the other hand, might as well have played the game without Carmelo Anthony, who finished with six points on 2-12 shooting.
Key stat: Ronny Turiaf finished with 0 rebounds in 11 minutess off the bench.

GAME 67: KNICKS 120, GRIZZLIES 99
Recap: Fans at the Garden relentlessly chanted "De-fense" throughout the opening minutes of the Knicks first game since a drubbing in Indiana. Their response? Holding Memphis to under 100 points. Overshadowing the defensive effort, though, was uncanny shooting from three, with New York hitting a team-record 20 treys, including nine from Toney Douglas..
Key stat: Amar'e Stoudemire was held to 16 points, his lowest output since the Knicks acquired Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups.

GAME 66: PACERS 119, KNICKS 117
Recap: Two nights after a frustrating loss to the Pacers, New York again found itself in a deep, early hole. After clawing all the way back to a 117-all tie with less than ten seconds left, though, Danny Granger sunk a jumpshot to again send the Knicks home on the losing end.
Key stat: In his 31 minutes of action, Chauncey Billups registered a -20.

GAME 65: PACERS 106, KNICKS 93
Recap: What's going on in New York? After getting embarrassed by the Mavs, a shorthanded Pacers team shut down Melo and company at the Garden. With Indiana star Danny Granger sidelined, Tyler Hansbrough took over, scoring 29 points in 40 minutes.
Key stat: Chauncey Billups and Landry Fields combined for 14 points on 5-17 shooting.

GAME 64: MAVERICKS 127, KNICKS 109
Recap: After jumping out to a very early lead, the Knicks completely collapsed, getting trounced by the Mavericks in Dallas. New York was dominated all night in the paint and on the glass, and other then a brief run to cut the lead to 12 in the fourth quarter, were never really in striking distance.
Key stat: The Mavericks snagged 17 offensive rebounds.

GAME 63: KNICKS 110, GRIZZLIES 108
Recap: The Knicks started off the game red hot, shooting nearly 60 percent for most of the three quarters. Memphis came back late, though, and managed to tie the game late in the fourth. New York turned to Carmelo Anthony, who beat the buzzer with a jumper to hand the Knicks a big road win.
Key stat: The Knicks were outscored in the paint, 52-28.

GAME 62: KNICKS 131, JAZZ 109
Recap: Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire both broke the 30-point barrier in the same game for the first time as the Knicks steamrolled a very flat Jazz team at MSG. They built a 14-point lead after the first quarter thanks to a season-high 40 points and never looked back. With Anthony and Stoudemire on the bench in the fourth quarter, even little used subs Renaldo Balkman and Andy Rautins got on the scoresheet.
Key stat: The Knicks improved to 5-1 in their last six games against teams with .500 or better records.

GAME 61: KNICKS 92, HAWKS 79

GAME 60: CAVALIERS 119, KNICKS 115
Recap: Is it Friday nights? Is it the 12-win Cavs? Or is it just the Knicks? New York couldn't end either of their ugly losing streaks - now a seven-game Friday night losing streak and a three-game losing streak this season to the worst team in the league - in a four-point loss to Cleveland at the Garden.
Key stat: Seven Cavs - no, none of them named LeBron James - scored in double digits.

GAME 59: KNICKS 107, HORNETS 88
Recap: Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks had plenty to smile at in a blow out win over New Orleans. One night after a collapse in Orlando, Toney Douglas came up big filling in for the injured Chauncey Billups, and both Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire added over 20 points in an easy win. The Knicks led comfortably enough that Roger Mason, who had seen action in only nine games entering the night, saw some time. (He finished with five points.)
Key stat: Chris Paul, recipient of a warm reception from the Garden faithful, finished with just four points.
Knicks leading scorer: Toney Douglas and Amar'e Stoudemire, 24

GAME 58: MAGIC 116, KNICKS 110
Recap: Chauncey Billups had his biggest night so far for the Knicks with 30 points, but left the game after colliding with Dwight Howard. The collision created time and space for Jameer Nelson to hit a long jumper with 2:27 left to give Orlando a 112-106 lead and the eventual win.
Key stat: The Knicks haven't swept a Florida trip since December of the 2002-03 season.

GAME 57: KNICKS 91, HEAT 86
Recap: Remember when Chauncey Billups was considered a throw-in to the Carmelo Anthony deal? We don't either. Mr. Big Shot came up with five consecutive points and a steal late in the game, turning the tide in the Knicks favor as New York took their talents to South Beach and won.
Key stat: Bill Walker played well coming off the bench, scoring 10 points and grabbing seven rebounds.

GAME 56: CAVALIERS 115, KNICKS 109
Recap: The Cavaliers have 11 wins this season. Two of those? Against the Knicks. Once again, facing the doormat of the NBA, New York struggled, dropping their first game with Carmelo Anthony. Anthony played well scoring 27 points, and Chauncey Billups had a huge second half for New York, but it wasn't enough to secure the victory.
Key stat: In just eight minutes of action Renaldo Balkman registered a plus/minus of +16.

GAME 55: KNICKS 114, BUCKS 108
Recap: Carmelo Anthony made his debut as a member of the Knicks and didn't disappoint. Melo finished with 27 points and grabbed 10 boards, helping New York hold off a late Milwaukee rally. Chauncey Billups also turned in a solid effort, finishing with 21 points, six rebounds and eight assists.
Key stat: Amar'e Stoudemire took 13 shots in Anthony's debut; Melo took 25.

GAME 54: KNICKS 102, HAWKS 90
Recap: The last time the teams met, fireworks between Amar'e Stoudemire and Atlanta's Al Horford led to a scuffle, which led to Shawne Williams throwing a punch that earned him a one-game suspension. This time, Horford made little noise (aside from a hard foul that irked Raymond Felton, above) and Stoudemire scored 23 in his return from a toe injury as the Knicks entered the All-Star break on a winning streak.
Key stat: The Knicks haven't been above .500 this late in the season since 2000-01, when they finished 48-34.

GAME 53: KNICKS 105, NETS 95
Recap: Amar'e Stoudemire was a last-minute scratch due to a sprained toe, but Wilson Chandler was able to fill in admirably in pioneering the Knicks back above .500. The Nets kept the game within striking distance most of the way, but couldn't manage to increase their winning streak to three games.
Key stat: This was the first game Stoudemire missed since coming to the Knicks.

GAME 52: LAKERS 113, KNICKS 96
Recap: The Lakers followed up the Clippers win two days earlier by completing the L.A. sweep at The Garden, easily putting away the Knicks. The loss dropped New York to .500 for the first time since they were 9-9. Kobe Bryant did most of the damage for the Lake Show, scoring 19 of his 33 points in the first quarter.

GAME 51: CLIPPERS 116, KNICKS 108
Recap: The Knicks fell victim to the trap game, falling to the Clippers two days before a date with Kobe and the Lakers. New York played inconsistent throughout, and a poor fourth quarter effort led to a "We want Melo!" chant from the Garden faithful.
Key stat: Randy Foye, who came into the night averaging seven points per game, scored 17 points in the fourth quarter alone.

GAME 50: KNICKS 117, 76ERS 103
Recap: In one of the first must-win games of the season, the Knicks managed to avoid a home-and-home sweep against the 76ers, winning easy. Had New York lost and the two teams ended up tied at the end of the season. Philadelphia would have owned the tiebreaker. Landry Fields had a career night for New York, and Amar'e Stoudemire topped 40 points for the second time this season.
Key stat: Fields had a career-high 25 points and hit a career-high five three-pointers.

GAME 49: 76ERS 100, KNICKS 98
Recap: Knicks fans everywhere went hoarse pleading Shawne Williams to shoot a corner three-pointer with under five seconds left. Had it gone in, Williams, usually deadly accurate from that spot, would have lifted the Knicks to a one-point win. Instead, the small forward brought the ball game and drove for a game-tying layup . . . only to leave it short, opening the door for a Philly win in the first game of a home-and-home set.
Key stat: The Knicks were out-scored 27-16 by Philadelphia in the 4th.

GAME 48: MAVERICKS 113, KNICKS 97
Recap: In a game full of runs, the Mavericks, led by Dirk Nowitzki, simply managed to out-streak the Knicks. Locked in a tight game at the half, Dallas came out in the third quarter on a 26-6 run to put the game away.

GAME 47: KNICKS 124, PISTONS 106
Recap: No Chandler? No Williams? Heck, the Knicks might not have even needed Amar'e Stoudemire the way Timofey Mozgov brought the Garden down against the Pistons. The rookie had a breakout game, scoring 23 points and grabbing 14 rebounds, leading the way for a bounce-back win.
Key stat: Mozgov played 40 minutes for the Knicks. Prior to the game, he had played 38 total minutes in December and January combined.

GAME 46: HAWKS 111, KNICKS 102
Recap: An on-court fracas between Marvin Williams and Shawne Williams overshadowed a lax effort by the Knicks in a loss to Atlanta. New York was outscored 60-43 in the first half and could never come back. Late in the fourth, both Williams' got into a scuffle, with punches thrown. Each were suspended by the league.

GAME 45: KNICKS 93, HEAT 88
Recap: In front of a packed Garden, the Knicks welcomed two-thirds of the Big 3 - LBJ and D-Wade. While Wade had a huge game, finishing with 34 points, the Knicks defense kept LeBron in check. In the end, New York's three-pointers started falling, and the Knicks pulled off the win over Miami.

GAME 44: KNICKS 115, WIZARDS 106
Recap: To no one's surprise, the Knicks finally got a win when Amar'e Stoudemire and Raymond Felton both played well in the same game. Stoudemire scored 30 and Felton added 17 and 15 assists as New York ended a six-game losing streak. A 15-4 run in the fourth quarter helped them pull away as the Wizards dropped to 13-31 (0-21 on the road).
Key stat: The Knicks are second in the league in scoring average (106.2), but scored over 100 for first time in four games.

GAME 43: THUNDER 101, KNICKS 98
Recap: For 47:59, the Knicks played well enough to win. Leading much of the way, stingy defense and fundamental passing had New York poised to break their five-game skid. However, Kevin Durant drilled a fadeaway three as the buzzer sounded - his first career walk-off game-winner - to send the Knicks home from Oklahoma City losers.
Key stat:After scoring 60 points in the first half, the Knicks managed just 38 in the last two quarters.

GAME 42: SPURS 101, KNICKS 92
Recap: For the second time this season, the Knicks played the league's best team close. This time, though, it wasn't close enough. A poor shooting night overshadowed solid defense, as the Knicks dropped game No. 5 in a row.
Key stat:Amar'e Stoudemire failed to score 20 points, ending a streak of 26-straight games where STAT hit the 20-point threshold.

Recap: Time to hit the panic button yet? Again squaring off a team that a true contender should take care of, the Knicks came up short, getting dominated on the glass by Chuck Hayes and in the field by Kevin Martin. It was the Knicks fourth loss in a row.

Recap: Amar'e dropped 41, but there was little other good news in New York on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The team defense was porous throughout, letting Steve Nash and Vince Carter look 10 years younger. In the end? The Suns exacted revenged for their embarrassing early-season defeat, and the Knicks lost their third-straight game.
Key stat: The Knicks and Suns each hit 11 three-pointers; however, the Suns only took 21. The Knicks attempted 31.

Recap: Playing with a handful of dinged up players, including Raymond Felton and Toney Douglas, the Knicks couldn't finish off a comeback win against the Jazz. Utah dominated much of the first half before Shawne Williams and the Knicks caught fire from three, but it wasn't enough.
Key stat: The Jazz shot 58.4 percent against a lax Knicks defense.

GAME 37: KNICKS 100, BLAZERS 86
Recap: Mike D'Antoni decided to switch his gameplan up, starting bruising big man Ronny Turiaf at center as part of a bigger lineup. It paid off. Turiaf finished with 19 points and 10 boards, and played stringent defense on Portland star LaMarcus Aldridge all game, helping New York pull off a come-from-behind win.

Recap: The Knicks apparently didn't hear that San Antonio, who entered the game with a league-best 29-4 record, is supposed to be one of the NBA's top defensive teams. They torched the Spurs so badly that coach Gregg Popovich pulled his starters with 3:25 left. Wilson Chandler led the way with a season-high 31 points.

Recap: The Knicks took their lumps, suffering a number of bumps and bruises and one key injury -- Danilo Gallinari sprained his knee -- but prevailed thanks to strong efforts from Ronny Turiaf and Toney Douglas off the bench. Turiaf had six of the Knicks' 12 blocks, while Douglas had his best all-around game of the season, with 12 points and seven assists.

GAME 32: MAGIC 112, KNICKS 103
Recap: A late-game surge nearly carried the Knicks to an improbable come-from-behind win, but an early 18-point hole was too much to overcome in a loss to the Magic. Led by Dwight Howard, Orlando dominated New York in the paint all game as Amar'e Stoudemire battled foul trouble.

Recap: To be the best, you've got to beat the best. For the second time this season, New York failed to do that against the East's favorites. The Knicks kept it interesting until late this time, cutting Miami's lead to three at one point, but the Big 3, keyed by Dwyane Wade's 40 points, were too much.

Recap: The game featured two of the league's highest-scoring teams and highest-scoring players (Amar'e Stoudemire and the Thunder's Kevin Durant). Shootout? Nope, blowout. The Knicks rebounded from a poor effort in Cleveland by playing solid defense, sharing the ball and limiting turnovers. They opened up a double-digit lead late in the first half and never let Oklahoma City back in the game.
Key stat: The Knicks blocked nine shots and are averaging 6.66 blocks per game, second best in the NBA.

Recap: For one night, at least, it was back to the same old Knicks. Coming off of back-to-back losses to contenders, New York laid an egg against one of the league's worst teams, falling flat in an overtime loss. The performance was so poor that Mike D'Antoni questioned the team's character following the game.
Key stat: After scoring at least 20 points in back to back games, the streaky Danilo Gallinari went cold, shooting 3-14 from the floor and finishing with just 7.

Recap: At the half, the improbable looked very possible. Just a few months after losing LeBron to the Heat, the Knicks were tied with the King, 57 apiece. However, James, Bosh and Wade picked up their games in the second half, and the Knicks went cold, opening the door for New York's second-straight loss.

Recap: MVP chants - no, not the sarcastic kind - thundered around MSG as Amar'e Stoudemire and the Knicks extended their win streak to eight games. Wilson Chandler had a big night for New York, scoring 27 points, including a key three-pointer late to clinch the win.
Key stat: Stoudemire broke Willie Naulis' franchise record for consecutive games scoring 30 points. The Knicks big man had a slow start, but a big fourth quarter helped him break the record.

Recap: Beat a contender? Check. The Knicks overcame another hurdle, taking down one of the league's premiere teams to win their eighth game in the last nine. While New York had looked impressive in beating the likes of the Bobcats, Pistons and Nets, none of those teams had a Chris Paul. And on the backs of Amar'e Stoudemire and Raymond Felton, the Knicks got the job done.

Recap: Despite an insistence on making things difficult on themselves - the Knicks let a 14-point lead at the beginning of the fourth quarter shrink to one with 18 seconds left - New York won their fourth straight. Six Knicks scored in double-digits in the win, including Raymond Felton, who was one assist away from a double-double.
Key stat: Showing their improved interior defense, Ronny Turiaf and crew continued the team's season-long block party. New York had nine blocks, increasing their league-leading average to 7.6 per game.

Griffin and Gallinari each had career nights, with the Clippers rookie scoring 44 points and ripping 15 boards, while Gallo matched his career-best, netting 31.

Recap: With David Lee sidelined for the Warriors, the Knicks exacted revenge for their earlier loss against Golden State. A fourth quarter rally by the Warriors tightened what was otherwise a dominant performance by the Knicks, but Raymond Felton's career night (35 points, 11 assists) was enough to deliver New York its second consecutive win.

Recap: It started out ugly for New York, with the Knicks getting outscored by the hapless Kings 27-14 in the first quarter. However, a second quarter run helped them turn the game around, as New York managed to stave off Sacramento in the fourth to hold on for the seven-point win. Six players scored in double figures for the Knicks, and Ronny Turiaf, in his first start of the season, managed a plus-minus ratio of +13.
Key stat: The Knicks corralled their three-point shooting, taking just 15 shots from beyond the arc. As a team, they shot 40 percent from downtown, and 52.1 percent overall.

Recap: Remember the Knicks' 3-2 start? We don't either. In a game New York didn't have much business being close in much of the way, Denver sent New York to their sixth-straight loss. The culprit? Again, three-point shooting. The Knicks shot 29 percent from beyond the arc, including a 2-10 night from the ice-cold Danilo Gallinari. Carmelo Anthony scored 26 for Denver in the win.
Key stat: Wilson Chandler and Landry Fields, two bright spots on an otherwise gloomy season, each had big games. Fields scored 21 points and added an eye-popping 17 boards, while Chandler tallied 23 points and five blocks.

GAME 9: TIMBERWOLVES 112, KNICKS 103
Recap: The Knicks' transformation from the SSOL offense to the CIOE (Chuck It Or Else) offense continued Friday night. The beneficiary? Kevin Love, who became the first player since Moses Malone to finish with 30 points and 30 rebounds in the same game. It was another meltdown for New York; they led by 21 early in the third quarter before going cold from downtown.
Key stat: Leading 83-67 with 6:44 left, the Knicks proceeded to miss 14 of their next 15 shots. Minnesota responded with a 23-4 run.

GAME 8: WARRIORS 122, KNICKS 117
Recap: David Lee clinched the game at the free throw line in his return to MSG, as the Knicks couldn't overcome a terrible third quarter in their third-straight loss. Down by as much as 19 at one point, New York rallied to tie the game late in the fourth, but couldn't seal the deal with brick-after-brick from downtown. Lee fittingly finished with a double-double, netting 28 points and grabbing 10 rebounds.
Key stat: As bad as the Knicks were from downtown (22.6 percent), they were as good from the free throw line, going 38-43. However, two of the misses came in crunch time, when Amar'e Stoudemire failed to convert on back-to-back.

Recap: Any momentum gained from back-to-back wins over the Bulls and Wizards was officially lost, as the Knicks dropped their second-straight, getting trounced by the Bucks. After missing their first nine three-pointers, New York couldn't bounce back, trailing by 22 after the first quarter. Only three players managed to score in double-digits, en route to the team shooting just 39 percent from the field.

GAME 2: CELTICS 105, KNICKS 101
Recap: To the naked eye, it looked like the Knicks were overmatched up and down the floor in Boston. The Celtics out-rebounded (54-38), out-assisted (33-24) and out-shot (48%-44%) New York. However, led by Amar'e Stoudemire, the Knicks kept the game close all night, before ultimately falling by four.
Key stat: Rajon Rondo dished a career-high 24 - yes, 24 - dimes, part of his first triple-double of the young season.
Knicks leading scorer: Amar'e Stoudemire, 27
2010-11 record: 1-1

GAME 1: KNICKS 98, RAPTORS 93
Recap: No LeBron, no Wade, no Bosh, no 'Melo, but still an opening-night victory for the Knicks. In his debut, Amar'e Stoudemire registered a double-double, and Wilson Chandler came off the bench to lead the team in scoring.
Key stat: One of the Knicks' Achilles' heels from a year ago - overzealous three-point shooting - almost came back to haunt them again. Collectively, New York missed 17 of 24 shots from three.
Knicks leading scorer: Wilson Chandler, 22
2010-11 record: 1-0
2009-10 record: 0-1
