About midway through the first quarter, the New York Knicks trailed the Sacramento Kings 18-6. They were 1-of-13 from the floor and appeared absolutely lifeless. The Madison Square Garden crowd began to boo.
Then the tables completely turned, as the Knicks went on a 46-7 run (no, that is not a typo) and proceeded to mercilessly thump the Kings by a score of 120-81. The scary thing is, it wasn't even that close, as New York led by 50 at one point in the fourth quarter.
J.R. Smith led the Knicks with 25 points as the bench combined for 82. Yes, the Knicks bench totaled 82 points in this one.
You probably think Carmelo Anthony went off, right? Well, he didn't. The MVP candidate scored only nine points, ending his streak of 20-point games.
Tyson Chandler also grabbed 20 rebounds for the second straight night.
For Sacramento, DeMarcus Cousins led the way with 25 points.
