Despite the absence of Carmelo Anthony, the New York Knicks overcame the Detroit Pistons by a score of 87-77.
Although the Knicks turned the ball over 20 times, they dominated on the glass and played dominant defense in the fourth quarter. In the final frame, the Pistons were only able to muster 12 points, which was by far their lowest total for any quarter on the night.
With this win, the Knicks finish off their second straight season sweep of the Pistons. While that can't sit well with those in Detroit, they can take solace in the fact that their best player, Greg Monroe, missed the game due to injury.
