The New York Knicks pulled off quite an impressive road win against a Utah Jazz team that was previously 24-8 at home.

It wasn't pretty, but the Knicks, led by J.R. Smith's 20 points on 5-of-13 shooting, beat the Jazz 91-83.

The shocking part for the Jazz was that they put up just 22 of their 83 points in the paint, even with Tyson Chandler and Amar'e Stoudemire out for the Knicks.

Turnovers were the name of the game for the Knicks, as the veteran-led team 17 turnovers and held the Jazz to just 38.2 percent shooting from the floor.

What the Jazz may not have known is that the L.A. Lakers got blown out at Phoenix, which means the Jazz had a chance to jump back into the playoff picture out West.

Instead, the Knicks seized their opportunity to stay competitive in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, even without Carmelo Anthony on the floor.

It was an impressive win for the Knicks and an awful, awful loss for the Jazz.
