Knicks Kill the Game after D'Antoni Kicks the Bucket

By Jake heston

After losing six straight games and falling out of the playoff picture, Knicks/Lin fans were calling for an immediate change.

The organization was faced with a predicament: fire D'Antoni or trade Melo. But the organization didn't have to make the call after D'Antoni caught the Knicks by surprise as he announced his retirement hours before their must win game against Portland.

The Knicks came out last night full of energy, with just one thing on their mind, win.

They didn't just win, though, they embarrassed the Portland Trailblazers at home, whipping them 121-79 and not stopping until the clocked stopped. Five Knicks went for 10+ points and every single Knick scored except Mike Bibby, who's booty anyway.

Was D'Antoni's resignation what the Knicks needed? Or is this just another Knick fluke? We'll have to wait and see where the Knicks and interim head coach Mike Woodson lead the team going forward. Next up they have the Pacers in back-to-back games, who have established themselves as an elite team this year in the East.
