Who called the timeout?- NY Knicks beat New Orleans 113-96

The last time New York last won 4 or more games in a row was 2006. From AP-

The New York Knicks were making shot after shot, ready to go down the stretch with the New Orleans Hornets.NYK-NOH

Turned out, they didn’t have to. The Hornets pretty much took the last five minutes off.

Al Harrington scored 28 points and the Knicks scored the game’s final 18 points to beat the Hornets 113-96 on Friday night.

“Our defense was horrible,” Paul said. “We’ve had a few games where our defense was good, but not tonight, and it was obvious we couldn’t buy a shot.”

Before the Knicks closing streak, the two teams were only separated by one shot. I’m guessing New Orleans got demoralized after the Knicks ran off 8-10 points and gave up. Pro athletes are human, when life or a sports game isn’t breaking our way, we lose interest.

With the win, the Knicks improved to 8-15. This recent winning streak has probably made Coach Mike D’Antoni’s job a little more secure. But for how long?
