Knicks fans could use a positive, and while their team gave up a 23-point lead to a team missing pretty much every player you can name, the bottom line is the Knicks made some plays and got a win.
They even had a couple highlights, like this one from J.R. Smith who looked like his vintage self of last season — puts on the nice spin move, gets in the lane, draws the defender then makes the nice dish to a cutting Andrea Bargnani for the slam.
The Knicks could stand to see a little more of that.
