J.R. Smith throws it off the backboard, Amar’e Stoudemire finishes (VIDEO)

This is a far cry from Chris Paul to DeAndre Jordan, but it’s as close as the Knicks are likely to get.

J.R. Smith leads the break late in the second quarter, and tosses it off the backboard for a trailing Amar’e Stoudemire. In the old days, Amar’e would have hammered this one home with nearly as much force as the Clippers’ big man, but this time, he simply was able to lay it in.

Don’t look now, but the Knicks have won three straight and the teams that surround them in the standings all seem to be in a free fall of sorts. New York is just three and a half games out of the final playoff spot in the East, held by Atlanta at the moment who is currently on a six-game losing streak.

    I can’t believe they still have a chance for the playoffs seeing how poorly they played before this little run. They could get the 8th seed which would be nice. Though they may be eliminated even if they make the playoffs better than giving Denver that good of a pick. That play in my opinion seemed risky and he should of layed it in himself. Hoepfully this Amare is here to stay.

    Highlight of another disappointing season.

      Highlight? J.R. was trying to make a basket with that “shot”…

      He’s just so bad, it missed badly and he got lucky Stat was there to save him…
