The Knicks lack of execution in the last minutes of the fourth quarter offensively were awful. With Carmelo Anthony on the bench for another game, the Knicks failed to score in the final 1:49 as J.R. Smith missed two jump shots in the last 32.9 seconds. OKC won, 95-94, at the Garden.
“It was a great fight,” Stoudemire said after the Knicks fell to 37-22. “We didn’t make a shot (in
the fourth). We played great defensively. We got stops we needed but we
didn’t make a shot.”
The Knicks only scored 13 points in the fourth quarter. Stoudemire made one shot in the fourth while Smith attempted nine.
