New York Knicks have found new life since assistant coach Mike Woodson took over for Mike D’Antoni. The club has won four straight games and was looked for its first five game winning streak since Lin-sanity set in before the all-star break.

NYC in Philly to take on the 76ers - New York is up a deuce in the fourth quarter - there’s Spike Lee giving it to Will Smith and the Philadelphia faithful. And here’s Jeremy Lin showing some creative dribbling skills. He gets into the lane and gives New York a 6-point cushion - 18 points for Lin in the game.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Knicks won 82-79.

The Sixers used some great ball movement on this play, but Stoudamire ended it with a huge rejection. Thou-shalt-not-finish-at-the-rim: the Knicks stay up by 6. But Philly still stayed close - Andre Iguodala cuts the margin to three after the triple. He had 13 on the night.

Then it would be the 76ers getting a stop on defense, and they’re off and running - Iguodala slices-in, but blows the lay-up. Philadelphia needed that one badly against the Knicks defense. A late-game trey brought the 76ers within three, but time ran out. The Knicks hold on for an 82-79 win.
