Mike Goodson is undefeated as the head coach of the New York Knicks. Soon after Mike D’Antoni resigned, Goodson made it clear that things would change immediately for this Knick team. And they did. The Knicks ended their six game losing streak with a convincing 121-79 victory over the reeling Portland Trail Blazers. The Knicks set the tone early, battling for rebounds, scrapping for loose balls, and hustling back on defense.

Carmelo came out hot, scoring ten first quarter points. Amare had a very solid game scoring 17 points and grabbing eight boards. Lin wasn’t great, scoring only eight points and dishing six assists (he had six turnovers). But all in all, the Knicks played with emotion and came away with an easy win. The 19-24 Knicks are currently ninth in the Eastern Conference. The Milwaukee Bucks have the same record, but have the heads-up tie breaker. The Knicks will take on the Indiana Pacers on Friday night at Madison Square Garden.
