Riding a five-game winning streak, and being the lone undefeated team in the NBA, heading into last night's contest versus the San Antonio Spurs the odds were stacked against the New York Knicks.
The last time New York won in San Antonio was back in March, 2003 and the team was facing a Spurs team that was coming off a huge win against the Lakers and owners of a record with only one loss.
But this wasn't a Knicks team of past seasons. They built their undefeated record off solid defense (currently holding teams to 89.8 points per game, 2nd in the NBA), terrific offense (averaging 103.5 points per game, 2nd in the NBA) and beat their first five opponents by 10 points or more.
So when New York came storming back late in the fourth quarter versus the Spurs to escape San Antonio with a 104-100 win and beat one of the best teams in the NBA, New York head coach Mike Woodson realized his team is the real deal as his team improved to 6-0.
"It shows me this team is for real," said Woodson. "We beat a great team tonight. A well-coached team. It's the first time I've ever won in San Antonio, so I feel pretty good about that. It's tough to win here."
