Knicks Get Big Win

Written by Jason Singer on . Posted in Posts, Sports

The last time the New York Knicks and Denver Nuggets got together, they did their best Crips and Bloods impersonation, turning Madison Square Garden into a war zone. Last night, the two teams impersonated basketball players instead, and the Knicks came out on top, 119-112. New York had four players—Zach Randolph, Eddy Curry, Jamal Crawford [&hellip
