Knicks Top Thunder 116-106

The Knicks are 3 games over .500, call the President! Call Isiah Thomas, call James Dolan, call anyone you can reach. Alright I went a little overboard but the Knicks are playing well these days and it's been awhile since I been able to say that.

Last night the Knicks beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 116-106 at MSG.Zach Randolph scored 29 points and had 19 rebounds to help the Knicks to victory last night.

"He's a stat-gatherer," D'Antoni said after Randolph had recorded his seventh straight double-double by halftime. "He's unbelievable. He's got great instincts, great feel, and long arms help."

Jamal Crawford also added 29 points. David Lee scored 18 and Nate Robinson 15. The last time the Knicks were 3 games over .500 was in December of 2004. Like I said, it's been awhile since the Knicks were this "good". I use the term "good" loosely. But it's nice to know the Knicks are tolerable these days and you can actually watch them.

"We're just becoming a better team, period," Robinson said

All this without Stephon Marbury and Eddy Curry who are still riding the bench. The thinking of coach Mike D'Antoni and GM Donnie Walsh is that these two men are the cancer of the team and don't want them anywhere near the court. Sweet. I want to see them go, I don't care how you get rid of them just do it. The big money men have done nothing but create headaches since their arrivals and have worn out their welcome. Good riddance. Get them the hell out of here.

I want to see how the Knicks respond from here. They have the tough Dallas Mavericks in the next couple days, we'll see if they can continue to ride their momentum of good fortune against their old pal Jason Kidd and company. The offense is srating to flow and the defense is getting there. These are exciting times at the Garden, if you're into early season success. But with the Knicks any success is exciting. So take it for what it's worth and enjoy it. I'm sure Curry and Marbury are enjoying it too.
