NEW YORK -- The New York Knicks opened a three-game homestand on Tuesday by rallying for their biggest comeback win of the season. Trailing by as many as 15 points, the Knicks ended a three-game losing streak with a 118-111 victory over the Indiana Pacers.
New York (15-13) will try to keep the momentum going when it entertains the Orlando Magic (13-17) at Madison Square Garden on Thursday. The homestand ends on Christmas Day with a visit from the Boston Celtics.
Orlando also fought back from being double digits down in its 136-130 double-overtime win against the Miami Heat on Tuesday.
The Magic trailed by as many as 13 points before securing their eighth road victory of the season.
"Good win. We fought hard," Orlando guard Evan Fournier said. "We weren't very happy about the first half. We talked about it in the locker room. We came out more aggressive, trying to get into our stuff offensively.
Fournier scored 26 points in the win. It was the 13th time he scored at least 20 points this season. << Read more...
