As my good friend Andrew Smith said at the very least this game shows what the Knicks are capable of. They need more effort and energy going to the rim from J.R. Smith. They need Marcus Camby and Rasheed Wallace to provide depth up front. They need better production from Prigioni, but all in all, what a start to the 2012-13 season.
This win can catapult them early and get several games above .500 and set the tone for a successful campaign. But they have to carry the momentum and beat a very good 76ers team tomorrow afternoon.
