Knicks overcome double-digit deficit in fourth quarter to beat Hornets, 118-113 - Nov 8, 2017

Kristaps
Porzingis
The late-game magic and the corresponding euphoria officially have returned, at long last, to the Garden. The suddenly surging Knicks overcame a double-digit deficit in the fourth quarter for the second straight game and knocked off Charlotte as their latest comeback victim with a spirited 118-113 victory at MSG, their sixth in seven games following an 0-3 start to the season. This time much of the late surge came without budding superstar Kristaps Porzingis (7'3''-C/F-95), who largely was quiet after pumping in 19 points in the first half and sat for a long stretch before returning to net seven big ones for the Knicks in the closing minutes of the fourth. 'I wanted to get back in, of course, and give that offensive and defensive push for the team at the end,' said Porzingis, who finished with 28, falling just shy of the 30-point mark for only the third time during the team's 6-4 start. 'It felt like I was able to help there, but guys that were in at that moment were doing a great job coming back into the game, playing hard defense, giving energy to everybody in the crowd, (until) I was ready to come in.' Porzingis, named Monday as the Eastern Conference player of the week, still set the franchise record for the most points through 10 games of a season with an even 300, breaking the previous mark of 298 by Bernard King, who was in attendance, in 1984-85. But Doug McDermott (6'8''-F-92, college: Creighton) posted a season-best 20 points off the bench, including a key converted four-point play early in the fourth, with Tim Hardaway Jr. (6'6''-G-92, college: Michigan) Jr. adding 19 for the Knicks.

The Latvian big man then sank a driving scoop with the shot clock expiring for a three-point lead with 11 seconds remaining, prompting another eruption from the Garden faithful, and Courtney Lee (6'5''-G/F-85, college: W.Kentucky) iced it with two late free throws. Dej vu, all over again. Just like Sunday. 'Very similar, very similar situation,' Porzingis said. 'Again it was just the good energy. We locked in defensively, we were putting a lot of pressure on them and it went our way again. But we cannot always do this … I think we should try to do a better job from the beginning. 'But you can tell these last couple of games we're playing our hearts out out there on the floor and that's what I love about this team. We have a great atmosphere inside of the team and that shows on the court. We stay together throughout the game, we don't ever give up and then we were able to win those close games.'

James Harden, Rockets soar past Wolves 119-100 with 50-point 3rd - 20 hours ago
James Harden (6'5''-SG-89, college: Arizona St.) gave Houston quite the jump-start with 22 of the team's 50 points in the third quarter, as the Rockets cruised past the Minnesota Timberwolves 119-100 on Monday night to take a 3-1 lead in their first-round playoff series. Chris Paul (6'0''-PG-85, college: Wake Forest) scored 15 of his 25 points in the near-record third for the Rockets, who turned a 50-49 halftime edge into a 31-point advantage after the torrid 12-minute span.
