Knicks Vs. Grizzlies Final Score: Anthony Buzzer Beater Leads Knicks To 110-108 Victory

The Knicks began the fourth quarter going scoreless over the first four minutes and allowing the Memphis Grizzlies to cut a lead that ballooned to 17 points mid-way through the third quarter all the way down to six points. Promptly once threatened, New York responded with a five point spurt that pushed the lead back up to eleven. However, Memphis answered right back cutting the lead to just three points with just over one minute remaining in the game thanks to a couple of careless Knicks turnovers and some spirited play from Zach Randolph.

A wild sequence ensued as first a pass went between Mike Conley's legs out-of-bounds giving New York back possession. Then Toney Douglas missed an off-balance jumper which was rebounded by the Grizzlies before being stolen by Carmelo Anthony. After running the shot clock down, Anthony missed a jumper and the Grizzlies had the ball with 21.7 remaining in the game. Mike Conley drove into the middle before dishing to Zach Randolph who laid the ball in while being fouled by Anthony. His free throw tied the game at 108-108. Not to be undone, the Knicks pushed the ball ahead and isolated Anthony on the wing who calmly drained a step back jumper with just 0.5 remaining on the clock. Jared Jeffries batted away a Memphis desperation lob to seal the victory.

Anthony finished with a game high 31 points including the game winner. Amare Stoudemire chipped in 26 points while Toney Douglas added 18. Tony Allen led the Grizzlies with 22 points while Zach Randolph and Mike Conley each had 20. Darrell Arthur came off the bench for Memphis to score 21 points while grabbing seven rebounds.

The Knicks won the game despite only attempting four free throws in the game. Conversely, Memphis was 33-35 from the line.

Knicks Vs. Grizzlies Score: Amare Stoudemire, Knicks Lead Grizzlies 96-82 After Three

The Knicks used some more solid shooting and a zone defense to outscore the Grizzlies by six in the third period and extend their lead to 96-82. It isn't just Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire hurting the Grizzlies now as Toney Douglas has 18 points and seven assists, Landry Fields has 14 points, and Roger Mason has 11 points off the bench. 

Tony Allen and Mike Conley are doing all they can to keep Memphis in the game with 22 and 16 points respectively. While Memphis is shooting over 50% from the field for the game, they haven't been able to match New York's 60% shooting. The Knicks are also 12-22 from three-point range while Memphis has attempted just five shots from beyond the arc. 

Strange stat from this game, the Knicks lead despite taking just two free throw attempts through three quarters of play. The Grizzlies on the other hand are 23-25 from the charity stripe. You have to wonder if that kind of disparity can catch up with New York if they go cold from the field.

Knicks Vs. Grizzlies Score: Carmelo Anthony Scores 20, New York Leads 61-53 At Half

Carmelo Anthony scored 20 points and Amare Stoudemire added 16 while leading the Knicks to a 61-53 halftime lead over the Memphis Grizzlies. The Knicks are shooting 60% from the field and 61% from the three-point range. The only reason the game is this close is due to Memphis proficiency at forcing turnovers and turning them into points. The Knicks committed 10 turnovers in the first half which led to 18 points for the Grizzlies.

The real story from the first half is Stoudemire and Anthony combining to go 16-25 from the floor for 36 points, and seven assists. As a team, New York has recorded 17 assists in the first half which is a testament to how free-flowing their offense is right now. They are sharing the ball and knocking down opportunities from all over the floor.

Memphis refuses to go away and is playing an aggressive style of defense jumping into passing lanes. The problem was when they weren't forcing a turnover they were instead giving up baskets to the Knicks. The before mentioned points of turnovers combined with going a perfect 14-14 from the free throw line in the first half has the Grizzlies at least within striking distance. Tony Allen leads Memphis with 12 points while Marc Gasol is also in double figures with 10. Mike Conley has nine points and four steals thus far in the game.

So far it is Stoudemire winning the battle between himself and Zach Randolph. The Grizzlies power forward has but six points and three turnovers in the first half.

Knicks Vs. Grizzlies Score: Carmelo Anthony Leads Knicks To Early 30-27 Lead

Carmelo Anthony scored 12 points and handed out four assists in the opening period helping stake the New York Knicks to an early 30-27 lead over the Memphis Grizzlies. The Knicks shot a red-hot 62% in the opening period while connecting on their first four three-point attempts.

Toney Douglas added eight points and Amare Stoudemire had six for the Knicks. Marc Gasol led the way for the Grizzlies with six points in the opening quarter. 

The game wouldn't be as close as it is without New York turning the ball over five times leading to 10 points for the Grizzlies. Memphis is one of the NBA's best teams at forcing turnovers and that has been key in keeping themselves within striking distance of the Knicks in this one. 

If the Grizzlies want to stay in this game they are going to have to find a way to make the Knicks miss some shots. With Rudy Gay sidelined Memphis simply won't have the firepower to get in a shootout with New York.

Knicks At Grizzlies: Amare Stoudemire, Zach Randolph Battle To Keep Winning Streaks Alive

Two of the hottest teams in the NBA square off tonight when the Knicks clash with the Grizzlies in Memphis. Both teams come into tonight's match-up having won seven of their last ten games and two in a row. Tip off is scheduled for 8 p.m. EST and can be seen nationally on NBATV. 

The Knicks most recently destroyed the Utah Jazz by a score of 131-109 in a game that saw Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony combine for 65 points. New York shot a blistering 56 percent from the floor in that game. New York is expected to be without the services of guard Chauncey Billups, who has missed four straight games with an injured quadriceps suffered when he collided with Orlando's Dwight Howard. Toney Douglas has been starting at the point for the Knicks and is 3-1 in the games that Billups has been out. New York is 5-3 since the Anthony trade. 

The Grizzlies are coming off of an impressive 107-101 victory over Oklahoma City on Monday. Mike Conley scored 20 points while dishing out nine assists for Memphis in the win. The most impressive part of the Grizzlies strong play of late is that they have done it without the services of Rudy Gay, who is sidelined with a shoulder injury. Zach Randolph is having another phenomenal season, averaging 20 points and 12.9 rebounds per game. A big part in determining the outcome of tonight's game will be who wins the battle between Stoudemire and Zach Randolph. 

Tonight's game is the first of two regular season meeting between the clubs, as they will play again next Thursday at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks are currently 33-29 on the season and just three games behind the Atlanta Hawks for the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference. Memphis checks in at 36-29 and are just a half game behind New Orleans for the seventh spot in the West. The Grizzlies are 22-9 at home this season while the Knicks are 15-16 on the road.
