The Knicks ended the Raptors’ four-game winning streak to win their ninth consecutive game. New York was 25-27 when the streak began but since then, no team in the NBA has been hotter.
Toronto briefly led in the third quarter but the Knicks got big contributions from their bench as Derrick Rose and Taj Gibson helped New York regain their lead. New York played well in the fourth quarter and won 120-103.
Julius Randle had another big game, finishing with 31 points and 10 rebounds, as he shot 5-7 on 3-pointers. He has had at least 30 points in six of his last seven games.
The Knicks will look to extend their win streak on Monday night against the Phoenix Suns, who have the second best record in the NBA.
