Knicks stay perfect
Smith each scored 21. BY Frank Isola
ORLANDO The frustration was beginning to show as Carmelo Anthony fought to create space under the basket and tried in vain to score over Maurice Harkless. All Anthony could do was shake his head in disgust.
"It was obvious," Anthony said of not drawing a whistle. "You guys saw it. You don't need me to elaborate on that."
Yes, there were moments on Tuesday when the no name Orlando Magic made things tougher than Anthony and the Knicks would have expected. And no, the referees were not about to help them out. But in the end, the post Dwight Howard Magic couldn't stop the Testosterone Enanthate Dosage Bodybuilding Knicks' leading scorer and the NBA's only unbeaten team.
With Jason Kidd providing a fourth quarter spark and Mike Woodson's team playing the type defense it is capable of, the Knicks defeated Orlando, 99 89, to improve to 5 0, their best start since the 1993 94 team went 7 0 and made the NBA Finals with Pat Riley as coach. Smith each notched 21. Redick, who finished with 18. But the Magic, which had held a six point second half lead, was held to just 13 fourth quarter points on 5 for 16 shooting.
"This is the fifth straight game we haven't allowed over 40 points in the second half," Woodson said. "That just tells me our defense is right where it needs to be. When we do have to get stops, we were able to get it done."
The game was the first of a three game road trip that continues Thursday in San Antonio and concludes Friday in Memphis.
"It's only five games into the season," Anthony said. "I've been saying the whole time we're going to take it one game at a time and enjoy it. As long as we're having fun playing basketball, whether we win or lose we can accept it."
Anthony wasn't having much fun as he struggled to adjust to buy cheap jintropin online the physical nature of the game. It was refreshing to see an officiating crew allow the teams to compete as only 23 fouls were called, including nine against Orlando. The Knicks attempted 11 free throws, including three for Anthony.
"We thought we were getting kind of funky whistles so we had to play better and through the calls," Smith said. "During practice we get on each other about waiting for calls and expecting calls, so today was more of an emphasis, forget about the refs and play our game."
Anthony had to be "Jintropin (Gensci Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd.)" especially careful not to protest Testosterone Propionate Street Value too vigorously after picking up a debatable first half technical for spiking the ball.
Slowly, the Knicks are starting to develop chemistry, particularly on defense. They did allow 53 points in the first half to an Orlando team that is without Hedo Turkoglu, Al Harrington and Jameer Nelson. The Magic starts E'Twaun Moore at point guard and the impressive Nikola Vucevic at center. Two rookies, Harkless and St. Bonaventure's Andrew Nicholson, scored 10 and 11 points, respectively.
With the Knicks trailing, 80 79, early Testosterone Propionate 2 Week Cycle in the fourth, Anthony took his "buy cheap jintropin online" first rest of the second half while Kidd's 3 pointer gave the Knicks the lead the good. Kidd then added a lefty runner in the lane, and Smith's step back jumper made it 86 80. Anthony's first basket of the quarter made it 88 82, and on the ensuing possession he buried the Magic with a three pointer from the wing. Orlando lacked the firepower to fight back.
It was the first time in five games that the Knicks were tested in the fourth quarter and Kidd played nearly 10 minutes and contributed five points, one steal, one assist and plenty of leadership.
"Right now, we're just at the beginning of this journey," Kidd said. "We'll find out (how good we are defensively). The big thing is we believe and trust in one another."
