The Spurs took advantage of a Knicks team missing its defensive anchor to get an easy win in New York. Even with a strange starting lineup featuring Boris Diaw and Marco Belinelli, the Spurs' offense was scorching from the start and their defense was good enough to allow them to get a sizable early lead that they would not relinquish. Tony Parker wrecked havoc against a soft perimeter defense that relied on Bargnani to help inside. The Knicks needed their offense to be in top shape to even have a chance in this one and with J.R. Smith looking rusty in his season debut and Stoudemire looking like a shell of his former self, that wasn't in the cards.

After trailing by 16 by the break, the Knicks seemingly gave up trying as the Spurs tightened their defense to cruise to the finish line with no one playing over 26 minutes. That's fantastic news considering they will battle the high-paced Sixers tomorrow on a SEGABABA. Danny Green was great with 24 points and ten boards and Kawhi Leonard showed he can make an impact off the bench, when the team needs him to. As great as the win was, it's hard to take away anything of value because the Knicks were truly terrible. We can only hope for a repeat performance by the Spurs tomorrow.
