(SAN ANTONIO) — The New York Knicks are 6-0 for only the second time in franchise history. Raymond Felton had 25 points and seven assists, and the Knicks finished the game on a 27-11 run to beat the San Antonio Spurs (7-2), 104-100.
“We beat a great team tonight…well-coached team,” Knicks head coach Mike Woodson said. “It’s the first time I’ve ever won in San Antonio, so I feel pretty good about that.”
The win also snapped the Knicks nine game losing streak in San Antonio.
J.R. Smith scored 17 points and Jason Kidd added 14 for the Knicks who are now the only undefeated team left in the NBA.
The other time the Knicks started the season this well was the 1993-94 season. That season the team made the NBA Finals before losing to the Houston Rockets.
Next up for the Knicks: a trip to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies Friday.
