2012 Game Preview – Knicks @ Bobcats

New York Knicks (6-10, 3-4 away) @ Charlotte Bobcats (3-14, 2-6 home) The Knicks are on the verge of their longest losing streak in two years, and will head down to Charlotte to face the struggling Bobcats, who are losers of four straight.

Amare Stoudemire, PF 10-19 FG | 4-5 FT | 12 REB | 0 AST | 25 PTS | -2 In his …continue reading
