When Carmelo Anthony headed back to the locker room, the offensive effort had to come from somewhere else. The players off the pine answered the call, doing the heavy lifting from that point on.

In addition to Stoudemire and Kidd’s efforts, J.R Smith added 16 points, seven rebounds and seven assists while Steve Novak notched 15 points and three rebounds of his own. In total the Knicks’ six substitutes combined to outscore the starting lineup 70-32.
