For the last road game of the regular season, only nine New York Knicks players dressed to play. With the second seed assured and the playoffs just days away, Coach Woodson's decision to rest most of his starters against the Bobcats made a great deal of sense.

The game was also a chance for the role players on the team to take advantage of some extra playing time.

With the second string on the floor all night and just two bench players really available to spell the starters, the Bobcats came away with a 106-95 win. There were some important takeaways from this game. Here are mine.
