When Mike Woodson moved from assistant to interim head coach on March 14, 2012, the Knicks were 18-24 and looking to get back in the win column.
With help from Steve Novak and the rest of the Knicks’ shooters, Woodson’s career got off to a great start. The Knicks thumped Portland, 121-79, with the aid of Novak’s 20 points—via six treys—in under 20 minutes of burn.
Novak went 7-of-11 from the field that night, and came away with a steal on the defensive end. His 3-point exhibition last March proved his worth to New York.
