One reason the Knicks signed Metta World Peace during the offseason is his ability to perform in dire situations. Metta can be a veteran leader off the bench as well as an emotional spark plug.
World Peace was a huge factor in staging New York’s second-half comeback. He not only played with his usual emotional, up-tempo style, finishing with a nice stat line of 17 points and four rebounds. Metta has established himself as a stabilizing force for this team that won't quit, no matter the score.
