The Knicks started a bit slow out of the gate, falling behind by as many as 14 points in the first half. But New York's offense began clicking on all cylinders in the second quarter as the Knicks scored 38 points and even took the lead before heading into the locker room with a one-point deficit.

Their strong second frame set the stage for what would become a nail-biter down the stretch.
