Atlanta’s Al Horford provided the final attempt one second too late, allowing the New York Knicks to claim victory for the third consecutive time over the Hawks last night at Madison Square Garden. Wilson Chandler provided a huge block for the Knicks with 1.7 seconds to go before Horford came up with the rebound, only for the horn to sound and keep the score at 99-98 in favor of New York. Danilo Gallinari led the Knicks with 27 points as David Lee controlled the inside with 19 points and 13 rebounds.
“He was the star of the game. He did an unbelievable job for us. He did a great job forcing Joe (Johnson) into tough shots,” said Lee of Gallinari. “Sometimes they went, but he did a good job of forcing him into them. Gallo played well on both ends for us.”
Johnson ended the night with 22 points and five assists. Josh Smith scored 25 for the Hawks with a side of 10 boards. Atlanta will continue their road trip to DC to face the Washington Wizards tomorrow before returning to Phillips Arena to prepare for the Detroit Pistons on Saturday. The Knicks are scheduled to start their five-game road trip against the San Antonio Spurs tonight at 8:30 PM.
The New York Knicks featured six players in double digits to cruise by the Detroit Pistons 128-104 yesterday at the Madison Square Garden. Al Harrington led the campaign with 26 points and eight rebounds. Former Celtics reserve Bill Walker shot 9-for-13 to produce a career high 22 points for his new squad. Tracy McGrady and David Lee supplied 15 apiece as Eddie House came off the bench for 17.
The 21-39 record posted this season doesn’t sit well with the young, talented Knicks roster. Walker and House since being traded in February have collectively stepped up for the struggling organization. “That’s just natural ability,” said Walker. “I always thought I could play on this type of level. It just took a while for me to get the opportunity.”
The Pistons have lost their last five contests looking ahead to their next road challenge against the top seeded Cavaliers tomorrow night. New York is next scheduled to face the Toronto Raptors Friday before hosting the New Jersey Nets the following day.
Derrick rose was able to battle through his hip injury to lead the Chicago Bulls with 29 points as they went on to trounce the New York Knicks 118-85 last night at the United Center. Both organizations are currently fighting to make a run at one of the last playoff spots, competing to bring in Houston Rockets veteran Tracy McGrady.
The Knicks are considered frontrunners due to the young talent they have to offer between Jared Jeffries, Jordan Hill and Larry Hughes along with a pair of future draft picks. ESPN’s Marc Stein speculates for the deal to finalize tomorrow according to a league source. Chicago isn’t out of the chase just yet, as they proposed to give up Brad Miller, Tyrus Thomas and either Kirk Hinrich or John Salmons to land the 2X NBA scoring champion. New York will try to redeem themselves against the Bulls tonight in their rematch at the Madison Square Garden. Game time is set for 7:30 PM.
Austin, TX indie rock band Spoon will begin their 2010 North American tour in their hometown on Wednesday, March 17th before they take center stage at the Republic in New Orleans, LA the following day.

Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton are scheduled to ring in the new decade together February 18th-19th at the Madison Square Garden in New York City. The heavily influential singer-songwriter-guitarists will then part ways to headline a handful of concerts on their own. Before Clapton makes his way over the Atlantic, he’s set to perform in cities through the month of March that include Orlando, Raleigh, New Orleans, Kansas City, Nashville and Pittsburgh.
Beck is planning to tour across the U.S. this summer starting April 16th at the Nob Hill Masonic Center in San Francisco, CA. Boston’s Bank of America Pavilion will host Beck on June 3rd before he arrives at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods the following day.
The two legendary musicians first paved their way to success through 1960′s English rock band “The Yardbirds.” Despite never working together at the same time, Clapton and Beck have been good friends for more than 40 years. Well into their 60′s, the two Rock & Roll Hall of Famers show no signs of slowing down. Purchase your Eric Clapton & Jeff Beck tickets right here with us at AceTicket.com!
The New York Jets (9-7) are set to rematch the Cincinnati Bengals (10-6) to kick off this year’s NFL post-season. After ending the Indianapolis Colts run at perfection in Week 15, Mark Sanchez and crew put on a show at home during a convincing 37-0 win over Cincinnati to notch the remaining AFC Wild Card spot.
This time around it may not be so easy for New York as they travel to Paul Brown Stadium, where the well rested Carson Palmer and Cedric Benson wait to give the league’s top ranked defense a run for their money. “We’re trying to win the thing,” said NY head coach Rex Ryan. “That’s our goal. To get to this point and not have that as your ultimate goal, then I don’t think you’re going to be successful. I think you have to visualize yourself being successful and then try to go out and make it happen.”
Chad Ochocinco has been struggling lately with knee problems but should be cleared to suit up on Saturday. In his last matchup against stand-out cornerback Darrelle Revis, #85 was held to zero receptions for the first time since 2003. Earlier this week Chad was concerned about the injury but later found himself practicing just two days later. He commended his teammates through his Twitter account, saying “really good practice today on both sides of the ball, we had Popeye’s for snack after practice, best 2 piece I’ve had n a while.”
The Jets have won seven of their last eight against the Bengals. Their only playoff meeting was back in 1983, which featured a 44-17 victory for New York. Jets vs. Bengals playoff tickets are still available right here with us at AceTicket.com!
Christopher Higgins notched the go-ahead goal with 1:30 left in the third block for the New York Rangers to win over the Boston Bruins 3-2 yesterday at Madison Square Garden. New York dominated the first two periods with a 2-0 lead, which led to a pair of Bruins goals supplied by Matt Hunwick and Blake Wheeler before Higgins eventually put the game to rest.
Bruins players and coaches believe they could have shown more consistency throughout the contest. “There is no doubt we have a lot of character,” said Wheeler. “I can’t even count the number of times where we’ve been down after two periods and we come out in the third and give a really solid 20 minutes. But it’s not good enough. If we compete for 60 minutes, it’s a different story.”
Boston will have to battle on without their leading scorer Patrice Bergeron, who was hit in the hand by a shot in the second fired by teammate Dennis Wideman. Bergeron is set to travel home as the rest of the Bruins head to Ottawa to matchup with the Senators. With Bergeron sidelined the organization will call to veteran winger Miroslav Satan to contribute immediately on the offensive end. Satan just recently signed a one-year $700,000 deal with Boston.
“I think this is a team which will have a chance to go deep in the playoffs and I think the way the team is built,” said Satan. “I think it could use a player like me.” The B’s will see the Rangers again on Saturday after hosting the Chicago Blackhawks this coming Thursday. Boston Bruins tickets are available right here at AceTicket.com!
The 2011 Winter Classic has been rumored to take place at Yankee Stadium and feature the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals. New York fans are thrilled to be up for major consideration after the league passed them by for the 2009 and 2010 events. Last year’s contest featured the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings at Wrigley Field. Fenway Park is scheduled to ring in the new decade, showcasing the highly anticipated regular season matchup between the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers.
Yankees COO Lonn Trost said they were very close to hosting the upcoming Classic that eventually found its way to Boston. “The NHL had issues with – it would have created too many logistical issues,” said Trost. “But we certainly were in discussions, and we certainly will continue to be. We want to do it.” Don’t miss the Winter Classic at Fenway in Boston, MA Friday, January 1st!
Free agent outfielder Jason Bay just recently signed a four-year $66 million contract with the New York Mets. The deal that includes a $14 million fifth year option will be confirmed later this week pending a physical. The 31-year old All-Star hit for an average of .267 with 36 home runs and 119 RBI’s for the Boston Red Sox last season.
Boston stand-out Kevin Youkilis didn’t want to see Bay leave the Sox, but at the same time realizes the Mets organization holds some promise for the future. “Jason was a close friend. A joy to play with him. Great ballplayer,” he said. “But it’s a business, things happen. It’s one of those business moves on each side. It just didn’t work out right. I wish him the best in New York. Hopefully we get to see him in the World Series.”
The Red Sox haven’t finished dealing just yet. There are reports that state their interest in free agent third basemen Adrian Beltre. The defensive specialist hit .265 with eight homers and 44 RBI’s for the Seattle Mariners in 2009. Check back right here at Ace for more off-season updates. Boston Red Sox tickets are now available!
