Knicks Win Fifth Straight Game With 82-79 Victory Over 76ers

March 22 (Bloomberg) -- Amar’e Stoudemire scored 21 points for the New York Knicks in their fifth straight victory, 82-79 over the Atlantic Division-leading Philadelphia 76ers.

Jeremy Lin went 10-for-10 from the free-throw line, including eight in the final minute, and had 18 points for the Knicks, who pulled within three games of the 76ers in the five-team Atlantic Division of the National Basketball Association.

The Knicks are 5-0 since interim coach Mike Woodson took over after the resignation of Mike D’Antoni. The Knicks had lost six games in a row when D’Antoni stepped down.

“I learned that our guys are not going to buckle,” Woodson told reporters. “They’re going to continue to stay strong and keep pushing. I honestly believe they think that they can win every game now.”

New York held a 19-11 lead after one quarter, and ended the first half with a 43-35 advantage at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

Jrue Holiday had 16 points and Andre Iguodala, Lou Williams and Jodie Meeks each had 13 points for the 76ers.

The Knicks are in the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, 15 games behind the Chicago Bulls.
