If this is what a three-day layoff produces, the New York Knicks wish every game was once per four days. They probably put together their best first-half of the season tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Knickerbockers currently lead 60-40 as the two teams rest at half. And this is the case without Carmelo Anthony doing much. He’s not forcing the issue, only compiling eight points on 3-of-5 shooting.
