This picture is pretty cool, but you know what’s not cool? Chauncey Billups with bruises all over his legs and Amar’e Stoudemire spraining his ankle. Read on.
* As you just saw, Amar’e and Chauncey hurt themselves during last night’s win, but nothing too serious. The two could miss tomorrow night’s game against New Jersey. Here’s Billups’ (legendary) take on it:
“I want to play,” Billups said. “I feel I’m back and playing well. I don’t want to miss any time. If I can play I’m going to play. The smart thing is just to be smart.”
* Precise Knickerblogger recap.
* Times recap, with another quote from Chauncey talking about his thigh:
“I’ll be all right,” he said. “It’s not like the last one.”
* Postgame interviews are fun when the Knicks win.
