The New York Knicks came away with a convincing win over the Phoenix Suns on Friday night.
The New York Knicks got back on track Friday night with a 120-107 win over the Phoenix Suns after getting blown away by the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night.
Here are a few takeaways from Friday’s win.
Michael Beasley came up big
Michael Beasley did almost nothing to help the Knicks up until Friday night, when he helped keep New York from collapsing in the third quarter.
Michael Beasley had 10 points in a little over 90 seconds to help the Knicks increase their lead to 15 with 11 minutes to play.

Despite a slow start, Beasley finished the game with 11 points and four rebounds, while connecting on five of seven shots from the field.
Tim Hardaway Jr. with another good game
Tim Hardaway Jr. fell off a little after his big game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but had a nice game against the Suns with 21 points, three rebounds, three assist and one steal during his 32 minutes on the floor.
Like I’ve said before, if the Knicks can get 20 points a game from Hardaway, they’ll be in good shape offensively.
Jarrett Jack is the glue that keeps the offense together
The Knicks better not release point guard Jarrett Jack because he’s been an assist machine for them this season. Not only did he provide eight assists, but he also added seven rebounds. He only finished with two points, but the Knicks don’t need Jack to score.
