Now that the Heat’s streak is over and the Nuggets are limping into the postseason, the Knicks are the hottest franchise storming through the league. In a matchup pitting the Eastern and Western Conference's No. 2 seeds, the Knicks prevailed in a 125-120 point shootout behind Carmelo Anthony's 36 points. For the first time in 13 years, the Knicks reached 50 wins, while franchise milestones are dropping by the wayside in the midst of their 12 game winning streak.
