(Newser) – The Knicks rallied past the "Fire Isiah" chants in the first half and then the Milwaukee Bucks in the second half to claim a 91-88 victory tonight. One day removed from the third-worst loss in franchise history, Jamal Crawford and Zach Randolph each scored 25 points for New York, which has won three of four. Elsewhere in pro hoops:

  • No LeBron, no problem - for Toronto, that is. Despite missing Chris Bosh, the Raptors got career highs in points from Andrea Bargnani and Carlos Delfino in a 91-82 win over Cleveland. King James sat out with a finger injury.
  • New Orleans improved to 8-2 on the road, beating the Hawks thanks to 22 points and 17 rebounds from David West.
