For the first time all season, the New York Knicks have won three straight games in the 2014-2015 season and on Friday night, it was the two guys who are under 10 day contracts that lead the way for the team in the 4th quarter that helped seal the win over the Orlando Magic in a 113-106 win at Madison Square Garden.

The Magic had taken a 96-94 lead with 4:01 left when Langston Galloway's three pointer allowed the Knicks to re-take the lead at 97-96. Orlando and New York then traded slam dunks; with the final one being made by Carmelo Anthony to put them up 99-98 with 3:20 left.

Lance Thomas' jumper with 2:41 left put the Knicks up 101-98 and then with 2:02 left, Jason Smith missed a jumper, but Thomas' put back slam dunk put the Knicks up 103-98 and got the crowd at Madison Square Garden on their feet.

But the sealing blow for the Knicks was a three-pointer from Galloway with 58 seconds left gave the Knicks a 108-102 lead; the Knicks went on to win 113-106 to win their third straight.

Langston Galloway’s Future with New York Knicks

Langston Galloway was doing the same things he's showing now as a member of the New York Knicks during the summer league. However, he had to prove himself and work hard as a member of the Westchester Knicks before getting his shot with New York. Will his success be short lived or does he have a future with the Knicks?

When thinking of next off-season and the fact that the New York Knicks should have around $32 million in cap space for free agency and a lottery pick in the 2015 NBA Draft most fans are focused on impact players.

While the acquisition of impact players is a must for the Knicks moving forward it's equally as important to find supporting players to pad the roster with. That's something the Knicks seem to have found in Langston Galloway.

Since being signed Galloway has given the Knicks a second scorer to support Carmelo Anthony. That's led to many acting like he should be expected to be one of the Knicks top players moving forward.

Galloway should not be looked at as the modern day John Starks. Yes, both went undrafted. Yes, both could shoot from behind the arc. Yes, both play defense.

Orlando Magic’ Tobias Harris Eyeing New York Knicks

Take a second and think about where you've previously read about the connection between Tobias Harris and the New York Knicks. That's right, once again Knicks 101 was ahead of the curve. Now that other media outlets have caught up it's being reported that the Orlando Magic forward is interested in signing with the Knicks in the off-season.

At 6'8", 225 pound Harris is undersized for a power forward. However, he's played the four since joining the Orlando Magic. If the Knicks were to sign him that's where he'd be playing.

In the off-season Tobias Harris will be a restricted free agent (RFA). That means he'll be harder to sign because the Magic will be able to match any offer Harris receives.

That could cause a team to overpay Harris for his services. That being said, Harris young enough and has enough promise as a player to justify making an investment in him.

ESPN Drops New York Knicks Broadcast

The New York Knicks have won their last two games so things are certainly looking a bit better for the worst team in the league. However, to say this team has struggled would be a gross understatement. In fact, Knicks games can be hard to watch sometimes. Apparently ESPN has noticed and has decided to drop the teams broadcast in favor of a celebrity bowling event.

Just when you think it can't possibly get worse ESPN goes out of it's way to let you know just how bad the New York Knicks are this season. Sure, the Knicks can be hard to watch. They've been behind their opponents at times by 20,30, even 40 points. But a celebrity bowling event? Ouch!

That's right, ESPN has decided to drop the Knicks broadcast in favor of airing a celebrity bowling event. Can you imagine? Things have gotten so bad that executives actually believe they'll generate more ratings for a celebrity bowling even than they would with an NBA game.

Think about that for a second. It's actually hard to fathom but it the idea must hold some water because clearly ESPN would stick with the Knicks if it would pay off. Apparently it wont, which tells you everything you need to know about the Knicks this season.

Charles Barkley Has Issues with Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony as Starter for 2015 All Star Game

By Doug Rush

On Thursday night, New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony was named as a starter for the Eastern Conference team in the 2015 NBA All Star Game; a game that will take place on February 15 in Anthony's own building; Madison Square Garden.

Anthony, who is one of the league's top scorers with 24.0 points per game and has already been a seven-time All Star, eight if you count the one in 2015 and has been selected to the All Star Game since the 2010 season, seems like a fitting choice to start the game. It's his building, his fans, his city, and his season has been All Star worthy.

Yet, former NBA player, Hall of Famer and current TNT analyst Charles Barkley had an issue with Anthony being named a starter because well, when does Barkely not have issues with things, especially when it comes to the Knicks? And on Thursday night, "Sir Charles" had an issue with Anthony being named a starter because of their terrible season.

"I do have a problem with that," Barkley said on TNT. "I just don't understand. … If I'm a fan, you have to be honest and realistic."
