The New York Knicks continued to roll by and, yes, you can still refer to them as the undefeated New York Knicks as they defeated the Orlando Magic 99-89 to improve to 5-0 in the season.
Carmelo Anthony, once again, led his Knicks to victory as he dropped 25 points and grabbed eight rebounds in this performance.

Of course, he could not do it on his own as J.R. Smith added 21 points and Raymond Felton also added 21 as the guards combined to score almost half of the teams points.
Smith, surprisingly, shot efficiently going 9-14 from the floor and was 2-2 from three. Felton struggled a bit taking 22 shots and making just nine. As a team, the team shot close to 50 percent as they wrapped this one up with 49 percent shooting.
The Magic looked to have this game under control early in the first half as they led 53-49 after the first 24 minutes of play. They had excellent ball movement dishing 28 dimes as a team, which was 13 more than the entire Knicks team.
Speaking of the half, what was supposed to be a cool and quick entertainment segment went wrong as Jaime Woode, an Orlando Magic cheerleader, fell on her head as she fell of her partner's shoulder during a routine.
Woode was carried out on a stretcher and waved to fans with both hands as she was taken off the court.
Unfortunately for the Magic, similar to Woode, they all took a fall as the Knicks rallied back in the second half and simply outplayed the Magic outscoring them 50-36.
The Knicks will now have the tough task of maintaining perfect during the 2012 season as they will face the 7-1 San Antonio Spurs. The Magic will play a struggling Detroit Pistons team on Friday.
