The New York Knicks simply didn't have any energy last night as they lost 93-83 to the Sacramento Kings.
Kings guard Beno Udrih scored a game-high 29 points to lead his team to a victory that came mostly because of excellent Kings defense.
The Knicks, who returned to New York on Thursday morning at 6 AM following a 4-game road trip that included the Spurs and the Lakers, looked flat as they faced off against a Kings side that was on a 12-game road losing streak and holds the second worst record in the NBA.
Toney Douglas scored 21 points off the bench and Amar'e Stoudemire led the Knicks with 25 points and 13 rebounds. Ronny Turiaf left the game after 16 minutes with a hip injury.
Stoudemire appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman on Thursday night, wherein he joked about how the players do in fact listen to coach Mike D'Antoni.
Gallinari did not play and he remains side-lined due to injuries.
The Knicks will play again on Monday at 1:00 PM in New York against the Phoenix Suns.
