Spurs crush Knicks 120-89, win 4th straight

Danny Green's 24 points leads San Antonio

(Continued)

Anthony and Andrea Bargnani both scored 16 for the Knicks, who were outrebounded 51-33 and fell to 2-4 after a 6-0 start last season.
"I'm not worried but we do have to figure it out," Anthony said. "Whatever it is we have to figure out quickly, but as far as being worried, I'm not worried about that. But we need to figure it out."
The Spurs scored just 76 points a victory over Golden State on Friday, but had everything working offensively right from the opening tip Sunday.
Green hit two 3-pointers in the 10-0 start, Marco Belinelli's 3 made it 17-4, and the Spurs hit 13 of 18 shots while opening a 35-17 lead after one quarter, matching their highest-scoring period of the season.
The lead grew to 24 points in the second, the Spurs repeatedly moving the ball to an open player before the Knicks knew what was happening. San Antonio was making roughly two of every three shots for much of the first half and took a 61-45 lead into the locker room after shooting 62 percent.
"We just played our game and we made shots," Parker said. "When you make shots it helps, and the ball movement was great."
Smith, who ended the postseason in a miserable shooting slump, opened this season the same way. He missed all five shots in the first half, unable to shake the rust after appearing in just one preseason game following summer knee surgery.
"I didn't feel rusty at all. I just missed a lot of shots, didn't get to the basket like I wanted to and overall I didn't have a good game," Smith said.
By the time he made a 3-pointer with 8:43 left in the third quarter for his first basket, the Knicks trailed by 26 points. The Spurs went up by 30 a few minutes later on another 3 by Green, and fans loudly booed when Amare Stoudemire missed both free throws with a little less than 3 minutes left in the period.
