The Knicks came into this game trying to snap a season-high skid after a few awful games.

It wasn't always pretty, but that's exactly what they did.

The Knicks were losing after the first quarter, but thanks to good defense, great bench production and a fantastic performance from Chris Copeland, they took a 100-87 win over the Hornets at home. They now improve to 24-13 and will soon fly to London to take on the Pistons.

As for the Hornets, they were simply unable to put the ball in the basket all game long. The Hornets shot 40 percent from the field and just 17 percent from deep, and combine that with their 15 turnovers and you're practically handing the other team a win. The Hornets are now 11-26, and they will shake off this loss and get set to take on the 76ers on Tuesday.
