Coach Gets with the Program, Nate Saves the Day

A couple days ago, Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni took a lot of flack from the media for refusing to play Nate Robinson in the final minutes of a close game that his team lost. After all, Robinson's been the NBA's third highest scorer since the All-Star break, trailing only Dwyane Wade and Kobe Bryant.

Last night, though, D'Antoni heeded their call, and the 5'9" guard who has been dominating this league of men a foot taller did it again, scoring a remarkable 32 points in 32 minutes--including 10 in the game's final 5--to lead the Knicks to the victory. Shake n' bake, little man.
