We reported in today's Sunday Newsday that, according to sources, the Knicks had attempted to trade Nate Robinson -- as per his agent's request -- to the Memphis Grizzlies for former UConn guard Marcus Williams and a draft pick.

One source said the deal didn't go through because Robinson exercised his veto power to squash the move to Memphis. He has this right because the Knicks signed him to a one-year contract.

I had heard just before Christmas that there had been some talk with Memphis regarding Robinson, but a source with the Grizzlies denied there was anything in place. This weekend, however, a second source told me it was Robinson who k!lled the deal.

His agent, Aaron Goodwin, on Dec. 19 asked Donnie Walsh to trade his client if he was not going to be part of the rotation for the rest of the season. But the following day, Robinson said his preference was to stay with the Knicks and Saturday at practice -- a day after he celebrated his return to the rotation with a 41-point performance against the Hawks -- he re-iterated his feelings.

"This is home for me," he said. "I don't know anything else."

Scoreboard watching:

The Knicks (13-20) have one of those must-win moments tonight at the Garden against the Indiana Pacers (10-22), one of 10 sub-.500 teams the Knicks will face in the next 14 games in January. Next up are the Bobcats (13-18), who currently holds that coveted 8th seed in a tie with the Bucks (13-18).

The Knicks, however, may not just be playing for 8th anymore. Consider they are a game behind 8th and just two behind the Bulls (14-17) in 7th and - amazingly - 2.5 games behind the Raptors (16-18) for 6th.

Knicks head coach Mike D'Antoni took Nate Robinson off the bench on Friday night and received 41 points.

Robinson, who was benched for 14 straight games, helped New York defeat Atlanta in overtime by scoring 21 of the team's final 25 points.

"He's playing," D'Antoni said of his change of heart. "I'm not going to grasp straws. Once you start to go down that road, I'm going to go down that road for a while.

"We're going with him."

The coach said he went to Robinson to help provide an offensive spark.

"We needed an offensive spark because I thought we were sputtering the last four or five games," D'Antoni said. "It seemed like we were slipping.

"I knew he could give us that. I just hope that the intensity, the level of concentration on defense, all of that stays the same. If it does, then he becomes a real good player for us and that's what we need."

Knicks legend Walt Frazier believes that LeBron James could become as big as Kobe Bryant if he decides to play in New York.

"I think LeBron would gain in stature by coming to the Knicks," Frazier told the New York Daily News. "I think if he signed with the Knicks, he'd be right up there with Kobe. By being in L.A. and playing for the Lakers and winning four titles already, I think Kobe is above LeBron. I think playing in L.A., in that market, does that for him. But I think coming to New York would help LeBron get to be on Kobe's level."

LeBron may already think he's at the level of Kobe, but Frazier also added that he'd immediately become the best player in team history.

The legend said that despite the fact that he and Willis Reed suited up for the Knicks, New York has never had one of the top two players in the NBA -- expect for perhaps in 1970 when Reed won the NBA MVP and Finals MVP awards.

"But if he were to play in New York, he'd be even bigger than he is now," Frazier said. "He'd enhance his position."

A source told Alan Hahn of Newsday that Nate Robinson exercised his right to veto a trade that would have sent him to Memphis for Marcus Williams and a draft pick.

Earlier, a source with the Grizzlies denied that a deal was ever in place.

Robinson appears to be back in New York's rotation after his 41-point performance Friday night.

Robinson had a hella proformance...propz. I was in a bar with a few Hawk Fans talking trash too me when the Knicks was down 14. I told them the Knicks was gonna win. I hated Nate..but he deserves my props.

D'antoni needs to figure out how to use this rotation. I read Larry Hughes might be benched now? I dont get it with D'antoni. He should be sitting Gallinari when that foool is streaky.
A CP sighting after a Nate Robinson sighting and crazy performance? Coincidence? I still say your a closet Nate fan. We know...

Nate, Jeffries, Hughes to HOU for McGrady. I did it on the ESPN Trade Machine and it works, but Donnie keeps saying "it's not that simple".
I wish Curry & Jeffries would pull guns on each other like Gilbert & Javaris did...only I wish they'd actually pull the triggers.
You're probably wondering why Nate & Marcus are playing...let's just say I had a few champagnes last night and made some dumb promises.

Larry Hughes picked an odd time to complain about being replaced in the rotation by Nate Robinson. A game after Robinson scored 41 points in his first action after a month-long benching and moments after the Knicks rolled to a 43-point blowout win over the Pacers, Hughes spoke out about being dumped from the rotation and Mike D'Antoni's failure to communicate the move to him.

"Nothing was explained to me," Hughes said after he recorded his second straight DNP-CD.

He then said the changes to the rotation is "not a good way to play the season, I mean, going back and forth. This is my second or third time now, it's getting old."

I asked Hughes if he had any interested in playing during the fourth quarter, which was mostly garbage time in a game the Knicks led by as many as 48 points, just to get some run. Hughes was the only active player who did not get into the game.

"I'm here to play, this is something different for me, whatever's going on right now," he said. "Not really, man. I wasn't into it to get out there for 12 minutes, so let those guys finish up the game and move on to the next game."

D'Antoni had mentioned that Hughes groin injury, which caused him to miss three games in mid-December, had impacted his game somewhat, but Hughes said, "I'm fine, man. I'm 100 percent."

He said his noticable drop in production since the injury was due to a reduction in his playing time.

I wasn't playing much when I did come back," he said. "It's on paper, we can look at it . . . I feel like when I'm out there playing, I contribute to the team."

Here's what we found in the month of December, which represented the start of Robinson's benching and the team's turnaround:

Before Hughes missed three games (Dec. 17 at CHI, Dec. 18 vs LAC and Dec. 20 vs CHA), Hughes averaged 30.7 minutes per game in the first seven games of the month, and averaged 13.4 points per game, shot 37.5 percent from the field with 36 a.ssists and 20 turnovers in 30.7 minutes per game. In the five games after his return, he averaged 2.2 points per game, shot 13.6 percent from the field (3-for-22) and had eight a.ssists and eight turnovers in 14.4 minutes per game.

True, the playing time was down, but so was the production. Still, Hughes says he was demoted because of the injury. I asked him if he found the timing of his complaint somewhat questionable, considering how well the team played that night, Hughes replied,"Definitely" and then continued.

"We did start our winning streak when I was playing, so it kind of goes both ways. You never want to stop what your team is doing, you always want to contribute. But when you were part of the turnaround and the things that helped start winning games and now, since I've been injured, I'm not. That's an unwritten rule in our league, you never lose your spot coming back from injury. I feel like that's what happened."

Hughes pointed the finger directly at D'Antoni, though he never called him out by name. His gripe was not just about being pulled from the lineup, but that D'Antoni never went to him to explain the decision.

"I think it's easy to commiunicate," Hughes said. "We're grown men. It's a long season, you always want to have dialogue and talk things out."

When it was mentioned that Eddy Curry had a similar complaint about D'Antoni recently, Hughes said, "Like I said, I definitely want the dialogue. I think it helps. Guys know where they stand, you can voice opinions on both sides and there's nothing wrong with voicing opinions . . . Just to have communication, I think that goes a long way."

So I then reminded Larry that Al Harrington said sometimes it's up to the player to go to the coach to open up the lines of communication. Hughes said he already did that at the start of the season, when he was a DNP-CD in the first two games of the season.

Not even talking to Donnie Walsh about the situation seemed to be an option.

"I'm really over it, man," he said. "The mind-games and all that stuff, I'm getting up there in years. I'm over it."

After the Knicks' 43-point win over the Pacers, Larry Hughes complained to the media about Mike D'Antoni's decision to remove him from the rotation.

With his 41-point explosion Friday night, Nate Robinson has taken Hughes' spot off the bench.

Hughes said D'Antoni's changes to the rotation are "not a good way to play the season; I mean, going back and forth. This is my second or third time now; it's getting old." He also complained that D'Antoni did not communicate with him.

Hughes is in the final year of his contract.

"I'm really over it, man," Hughes said. "The mind-games and all that stuff. I'm getting up there in years. I'm over it."

ALAN HAHN

The Knicks spent most of the previous decade as a laughingstock of the NBA. But two games into 2010, they enjoyed one of the biggest laughers in the NBA this season.

Against a tired, undermanned Indiana Pacers team, the Knicks went up by 48 three times before rolling to a 132-89 win before yet another sellout crowd last night at the Garden.

The win was the second straight and 11th in the last 17 games for the Knicks (14-20), who are a half-game out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with more than half of the season remaining.

Momentum clearly is continuing to build for Mike D'Antoni's team. "We have a long way to go," he said. "But hopefully, we take steps toward getting to where we want to get to."

The 43-point win eclipsed the Knicks' largest margin of victory for the season and tied the sixth-highest mark in franchise history. The franchise record is 48 points in a 130-82 win over the 76ers on April 21, 1994.

"It's a good feeling. We've had teams do that against us, too," said David Lee, who had 22 points and 16 rebounds for his 10th 20-10 game of the season. "The biggest thing is taking that and extending the lead and not letting a team back in the game."

The stunning dominance does come with a bit of a disclaimer. The Pacers (10-23) are without several key players, such as all-star Danny Granger (torn plantar fascia), Troy Murphy (sprained ankle), rookie Tyler Hansbrough (inner ear infection) and rugged center Jeff Foster (back).

Then again, it was the same group that scored 122 points in a win over the Timberwolves the night before. But against the Knicks, they managed only 16 in the first quarter and were down by 32 at halftime. The margin reached 48 once late in the third quarter and twice late in the fourth quarter, the largest lead any team has held in the NBA this season.

Before that, the Knicks' largest lead of the season was 41 points during a 126-99 win over Phoenix on Dec. 1.

Wilson Chandler scored 23 points, Danilo Gallinari added 20 and Chris Duhon had 18 points, seven a.ssists and no turnovers in 25:07.

Lee, who struggled in the previous game against Atlanta's Al Horford, had eight points before the first quarter was halfway completed as the Knicks took a 20-5 lead with 6:45 left. That opening run was capped by an electrifying driving dunk by Gallinari, who slammed it over 7-2 center Roy Hibbert. Gallinari then paused for a pose-down for the crowd.

Nella sua faccia! (That's Italian for "In your face!")

The emergence of the Knicks' two young talents, Gallinari and Chandler, is an encouraging theme in the Knicks' recent success. Their importance to the future of the franchise - read: a talented supporting cast to lure a star player in free agency - is almost equal, but their games, and personalities, are quite different.

"It's kind of weird because Wil's quiet; Wil gets a dunk and he does absolutely nothing while Gallo, he'll give you a little something-something," said Nate Robinson (six points, 2-for-11 shooting after scoring 41 points Friday against Atlanta).

"It's just fun to see Gallo, he has a little charisma to him. He has a funny side. Wil is just like a plain black-and-white cartoon in the back of the paper. And Gallo is the one with color."

Damn, I haven't seen a game like that in a long time. Well, I have, but we were the team who was always on the other end of it.

Ever since that Denver game a little over a month ago, this team has basically come out and competed EVERY night. We're actually competitive with the top teams in the league, and winning against the teams we should beat (minus the Nets game, and Sacramento a few weeks ago).

I liked seeing JHill get some shine at the end of the game, his jumper is smooth. I'm interested to see what we do by the deadline, given all the grumblings from players who have been in and out of MikeD's rotation. Something has got to give.

It was right before the Suns game, during that stretch of solid play. I thought it started with the Denver game, but after looking at the game logs I guess one could say it began with the Boston OT game (I thought the Denver game was b4 that). But we got blown out by the Lakers and Sacramento in the 2 games after that.

The Denver game is really where we started to play well night in and night out. That is right about the point D'Antoni shortened the rotation, and the team began to develop chemistry and consistency.

Will's Turning Up the Thrills
With much of the recent attention on Nate Robinson’s return to the rotation and the Knicks’ memorable performance against the Pacers, Wilson Chandler has quietly become one of New York’s most consistent players during one of the best stretches of the season.

“Wilson every week is getting better,” Knicks head coach Mike D’Antoni said before Sunday’s 132-89 win over Indiana. “He’s learning to understand how to use his three-point shot, how to drive and how to mix it up and not just rely on his outside shots. He’s really good at going to the hoop.”

Chandler is averaging a career-high 14.6 points on a career-best 45.8 percent shooting this season. But it’s his play over the past week that really deserves some recognition. With his game-high 23 points against the Pacers, Chandler has reached the 20-point mark in three of the previous four games and the Knicks have won three of those four matchups to improve to 14-20 and move within a game of the eighth seed.

Chandler might be in his third year but he’s already playing like a veteran, especially when it comes to defense. On the same night Robinson scored 41 points in Atlanta, Chandler pulled in a career-high 17 rebounds. The forward is also averaging a block per game over his last four and has been asked to defend guards, forwards and centers all season.

“He guards everyone on their team and if you watch him defensively he’s doing the things that a veteran learns over the years,” D’Antoni said. “He’s just really solid in the last month.”

Chandler has been spending extra time working out with a.ssistant coach Kenny Atkinson and gives credit to the Knicks’ coaching and training staff for his improved play. As he improves, the Knicks improve. He’s a major reason why thy have won 11 of the previous 17 over the past month.
