Things sure have changed since Jeremy Lin hit one of the most memorable game-winners in Air Canada Centre history last month.

The Knicks have gone from winners, to losers, to winners again, but at the expense of former head coach Mike D'Antoni, who has been replaced on an interim basis by Mike Woodson.

The team's commitment to defence has done a complete 180 under Woodson.

Lin, while no longer a phenom, has still looked pretty good (19 points, seven rebounds and six assists in his last game) and Carmelo Anthony has even managed to get himself back into the good books of some Knicks fans of late.

The team has only been surrendering about 89 points a game since Woodson took over.

"They're playing really good defence right now," was the assessment from Raptors head coach Dwane Casey ahead of Tuesday's meeting in Manhattan.
