Baron Davis walked slowly and with a tall, crutch-like cane under his right arm when he arrived at the Monsignor Kett playground Tuesday night.

Baron Davis’ knee injury much worse than thought: partial tear of patella tendon, complete tears of ACL and MCL. 12 month recovery Davis would be age 34 when trying to make that comeback. A guy who has struggled to come back from injuries in recent years such as the herniated disc in his back that has limited him these playoffs. Davis, when he was going right, was always one of my favorite players to watch. Too often, do to conditioning and more, we had to catch glimpses of what he was capable of — in transition he could be amazing. Too many days he settled for threes (early in the clock), but when he attacked he could score or dish as well as anyone. NBCSports.com

It was hard for everyone to watch Baron Davis' ugly knee injury. Amar'e Stoudemire said he nearly started crying. "I was almost shedding a tear on the court to be honest with you," Stoudemire said. "It was something I don’t want to see again, from none of my teammates especially. Baron is such a great guy off the court, and as a teammate he’s a phenomenal locker room guy. To see that, I dropped down to one knee and said a prayer while he was on the ground." Sulia

The longest streak is over, Baron Davis is done but the Knicks live to see another day. Barely. Dwyane Wade came up short on a last-second 3-pointer as the Knicks, with Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire missing key free throws in the final minute, survived for an 89-87 Game 4 victory. By avoiding the sweep, the Knicks won their first playoff game since April 29, 2001. They had lost an NBA record 13 straight postseason games. Game 5 is Wednesday in Miami at 7 p.m. No team in NBA history has ever come back from a 3-0 series deficit. Anthony led all scorers with 41 points including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 54.5 seconds left that made it 87-84. Anthony was then fouled shooting a three but he missed two of three free throws and LeBron James answered with a three-point play with 20.9 seconds left. New York Daily News
