March 19th 1991: Patrick Ewing dominates the Charlotte Hornets for the third time this season
After scoring 50 and 38 points in the previous 2 meetings against the Charlotte Hornets, Patrick Ewing dominated once again with 41 points in a 97-79 victory on the road. Ewing scored 41 on 18-25 from the field, but also grabbed 8 rebounds, dished 7 assists, and blocked 3 shots in the dominant effort. Ewing led or tied the team in all 4 categories.
Ewing was the sole dominant force for the Knicks as he scored nearly half the team’s points. Only he and Kiki Vandeweghe scored in double figures for the team. Outside of Vandeweghe, Ewing scored nearly as many points as the rest of the roster. Most of the team struggled to shoot from the floor outside of Ewing. The win gave the Knicks 17 road wins, which surpassed their total from the previous season.
