The San Antonio Spurs breezed by the New York Knicks 110-91 on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Leading the way for San Antonio was LaMarcus Aldridge, as the 32-year-old power forward from Dallas, Texas had a game high 29 points, while pulling down six rebounds and passing out two assists for the contest.

The Spurs have been vulnerable on the road this season, as the visitors had only won eight of their 18 road games. San Antonio has been rock-solid at home in Texas, however, with a record of 17-2 on the year, a mark that is the best home record in the Western Conference.

The New York Knicks continue to be a confusing team this season, as a squad with extremely little talent could squeeze themselves into the Eastern Conference Playoffs.

As the teams approach the midpoint of the campaign the Knicks have a record of 18-19, good enough currently for ninth position.

Michael Beasley led the way for the Knicks, as the 28-year-old journeyman power forward scored a team high 18 points, while pulling down nine rebounds and dishing out two assists.

San Antonio will stay on the road and travel down the East Coast to the Wells Fargo Center to square off with the young Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday, before heading home to welcome in the Phoenix Suns.

New York also hits the road, as they will head to Washington to face off with the Wizards on Wednesday, with games on tap against the Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks.

The Spurs areĀ 5.25 to win the Southwest Division, with the Houston Rockets 1.14.
