It took the Oklahoma City Thunder just a touch over seven minutes to build enough of a lead to last the rest of the night. Defining this game as the worst loss of the season would be an understatement.
It’s not who you play, but when you play them, and while Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have been practicing for the last few days, why rush them back for a game against the Carmelo Anthony-less Knicks? Please?
The Knicks were roughed up against the Rockets on Monday, and he next leg of their three-game trip won’t be any easier. Without Carmelo Anthony, the Knicks will be hard-pressed to keep pace with the Mavericks, but that’s why they play the games.
The Texas Triangle was a temporary turning point for the Knicks last season, and although they’ll only be seeing two-thirds of it on this week’s upcoming road trip, they could use a rally once again.
In New York sports, the sky is always falling, but the Knicks aren’t a complete lost cause. At least not yet.
The Knicks cut a deficit of over 20 points to single digits in the final minutes, but it was too little too late, as the Bucks held on for a four-point victory.
Last year’s 15-win Milwaukee Bucks already have five wins underneath their belt this time around, and they’ve done it without needing a major offseason splash. Most will think that this game is a pushover for the Knicks, but away from The Garden, New York will have their work cut out for them against a team …
The Knicks got back in the win column yesterday, and despite going 1-3 on last week’s home stand, look to be headed in the right direction. They’ll have more opportunity to build on that success, as this week’s opponents have a combined record of just 7-21.
New York football surely isn’t cutting it this year, so why not try out a little Sunday afternoon Knicks? We can’t promise the results will be any better, but with the Nuggets in town, there will be plenty of familiar faces back at Madison Square Garden.
The Knicks were in and out of this game all night, and after fighting back from five down with over a minute to go, were eventually sunk by a Trey Burke fadeaway as time expired. Seems about right for a team that has now dropped seven consecutive games.
