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.

Remember during the preseason when it was evident that a slow start was forthcoming? A couple of early wins changed that mindset, but now that the Knicks have lost six in a row, reality has set in. I guess when you’re 2-7 no game should be considered winnable, but a beatable Utah Jazz team enters …
