Well, I think it’s safe to say that we are all shocked and left to ponder how the Knicks uncharacteristically spent the 4th quarter collectively forgetting how to execute an NBA offense. The Knicks, a model of 4th-quarter consistency in this league, finally succumbed to the laws of mathematics and played poorly to finish the ga—okay, that’s enough blatant sarcasm, even for me. The Knicks tripped and fell down the metaphorical flight of stairs that is the 4th quarter for what seems like the 76th time this season.

The Knicks travel to New Orleans, where they take on the tanktacular New Orleans Pelicans, who have taken a page out of the 1997 San Antonio Spurs’ playbook by resting their star player and trying to get as high of a draft pick as they can.
