Dallas Mavericks 114 – New York Knicks 90 – Haiku time

Hoo boy, such a shitfest. I’ll say it clear right at the beginning: no recap this time. It doesn’t make any sense to recap this flaming turd of a game, where nobody played well and, ahem, we got a case of crowd-pleasing schizofrenia from our coaching staff. About that: in the third quarter, somebody in the crowd started a “we want Kanter!” chant for no apparent reason. It’s the third game in a row that happens, and unless there is a really dedicated Turkish community that routinely sends a representative to every Knicks game until Enes gets bought out, I’m …continue reading

New York Knicks 92 – Charlotte Hornets 101 – Game Recap

For the third time in a row, our Knicks couldn’t reach the triple-digit threshold, and for the second game straight they looked like they could finally pull it off. This time it was a very, very close game until the end of the third quarter, when the two teams were perfectly tied at 71. From there on, our guys kept on misfiring while the Hornets suddenly caught fire from three, and the game was suddenly over thanks to a flurry of Malik Monk trifectas and a few inspired minutes from an unusually lethargic Kemba. Good minutes from Parker and Willy …continue reading
