Boston Celtics 103 – New York Knicks 101 – Game Recap

Losing to the Celtics is always hard and stings always deep, that’s for sure. Anyway, to put it into bizarro Dark Knight terms, this wasn’t the loss we deserved but it was the loss we needed. I’ll gladly take another competitive loss, propelled by a lot of young players, even if it means dropping one to those untrustworthy leprechauns. A fun game all in all, with some unlikely heroes, a scary but ultimately mild injury to Knox and a Ron Baker layup! The good: – Enes Kanter (17 pts, 15 rebs, 2 ast, -6 +/-) had a very quiet first half, …continue reading

New York Knicks 105 – Brooklyn Nets 107 – Game Recap

Mick Jagger used to sing “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you will find, you get what you need!”, and that’s exactly what we got tonight, and maybe more. A highly competitive loss where our youngsters play a lot of minutes, learn their trade and generally play well? Count me in for a season of this! Maybe, just maybe, sprinkle a win here and there as not to make my dopamine level drop too low. By now you should be acquainted with my writing gimmicks, so let’s not waste any more time and let’s …continue reading
