2016 Game Notes: Knicks 84 Spurs 94

Since this worked out well last time, I’m going with my game notes again. 1Q Duncan & Lopez trade baskets to start the game. A battle of the fundamentalists. Porzingis on Aldridge. Lama backs him up & Zinger goes for a non-shooting foul. This should be fun to watch. I’m having flashbacks to a skinny Camby going against Tim Duncan and David Robinson. Zinger then gets the ball from Calderon & does as smooth of a finger roll as you can expect from a 20 year old 7-3 footer. Loose ball rebound tapped to Jose by Porzingis. He’s everywhere right …continue reading

2016 Quick Recap: Knicks 84 Spurs 94

A few quick notes about tonight’s game: * The Spurs just took the Knicks out of their comfort zone. It seemed like every other play New York was having a hard time getting the ball to an open guy or taking a contested shot. In a game like basketball, all those low percentage shots add up… * Porzingis will be remembered for doing this (unless ‘Melo broke his neck landing on him later in the game): But the rookie showed more than that single play. He had some great rebounds and blocked shots, and showed energy all over the court. …continue reading
