That game will forever go down as “The Sasha Vujacic Game.” Or, it won’t. Vujacic managed 13 points, 6 rebounds, 2 steals, and 3 three pointers in his 24 minutes of play. Let’s hope Fisher doesn’t take that as a sign he needs more run. That could never happen, right? RIGHT?
In a game that can only be described as a pre-All Star break Pre-Season game, the Knicks hung around. That’s all you can really say because the Raptors were never in any real danger of losing the game, even when the Knicks managed to pull it to one in the middle of the third quarter. The Raptors feature really good guards, while the Knicks mainly feature human beings in athletic wear. Jerian Grant’s good numbers tonight look better than his perplexing, herky-jerky, indecisive play. He had a few moments at the end of the game in desperation time, but overall he looks overmatched. Afflalo had 20 on decent enough shooting, but he was blocked 5 times because he’s an Earthbound sort of life form like the rest of us. Some day the Knicks will employ a guard who can take over a game, but until then….we’ll always have Vujacicity….or something like that.
Shake it off, friends. Be kind to one another. We learned nothing from this “game.” Better days are ahead, as long as our unicorn takes his rainbow medicine. For tonight, if you feel angsty, don’t snipe in the comments. Watch this and let your troubles melt away:
