The Knicks Bounce Back by Bashing the Pacers

Don’t look too sad, at least you’re filthy rich!

I thought the Knicks were getting Earl Barron?

Earl Barron in his first game back, signed with the Bucks, he played 15 minutes and got 9 boards, 5 of them on offense. Good thing the Knicks don’t need any big men.
