New York Knicks vs. Denver Nuggets
February 10, 2017
Nuggets 131, Knicks 123
The real way to punish Charles Oakley was to make him watch this game.
The New York Knicks, for lack of a better term, suck. Plain and simple. A team that scores 120+ points wins 9 out of 10 times. This time was the one of the ten. The Denver Nuggets, who aren’t exactly the cream of the crop of the Western Conference, came into Madison Square Garden and steamrolled the Knicks. The Knick defense, if you can even call it defense, continues to be horrible, as they made a mediocre Nuggets team look like the ShowTime Lakers. It’s time to accept what this team is: a bottom feeder.
This one is going to be short and sweet, because I hate the fact that I continue to repeat myself. Carmelo Anthony had another great scoring night and led the team with 31 points, but like, who cares? He continues to put up great numbers on offense, and the defense makes it so unimportant. Everyone wanted to see Kristaps Porzingis play center, and they got their wish, and it showed that he isn’t ready to play center in the NBA. Derrick Rose and Brandon Jennings were the starting guards tonight, and offensively it worked, but these guys need to get better on defense to be just awful. There’s a theme tonight ladies and gentleman, the defense is the reason this team will continue to lose, and lose badly.
Shout out to Jimmy Dolan and Phil Jackson for ruining the New York Knicks. We deserve better than this. By the way, the point guard from Washington, Markelle Fultz, is incredible. Look him up and pray for the first pick in the draft.
We recap the Hawks/Knicks game, talk about Cleveland beating the Lakers and then spend the rest of the episode talking to Mike Kurylo from Knickerblogger.net. We talk about how Mike got started, some of the moves from the Isiah era, misleading stats, Carmelo Anthony and other potential trades, Donnie Walsh, favorite all-time Knicks and favorite current Knick, Mike D’antoni, and hating the Heat.
