Well, well, what can we see here?
First thing that pops out? Knicks, as a team, had 27 assists. Portland, as a team, had 8. Wow. In addition to Ray-Ray's 14, Fields and Stoudemire had 4 each, and Turiaf had 3. Positively 1970knicksish, gentlemen.
The Knicks were outrebounded, but only slightly, 43-40. Playing a team with Marcus Camby on it, that's not bad. Speaking of Camby, he had 16 rebounds and 6 blocks. I still love Marcus Camby. But he was 0-6 from the floor with 4 turnovers. See, there's still a bit of Anthony Randolph in him. The Knicks gave up their usual high number of Offensive rebounds (14) but overall, any time Turiaf grabs 10 rebounds, the Knicks are going to win, based on my completely unresearched opinion.
Speaking of which, 8-9 shooting from Ronny is like a getting a pony, not because you asked for one, just because someone thought you might like one. And it's a magic, bearded pony. That brings you a delicious meal of macaroni and baloney when you are starving and lonely.
The Knicks didn't take a lot of three pointers - only 12, which is a low number for them. They made 5, which is a good number. I wonder if that was strategized or if it just happened within the flow of the game.
Anyway, that's all I've got. Can't get anything else to rhyme with 'Ronny', except phony, which he is definitely not.
