Knicks 103, Wizards 65: "Total domination."

Well, it turns out the Wizards are so dreadful that even the Curse of Robert Randolph couldn't make this game competitive. Washington just isn't a basketball team right now, and--though there was a brief lapse there in the second quarter-- the Knicks mostly exploited them for that.

Like Doug Chu said in the thread, New York dominated a sloppy, silly game behind a very nice bounce-back effort from birthday boy Baron Davis, some nice offensive work by Carmelo Anthony, and some combination of good defense and possibly the worst offense they've ever faced. Instead of a normal shot chart, I'd like to see a vertical chart of where the Wizards' shots landed in relation to the basket. Their misses visited previously unexplored frontiers of the backboard and open air. Impressive stuff.

Perhaps I'll post some more notes in the morning. In the meantime, I just hope Iman Shumpert's ankle (which he turned in the third quarter) isn't hurt too badly. It didn't appear to be too rough of a sprain, but I guess we'll know more in the next day or two. Good night, all!

(Side note: Philadelphia and Boston both lost tonight. Milwaukee's on pace to win.)
