The Knicks lost at the buzzer, life is so unfair

Basketball is pain.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Win? At basketball? I don't even know what that means anymore.

New York lost the mother of all heart-breakers, as Trey Burke topped Carmelo Anthony's game-tying three-pointer with 2.3 second remains by sinking a cold-blooded baseline jumper at the buzzer:

Jazz win, 102-100. Knicks get another ping-pong ball or two.

The Knicks, who were already missing Amar'e Stoudemire, lost Iman Shumpert less than one minute into the contest. Shump landed awkwardly following yet another botched New York fast break, injuring his hip. X-Rays were negative...they're always negative.

Melo did his best to make up for the absense of New York's second and third-leading scorers, dropping an NBA season-high 46, including a banked-in three that appeared to send the game into overtime:

Alas...

Pablo Prigioni lost his damn mind in the fourth quarter and it was glorious. He scored 10 points in final frame alone, sneaked like he never snuck before, and even bricked a legit heat-check floater.

Alas...

Recap to come. Go get drunk.
