Guhhhhh. The Knicks did almost everything right. They played one of their worst second quarters ever. They let Tim Hardaway Jr. and Langston Galloway gun away as they pleased. Derek Fisher brazenly benched Cole Aldrich down the stretch of his best career performance. They blew a double-digit lead, then blew it again and again until the Magic finally caught on and came back.
But the Magic were worse. And Hardaway, insufferable turdgoblin that he is, finished an absolutely dismal night by hitting late free throws and a crazy deep three off a broken play.
If the Wolves lose to the Warriors tonight, New York and Minnesota will be even in the standings. This is all so disgusting. Joe's recap goes up later.
