Good effort.

Crap. I mean, great game, but ... crap. The Knicks kept up with the Oklahoma City Thunder for 46 minutes, grabbed a late four-point lead, but couldn't overcome Kevin Durant's late-game Durantness and Arron Afflalo's late-game misses, falling 128-122 in overtime.


Kristaps Porzingis was wildin' out there in the first half, shooting Steph Curry-esque threes and yamming on fools.

- Coincidence?

Jerian Grant had himself a nice game, what with the dishing and the dunking and whatnot:

Derrick Williams continued to do Derrick Williams things, but also added a surprising bundle of mid-range jumpers:

Langston Galloway was clutch as hell ...

... until he missed a huge free throw near the end of OT. Still, a fantastic game from him.

So many good things; so little to show for it in the end. Recap to come.
