Raptors 103, Knicks 93: Scenes from a game the basketball gods shouldn't count

New, comments

So few good Knicks.

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Knicks generally stayed in the game against the Toronto Raptors despite missing Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis and Jose Calderon. That has to count for something, right? How about a draw?

Welp, until the basketball gods find it in their hearts to strike this game from the record, the Knicks will be saddled with a 103-93 loss.

As one might expect, Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan scored 52 points between the two of them. The Knicks had their own Kyle -- Kyle O'Quinn -- who took took many shots and jumped several centimeters off the ground. Langston Galloway took fewer shots, scored more points, and did this:

Lance Thomas did what Lance Thomas do (i.e. make insane circus shots, seemingly with his eyes closed):

Arron Afflalo led the team in scoring but got his shot block roughly $Texas times:

Robin Lopez grabbed a few rebounds ...

... and smacked an uppity Raptor:

And Sasha Vujacic played! Lord, did Vujacic ever play!

Recap to come.
