In our P&T slack chat, Joe mentioned with about a minute left in the fourth quarter that this was the “fakest fake comeback ever.” He was right. After being down by as much as 27 points in the third quarter, the Knicks cut their deficit to 9 with a bit less than two minutes remaining in the fourth. But the Wizards put it away almost immediately after that. So, yeah, this was a sad SEGABABA.
Let’s check what few highlights we have.
Mindaugas Kuzminskas had a really cool 5 minutes in the second quarter:
Kristaps Porzingis did Kristaps things:
Brandon Jennings had 10 assists! Here’s an especially pretty one:
Derrick Rose played like butt tonight, but he did throw down this cool jam:
So, yeah. Fake comeback. The Knicks were never gonna win this game with the way they played for the first 2 and a half quarters. Whatever. Stingy’s got your recap.
