Suns 113, Knicks 111 (OT): Scenes from the season’s first true heart-breaker


NBA: New York Knicks at Phoenix Suns Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

This game sucked. Ass. The Suns are a crappy team of goons, and on this evening the Knicks thoroughly out-crapped them for three quarters. They mounted a furious comeback to take the lead, then went into prime late-game Knicks offense toward the final seconds. Kristaps Porzingis, who carried the team most of the evening, missed a shot at the end of regulation, and fouled out in overtime after gifting New York a three-point lead. The Knicks promptly lost their fire and were snuffed out by Eric Bledsoe. 113-110, Suns. Ugh.

Suns rookie Marquese Chriss is, without a doubt, worse than a million Josef Stalins for what he did to our beloved Unicorn on this play:

Kristaps got a little bit spicy after the incident, but overall the Suns got the better of the play by the end of the third.

But Kristaps would explode in the fourth quarter partnered with a quirky bench unit of Kyle O’Quinn, Justin Holiday, Lance Thomas and Ron Baker.

Brandon Jennings sucked. Derrick Rose got hurt. Joakim Noah missed a gazillion free throws. Such is life. Recap to come.
