The Cleanthony Early Era in New York (the state) has come to an ignominious end.

In other news, Chasson Randle won the D-League Player of the Week award following his insane scoring outburst. Here’s a nice little interview, where he credits being out of the mask for his increased efficiency from beyond the arc:

Maurice Ndour and Marhsall Plumlee were sent down to the D-League on Tuesday. Big Poppa Plums struggled somewhat (9 points, 10 rebounds, 5 turnovers), while Ndour put up 22 points and 7 boards in the game:

Both Ndour and Plumlee were recalled to the big club after the game.
