Wassup in Westchester: The Jimmer Fredette & Thanasis Antetokounmpo show!

W-Knicks 108, Iowa Energy 95

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

The Westchester Knicks' 108-95 victory over the Iowa Energy was the story of two NBA call-ups. Jimmer Fredette -- buoyed by news that he will be signed to the Big Knicks next week -- had one of his finest all-around games of the season: 24 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists, 1 turnover and 2 steals.

Not to be outdone, former Knicks call-up Thanasis Antetokounmpo scored a season-high 29 points on 11-17 shooting, including 5-10 from beyond the arc (???). Looks like somebody was trying to remind Phil Jackson that he's still hanging around, waiting for another shot at the big time.




You'll notice Thanasis repeatedly nailing threes from the short corner. He needs to keep on getting familiar with them corners -- Thanasis shoots a respectable 36.8% on corner threes, and an astonishingly terrible 10.8% on above-the-break threes. The corners are your friends, young man.

As for Jimmer, there's no better way to prove to your detractors that you're not a one-dimensional player than by nearly posting a triple-double. If this is the final game of the Jimmer/Thanasis pairing, at least they went out with a bang.
