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.

Highlights!

Thanasis:

Jimmer:

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.
