Stingy was right.
Just last week our own Jonathan Schulman posited that point guard Tim Frazier, recently released by the Portland Trail Blazers, would be a fine target for the Knicks' 15th roster spot. The Knicks themselves have reportedly held internal discussions on signing Frazier. If only there was a chance to see him in action, up close and personal.
Well the Knicks' front office got their chance to watch Frazier -- if they turned on MSG2 Sunday afternoon, that is -- and it came at the expense of their own D-League affiliate, the Westchester Knicks. Frazier came up just shy of a triple-double -- 18 points on 8-9 shooting, 11 rebounds and 9 assists -- as his Maine Red Claws curb-stomped the W-Knicks by the score of 126-88.
Tim Frazier (He's been linked to the Knicks, so we might as well bask in his magnificence)
Poor Travis Trice, who set a career high in points just one day earlier, looked completely out of his depth against Maine: 9 points on 3-10 shooting, 3 assists and 4 turnovers. Jimmer Fredette came off the bench in his Westchester return and wasn't much better: 12 points on 5-14 shooting, 3 rebounds and 3 assists. This was as brutal as any Knicks-Celtics game from 2008 to 2010.
The W-Knicks are now two games behind Maine in the standings. Get your shit together, guys. You're our only hope for playoff basketball!
