The Knicks lost but Chasson Randle and Ron Baker were good so it's OK

Orlando White 95, Knicks 90

The New York Knicks of Summer were felled by Orlando Magic White squad in a surprisingly explosive offensive battle, 95-90. Some benevolent YouTube wizard put up a highlight package:

The first half was the Chasson Randle show. The greatest Knicks guard in Summer League history (sorry, Nate Robinson) scored 13 of his 17 points before halftime:

Randle may have cooled down in the second half, but he was picked up by Ron Baker. Our man Ron finished with 22 points (8-15 shooting, 4-9 from three), 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 steals.

Baker may have scored more points, but that Randle jumper looks wet as hell. The kid can handle the rock, too. I love Chasson Randle.

The Knicks will play their final Summer League game on Friday, at a time yet to be announced. Poor Cleanthony Early probably won't even get a minute of action. That kid has the worst luck in the world.

Until Friday, good chums: Keep on Chasson the dream!
