Raptors 116, Knicks 101: Scenes from a leisurely afternoon in Crapville

LOL Knicks you suck.

NBA: New York Knicks at Toronto Raptors Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Clyde Frazier, the Bard of Rockin’ Steady, put it best: “This is the worst ever.” The venerable clothes horse has seen his share of Knicks basketball over the years, but Sunday afternoon’s 116-101 loss in Toronto against the Raptors might have been actually been the worst. Lance Thomas, starting in the place of the injured Kristaps Porzingis, got conked in the head by an elbow and had to leave the game after two minutes. Toronto scored 42 points in the second quarter. The Knicks scored 8 points in the third (and had to seriously hustle to get 6 of those points near the end of the quarter).

I have a pretty bad head cold at the moment, but I swear, Clyde and Breen’s voices began to slow down precipitously during a 21-2 Toronto run in the third quarter, until they sounded like Lyle Lovett and Flea during the “Great San Francisco Acid Wave” scene in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Highlights? Um, Derrick Rose hit a shot at one point:

This moment was pretty funny:

And this moment was representative of the game as a whole:

Recap to come. God bless.
