Suns 107, Knicks 105: Scenes from the wide-open 3-point dagger we all knew was coming

You bet your ass the Knicks lost.

NBA: Phoenix Suns at New York Knicks Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

Carmelo Anthony’s potentially game-winning three rolled round and round the rim, yet in the end it fell harmlessly to the ground as New York flushed yet another game down the toilet. Thanks to this loss New York has now been swept in their season series by the Phoenix Suns, worst team in the Western Conference. Tank on, playas. Tank on.

These two clubs — not exactly known for their heady play on either end of the court — put on a few Keystone Kops routines in this one.

This one might have set a new NBA season-high for “most passes thrown to a teammate who wasn’t looking for a pass.”

Willy Hernangomez didn’t play in New York’s last game, and Jeff Hornacek looked likely to hand him yet another DNP-CD by the third quarter. But with Kyle O’Quinn struggling, the coach made way for Willy in place of Joakim Noah in the second half, and the kid was special.

Courtney Lee returned to the starting lineup, and threw down some quality threes and dunks.

Yet in the end it was Devin Booker with the back-breaker. Clyde even called it.

Nice defense, guys. Recap to come.
