Rockets 119, Knicks 97: Scenes from the Knicks getting shelled so hard it broke Stingy’s login

Started OK, got away fast

NBA: Houston Rockets at New York Knicks Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Alex: Welcome, friends! That sure was a loss, alright.

In other news, the Russians are trying to silence Stingy and shaq’d his account tonight, making it so he couldn’t log in. He hasn’t been heard from since. Below, find his last words sent to me by carrier pigeon:

Well the streak got struck. It wasn’t a total downer however. The kids got some extended minutes. It wasn’t all hearts and stars but it was exciting to see Damyean Dotson and Frank Ntilikina stretch their claws.

Strangely, in a 22 point loss, the Knicks had some excellent team play in the early going. There was total connectivity on both ends and an exciting togetherness. Smart, quick sets got them out in front. Then the bench came in and the Houston sapped the synergy.

The Rockets launched 27 threes in the first half (52 overall) and just ravaged the Knicks’ second unit. The Knicks went on the type of drought we’ve come seen before. It just feels like a night where the Rockets got super hot more than anything though.

The bright side was Frankie Teardrop passing people open and ripping and running on James Harden a few times. Oh and Tarik Black’s precision execution. Dotson just completely drops him in a ditch.

The Knicks are gonna be fine. Recap on the horizon.
