Take THAT, Greensboro.

The Westchester Knicks finally got back into the win column with a steady 95-86 win over the Greensboro Swarm. Playing at home in the Westchester Civic Center, the W-Knicks jumped out to a 17-7 run to start, and took an 11-point lead into the half. They never led by fewer than eight points the rest of the way. Nice.

Luke Kornet (two-way contract): 21 points (7-12 shooting, 5-8 from beyond the arc), 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals.

Sometimes I remember that Luke Kornet is a two-way contract player, so technically he could play for the Knicks whenever, and I imagine him playing with Kristaps in a super-big 5-out lineup, just bombing all the threes. I’m not sure it would work in a real NBA game, but it would be pretty delightful.

Isaiah Hicks (two-way contract): 17 points on 7-13 shooting, 12 rebounds, 2 assists

Trey Burke (affiliate player): 20 points on 7-14 shooting (0-3 from beyond the arc), 3 rebounds, 2 assists

I wish I could steal Burke’s dribble hesitation moves and floater and give them to Frank Ntilikina.

The W-Knicks are now 4-3 with a game Sunday afternoon.
