NO CANADIAN CAN STOP TIM HARDAWAY!

NBA: Toronto Raptors at New York Knicks Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

41-10. Forty-one to ten. That was the score of the third quarter in Friday’s clash between the Knicks and Toronto Raptors. Before 41-10 the Raptors hit New York where it hurts—where it usually hurts the Knicks—beyond the three-point line, hitting 10 triples in the first half en route to an 11-point lead. After 41-10 the Raptors damn near stole this game away from a tight Knicks club, until the poise of Tim Hardaway Jr. (career-high 38 points) and the starters halted Toronto’s fourth-quarter momentum.

Fortunately, 41-10 is difficult to overcome. Toronto hit one field goal in the quarter. The Knicks hit 16. It was awesome.

Enes Kanter got his very own poster in the first half at the expense of Serge Ibaka.

But the night truly belonged to Timmy. He was dunking swishing, even blocking and dishing.

He had the Garden fired up like I haven’t heard in a long, long time.

Recap to come. Happy Timsgiving!
