What went wrong? Well, once again the Knicks didn’t shoot threes—15 total as a team. For some reason Sixers guard T.J. McConnell turns into Steph Curry when he plays at MSG (15 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists). Joel Embiid and JJ Redick were both game-time decisions, both played, and contributed 25 and 24 points, respectively. The Knicks kept it close throughout, even tying the game with 5 minutes remaining, but McConnell and Redick came back in and pulled some more bullshit and the Knicks generally executed like crap.
Kristaps Porzingis blocked Joel Embiid, so that was something.
Enes Kanter was amazing—31 points, 22 rebounds—so that was something else.
Michael Beasley was the inbound man on a key fourth-quarter play. Michael Beasley!
Kanter smartly screens for a secondary cutter. What the heck is Lee doing here?? pic.twitter.com/rxikfDP36j— BBALLBREAKDOWN (@bballbreakdown) December 25, 2017
Oh well. Harrison will hit you up with a recap later. Until them, chow down on some figgy pudding.
