You’d be excused if the Tim Hardaway Jr. injury news earlier kinda took the wind out of your Knicks sails. But, tonight, the Knicks were out to prove that they might still be alright, and they made a nice little comeback from a first-half deficit to beat the Grizz, 99-88.
Yes indeed, tonight was a fun one all around. Let’s take a gander at some moments.

No, but seriously. Dude had a VERY ROBUST +19 in the box score tonight! SUPERCOOL!
Maybe I was the only one who noticed, but Enes Kanter played at least three different sports tonight:

Best (or worst, depending on your viewpoint) of all, Kristaps Porzingis didn’t play that great (by his standards) and the Knicks still won! He did have two sweet moments at the end though:

So, yeah, fun game! Bask in the refreshing waters of this victory. Recap on the way.
