The New York Knicks have never lost in the era of the Kristaps Porzingis-Willy Hernangomez frontcourt. Of course, it also helps that the youngsters have help in the form of Carmelo Anthony, who scored 21 points in the second half as the ‘Bockers shocked the San Antonio Spurs, 94-90.
Yes, the Knicks gave up 90 points. It really happened.
Kristaps Porzingis played one of his best defensive games in a long, long time. He was blocking fools.
I mean really blocking fools.
Kawhi Leonard had a good game — because he’s a very good player — but he’ll be seeing Kristaps looming over his shoulder in his nightmares.
Courtney Lee had one of the most Anti-Knicks plays I’ve seen in a while. After Rose telegraphed a pass, Lee hustled back to cause a steal and found Melo for a clutch-ass three.

MELO CATCH AND SHOOT
Melo passed Charles Barkley on the all-time scoring list, which is delightful.

Willy grabbed 9 rebounds, nabbed 3 steals and scored 12 points, none more impressive than this absurd reverse layup in the final minutes.
