Clippers 119, Knicks 115: Knicks fans are in metaphorical jail, Charles Oakley is in actual jail

This can only happen to the Knicks.

NBA: Los Angeles Clippers at New York Knicks Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Knicks blew a 10-point lead and lost to the Los Angeles Clippers for like the 50th consecutive time Tuesday night. Whatever. The Knicks got some clutch buckets from Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis, but old friend Jamal Crawford hit some even more insane clutch shots to put LA ahead. I’m fairly certain this means Phil Jackson will now take on Crawford’s albatross of a contract. DeAndre Jordan out-muscled the Knicks to the tune of _____ points and ____ rebounds. Melo’s attempted game-tying three fell short, and yadda, yadda, yadda...Knicks.

Oh, and Charles Oakley was tackled by MSG security and taken to jail. Just another night at the World’s Most Famous Arena!

Carmelo Anthony looked especially frisky one day after being compared to former CBA burnout Michael Graham, dropping 28 points on 10-20 shooting and a team-high 9 rebounds.

Kristaps Porzingis finally got his stroke back, pouring in 27 points on 10-19 from the field (4-7 from three, where he has been struggling mightily of late).

Derrick Rose scored 20 points, including 10 in the third and 0 in the fourth. He also had 8 assists, which was cool.

Oh, and the Knicks are pressing charges!

Recap to come. Stay classy.
