Knicks 109, Pistons 95: Scenes from a shockingly easy New York victory

I thought the Knicks could win; I never expected this.

NBA: Detroit Pistons at New York Knicks Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

Oh sweet tank, why hast thou forsaken us? The Knicks stomped a mudhole in the buttockses of a reeling Pistons team, 109-95. Man, it sure fun to watch the ‘Bockers — especially the youngsters — play strong basketball on both sides of the court.

Derrick Rose played one of his finest all-around games of the season, dishing and swishing efficiently to the tune of 27 points, 6 assists and 0 turnovers. But the ball movement came from every (non-Kyle O’Quinn) member of the team. Look at this passing...LOOK AT IT!

Kristaps Porzingis put together one of his finest games of the season: 25 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, 3 blocks. This is when you know things are going well for the Unicorn — when he starts tossing in these dipsy-doodles.

Kristaps essentially ended the game — and Tobias Harris’ entire family line — with this block.

Willy Hernangomez played the role of sidekick, only dropping 15 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists. Slacker.

The defense also held the Pistons in check after the first quarter. These Knicks were playing the passing lanes with a vengeance.

Recap to come.
