Knicks fans celebrating the big victory pic.twitter.com/si5bGrkKIF— Pig Bumpkin (@bigpumpkin4real) April 13, 2017
The Knicks emerged...um...victorious in a wild, back-and-forth final quarter, knocking off the Philadelphia 76ers by the score of 114-113. The game winner came on a baseline jumper from — you guessed it — Maurice Ndour. Marshall Plumlee blocked Nik Stauskas on the other end. Plumlee had a 14-point, 11-rebound double-double. These are all things that really happened in an NBA game.
The Timberwolves lost, of course, so the Knicks end the season tied for the sixth-worst record in the league. Pending the results of a coin flip — which Minnesota will win, of course — the Knicks will end up picking 7th at least.
Carmelo Anthony played what might have been his last game as a Knick!!!! Melo didn’t try to go too hog wild, but did display some vintage Melo’esque step-backs, isos and post jiving.
If Justin Holiday just played his final name as a Knick, he at least went out as an example of how to carry yourself on both ends of the court. New York’s super sub dropped 20 points and 5 rebounds on the Sixers.
Please come back, Justin.
Courtney Lee demonstrated a bit of veteran scoring savvy in his limited minutes. Eight points on five field goal attempts for the Knicks’ starting shooting guard...followed by zeroes in every other category. Whatever.
Recap to come. This is all very Knicks.
